Question:
Bone Grafts to Save Teeth? I have been advised by my new dentist that I need many implants due to bone loss.

I will also need bone transplant. Is there nothing that can be done before I agree to have teeth out as your 'Bioplant' makes me believe that if I can hold on to my teeth, maybe the bone, with help, could regenerate and I could keep my teeth?

Am I just clutching at straws? I have no pain, just bad pockets and some loose teeth. I can go to a hygenist regularily and will do anything possible not to have them out! ...Visitor from Israel

Answer:
First you must realize that I can not make a determination without x-rays and a clinical exam.

However, what I can surmise is that your teeth are in a hopeless situation and maintaining them in the presence of periodontal disease will only cause further bone deterioration.

I do understand the emotional issue with losing your teeth but, it may be best to cut your losses and move on.

If there would be any hope in preserving your teeth, I would look into the Perio Protect System. The Perio Protect System will work if you are diligent and committed to the program. Yo can research this on-line. Hope this has helped.
