Question:
Failed Bone Graft: My husband had a xenograft performed last year in preparation for a dental implant.

On his most recent dental appointment, for which he was to have the peg inserted, the dentist found that bone graft was no more than a simple membrane and would not support a dental implant.

He refuses to attempt another bone graft and feels my husband is no longer a candidate for an implant. Any suggestions? ...Visitor from WA

Answer:
Find a new surgeon.

Bone grafting is a very technically sensitive procedure. The training, skill and experience are key factors in the success of a bone graft.

Even under the best circumstances, certain grafting procedures are not completely predictable. However, they can generally be redone if necessary.

Find an Oral Surgeon who has great success with grafting. Ask lots of questions. Ask to see photographs of before and after photos.
