Question:
Failed Bone graft to Upper Gum: Due to severe infection, I have lost a considerable amount of bone to my upper gum (two front teeth).

I have had a bone graft operation, which I have just been informed has failed.

Do I have any other options to restore the area in preparation for implants? I do not want my mouth/lips to drop. ...Visitor from Liverpool England

Answer:
Find another surgeon.

Bone grafting is very technique sensitive. There are many bone grafting options available.

Until the proper foundation is present (bone) the implants should not be placed. Be patient. Each grafting cycle can take up to nine months in extreme resorption cases. The width of the ridge may need to be augmented prior to the height.

When the proper amount of bone is present the implants can be placed.
