Question:
My daughter has had a freeze - dried bone graft in her mandible after removal of a tumor. She is 7 years old. How does the bone become part of her? Can you recommend any reading on this?

The specialist plans to implant her wisdom teeth later on. This sounds good. How will this happen and what is the best age? ... Kim in Canberra, Australia

Answer:
Kim, the bone graft that was placed will take and your daughter's body will usually accept this. As far as the implants are concerned, she will probably have these when she is 16+ and the oral surgeon or periodontist will be better able to assist on that. I would also ask the specialist who performed the bone graft for information and I'm sure he/she will be able to assist you.
