Do granules of a dental bone graft move around? Like under your interior jaw bone near the extraction site.

Micromovement of graft will hinder the fibroblast migration and adhesion and interupt vascular genesis. Must achieve good clotting and full closure for graft stabilization. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Furthermore the pontic sits on the gum and would be in the way of any additional ridge height. ...Read more

For gum grafting, some periodontists recommend cadaver tissue, the roof of the patient's mouth, and lanap. Which of these three is the best?
Seek second opinion: Gum grafting does not always help solve the problem that you might have.

Is there any assumed guarantee on dental crowns? A few years ago, my former dentist put a crown on one of my molars. Recently, a part of the crown (near the gum line, between teeth) broke off, and food is getting trapped in the resulting gap, causing gum
There : There are no guarantees expressed or implied with any medical procedure, and it is unethical for any health care provider to do so. You do not say how old the crown is, but it is possible that something is breaking down under the crown. It could also be that nothing broke off, but in fact, you have a bone loss in that area resulting in a space and a bacterial/food trap. Was a recent radiograph taken? What did your current dentist tell you? This cannot be left untreated. From your description, and assuming you are correct that something did break off, it could be that a small piece of porcelain chipped off the crown. If the gold coping under the porcelain flexed due to a cavity in that spot, the porcelain could flake off. If there is a cavity, it needs to be taken care of. Even if no cavity, the food and bacteria being trapped will constantly keep the gum tissue in that area inflammed, which can lead to a periodontal defect. You should see your new dentist to determine what exactly the problem is and what would be the proper course of action. ...Read moreSee 6 more doctor answers
