Leaving it alone could result in progression that becomes serious quite quickly. If it is a tooth problem, your dentist can help point you in the right direction. ...Read more

Help docs! I had 2 dental implant done in my front-upper jaw. Is this normal for bone-grafted dental implant?

Help docs! I had 2 dental implant done in my front-upper jaw. Is this normal for bone-grafted dental implant?

Yes: If the dentist performing the procedure determines that the site does not have enough bone,

you will need bone graft to help the implant stabilize. If there is not enough bone, the implant will fail.

check with the dentist to determine if bone graft is needed.
you can send me xrays for a second opinion
