Is it true that with bone grafting, all-on-four and etc, mostly anyone can get dental implants even if they lost teeth from gum disease?

In brief: Limitations

There are limitations to all treatments.
For example, you can get periodontal disease around implants. Please see your Dentist for an evaluation as to whether implants and crowns or implant supported dentures would be applicable for your situation. Your Dentist may recommend teaming with an Oral Surgeon or Periodontist, or may recommend that you see a Prosthodontist. Go for exam and advice.

In brief: With one exception

Patients should have healthy gums, enough bone to hold the implant and committed to good oral hygiene and regular post-op dental visits.

In brief: For the most part

Think of it this way: almost anything is possible if there is no monetary limit on what you want to spend to reconstruct jawbones that have atrophied due to tooth loss.
As long as there are no medical contraindications, grafting can usually be accomplished to provide the bone support that is needed.
