Born without two of his teeth
by Doyle Melton
My 14 teen year old grandson was born without two of his teeth - (G & D)- one's next to the front upper teeth. He has been in braces for two years and his dentist used a method to make space for implants for the missing teeth.
Now out of braces, and wearing a retainer with two teeth attached - his dentist is ready to do a "bone graft" and do the implants. I question this as I thought the bone should be fully developed prior to getting implants - however dentist told me he is well developed and he is ready for the procedure ? Need some more input from others on my thoughts.
