Grafting has to be done

by Mary

hi,
its preethi here.I'm 20 years old..i met with an accident and lost 2 of my teeth adjacent to the front teeth.I had undergone dental implant surgery and was waiting for it to heal and it's been around 5 months now.

Recently when i met my doctor she said that we cannot place the crown since there has been a lot of bone loss. she said it is due to the accident. Now she said grafting has to be done in that spot using the bone material from the same area and no external donor site and then the implant has to be placed again once it is healed.

I'm a little scared if the second time too it might become a failure. What are chances that it fails the second time too even after grafting is been done? do i have to take any precautions like including more calcium in my diet? please reply at the earliest possible..
thank you

YES YOU SHOULD GO FOR GRAFTING
by: DR FARHAN DURRANI

HELLO,
ACCORDING TO YOUR DESCRIPTION YOU UNDERWENT IMPLANT SURGERY AND IT SEEMS IT HAS FAILED.
NOW FIRST OF ALL YOU SHOULD ASK YOUR DENTIST TO COMPLETELY VISUALIZE THE DEFECT , CURRETAGE AND REMOVE THE GRANULATION TISSUE THEN USE DFDBA BONE ALONG WITH SOME AUTOGENOUS BONE FROM EXTERNAL OBLIQUE RIDGE OR SYMPHYSIS REGION OF MANDIBLE AND COMPLETELY COVER THE GRAFTED SITE WITH SOME MEMBRANE AND LEAVE THE SITE FOR AT LEAST 9 TO 11 MONTHS, MEANWHILE GIVE YOU A TEMPORARY BRIDGE MADE OF COMPOSITE,
YOU SHOULD MAINTAIN A STRICT ORAL HYGIENE ,OTHER ALTERNATIVE IF YOU GO FOR FIXED CERAMIC BRIDGE IT IS INVASIVE PROCEDURE WILL NEED SUPPORT FROM ADJACENT TEETH BUT ON LONG RUN THERE WILL BE AESTHETICALLY COMPROMISED BONE AT FAILED IMPLANT SITE WHICH EVEN THE BEST BRIDGE WONT COVER
SO MY ADVISE IS TO GO FOR BONE GRAFTING WAIT FOR 9 MONTHS, YOU WILL BE GIVEN A TEMPORARY BRIDGE WHICH ARE AESTHETICALLY OKAY THEN AGAIN GO FOR IMPLANT SURGERY

Connective-tissue grafts. This is the most common method used to treat root exposure. During the procedure, a flap of skin is cut at the roof of your mouth (palate) and tissue from under the flap, called subepithelial connective tissue, is removed and then stitched to the gum tissue surrounding the exposed root.
