I have a history of bones not mending.

by caren

can I expect problems with the implant being accepted?
I broke my right arm and it took forever to mend. I was on a bone stimulator for 18 months. Number 13 tooth has had a root canal and then broke off before the permanent filling could be placed. The Dentist wants to due a post and crown or implant. Either way I'll have a post in the bone. Should I be concerned and what can I do to improve the likelihood of a good outcome.

I don't think this will be a problem NEW

I don't think that the problem you had with your arm healing will be any indication that your bone may not integrate well around the implant post.

If your dentist feels confident that placing a post into your root and building the tooth up and placing a crown will be a good long term solution for your tooth that will be the most cost efficient, least invasion way to go. The pins or post that are placed after a root canal has been done are not placed directly into the bone, they are placed into the root of the tooth.

Opting to extract the tooth and get an implant if your dentist does not feel confident that the post and pins will work will be a good option. Dental implants have a very high success rate.
