Chin Implant Damage to Roots of Teeth
It is very, very unlikely that a chin implant in normal position would cause damage to the roots of teeth. I'm not an oral or maxillo-facial surgeon but if there was bone loss which caused the dental problem, hydroxyapatite or bone grafts would probably be necessary.
