Is It Normal for Bone Graft to Be Added 4 Months After Dental Implants Have Already Been Placed?
I have had two dental implants put in about 4 months ago after missing my two bicuspids for several years. Gums have shrunk severely, however on the day of the procedure the periodontist decided bone graft is not needed. It has now been almost 4 months since the surgery and he is suggesting bone graft. Is it okay to have bone graft added after implants have already been placed? Is it going to be an issue to open the gums back again and would it take an additional 6 mo. for healing to take place?
