Few questions before I can help answer this question. After the graft from your leg, did you get radiation therapy in your jaw? If you have had full dosage in the area, then it's very difficult. Your dentist /surgeon will talk to your radiation oncologist to determine the dosage. I have done several cases post radiation, but generally they did not have full dosage in the area.
