Are jaw bone (upper) grafts ever done BEFORE the patient has lost any teeth or has no evidence of loose teeth or overt gum problems?
My dentist gave me a referral to a periodontist for bone grafting but I have a full set of good teeth, never have lost ANY teeth nor do I have any loose teeth. I have always taken care of my teeth.
I don't get this. I have had this dentist for 12 years and he has never mentioned this to me before.
I was told they will pull out my GOOD teeth to do this.
