Hi Sarah,

Complications can and do occur, but that doesnt mean it is the fault of your dentist or you. He will probably "re-graft" the area and place the implant in a few months.

Be patient and it will more than likely work out.

I am 29 years old and I had a bone graft done in early April on my #7 tooth that I have never had (I have had a marilyn bride in that place for 17 years. My Dentist used mineross as the grafting material. When he opened my gums for the implant a few days ago he was shocked to see that the graft did not work. He said instead of bone it looked like gristle. He said he hasn't seen anything like this in 24 years of doing grafts and implants. Have you ever encountered a situation like this? I don't know where we go from here.
Thanks,
Sarah, Tulsa OK

Hi Azhar,

Gum grafts are usually done on a "per tooth" basis. The average cost is about $1100 per tooth as of 2011.
