Hi LaVerne,

It is possible though unlikely. In my Burbank dental implant practice, medical insurance rarely picks up dental implants or bone grafting.

It is worth a try though, but don't get your hopes up.

Hi Dr. Amin,
just 6 months ago I had jaw surgery to correct an extreme over grown lower jaw. Now I want the teeth i have lost many years ago to be replace because now that my jaw has completely changed I wonder if any of my procedure will be considered reconstructive instead of cosmetic.

Hi Alyssa,

Your questions are very general. I would need to see you for exact times.

Typically, the process will take a few months! Hang in there!

Hi Darnell,

Continue to see your dentist. Although it may be a long road, it should work out in the end.

I have been going through dental implants and so far they have not worked. They keep having to take it out or move them. My last problwm was the implant went up into my sinus and they could not get it out. They stitched me up and said we would have to wait till it came down. 2 weeks later they opened up the gums and dug out the implant it was horrible. Have you ever heard of this happening. Portions of my gums and roof of my mouth are still numb and some parts still hurts and it has been 2 months since they dug out the implant, is the numbness and tenderness normal? Now they are going to try a block of bone to build it up and try 2 more implants and I am scared of going through more of the same. It has been 1 1/2 years since they started. What should I do
