Reply To: How Long to Wait After Extraction/Bone Graft


Hi Terre,

If you have had bone grafts then it is important to allow them to fully heal. This gives the grafts time to integrate with your natural bone so they will be strong enough to support your implants. I’d advise against hurrying the process as placing the implants too soon will increase the risk of failure, even though I can understand wanting to get the work completed as soon as you can. Instead, ask your dentist if anything can be done to help your denture feel more comfortable or to make it fit a bit better.

Best regards,
