I have had an implant in a molar for several years. Good packs around this tooth. Recently, I have had soreness in this area. Dentist says I have bone loss and should see periodontist for possible bone graft. However, I have Osteoperosis. What would you advise. Is there an alternative to bone graft.

It may be that the periodontist simply stabilises your condition. You will have to discuss your issue with them; the general dentist won't know for sure what will happen. go for a consultation and take xrays from time of implant and intervening periods.
