Hi, I am in my mid 40's and have had multiple implants placed years ago in the upper and lower jaws. The ones on the bottom have serious bone and gum recession around them. I was wondering if anyone has had this issue and had it treated successfully? A Periodontist wanted to do gum grafting, but what didn't make sense to me was how would that treat the serious bone loss around the implants? Another Periodontist wanted to use the Lanap laser procedure on me. Are bone grafting and gum grafting ever done together? That would seem to make sense. Or to have them done separately. I would appreciate hearing from anyone that has had to deal with this issue. The x-ray shown here is just one example of what my other implants look like.
