How long will bone grafting last?

Forever is a long time and saying that something will last forever is not realistic, especially when talking about humans and biology because everyone and every situation is different.

Bone grafting is a highly successful procedure for most people. Certain medical conditions may prevent you from successful bone grafting, but we can cover all of those questions long before your planned procedure.

The rates of bone grafting failure are low and there’s no reason to believe that your bone grafts and implants can’t last a lifetime. While there are no guarantees, Drs. Smith and Domingue can share potential outcomes, obstacles, and projected lifespan of your treatment. We will only recommend bone grafts if we believe they will be successful. 

Since dental implant and bone grafting technology and procedures improve over time, we make sure we stay on top of the latest developments and materials so that you get the best of what is available. When you come to our doctors for your bone grafting and dental implant procedures, you are making an excellent choice for your dental health.

Drs. Smith and Domingue are experts in their fields and even teach other dentists about successful bone grafting and implant procedures. If you have questions about whether bone grafting might be right for you, please call our Lafayette, LA dental office and we will be happy to answer your questions.
