Re: Greiving over lost tooth

Hi Harmony:
Yes, I greived the first tooth I lost. Never replaced it because it was in the back of my mouth. Now just lost a tooth (not as far back) and NEEDED. Dentist said too little bone. I went to a periodontist and he did a bone graft and now I am hoping. It is amazing what they can do even with very little bone ... I would definitely go and go soon ... the sooner the better after a tooth extraction as you continue to lose bone.

Dont know about bridges. Someone else would have to tell you about that. Don't give up. See a good periodontist or implant surgeon right away. Good Luck.
