Re: implant using cadaver bones
Just wanted to tell you that I had cadaver bone put into my mouth over twenty-five years ago in a back molar. I was creeped out, scared as hell of HIV infection and all of that. THAT tooth is still fine, although in 6 weeks or so, the one next to it is going to have to be pulled because it has died.
I am aware of the HIV and cadaver bone thing as well. Even as the screening gets more and more sophisticated, we still have to deal with the money hungry evil beings in this world. However, the chance of an HIV infection is pretty minute, and although still even a remote possibility can greatly scare us, I do believe your dentist is right on target.
This is kind of a "face the fear and do it anyway" situation. My opinion, for what it is worth, is to face that fear and do it anyway.
All good wishes for a great outcome.
