Poor bone density forposterior lower implants - any options

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: Tabula  (5 years ago)
I had most of my lower back teeth removed about 6 years ago, and went to a practice specializing in in implants.
I was shown a ct scan of my lower jaw and told the amount of bone is adequate but density in the middle part of the posterior bone is poor. I could see this on the scan - the top and bottom parts wee white but the middle bit appeared grey. I was told I'd be a good candidate for all on 4 treatment,which is fine, but is there nothing that can be done to have implants in the area with poor bone density like this,as I dont really want to have all my front lower teeth out if I dont have to?

It is difficult to build height, width, and density of bone of the posterior mandible. That is why I am so adamant about not extracting molar teeth that can be saved. The damage is incalculable. However, it is possible that a really experienced surgeon may be able to do a block bone graft successfully. If successful, it would take a lot of healing before implants could be placed.

I would hesitate to extract strong front teeth to place implants in order to try to cantilever posterior teeth. Hanging everything on four implants is risky, and during the healing of implants you will have to wear a denture.
