Can dental bone grafts fail?

In most cases, dental bone grafts are one of most predictable and successful procedures in implant dentistry. It is possible to see incomplete bone integration as a result of the bone graft  procedure. If you’re a candidate, additional grafting may be indicated to provide the optimal foundation for your new implant. The dental bone grafts will typically fail due to infection, smoking, and/or health conditions such as: uncontrolled diabetes and immune compromised ailments.
