I have to have my upper right, next to last molar extracted after 2 root canals and an apicoectomy. The crown became loose and when they took it off the tooth is cracked in two places. I went to the oral surgeon today, and he wants to do bone grafts using cadaver bone and the 12-18 month dental implant process. I want the synthetic bone and an immediate load implant. I am vegetarian and I don't want a dead persons or animals bone in my mouth! He wants to do it his way because there are 3 roots and my sinus dips down low. He says I do not need a sinus lift.
What is the success rate for the immediate load in my circumstances? Would I really have to wait 18 months, as the surgeon wants to? Does it really matter if I get synthetic bone instead of cadaver bone? Thanks for any help you can give me!
