Good evening! That is a great question. Technically, the answer is yes. There are many case studies showing successful results (keeping a tooth for many years) after having a bone graft placed. Could you give me a little more information about which tooth it is, how long the pocketing has been present, etc....?

Sincerely,

Dr. Lara
