Hello. I've been doing extensive research on exactly this problem. Did you find out what the issue was? I have three fully errupted wisdom teeth. The fourth one i had removed about two years ago. I was somewhat grinding it to where I made a hole in my cheek. Now the teeth on the right side are causing issues. The skin/joint behind the teeth hurt. Dentist never said anything about the teeth. It is driving me around the bend. I put tooth gel on the area and it helps but doesn't fix the problem.
The best source of bone for your graft is your own bone tissue from elsewhere in your body. Bone can be grafted from the chin, the back of the lower jaw, the hip and the tibia. Bone taken from your own body is the most viable and has faster healing times when compared to alternatives. In many cases, a combination of artificial bone substitutes and your natural bone is used. In any bone grafting procedure, the grafted bone provides an anchor and stimulus for the existing bone to grow onto, eventually providing an environment suitable for the placement of implants.
Yes, many insurance companies may not cover prolotherapy, and often patients are driving or flying to our office to seek our expert treatment, but in the long run think about how much time, aggravation, and wasting time on other procedures, medications, and therapies you will spend, hoping for a cure, when prolotherapy may be it. All it takes is a careful history, physical examination of the back, pelvic tilt, feet, hips, reflexes and strength in skilled and experienced hands to determine if someone has an excellent chance at being cured of their back pain with prolotherapy and/or platelet rich plasma.
