Does Bone Grafting Work As I Need A New Implant To Replace An Old One?

Hello Dr. Fahey, I am 55 year old male, non-smoker and in good health.
I have a 23 year old front tooth implant which has a small bone loss and is sensitive due to some gum exposure. My dentist says bone and gum grafting will help. But I read that it is either not possible or success rate is non-existant. Is there a rough success rate percentage anywhere I can look before making decision?
I don’t know the make or model of the implant but 23 years ago there were probably only a few around. Thank you for taking the time to answer my question.
Hello thank you for getting in touch. The implant shouldn’t be sensitive it is just metal. Are you sure you have your terminology right are you referring to a crown? There should be no problems with a bone graft if the dentist is highly skilled and competent. There are many different payment options available these days so find a financial plan. I hope this helps. Regards Dr Nick Fahey.
