Osteograf Low Density HA graft: Long delay for implant placement?

Last Updated December 24, 2012

I am a general dentist with little implant experience. Recently I did a full mouth extraction and inserted immediate complete dentures for the maxilla and mandible. We planned on switching to implant retained overdentures after 3-4 months. The periodontist had requested that I place cadaver allograft bone following extraction for more rapid osteoinduction.  However, Osteograf LD [hydroxyapatite allograft] was placed instead due to a mix up. I was told that it may take a year before the patient can get implants now, which the patient is not happy with. I would like to hear about your experiences with Osteograf LD and implants? Is it true that my error in selection of graft material result in such a long delay in bone osteoinduction and regrowth?
