How long after an incident can I still sue for malpractice?

Question Details: I discovered major bone loss in my jaw preventing me from implants and soon the inability to adequately wear dentures 6 months ago when I going to get implants and had an X-ray done. However, my actual treatment was done 3 1/2 years ago of full extractions and dentures. And then a second dentist just told me that my previous X-rays from 8 years ago indicated bone loss making further bone loss upon extraction foreseeable and preventable. Also, another dentist says that he would have postponed the extractions until which time I could get implants. Would this be a negligence case and would it be barred by the statute of repose at this point?
