WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER MY DENTAL BONE GRAFTING PROCEDURE?
The success of a dental bone graft depends on a combination of factors. The initial recovery time for dental bone graft is quick, and stitches can be removed in 2-3 weeks following your dental bone graft. However, the overall results from a dental bone grafting procedure may take anywhere between 3-9 months depending on the severity of your case. During this time, the dental bone graft completely heals and fuses with your existing bone.
Immediately following a dental bone graft, minor swelling and soreness of the face, jaw, and neck may be expected. An ice pack may be used to ease any discomfort. Pain medication may be prescribed to ease any uncomfortable symptoms following a dental bone graft. Following a dental bone graft, a modified diet will need to be followed to ensure the proper healing of your surgical site. Chewing may be difficult for a few days due to the swelling, so a diet of softer foods is generally recommended. For patients with dentures, the dentures must not be worn for a few weeks until the surgical area heals.
