Dr.***** ***** I had bone augmentation surgery done in the
I had bone augmentation surgery done in the upper back jaw some 8 weeks ago. It was to provide bone sufficient to take one or two implants in around 8 months' time. Graft material, I'm not sure what, in the form of white granules was packed into the cavity drilled into the existing bone, (socket graft?) and a dissolvable (resorbable) membrane placed over the top. However, I have been in pain ever since! It seems some of the small white particles have found their way past the membrane, and my dentist had said that it's these that are causing the pain. I'm not convinced that the dull toothache type pain I'm experiencing is due to this.. He has removed some of these loose particles over the last few weeks, but I still have a dull almost constant dull pain in the area. Just yesterday on a 2D x-ray he saw a small dark area next to the area in question. He thinks it may be an infection and has prescribe a course of anti-biotics. The graft area is right next to an recent implant/crown that was completed just a few days after the bone graft, and this tooth feels ‘numb'. I don't of this is usual with an implant or if it may be relevant to my problem My worry is that the bone graft is failing and causing the pain. Could this be the case and if it is failing what can be done? … read more

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
