Dental grafts

Has anyone ever had dental grafts done. I had surgery on Thursday on a couple of places. One still hurts a good bit and one seems so lumpy (for lack of a better word) on my gum. Do you think it could be still swollen and will eventually look ok? How long before everything healed. It's Sunday so I can't call the doctor... Just wondered if anyone else has had this done and their experience. Thanks!

Did you have a bone graft in anticipation of an eventual implant? When I had my bone graft, I swear that hurt MUCH more than the extraction. It does go away, mine took about a week or so to feel more normal. Best of luck!!

No it wasn't a bone graft...it was for periodontal treatment. They grafted skin from the roof of my mouth for two small places on my gums. (Sorry...this is really kinda gross isn't it ). If it doesn't look any better than it does now I am going to regret doing it. And it hurts! I am wondering if one place actually worked.

If it was only done on Thursday it has barely started to heal. Make sure you are following your physician's instructions. What did the doctor say to do if you had problems? Surely there is an emergency number to call.

My mil had this done twice. She looks fine, and healed well. I know it was pretty painful the days after the procedure.

Thanks everyone. I have been following all my orders.... I am a big rule follower so I have read the instructions about 10 times. I will see how it feels tomorrow and call the doc if it's not better.

Thanks again!

I had a gum graft and it was a painless recovery. The doctor cut a flap from the roof of my mouth, cut the tissue from under the flap, and stitched the flap back over the donor site. That is a relatively new technique and is designed to significantly reduce pain and recovery. Took about a month for everything to look perfect. I was delighted with the results.
