i had lost a lower left molar due to injury and I had an implant done. The gum on the cheek side of the implant kept getting infected and the dentist suggested that a bone graft be done as there was a pocket at the site causing the infection. I had the bone graft done 5 days ago but I am still feeling pain. How long after a bone graft should I still be feeling pain?. Should I have the implant removed and bone graft done over if this graft fails. i cannot deal with the repeated infections due to the pocket at the implant site
