I have several questions about my current dental procedure. I need help and advice. I really appreciate any oppions and suggestions.
Eight weeks ago, I had bone grafting (Bovine) on my low molars of both sides. I am going to finish the last step - put crown on next week. But currently I still feel too much pressure under the surgical teeth, root exposure symptoms, gum swollen, fullness and pain under my chin (both sides). My lymph nodes under the chin are enlarged. Are these normal reactions to bone grafting? Do I have infections? Like my current situation, should the dentist put crowns on? Do I need antibiotics or other treatments? My periodentist told me everything is normal.
During this dental surgery, every time after some procedures (e.g., bone grafting, cleaning and getting my teeth impressions), my whole mouth became irritation, my all gums further shrink, mucus were swollen, several ulcers occurred. Are all these normal or caused by Bovine grafting, or something is really not going right?
The maturity time for Bovine grafting is longer than allografting, generally, how long will be for Bovine grafting?
