pain after bone graft on tooth
I had my tooth removed Tuesday afternoon.  I also had a bone graft implant.  I can't live without pain killers.  Today is Friday and I am feeling a lot of pain after the bone graft.  The throbbing is driving me nuts.  How long is this suppose to last?  I can't take it anymore!

This question should be asked to the surgeon who did the procedure.  Severe pain following bone grafts are uncommon, but they do occur and may represent an infection or problem with the healing.
