I had a molar extraction. Dentist had to dig out the roots. Had bone graft afterwards. How long will the teeth on either side be sensitive?

Speak with DDS: Speak to the dentist and or oral surgeon about your concerns. Make sure that the adjacent teeth are sound and do not need any restorations or have any periodontal disease.
