Bone Flap Infection
Not common: If the fracture is truly closed, bacteria should not be able to infect the bone since it isn't exposed to the outside environment. Fractures, where bone is penetrated through the skin or visible through a wound, have variable infection rates based on the size of the wound and the time until the patient receives antibiotics. ...Read more

Do granules of a dental bone graft move around? Like under your interior jaw bone near the extraction site.
Hopefully minimal: One of the reason why the bone graft fail is the instability or movement of the graft. True grafting required graft stabilization with membrane, cages (titanium fixture to protect graft), or screw in the case of block graft. Micromovement of graft will hinder the fibroblast migration and adhesion and interupt vascular genesis. Must achieve good clotting and full closure for graft stabilization. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
It depends.: Simply being impacted may lead to pain but won't necessarily lead to infection, but if debris chronically accumulates around the gum near the tooth' it can then become infected. If this happens, or it becomes infected for other reasons, then infection can spread to the adjacent bone of the skull. It then becomes know as osteomyelitis. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

No: A bone marrow or peripheral blood (pb) stem cell transplant (sct) is not painful. There are various "induction" treatments that depend on the type of cancer or disease to "condition" or get rid of the cancer (& normal) cells. A sct then "rescues" the bone marrow by returning self (autologous sct) cells or cells from another (allogeneic sct). The sct itself is similar to a blood infusion. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
