Not Really: When a tooth is removed, the remaining socket (where the roots were) will fill with a blood clot, just like any other wound anywhere else in the body. Over time, this blood clot will change to new bone, which will fill in the hole. It may not fill in completely, but you won't end up with a hole there after normal healing. In many cases, it's helpful to add some bone right after the tooth removal. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

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

Yes and Unlikely: While 7 months is a bit of a longer than usual time frame for a bony sequestrum to appear, it is certainly not unheard of. Local discomfort akin to splinter is what I'd expect for pain. Pain in surrounding teeth is likely due to something else. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
