What can I expect after a wisdom tooth extraction for a tooth that’s a bony impaction? My oral surgeon says that means the tooth is surrounded by bone, so he’ll need to cut into my jaw bone. That sounds really painful. Will I have a long recovery? How wil
If: If you are young it will be simple. Your surgeon only needs to remove enough bone to get the tooth out. That's what I call a window. The bone will heal back uneventfully. You will not be in the pain you are imagining. But the first week after surgery you will be sore and eating will take more effort. After the second week you can get back to eating that beef jerky. So don't fret it will go well. ...Read more

May be beneficial: Bone grafts can be beneficial if an implant is to placed. The grafts act as a scaffold, resorb and ultimately are replaced by your own bone or form a bridge with your bone.

Where can I get more information about tooth extraction on an abscessed tooth that requires bone graphing?

Also talk to your surgeon as the web can give you too much information and every case is different. ...Read more
