Dr. Gary Kitzis answered:

When the body has to grow a bone graft, is it normally painful?

Bone graft pain

Bones
The bone graft itself does not cause pain. The discomfort comes more from the complete debridement of the area especially if it was infected before being grafted and the elevation of gum tissue to place membranes to cover the graft. Depending on the graft location and the person's susceptibility, there may also be swelling of the area.

Dr. Dinh Bui answered:

How painful is the recovery process after a bone graft?

Slight to moderate

Bones
The postoperative pain from the bone graft cause by three reasons: 1) infection, 2) uncontrolled swelling, 3) collateral damages during the grafting procedure. A grafting procedure should be carried out with least collateral damages to the area, i.e. the complete flap closure, patency of covering tissue, fixation of the graft. Medication will control swelling, infection, and pain.

How painful is the recovery for a dental bone graft (needed for implant)?

Varies

There alot of different types and complexities of bone grafts. In general, the recovery is similar to that of a dental extraction. In some cases, a more significant recovery is required.

How painful is bone graft surgery from your hip for dental implants?

Quite Painful

Head-teeth
It is quite painful and can cause disturbances in your ability to walk for a while. It's also necessary to stay in the hospital for at least a day following surgery. The good thing is that it is almost never necessary any more. If you would like a referral, I know a brilliant implant surgeon in your city who can help you or at least do a second opinion. His consultations are free for implants!

Dr. Dinh Bui answered:

Tooth extracted/bone graft a week ago, on clindy still painful, saw DDS, no dry socket, said deep roots difficult extraction, could that cause pain?

Bone graft?

Bones
Usually we don't put bone graft unless there is no infection in the area. Bone graft can delay healing for 28 days if there is any complicaton in bone graft. All pain should be subsided after 1 to 2 weeks. Are you on any bisphosphonates (osteoporosis meds)? If you are, look into ONJ (osteonecrosis of the jaw) as the possible cause and could be treated with laser (biostimulation or LLLT)

Tooth extraction+bone graft 6 days ago, in a lot of pain, saw DDS maybe infection, put on clindamycin day 2 still painful, how long till anti work?

Not normal

Head-teeth
Need to go back to your Dentist for further evaluation. My patients do not have any pain the next day after an extraction and bone graft, therefore I would surmise that you have something that needs to be addressed now.

What is healing time for a clavicle compound fracture that required surgery with a bone graft after improper healing.?

Open nonunion

Forearm_fracture
Each fracture has its own personality: worse prognosis with open, comminuted, malunion, nonunion. It depends upon the host immunity, health, and healing potential of the bone and soft tissues. May be 6 weeks to 6 months.

Implants (2)on upper left behind my canine extracted themselves. Peridonist had no problem removing them and did a bone graft. What are my options?

Various

Cause for implant failure should be identified first to avoid a repeat. Options could then range from re-implantation, fixed bridgework if possible, removable prosthesis & no further treatment. First find reason for losing implants & go from there.

Supposingm y lower left jaw is replaced with a bone graft, should I have problems chewing with the other side?

Good occlusion?

Graft
Your ability to chew is depending on how good the occlusion you have. Regardless of the graft, the chewing depends on how the upper teeth opposing the lower teeth. Check with your dentist.
