Can a dental bone graft get rejected or infected, if put on top an extraction, pain after 11 days, on clindamycin day 5 but not going away.

Yes

Head-teeth
Consult with your oral surgeon. There is no guarantee a bone graft will take even if no infection is present. I would be concerned as to why you have pain 11 days later and feel the mouth should get an exam.

Dental bone grafts are needed when?

Preservation

Bones
Hi. I'd also weigh in to say that I'd suggest that you should consider a bone graft in the "socket" after any extraction. This preserves the bone level at the site to allow for an implant in the future or even to increase your dentist's ability to have a better cosmetic outcome with what ever you choose to restore the area.
