I had #30 & 31 extracted with allografts six weeks ago, was not placed on antibiotics (had just completed a course two days prior to surgery for infection in #30) or prescribed Peridex.
I saw the oral surgeon on day 8 due to pain and was told I might have residual infection and/or that it might be due to the stitches coming out too soon. Have been on ibuprofen due to swelling of graft and jaw pain every day.
After 3 weeks, bone particles began to emerge from sockets. Saw the oral surgeon again at 4 weeks - was told that I am healing slowly and that it is OK for bone particles to be coming out. When a piece comes out, it is a huge release of pressure on my jaw. Is it normal to be losing bone particles 6 weeks post graft? Is the pain/swelling in jaw normal at this point. Should I get a 2nd opinion?
