Bone Grafting Instructions

As part of the surgical procedure, bone grafting material has been placed into the extraction sites to help preserve your jawbone in preparation for possible implant replacement of the extracted tooth. The bone graft is composed of many small particles. It is not unusual for some of the granules to dislodge from the graft site.  It feels strange, but it not typically a big concern.
