Thank you for the oportunity to ask this question. Two weeks ago I had bone grafts packed into my eye teeth sockets. The grafts have produced dime size bulges that disfigure my upper lip, I am assumning since it is already obvious at this stage that as my natural bone shrinks these bulges will become more and more apparent. In addition when I were my upper denture the bulges are even more apparent. What can I do to reverse this problem as I am assuming the grafts were done incorrectly.

  • It is just 2 weeks you got the graft surgery done. After getting bone grafting done there is initial swelling which can also be cause of bulge and it may take around 6 weeks to 3 months for the graft and bone to settle down. So wait till that time. If still you feel that there is something wrong then you can discuss this in your follow up visits with dentist. for more info on bone graft you can check this article... http://www.identalhub.com/article_understanding-bone-grafting-343.aspx
