Bone Grafts Ask The Dentist Christopher McFarland Question:
I have had two bone grafting procedures.

The graft material was from a cow. Both times following the procedure I get into extreme pain. Which is not the usual follow up.

Can I be allergic to the grafting material?...Visitor from PA

Answer:
It would be hard to imagine a circumstance where your were allergic to the graft material.

Grafting products are processed extensively and is essentially inert.

I would guess the pain comes from the amount of tissue retraction that is being done to visualize the area.

If you have a sense of swelling and/or a tingling numb feeling in the surgical area, that could be causing the pain.

Hopefully, the two grafts have now provided sufficient bone volume and you can move ahead with treatment.
