Bone Grafts Ask The Dentist Corinne Scalzitti Question:
I had a tooth extracted two days ago and the membrane that was put in over the graft slowly oozed out of the hole where my tooth was.

It just came completely out so now there is just a hole and some stitches. Do I need to be concerned or call my dentist?

When I called yesterday to ask they said that the soft tissue would absorb into my gums to stimulate bone growth. ...Visitor from TX

Answer:
If the membrane is gone, there is probably not much more to do right now. The tissues will heal from the inside out.

Probably a good idea to have your dentist take a look next week to see if he wants to place the graft again.

Corinne Scalzitti, DMD, MAGD
