Doctor said I needed a bone graft
Hi. I had a tooth extraction 6 days ago. The tooth had a root canal and had a crown. The root canal failed. Anyway the doctor said I needed a bone graft. It's been 6 days now and I've done everything that was told I should do and not do. I feel like there's little bits and pieces coming out. I was told there's a membrane there to hold the bone graft.
My mouth feels gross and I feel some somewhat sticky residue. I asked the dentist about that and was told that's the membrane dissolving. How long before the membrane completely dissolves?
I also have stitches. When will that dissolve. My mouth just feels really gross and when I drink/swallow I feel like the area where the graft was done would move. I keep looking inside but all I see is white stuff. Is this normal?
I'm also on antibiotics and was reacting really badly to it(Doxycycline). I was given 200mg 2x day. I can't get a hold of them on Fri and so instead of stopping the antibiotics completely, I take just a 100mg tab once a day. Is this ok?
She said I don't have an infection, she said it's residual infection, not really sure what that means.
Anyway thanks and please help.
