Okay, I wrote two weeks ago.... and told my story. Now I am praying that some of you who have had this done can tell me the condition of your graft two weeks to two months post-op.
I had my four upper teeth done two weeks ago. As I mentioned in my last story, the swelling, the pain and the whole experience left me with a feeling of overall depression. It was NOT easy.
I went in for my first week check up and the doctor said that it looks pretty good, that one tooth is 98% the rest looked fine.
He set up an appointment to see me in two weeks. Now I have been looking at the graft site and it looks red and healthy but it also looks so thick and bulbous but also shrinking upwards. The last tooth now shows the full recession it did when we got started.
Does this graft reabsorb itself, does it lay flatter, does it join with the original flesh of my gum? It looks funny, it feels funny and I am so worried that I will have to do it again. He told me he guarantees his work.....???? but does that mean he will have to do the whole darn thing again. Yikes!!!!
Please, if you can be so kind, tell me your experience with the healing. I am getting sick over all of this worry.
Thanks so much.
