Are my Gums Healing Well? Preparing for Implant and Crown (Middle Tooth) (photo)
The tooth was extracted 10 days ago -had some bone loss before and during the extraction.Are my gums healing normally?Will these vertical cuts/dents heal? Will they get back to their previous shape/height ? Bone grafting was done. There is some spacing between the temp tooth and gums currently which is slightly bothersome as every time I drink or swallow the hole acts like a vaccum and it pulls on my lips. I was wondering if the bone/gums will grow in. (The white stuff are dissolvable stitches).
