Is this bone graft healing correctly- think its infected

User Level:

Posted by: ClevelandCavs08  (3 years ago)
I had a tooth extracted and a bone graft put in a week ago. three days after I took the first picture and it was grey with a hint of yellow. The second picture is a week after and it has more yellow surrounding the extraction site. I have no major pain, it is still just a little sore around the area. Is this normal or is there something I should be doing? Thanks!

If the graft failed and washed out you would know it. It is rare for them to fail. I have only had one fail, and that was in a smoker. She was in a lot of pain.
