Recovery from gum grafting:
- you might develop some swelling and Bruising the first 4-5 days, the peak of inflammation is at 72 hours post surgery and after that it should get better.....
- you might have discomfort on the the surgical site around the teeth that are being grafted and palatal donor site (if your own tissue is being used) which might last the first 5-7 days
- Patients usually return to work as early as day after surgery unless they have a very physical job which requires picking up heavy lifting...
- Cardio and heavy lifting activities should be postponed for 2 weeks to prevent swelling and bleeding complications
You should get all graft done in one appointment because of donar site .The grafts are usually painful procedures and the pain for one or all teeth would not be that much of different all this depends on what type of graft would be used.
