While healing from a dental bone graft, can you get cavities in other teeth treated, or have a full-mouth x-ray (or CBCT) taken?
Yes, you can absolutely get cavities in other teeth. If the cavities are near the bone graft, better to wait a few months for healing than possibly disturb the area. CBCT or X-rays will not hurt the healing bone graft. READ MORE
