Your bone graft may be made of bone particles. It is normal for a few of these particles can become noticeable in your mouth the first few days after the graft. There are some habits you can implement to minimize the number of particles that become dislodged.
A soft diet for 5 days is key to keeping a graft undisturbed. We recommend only liquids for the rest of the day after surgery. Your food intake may be limited for the first few days. Compensate for this by increasing your fluid intake — at least 6-7 glasses of liquid should be taken daily. Try not to miss a single meal. You will feel better, have more strength, less discomfort and heal faster if you continue to eat.
