The Timeframe For The Installation Of Permanent Dentures After Oral Surgery?
Hello Fina, thank you for asking.
You need to clarify what is meant by a fracture, whether broken teeth or broken bones in the jaw. Broken bones certainly have different healing time. It depends on the location of the broken bone, how severe the fracture is, is there any complications such as infection and heavy bleeding, and depends on a person's general condition. Teeth are actually included in the bone group, so if the tooth has broken it will take several weeks or months to be able to make the teeth stable again. If the fracture occurs in the jaw, of course it really depends on the type and severity of the fracture. We cannot provide a reference regarding the healing time span because we do not know the extent of the jaw fracture. If a simple fracture occurs where only one line is broken, then generally it takes about a month to heal, it can also be more. If a complex fracture where the bone is broken into many pieces, then the healing time will automatically multiply.
Regarding the healing time of the gums, once again depends on the severity of the wound. It is possible that the gums can heal in about 2 weeks or more. But you must remember, the factors that determine whether or not the implantation procedure is performed, depends not only on the condition of the gums, but also on the condition of the jaw and bone supporting the teeth.
Consult again with the treating doctor, because your doctor knows best your husband's condition. The doctor will provide an estimate of when further action can be taken and what form the action will be. In the meantime, follow the dentist's instructions regarding dental and oral care to avoid infection. Regards.
