Hi I had bone graft 3 weeks ago on teeth number 8 and 9 on the front for lack of bone it’s healing up nicely.I’m going back to the dentist in two weeks to get a cavity filled on a tooth number 7 and it looks like I have a cavity too on tooth #8.My question is can it be done to even though the tooth had a bone graft will it mess it up if the tooth is filled to early and would the bone graft mess up.?

Good day

The fillings on the teeth should not have any affect on the bone graft. In fact, any infection resulting from non-treatment of cavities, could have a more negative effect.

Awesome thank you so much I was worried about it since it’s only been 3 weeks I thought I had to wait a little till the bone heals around the tooth.

Dr. M has a good point. I'm worried about the vibration of the handpiece during cavity prep affecting the integration of the graft. Ask the surgeon who placed the bone graft of his/her opinion on this.

Would you know how long does the bone graft harden around the tooth.?[/QUOTE]

I don't know the exact answer and the timing depends on the individual and the severity of the case. Your surgeon would be the best source.
