After cleft palate surgery the patient is able to feed properly, there is no passage of food or milk into the nose through the mouth. Ear infections are also reduced. This surgery helps in improving the quality of life of the baby. But for normal functions like speech and hearing, other surgeries or treatment might be required with the growth of the baby.
It takes 3 to 4 weeks for surgical wounds to heal post cleft palate surgery. Usually, after the 1st week, the baby is back to normal behaviour. To protect the surgical wound from touching or rubbing, the baby is made to wear padded arm splints to restrict hand movements. After 3-4 weeks follow up appointments are scheduled to track the progress of healing.
The oral and maxillofacial surgeon is the dentist who specialises in the surgical treatment of disorders related to the mouth and facial region. The oral surgeon performs surgeries to treat, repair and reconstruct the hard and soft tissues of the oral and facial region. He/She also helps in reconstructing these regions for cosmetic purposes.
Healing of the bone graft depends upon the size of the graft and the location of the bone graft. In the case of oral bone grafts, it takes 2 weeks to 2 months to heal completely. Bone grafts will completely fuse with the recipient’s bone in 2 months. Healing might get delayed due to pre-existing medical conditions like diabetes, the habit of smoking or infection of the surgical wound. The surgeon will give you strict instructions to be followed post-surgery for quick and normal healing of the bone graft.
A bone graft for a tooth implant is the procedure of transplanting the bone graft to increase the strength of the jawbone before the placement of the dental implant. Bone graft fuses with the jaw bone and increases the chances of stability of the dental implant. Mostly, autografts and synthetic bone grafts are used for bone grafting before dental implants.
