Re: Bone Fragment Poking Out after Extraction-Sequestrum?
i'm dealing with about the same thing, about 2 months after my tooth was pulled, now i have a small piece of bone popping out. i can't see my dentist due to schedules till febuaray. several of my friends at work said they did the same thing and that you can just let it go, it will fall out on its own.
i was told, brush your gums...no idea why, but several people said when they brushed the gums with the bone popping out, the fragment fell out.
mine is small, doesn't cause any problems. i don't know if i'll see the dentist or not. i guess it just depends how long the bone stays and if it starts to hurt.
