Post wisdom tooth extraction after effects

Hi, I just got all four of my wisdom teeth removed last Friday and it seemed to go all right. No horrible after effects or anything. However, today I was feeling my gums with my tongue and I think that I can feel my bone exposed on the side of my gums. I am really freaking out! I'm going in for a follow up next week, but I don't know what I should do in the meantime. It doesn't hurt horribly, just a dull ache. Has this happened to anyone?

I am a dental hygienist and I think that what is most likely happening is that a sliver of bone is working its way out of your gums. It is very common after a tooth extraction. Your oral surgeon will probably take it out at you next visit if it bothers you. It should not hurt very much if at all. Take care.
