Okay February 18th of this year had molar extracted on the top. I felt something sharp on my gum where tooth was taken out. Told dentist. He exrayed it and said the tooth was totally removed. He felt of my gum and said there was a sharp piece of bone in it, and it would wear away in time.
It is still there and very sore. Feels like it is irritating my sinuses. So where could this sharp piece of bone come from?
Its usually from the extraction site, as the roots are removed a fragment or shard of the surrounding area of the jaw bone is broken - kind of like when you pull a weed from the ground some dirt from the surrounding area loosens especially if the roots were deep. Usually they surface on their own over time like a splinter and then can be extracted using tweezers but if its really bothering you your dentist should be able to extract it using a local noacaine.
