Recently I had 4 teeth pulled. I had my top 2 wisdom teeth pulled, and also the molar next to the top wisdom teeth pulled on each side. The day after I had my teeth pulled, I noticed a "tooth-like" thing still in my mouth. My dentist told me that I shouldn't worry that it's just a bone shifting into the place of where my tooth was. Is this correct. Also when I eat, I get small food such as rice and other chewed up food stuck in the places where my teeth were. It hurts to pull it out, but if I rinse with warm water, that doesn't seem to work either. Any sugestions on this as well as the info that my dentist told me???
