Bone chip

I've had my dentures for about four weeks now. All day I have had a particularly sore spot and when I removed my denture, there was something hard protruding from my gum. I pulled it out and it was a bone chip. Has anybody else experienced anything like that? Is this normal?

Re: Bone chip

I haven't experienced it, but, it is quite common. The bone chip just works it's way up to the surface after a period of time. At least you didn't have to go back in and have it removed! right?

Hope it's all okay,

Cool Re: Bone chip

I could feel a bone chip for many month at a spot where a tooth was pulled about 2 years ago. I finally went to the dentist and he pulled it out. He said that it happens a lot.
