Can a bone shard come through gum 7 months after wisdom tooth extraction? Can it cause pain in surrounding teeth?
Yes and Unlikely: While 7 months is a bit of a longer than usual time frame for a bony sequestrum to appear, it is certainly not unheard of. Local discomfort akin to splinter is what I'd expect for pain. Pain in surrounding teeth is likely due to something else. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Not really: Because your mouth is a wet place, scabs do not form like on your skin. Instead a blood clot forms in the area where the tooth was and over time tissue fills in from underneath to heal the extraction site. If you have sutures put in to close up the extraction site, you may never even see this blood clot at all. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can wisdom teeth grow back? I had a wisdom tooth removed 3 years ago. Now there is a tooth growing in that exact spot.
Once : Once removed completely a tooth does not grow back. If there was incomplete removal, such as a retained root tip, then that piece can "supraerupt" into your mouth. There could also have been an extra (supranumerary) tooth in the same area that could now be erupting into your mouth. Finally, there could be some type of lesion growing in the area. You need to see your dentist for an exam and radiograph of the area. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
No: There is no proven correlation between wisdom tooth eruption and crowding of the other teeth. This used to be a common misconception, but has since been rejected by orthodontics.

Can removing the tooth next to a partially erupted wisdom tooth allow for the wisdom tooth to grow in normally on its own? Or will it need cut out?
Why: why remove a healthy a symptomatic fully functional tooth in the hopes that a smaller tipped rotated tooth will magically take its place. At best you would need many months of Orthodontic treatment to bring it into place. Ask your Dentist to evaluate and advise. Examination by a wisdom tooth expert, an oral Surgeon, may be advisable. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
