1 mth ago i had 2 teeth pulled. Is it normal for me to still be pulling pieces of tooth out my gums? It was even bleeding bad last night?
It's possible: Sometimes, during difficult extractions, a small piece of tooth can break off, as well as small edges of bone. I don not know how difficult your extractions were, but at this stage it would be prudent to give your dentist a call for an appointment to see if everything is healing correctly. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
The dentist left particles of my wisdom tooth in my gums vs pulling it all out, what can I do since it was free 2 the community? The free dentist group left part of my wisdom tooth in my gums when i took advantage of the free service. What are my rights f
It : It is not uncommom for a small root tip to break off during an extraction. It is not necessarily negligence. It may have been determined at that time that it was more risky to try to remove the broken piece than to leave it and see how you heal. Are you in pain, or are you swollen, or is there any numbness? If not, then it might be better to leave it. It is not a foreign object. Over time, it may slowly work it's way to the surface where it can easily be removed without any risk. Only examination of your current condition will give you the treatment options that you can consider. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What would happen (other than pain) if i pull out the large nerve that came from underneath a partial upper wisdom tooth? (it is sitting on my gums)
Please see a dentist: Firstly, there is no "large nerve" for you to pull out... the nerves are embedded in you bone and gum tissue, which you cannot visualize or dissect. Secondly, you are attempting to perform dentistry, something that takes everyone else years of education and experience to master. Your best any only option is to be seen by a local dentist.. make the call. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I had a tooth pull (back top molar) I feel a bump on my gum right above where the tooth was pulled, and it feels like there is something sharp there?
Spicule: Probably a little spicule of bone working itself out. No matter how hard I tried, however, I couldn't see, fool, examine the area through the computer screen. To make sure there's nothing to be concerned about you should call the Dentist or Oral Surgeon who did the extraction and ask them to take a look. Probably nothing to worry about, but have it examined. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
