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 more

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 more

Yes: A simple surgical flap can expose enough of the tooth to extract it comfortably under local anesthetic. The gums are not "swallowing" the roots, they are merely growing over the submerged root tips. ...Read more

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)

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 more

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?

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 more
