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

8 weeks: If the teeth have already been pulled and you are without teeth, it is best to wait 8 weeks before fabricating a new denture. This allows time for both the tissue and the underlying bone to heal. If the teeth have not been pulled, as others have said an immediate denture can be made for insertion at time of extraction. ...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

Second opinion?: Not all cases of gum recession can be treated successfully and often the results are unpredictable, especially in patients with less than ideal oral hygiene. I can't tell you why your periodontist will or won't perform certain procedures. That is something you would need to discuss with him\her in more detail or consult with another periodontist if you so desire. ...Read more

In : In essence, by posting your question online, on this site, you already are asking for a second opinion. You are uncomfortable with your dentist's diagnosis. This knowledge is enough for me to tell you to seek a second opinion. This would usually be called a consultation and would be complimentary in most dental practices. I think you would feel more comfortable with what you decide to do and the treatment suggested by your dentist. You have to really take into consideration three facts: your hygiene was not as good as it should have been, you can have no pain and still have cavities and you have not seen a hygienist or a dentist for 6 years. Taking all of this into consideration. You diagnosis could be spot on! ...Read more
