I recommend you go to your dentist for a complete exam to check your bone levels. ...Read more

This is a common occurence with extraction of mulitiple teeth. Most likely these are residual pieces of bone that are were loosened when the teeth were removed. In most situations these may be annoying and sore for a few days until they migrate to the top of the gum and exfoliate. In a few situations the soreness lasts a week or more at which point it is necessry for your dentist to "encourage" the pieces to come out. Generaly a few drops of anesthesia is needed. You may also be feeling the bone in between the teeth. In some situations the gum tissue is not sutured to cover the hole where the tooth was. Where multiple teeth were the bone between the teeth will now be higher and may feel like a tooth. In either event it is important for you to be comfortable and to make sure your dentist is fully aware of your concerns.
