In brief: May not be tooth

There are other possibilities other than a piece of tooth in this area.
It may be a bony protuberance or a bone spicule. Have it evaluated to determine exactly what is causing the problem and to determine your options for treatment.

In brief: Residual?

Have you been seen by a dentist? Wisdom teeth are frequently oddly shaped and may be fractured to begin with.
I would check to see if you do not have a residual piece of the tooth.
