Exposed bone lingual area # 31 post tooth extraction resulting in chronic pain?

In brief: See Oral Surgeon

The exposed bone may be the result of a sharp edge of the tooth socket that is peeking through the gingiva.
The bone needs to be smoothed down to give the gingiva a little more room.... once smoothed, the gum should close over the wound and you should be fine.

They are the expert in neuropathic pain, especially after dental treatment.
Vicodin is not a drug of choice for chronic neuropathic pain. Most of the debate about the role of opioids in chronic pain management is based upon both the safety and efficacy of these drugs and the potential for abuse. Here is the link where you can find a doctor near you: http://www.aaop.org/

Dr. T. Davatzis, thank you for your contribution. Chronic pains = 4 month or longer, especially those associated with neuropathic pain and dysfunction, are often refractory to treatment. This is in sharp contrast with most pains associated with somatic tissue injury. These pains can usually be controlled and managed by OFP or neurologist with AEDs, TCAs, SSRIs and SNRIs.
