Q.

Tooth Extraction

Hi. 3 weeks ago I had a tooth extracted (lower right molar). it' s was quite painful for about 2 weeks and now it' s just uncomfortable. But it feels like there' s a bit of tooth on the inside of my gum and just now I stuck my finger in my mouth and felt around and could feel what is like a sharp piece of tooth. Within one minute I felt a piece fall off. What shall I do?

it is most likely a piece if the surrounding bone. as the gum heals you will not feel the sharpness any more
