Hi everyone,

I've already encountered one bone spicule on my left side about three weeks after my wisdom tooth extraction. Now, for the past few days, I've had a sharp pain on the right side. When I looked closely this morning, it looks like there's another piece of bone working its way out. I'm a little over eight weeks since my surgery -- is it possible to still have these fragments be working their way out?

Not very common but it can happen. I had multiple extractions last year, not just wisdoms, and I had a chip show up 6 months after the bottom work was done
