2 months ago i had a lower molar extracted after a failed root cannal treatment years before. It was done by an oral surgeon. All went well. During recovery i had to go back in to get to get some sharp pieces of bone shaved which surfaced through the gum. They where not fragments they where attached to my jaw bone. One month later i have the same problem again. It feels like a small ridge under the gum and is very painful. I am only eating soft foods and trying my best to leave it alone so it can heal on its own. I am anxious about going back to my oral surgeon and getting cut again but will if i dont get improvement soon. Has anyone out there had a similar experience? How long could this take to heal? Any comments or info would be appreciated.
