Bone or tooth remnant under gums : Dentistry

      No Comments on Bone or tooth remnant under gums : Dentistry


I am just under a month post OP from having all teeth surgically extracted. Had a follow up with my oral surgeon at 2 weeks and have another appointment on November 6.

I have been rinsing with salt water 3x daily and have slowly been adding items to my diet that are easily consumed as per the doctor.

Two days ago, a bone or tooth fragment came loose while I was rinsing. Tonight I noticed a hard and somewhat sharp lump under the gums just at the corner of my mouth. It’s not painful .

Should I contact my oral surgeon on Monday or can it wait until my appointment? I don’t have a lot of experience with good dental health or extractions, so pardon my ignorance/dumb.
