6 weeks post wisdom tooth extraction. Shards of bone coming from gold?

Posted , 3 users are following.

I had my wisdom tooth extracted 6 weeks ago, lower jaw. It was a really difficult tooth to extract, had to drill my jaw bone to extract it and took a very long time. I had trouble with it from the word go, a horrible infection which was treated with antibiotics and 3 weeks later still horrible pain, my oral surgeon wanted to open up the gum again and clean it out to sort it out but following a check up the following week decided he was happy not too and so was I as I was feeling loads better and starting to eat better. After 4and a half weeks it started hurting again fandor a couple of days no where near as bad as before just uncomforatable, i had a shard of bone come out of the extraction site but thought must be part of the process after having my jaw bone drilled. Yesturday at 6 weeks post extraction I bit into a baguette and my jaw clicked and caused quite a pain but after that was ok today i felt it "niggling" not bad at atall and a shard of bone has come out again. Is this normal or would it be best to ring the oral surgeon back?

    It doesn't sound right. Just for your peace of mind too.
