Broken molar or jawbone showing

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: RobinDecker  (7 years ago)
was put on antibiotic for 10 days. Bottom right molar pulled 10 days later. had dry socket & and was packed with medicated sponge-TWICE. Had to go back & was told my jawbone was showing so dentist filed or ground it down. It is VERY painful. I think it is a piece he didn't get removed. In much pain. I just don't know what to do now. Have had all but 4 bottom teeth removed due to Dilantin (seizure med)and have never had this kind of problem. Thank you very much,Robin Decker

Dilantin does not make people lose teeth, it only makes gums grow, which is easy to treat. Why are you consenting to losing important teeth.

Just because you did not have a dry socket before does not mean you cannot get one. In fact, it happens more frequently when we get older.

Continue to have the socket packed until pain disappears. It is not unusual to have to snip pieces of bone as they emerge.

Many people experience popping after wisdom tooth removal. Most likely you received stitches during this procedure which means you can use a straw. If you feel things are a little off get a second opinion. There are only 2 ways to deal with a broken piece of bone: 1) let it work its way out or 2) go back in and surgically remove it (not a great one).
