Question:
Pain after Tooth Extraction: I had a tooth pulled about a week ago. My dentist had to cut my gum in order to get the tooth out in pieces.

I am having discomfort after 8 days. Is this normal? I am also a Diabetic. ...Visitor from Columbiaville

Answer:
There could be the complication of bone fragments migrating up through the gum tissue.

Root tip fragments are also known to occur during difficult extractions. If there IS a root tip fragment, it MUST be removed, otherwise infection could become deep seated in the jawbone.

A Periodontist with a CTscan device is the best resource for locating and removing root fragments.
