Surgeon issue: I had all my teeth extracted by a dental surgeon so I could get full dentures. When he pulled my teeth he left half of a rotten tooth in my
mouth. Is this safe?
Should he have cut it out? Also, when he pulled out my front top two teeth out he left a crooked tooth and a big flap of skin in the front so now my dentist who made the dentures for me made my teeth with a overbite because the surgeon made a mess in the front.
On my bottom left side on the bottom he pulled a rotten tooth and for some reason I now have a spot where my gum has a big lump where my gum connects to the inside of my bottom mouth. My dentures cut into it because it is connected. Is the surgeon doing something wrong? ...Visitor from Williamsport
Oral surgeons are expected to be experts at extractions and the surgical procedures used to complete a satisfactory treatment.
Leaving a half broken and/or rotten tooth behind is not acceptable.
It sounds as if your treatments by the oral surgeon are far from satisfactory and likely makes a comfortable denture fitting difficult if not impossible.
Contact your State Dental Board for assistance.
