Question:
Jaw Pain: My dentist did not cut my gum to pull tooth #24 out. I experienced awful pain as he was pulling it. A tooth fragment was left but no follow up was provided.

it supposedly healed by itself. Now 5 years later I have jaw pain, it is hard to chew. ...Visitor from PA

Answer:
Tooth and root fragments MUST be removed otherwise future pain and infection issues will occur.

Infection that beoomes deep seated in the jawbone can become very difficult to treat and resolve.

The best resource for locating the offending material successfully is a Periodontist or Oral Surgeon who has access to dental scan technologies.
