Bone Grafts Ask The Dentist Edward Brant Question:
I have had my bottom teeth pulled for about 2 years but I am still haveing bad pain in my gums.

It feels like a nail pushing up out of my gum and the pain is terrible. Any suggestions? ...Visitor from NY

Investigate the strong possibility of broken fragments of root tips... very very common. They are difficult to "see" however unless a cone beam catscan is used. 3D imagery permits a rotation of images to confirm or rule out this possibility.

Get a consult with an implant peridontist or an implant dentist who has a catscan in his/her office. Once "seen".... it is not too difficult to remove.

In the event it is a shard of jawbone that hasn't migrated up through the gum tissue, it too, should be easily located.
