If a fragment of tooth is left after tooth extraction, then it can be pulled out. If tooth was not infected and the fragment of tooth which is left inside is less than 5mm, then it will resorb on its own but if the tooth fragment was large or tooth was infected, then it can be pulled out. Tooth fragment if not removed can lead to pain and complication later on. If tooth fragment is left, then your dentist will numb the area and will pull out the tooth fragment. It can also be a bony flake which came out after tooth extraction. Bony flakes are sequestra from tooth extraction socket and feels as roughness on tongue in socket area. Bony flake can cause soreness and can interfere with healing. If it is a bony flake, then it needs to be removed or smoothened. Without clinical examination, it is difficult to give definite diagnosis. You can visit your dentist for evaluation. By the time, you visit your dentist, take the meds as prescribed to you and follow the instructions of your dentist.
