Hello, I have been having an aching at my extraction site at #18. Sometimes it is worse than other times. I wear a bite guard also. When the tooth was extracted after continued pain despite root canal, I noticed the area looked pretty torn up like it was a difficult removal. Unfortunately, the oral surgeon was very defensive, also implied that I was drug seeking after 3 weeks still hurting. A couple bone spiclules finally came out but this area is sore to touch still and aches after all this time. I got tired of just tolerating it and I just got another OS opinion, she wants to do exploratory surgery, irrigate copiously, but nothing shows up on pan X-ray, and she cannot promise it would help. What do you think?
