I had a tooth cut out a couple months ago is it possible that a piece of that tooth broke off and is working its way out sideways theres a red sore spot and it feels like something sharp is poking out

  • Sometimes it does happen but it can be the bone also which you are feeling. Anyway you  have to go to  dentist and find out what is the cause. If it is tooth part then that will be removed but if it is bone then rounding of bone called Alveoplasty has to be done. For more info on Alveoplasty you can read this article....  http://www.identalhub.com/dental-what-is-alveoloplasty-in-dentistry-771.aspx
