I had 5 teeth cut out about 3 weeks ago. 4 of them were wisdom teeth. all of them healed except 1. the 1 on the lower left side has a hole where the bone is exposed my dentist packed my gum. 2 days later my dentist cut my gum in cheek she had it cut open more so she could grind down my bone in order to close up my gum and cheek with stitches now I have white meat coming out with the stitch still in it. now I have the hole again with bone exposed. Help

  • Some times if the extraction is surgical and bone cutting has to be done then healing takes long. In your case it looks like that after extraction and bone cutting the bone is not filed that is why the exposed bone was there. now your dentist has filed it down , it will heal but will take some time . keep the area clean and do warm saline rinses 2 to 3 times a day.
