My husband had a tooth pulled a week ago and the pain is still severe. Today he came home and asked me to take a look at the site, because it felt like something was scratching his tongue. sure enough, it looks like a piece of the jawbone is sticking up out of the place where his tooth was pulled. The dentist had told us that his jawbone is deteriorating, but I never heard of the bone sticking out like that. We are cash patients, no insurance, and the bill for that extraction, we were told would be $75.00, but then the dentist said it was a surgical extraction instead of a simple, so it cost us $180.00. don't have the money for another visit, any ideas?Ever heard of bone coming up through the gums where it should be healing?
