Denture Partials Pain Ask The Dentist  Christopher MacFarland Question:
Bone Chips and Partial Pain: I have a bone chip from an earlier extraction.

It is causing pain when I wear my new partials. My dentist wants to leave it in and ajust my partials to compensate?

Are there problems with that in the future? What's best? Does it require dental surgery? ... Visitor from PA

Good question.

You are certainly not the first to have bone chips after an extraction. Usually they are small and will work their way out on their own.

However, there are times when the dentist will need to remove then if they are too large. It doesn't present much of a problem to adjust the partial around the area where the chips are.

Usually a denture or partial will need to be relined after healing is complete and that will correct the areas that were adjusted. Just hang in there for a couple of weeks, the pain should go away as the healing progresses.
