The dentist I have been going to has no sympathetic manner. He removed my first spur and said it was because I smoke. Well I stopped smoking to let everything heal and I still have numerous spurs. Its horrible pain. Wish I had never done this. I'd rather have missing teeth. At least I could eat.

I just had to have the dentist dig one out last week and it’s been 19 months since my extractions. It wasn’t bothering me but apparently the area of my gum around it was all irritated. I guess it was in the process of working it’s way out of my gum. So I guess that can go on a while.

I read that bone spurs can happen if the dentist that pulled your teeth wasnt strong enough, and that the spurs are actually part of your broken teeth?? I dont know for sure but I had extractiona in sept, and a bone spur every month up to and including january, finally by march no more came thru and the dentist made me a denture I could wear.
