    Over a month ago I had my last impacted wisdome removed and I now have a piece of bone fragment sticking out tounge side. I saw the dentist surgeon today and he says he doesnt see an issue even thought I am now on antibiotics for the 3rd time for infection. What should I do?

    What infection? That is a bit of lingual plate sticking through and will not resolve with antibiotics - who's giving you the antibiotics?
    It's not a big issue unless it annoys you. Eventually that bone will break off or skin will cover it.

    There is an infection that in in the gum under the molar and on the cheek side. It is swollen a bit and there is pressure and pain when I bite down. This is the 3rd time since the wisdome was removed. And the xray shows the molar is fine.
