Exposed jawbone after extraction

Oct 28, 2017

Hi all I'm new here but 5 days ago I had a pre molar removed after a failed root canal a year ago but the problem is that I had to go back on Thursday to remove pieces of bone from the gum but now my gum covering the tooth next to the extraction site folds back and is very loose showing the exposed jawbone and on either side of the hole there are pieces of bone still there.

Is this normal or shall I go back in to see my dentist I've attached some pictures any advice from dentists on here would be great
