Two and a half weeks ago I got my wisdom teeth out. A few days after the surgery I noticed an area of exposed bone underneath the two molars that are in front of my bottom left extraction site. It’s been 2 weeks since I first noticed this area and it has grown in size. I have been seeing my dentist every other day since the operation, but he seems to think nothing is wrong. This is not a dry socket as this area of exposed bone is more forward in my mouth than where the extraction site is, although I’m being treated for a dry socket in this area as well. I have been on 2 different courses of antibiotics - a Z Pack and Amoxicillin and they have not done anything. My dentist has confirmed that this area is exposed bone, but is writing me off as melodramatic. He is not taking any action or telling me what I should do. I am in increasing pain every day, and today has been the worst pain I’ve experienced yet. Should I be concerned or see a new dentist? What should I do?
