Socket exposed post implant

Nov 3, 2016

I had an extraction and same day implant with bone graft on upper first molar about 10 days ago. The stitches fell out after less than a week and the head of the implant is showing and I can feel the sharp edge of the tooth socket.

There is only slight pain if I bite hard on the tooth next to it and there does not appear to be any swelling nor is there any bleeding.

Is it normal for the gum not to cover the bone completely and will it grow over or do I need to get this looked at? The problem being that I am no longer in the same country as where I had the work done, otherwise I would have simply returned already.

Any advice appreciated.
