What can I do if I have a broken bone while extraction of my wisdom teeth?

Hi. I have removed two of my top wisdom teeth about 4 days ago. I asked my dentist to give me the teeth. And at home, I saw that one of them (which its empty socket is now very painful) had some thing like bone tightly clinging on it. The size of this disjoint part of bone is about 1mm x 7mm x 6mm. it is obviously part of my bone.

I am so worried about it. Please let me know that it will heal or not! what will happen to that missing part of bone? how long does it take to completely cure? and is this event frequent?

thank you so much.

The alveolar bone attached to extracted tooth is not uncommon for upper wisdom tooth extraction. The wound generally heals uneventfully.
