bone spurs

I'm 51 yrs old, and just had the remaining 18 teeth pulled.
about a couple of weeks after that, i had some little Bone Spurs like coming thru my lower front gum.
is this normal, and will it go away?

thanks

At times the spicules will work themselves out.If they remain they need to be removed to make it comfortable to wear a denture which I am assuming you will have made.
