Hi turkee23!

It is possible that there is a small piece of the tooth which has not been
removed.. depends on where this is.. at the very bottom of the hole or on the side...?
It is also possible, that this is the jaw bone, or a piece of the jaw bone which has been hurted during extraction. It really needs to be checked, it is good that you are going to the dentist tomorrow i think. Me i also will, just like my aunt did it. I will go to Hungary to the empireclinic, she - my aunt - was very satsfied with the treatment and especially with the prices and the quality she got there.. I'll see it soon as well, if you want to, just check their site! Me i'll also get some implants as some teeth have been extracted..
