Please let me know if anyone ever had a situation like this, while having an extraction, and having implants, one of the edge of the tool broke and is lodge between the post and my gum.  I saw it in the x-ray

Do not take the situation lightly. Its good that the piece is not seen in the x-ray. But I would suggest that do the x-ray again from some other place to just reconfirm it. My friend also came across the same situation and had to face much problem as he had infection due to that. We made a research on it and found some good information here.

Thanks for your imput, they took several x-ray since and can't find it. I am healing very well no infection thank God. How is your friend and did they ever find the piece? thanks

Yes a part of piece was seen in one of the x-ray. It went almost inside his gum. The piece was taken out doing an surgery.

Goodness!  Has this issue been resolved yet?  I saw that you got some doctor answers and that one of them suggested you get a second opinion.  Have you decided whether or not to do so?  I hope this issue gets resolved safely!

I went back a week later, last Thursday and they did a few x-rays but could not fine the piece. He said he will have me do a ct scan to see if it is still there. I am hoping it came out the night after I had the implants. I was suppose to remove the cotton and did not know so I kept replacing it which cause me to bleed a lot, so maybe I am thinking a blessing in disguise. I had my Thigh lift done two days ago, so as soon as I am well enough i will be going in again to see what is going on. thanks

You've got a lot going on!  Speedy recovery on your thigh lift!  I had a full mommy makeover nearly a year ago and these surgeries, they sure do a number on you!  :)  Here's hoping the bleeding was a blessing!
