Issue with bone graft
Jawbone seems to be poking through the gums
These particles can be quite sharp and if you need to have them removed, it's a very easy procedure.
I hope you pronounce information to be helpful,
Bone projection out of gum after extraction
or this could be because if bone sloughing off as a result of healing compromised due to some medications
Go back to your surgeon , specially if this has been there for a long time and is naking your tongue uncomfortable.
The sharp bony ledge could be filed down. So then the gum would have a chance to grow over it.....
