I had all my upper teeth pulled and almost a year later I still have bones protruding threw my gums because the dentist did not extract them properly. I did receive a second opinion. Now I have to go to a oral surgeon and have all the bones in my upper gum area smoothed down and causing me more pain and more time with no teeth in my mouth!!
