Detailed Answer:
thanks for sending the question.

I would suggest immediate evaluation by a dentist or maxillofacial surgeon. Exposed bone is always something that physicians evaluate immediately for prediction of how well healing will occur and if some type of surgical procedure is indicated.

Thanks again for sending your question. Please let us know if you have additional concerns.
