after my hip surgery I NOTICED MY RIGHT LOWER JAW WAS SORE I WENT TO MY DENTIST THINKING IT WAS AN ABSESS HE SAID IT WAS EXPOSED BONE PROBABLY DUE TO THE DEVICE THAT WAS USED DURING SURGERY. I SAW HIM AGAIN TODAY AND HE SAID IT WAS GETTING BIGGER AND GAVE ME A MOUTH WASH NUMBING AGENT, HOWEVER THE PAIN IS STILL THERE . CAN THE GUM BE STICHED TOGETHER ?
i hope you mentioned hip by mistake for lip. can you mention from when? size and exact location of the bone exposed. so that i can get a clear picture of you problem to give you a sugesstion. take care.
