Had my right molar removed. Recently found pieces coming out. hat's your thought on what it is?

I had my right molar removed over two months ago, the very last molar. I know that sometimes pieces are left sometimes that have to work there way out I have two exposed areas that I originally thought were just pieces coming out but they are very large so now I'm worried that it may actually be my jawbone my question is how do I tell the difference? They appear to b an off white color and to me look like pices of tooth or the cavity they were in but I don't know for there any way to know for sure. I don't have dental insurance so if its just something that could work itself out on its own i would defiantly would rather not spend the money that I really don't have..however if there is a chance it's my jawbone then obviously I need to do something. What's your thought on what it is? Please and thank you.

Dentist 's  Response
Hello there,

Thanks for asking the query,

Best method to rule out this is by taking a Dental x-ray which will clearly show the presence of left over tooth particles and its position in the jaw . If present, it can be removed surgically from the jaw bone.
I would suggest you to visit the Dentist and get the checkup done take an x-ray of the region.
You maintain a good oral hygiene, avoid food lodgement.
Use antiseptic mouthwash gargles twice daily.

Hope this helps out.
