Dentist 's  Response
Hello and thank you for your question.
Yes it sounds like you should go to your doctor. I would request another radiograph to see if they bone is still in there or changed positions. I have read about cases where patients have had foreign objects stuck in their throats for years without discovery.

Best wishes.
