I think it might be sequestria it was difficult extraction those two wisdom teeth I Dont have a photo
Expert:  Edward Magida replied 5 months ago.

You said it was a difficult extraction. The swelling was probably part of the healing process. The fact that it is down most probably means it won't comeback as the initial healing is over with. You might have gum disease elsewhere, but now that the tooth here is gone you won't have the disease in that area.
