About a month ago, I had a bone exposure on my gum. I went to my dentist, met him in his office on Sunday afternoon. He said he would refer me to an oral surgeon. When I arrived at Dr. Ray's office, he went through the process of the healing of the bone in my mouth, the tissue that covers the bone. I didn't understand about bone breaking off when it's exposed to air. He was very thorough in the discussion of that, and he said that that is a thing that happens to several people, and it's nothing to be alarmed about and that it should heal itself in a period of time. I've been in a lot of medical offices in my 84 years of life, and the staff here at Dr. Ray's office is the best I've ever run into. They have thoroughly respected my time, and I would recommend him to anyone looking for an oral surgeon. He's great.
