I had two teeth pulled recently and have several bone spurs, I tried removing them myself and was successful at one but in the end only made things worse. They hurt way to much to not have them removed.

They aren't a bone spur they are called bone fragments. And yes you may very well have one if you have had teeth pulled recently they hurt like crazy.

Possibly, Bone spurs are build of calcium on the surface of bones. The best bet would be to see a dentist in the near future and have he/she to evaluate it and your symptoms
