Hi I have a wisdom tooth that has broken through the gum that has become infected. It is causing pain and there is puss when i press the gum. My dentist gave me antibiotics which i will take but my concern is the flap of gum that is overhanging the tooth. It has on the end of a flap what i can only describe as a white wart that you might get on your finger. Can anyone tell me why this has appeared and is it something i should be concerned about.
Hi there, A partially erupted wisdom tooth often has gum pouches over their tooth crowns and this excess gum tissue can get infected and cause pain. The gums swell and the opposing tooth can often bite into the swollen gums. An impacted wisdom tooth can cause headaches. Removal of wisdom tooth is the best treatment .Pain killers may help in relieving the pain. See a dentist if the symptoms are severe. Best luck and regards!
I have no pain but I have noticed at the site where the tooth was pulled on the inside of my gum between gum a slight protrusion that feels a bit like a bone is there. Is this something I should worry about? or is this still not healed yet?Thank you for your time.
Hi doctor, I had my wisdom tooth removed for my right lower jaw side 2 and the 1/2 month ago, my stich removal was 1 and the 1/2 months ago.

Hi Doctor, i would like to enquire if i had a wisdom tooth extraction about 1 and the 1/2 months ago, and sitch removal 3 weeks ago and when i see my wound in the mirror, it there is still a hole on the extracted tooth portion and it looks sore, however it is no longer bleeding.
Well I had my wisdom tooth pulled on Monday.It had to be the worst experience.After 2 1/2 hrs of grinding,pulling,pushing and cutting,the doctor gave up and had to send me to someone else.My appt was at 9:00 and I left at 12:30.The next dentist couldn't get me in until 3:00.By the time I got to that appt all the numbing shots wore off and they had to numb me all over again.That dentist took another 1 1/2 hours to get it out.
I never heard of pulling a tooth because of a tiny cavity. My dentist doesn't work like that. I lost one wisdom tooth because I injured it but the other three are fine and dandy and I intend to keep them. I don't understand this pull happy approach.
I have an appointment scheduled for September 2nd for a wisdom tooth removal consultation as well as an invisalign consultation. How fast does gum recession usually happen? Will I be in pain the entire month? How fast can teeth move out of alignment? Basically, what can happen in a month? Being a 21-year-old female, I am very concerned about my appearance. I have read that gum recession will repair itself after the underlying cause is eliminated - is this true? How long would that take?
I think my wisdom tooth is erupting stright. It has erupted for the most part but not entirely. due to this, my second molar is hurting. I also see an operculum which is also hurting. would the pain will go away soon or should have my wisdom tooth extracted? I am twenty five years old now. Please help!!
I immediately assumed it was my wisdom teeth (three of them are through the gum, one is not). The pain moved from my teeth to the side of my face, the base of my tongue, and down my throat. I started taking over-the-counter pain reliever and using numbing gel, and this helps, but the pain persisted. I finally called my dentist to ask what he thought, and he said it sounded like a piece of food was stuck under the gum where my wisdom teeth are coming through, and was causing discomfort.
I have never had a wisdom tooth come in. I'm worried what it may be because i don't see a tooth, i'm thinking the worst that there's a rotten tooth inside my gum. Please someone help.
I have a wisdom tooth that is completely under the gum. It feels like it has either broken or maybe turned sideways. It has been bleeding a tiny bit but not a lot, can this lead to an infection......serious illness?
i just had a wisdom tooth extraction and i feel pain a terrible one on my lower front tooth. the gum of that tooth is very low. i was wondering will that tooth come out and why is that pain???
however on the other side my wisdom tooth is growing in there is somewhat of a hole in my gum and i can see and feel the tooth. what could the blood ball be? does it seem like something that can get worse? i dont have dental insurance at the moment and dont know how long before its too late to do something about whatever is going on.

My 23 year old son has a wisdom tooth coming in. He is experiencing some facial swelling on that side for 24 hours, had pain, less now, said he can only open his mouth about 1 inch or so. Any ideas? We have no dental insurance and he is only employed part time.
I'm 20 weeks and this morning I woke up to a painful tooth ache. I know wisdom teeth hurt but I never thought it would hurt during pregnancy. Has anyone been through this? Is there anything I can do besides going to the dentist?
Based on information given by you the few possibilities of small swelling after wisdom tooth extraction are dry socket, bruise, wound, impacted tooth and gum disease. If it is bothering you a lot or the symptoms are severe seeking the opinion of a dentist will help. Do keep us posted. Best of luck and regards!
I hope someone can help me. I had my bottom right wisdom tooth pulled over a YEAR ago and i had bad dry socket because im a smoker and didn't wait long enough to light up. I had gone back in and had the hole packed, but a couple weeks after, I had pieces of bone poking through the gum. I ended up pulling out 3 different pieces of bone and no more seemed to show up.
Hi shar03! I am in no way a "certified" dental expert, however, when someone (myself included) spends countless hours on the internet trying to find the source of a "smell problem", you tend to learn a thing or two..... Anyway, it sounds to me that you MAY have what's called "impacted wisdom teeth." It's where your wisdom tooth/teeth are stuck between open and close in your gum.
When I looked at it, the tooth or gum (I can't tell what it is and I'm afraid to touch it) is a dark grey color. My gums around the area are extremely red and there is a dark spot which might be part of the tooth. My inner cheek has a white line around where the tooth is. I have been taking tramadol for pain and antibiotics incase there is an infection. I am wondering if anyone knows what is going on with this or has ever heard of anything like this.
I have an appointment in less then a week to have my last wisdom tooth removed, it is a partial bony impaction in my lower jaw. I'm 28 years old and it looks very decayed under the gum flap, sometimes a notice small red steaks or dots in it. There has been blood in my spit sometimes for about three weeks now, usually fresh. Although once or twice I coughed up some old blood in the morning.
My right wisdom tooth came through about 6 months ago, the left started coming through about a month ago. Recently, by lower right gum has become sore, so i went to my dentist and he booked me an appointment to remove both of my wisdom teeth. However, this is not for another week yet, and I can't close my mouth properly or chew properly anymore. What is the best pain treatment, and is there any grounds to push my appointment closer?
For about the past week and a half i have developed pain in my left lower wisdom tooth, and a whitish colored sore on the inside of my gum near the tooth. At times i have pain radiating into my left ear. The tooth is only slightly sore or painful when i eat but if i press on the sore and tooth with my tongue it is fairly painful. I cannot tell if the sore is draining anything. Could this be an abscess or root infection?
Shortly after the op I noticed that behind where i had a vertically aligned impacted tooth (ie lower jawbone) a sharpness forming to my gum and then abotu a week ago it started to protude through.
