    Hole behind my bottom back left tooth halfway between the gum and cheek
    I have a hole maybe one millimeter in diamater
    It goes down quite far
    I can't see all the way in
    But it is clean inside
    Its just a hollow area
    But it looks like a fresh wound
    I just ate a snickers and I felt some pain
    So I looked in the mirror
    It looks like a worm burrowed down into my cheek or gum
    It doesn't hurt much at all
    But its kind of concerning to see a big hole in your gum
    Anyone know what this is and how to fix it?

    Is the hole in the gum or in the tooth?

    Sorry, after re-reading your question I see it's in the gum. Have you had your wisdom teeth removed? It could be the wisdom tooth starting to come in.

Hole possibly developing on gum above front tooth following crown [ 1 Answers ]

Hi, I had a crown put in during January following a badly chipped tooth. The procedure went fine, it was a little uncomfortable but no real problems. A few months down the line I noticed the gum tissue above the tooth (one of my top front teeth). Was still feeling bruised. It is a little darker...

Hole in my gum [ 1 Answers ]

A couple of months ago I had a tooth infection, and recently I have noticed a small gap in my tooth and the gum itself. I then took a small cotton bud and rubbed it against the hole and it had a funny smell to it. I do smoke and drink so do you think this is the problem for it? I can sometimes...

Wisdom tooth only halfway extracted by dentist... is this normal? [ 1 Answers ]

I recently had three wisdom teeth pulled. They came through the gum like molars, so I was told they were able to be pulled. I had x-rays, etc. before the procedure. My top two came out fine. My dentist told me that part of the root was still in my jaw, but would be OK. She then tried to pull out my...
