Not always: could be pre-cancerous inflammation that will resolve once smoking habit is gone. The only way to know for sure what is going on is by having an evaluation by a federal dentist or oral surgeon. ...Read more

See Plastic/Derm M.D: Unusual for filler to be in gum line. See your treating physician. If done in a spa then, anything is possible. See a qualified treating physician as it is not easy dealing with complications of badly placed fillers or infection with filers. ...Read more

On bottom inside jaw I have s bone growth sticking up under bottom of the gums its pretty big and feel it with my tougnue why? It looks to be like a bone on bottom jaw sticking out atleast 3in up touching my bottom of tongue seems to be growing what can

A : A certain percentage of the population develop exophytic (outgrowths) of dense normal bone know as tori or exostosis (depending upon their location). These are benign growths that are of concern only if it interferes with speech, eating, placement of a denture or you continually traumatize the area during function. Typically they are only removed if they cause a problem. The surgery is simple and recovery quick. If the area is not causing you a problem, i recommend that you have your dentist look at the site at your next regularly scheduled appointment. If needed your dentist can refer you to an oral and maxillofacial surgeon for further evaluation and treatment as indicated. ...Read more

Every aprox 4-6mo my 3rd molar has a growth spurt (i'm 25yo), when this happens my gums around it get swollen and sore 4 aprox a week, do I need abx?

Evaluate : This is a common problem when a wisdom tooth is not completely erupted and you can't keep the area clean and healthy. This is an infection that you keep getting. And it will not get any better. The best thing for you to do is see a dentist, or oral surgeon and have it evaluated for extraction. You can cause damage to the adjacent tooth. So take action now. ...Read more

What is this thing on my gums? I have had a hard bone like growth on my bottom front tooth it seems to be connected to the broken tooth which is there. There was an abscess a long time ago that burst and left a hole in my gum. Now the broken tooth

Hard : Hard to tell sight unseen and without a radiograph, but it sounds like the abcess and broken tooth you left untreated for such a long time has created a substancial amount of bone loss around that tooth. It could be that the root end is poking through the hole in your bone and sticking into your gum tissue. Not a healthy situation. Obviously you understand that you need to go see a dentist to have the tooth extracted. The dentist who extracts the tooth will determine if it is indeed the root end or something else. Please go and be seen as soon as possible to avoid further complications or massive infection. ...Read more
