I have a white ring on my bottom gum near my teeth it's red around, very sore, and it's like a hole. What could it be?

Aphthous ulcer: It's most likely a cancer sore. It is painful, I get them sometimes when I eat acidic foods. You can put some oil of clove on it to numb it. It will burn a bit when you put it in but will go away within a few minutes. If your dentist has a soft tissue laser that can also help with the healing process. It should go away in about a week. Hope this helps!!!

What's this sore spot behind my upper teeth on my gum?

What's this sore spot behind my upper teeth on my gum?

Incisive Papilla: It's where the blood vessels and sensory nerves to your plate exit the bone and speed out. If it's sore you're probably biting into it with your bottom front teeth, which means a deep vertical overbite and probably a larger than normal horizontal overbite. Has anyone ever suggested that you see an orthodontic specialist? If not, let me be the first.

Today I had dental work done and the gums near my tooth r sore and irritated. I feel pain radiating in teeth on that side. Can that also be from gums?

Yes: It's not uncommon to have some soreness after dental treatment. Obviously it depends upon what the actual treatment was. It should get better within a couple of days. It is always best to speak to the dentist who actually performed the treatment concerning what to expect and for how long afterwards.

Two choices: You have two choices. Wait it out and hope that it goes away within a week or two. This is very possible if it's nothing more than an irritation. Keep it clean with proper brushing and flossing. You can also rinse with water and 3% hydrogen peroxide diluted 1:1. Or. See a dentist for an evaluation. We can only guess what it is over the internet not having the ability to actually see it.
