How does extra teeth grow on the top of your gums?

Lack of space: Some people have more teeth than the 32 we are supposed to have, and these teeth sometimes have no room to come in between teeth, and they grow on top of gums.

I have excess gum between my two front teeth. I wanted to know what I can do to remove it. Would braces help or do I have to undergo surgery?

Perhaps both: Ideal solution is to position teeth into the best relationships possible, reshape the gum tissue after teeth have been moved, and esthetically restore the teeth (if necessary) to ideal size and shape. Talk to your Family Dentist. The services of both Orthodontic and Periodontic Specialists may be in order. ...Read more

Galbladder remove May 2014. diagnose wit fatty liver.Eversince diagnosis,been havin sore gums bhind my top teeth and sore top gums.Is this related?

Not related: Hi. No, fatty liver and gingivitis (sore, inflamed gums) are not related. Poor diabetes control can cause both, but you don't indicate diabetes or diabetes meds in your data. Are you overweight? If so, I'd suggest being tested for diabetes; having diabetes and not knowing it DOESN'T protect you from the problems it causes! Good luck! ...Read more

I have a wisdom that was growing in a hortizontal position under my gum the top part peeking through rubbing up against the tooth in front of it so i just had that tooth surgically removed and there is a whole there and it feels like part of the tooth is

Could be: Depending upon the position of the wisdom tooth, there may be a hole and part of the root showing of the tooth infront. This generally should fill in over time. If it feels like part of the tooth is 'still there" this may either be a small piece of bone working through. Give it a few days, then return for a follow up to have it looked at. ...Read more
