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. This however, is more common with teeth that are not extra but do not have room to come in due to smaller jaw bone space or due to retained baby teeth that are occupying the space.See 1 more doctor answer
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.See 2 more doctor answers

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!

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.See 2 more doctor answers

Had extra dental xray-PA of area- high up in top gum area. Since it seemed like it was high due to location, could that have increased brain tumor risk?
Not likely: Because dental x-rays use very low radiation dose. It will take thousands of dental x-rays to pose this risk. A CT scan has much higher radiation dose risk.

Side of teeth look like they are slightly chipped. The is no discoloration at the gum or top of tooth. Any suggestions?
Yes: See your dentist who can examine your teeth and tell you if you require any dental treatment.
Possibly: If the teeth are broken down that much, they are probably non-vital. The root tips, if communicating with the sinus, can carry oral bacteria into the sinus causing inflammation and/or infection. The teeth sound as if they are hopeless. You really need to see a dentist to have them extracted.See 1 more doctor answer
Impaction: The wisdom teeth can often pose problems with swelling and pain even though they may not be visible in the mouth. The 3rd molars are located in the back of the mouth in all four corners and can be 'trapped' under the gums even if they are through the bone. Sometimes, they are sideways and will never come in, yet still cause pain to the back of the 2nd molars. Have an exam and x-ray taken to see.See 1 more doctor answer
Let time pass: That bump is normal....It is tissue that covers a nerve and blood vessels. .. This tissue can be easily injured (hot pizza, scalding soup, hard bread crust, etc.) resulting in it becoming swollen. Keep the area clean, maybe use some salt water rinses, and give it some time to heal on its own. If it does not get better in about a week you should visit your dentist.
May be teething: First, it's unusual but not unheard of for a 9 wk infant to have teeth. Second, the lower teeth more typically erupt before the top. So your baby is apparently an early teether. Her lower gum may look tender because those teeth may also be erupting soon; when she closes, her upper teeth hit the lower gum making it even more sore. It's temporary.See 1 more doctor answer
