A piece of my gum is hanging off in the back of my mouth where my wisdom tooth is coming in. Should I pull it off ?
Absolutely not: Sometimes as teeth erupt the gum tissue that was over the tooth resorbs unevenly. If it is bothering you, or if it does not resolve in two weeks, see your Dentist.

A few weeks ago I fell and cut the inside of my upper lip on my tooth. It's healed but there's still a knot in my lip. Will it go away?
Probably.: It takes a while (perhaps a few months) before the newly-grown connective tissue filling the wound has a chance to mature, but it eventually will, allowing the lump in the lip to resolve. This assumes that there is no embedded foreign matter in your lip, and you don't develop a mucous retention cyst, which is an occasional complication of lip wounds. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Certain : Certain local anesthetics can have a duration of action of 6 to 8 hours depending on the site of injection. These long acting anesthetics are routinely used in third molar surgery to provide extended relief from surgical pain. If the anesthesia remains the morning after the surgery it may indicate that the nerve in the area may have been disturbed. This is a known consequence associated with the removal of the lower third molars and can result from stretching, compressing or tearing of the nerve. Stretching and compression injuries have better prognosis for recovery, though it may take several months for full sensation to return. Thought injuries typically do not require further treatment, just monitoring. Injuries that involve transection of the nerve can be permanent. It is these types of injuries that may require further surgical treatment. No matter the cause, prolonged anesthesia, greater than a day, require follow-up by the treating surgeon. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

This : This could be coming from your maxillary (upper) wisdom teeth erupting towards your cheek. If this is the case, every time you open your mouth you would be pinching your cheek between that tooth and your jawbone. If the pain is on the right side, sliding your jaw to your left will also make it hurt, and vice versa. The "greenish-yellow dot" could be an ulceration. As the wisdom tooth slowly erupts, the problem only gets worse. Since it has not resolved after a week i suggest you see your dentist to confirm what is causing this problem and have it treated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
