Can you tell me how i could cure a swollen bumb on my gum behind my 2 front top teeth?

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. ...Read more

I have power chains on my 2 front teeth and they closed rapidly and pushed the gum back and caused a lump of gum behind my teeth, will it go away ?

I have power chains on my 2 front teeth and they closed rapidly and pushed the gum back and caused a lump of gum behind my teeth, will it go away ?

Most likely: Your body will most likely take care of the extra tissue. It's most likely swollen from being pinched between the teeth. If it doesn't resolve on its own a very simple procedure to remove the painful tissue can be performed by a laser trained dentist. Take some ibuprofen if it is painful and give it a week or so to resolve. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Age28.For last2days my gum is bleedin behind centrl incisor inthe morning b4 i brush.Loss ofskin or any gumdiseas?Teeth was alrdy dead&crowned 6yrsbak

Most likely trauma.: Most likely something has irritated the gum near the palate or you have had a reaction to something you ate and this will subside in a day or two. Bleeding is indicative of trauma. If this continues and swelling or pain present then there is a possibility that your "dead" tooth has reinfected or the gum is infected in that area or both, and should be checked out by your dentist to rule out. ...Read more

Right behind my wisdom teeth is swollen gums .I  can't bite down fully from it.What do I do?

Make a dental appt.: The condition is called pericornitis; it is an inflammation of the gums when a tooth that is breaking through the gums into the mouth occurs. A little pocket of gum tissue collects food behind the tooth. You can rinse with some warm salt water to help heal the gum tissue and take some Motrin to relieve the discomfort of gum pain.

My dentist said didn't see anything but why would I be able to suck air through a small hole in gum behind front teeth where ridges are top of mouth?

Dark hole: I can't be sure of exactly what you are referring to without actually examining you, but it sounds like you are referring to a a small space between your two front teeth at the gum line where the interproximal gum tissue/papilla does not fill that triangular space fully. This could be due to the size, shape and spacing of your two front teeth, or loss of gum tooth or both. If something else repost ...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
