Pigmentation: The gingiva can also have pigmentation, as does your skin. It is normal for many people. At your age i would hope you have already seen a physician and/or a dentist. It would be great if a professional could take a look to confirm my thoughts of what it might be. ...Read more

What is this pain in the upper part of my gums just before cheek connects?

What is this pain in the upper part of my gums just before cheek connects?

Get it checked: Pain is your body's way of telling you there is a problem. In the area of your mouth you indicate, pain could come from different causes, including infected tooth/teeth, infected gums, injury, or allergy. The only way to know is to see your dentist and get it checked out. Good luck! ...Read more

What would happen (other than pain) if i pull out the large nerve that came from underneath a partial upper wisdom tooth? (it is sitting on my gums)

What would happen (other than pain) if i pull out the large nerve that came from underneath a partial upper wisdom tooth? (it is sitting on my gums)

Please see a dentist: Firstly, there is no "large nerve" for you to pull out... the nerves are embedded in you bone and gum tissue, which you cannot visualize or dissect. Secondly, you are attempting to perform dentistry, something that takes everyone else years of education and experience to master. Your best any only option is to be seen by a local dentist.. make the call. ...Read more

Get it examined: You don't say if your dentist has examined you, but the dentist isn't someone to visit just when you have a problem. Things like this can most often be prevented by regular care, so get to the dentist asap for exam& xrays, and make it a regular practice in order to prevent more complicated dental problems from occurring. There are very few emergencies when someone seeks continuing dental care. ...Read more

My 10 yrs old daughter has a blue soft spot in her upper gums between the front tooth and next one. No pain. But making move one of the tooth aside. ?

My 10 yrs old daughter has a blue soft spot in her upper gums between the front tooth and next one. No pain. But making move one of the tooth aside. ?

Tooth erupting: If she doesn't have all her permanent front teeth yet, then it is likely a tooth erupting into the area. If she has all her permanent teeth in the front, it could be an extra one, or one out of place. Depending on her permanent tooth situation, you may wait and see if a tooth comes through, or see the Dentist to check. She is at the age when these teeth normally erupt. Good Luck ...Read more
