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

Exam: No one can tell you much specifically about this other than you need to have it evaluated by a dentist to really know what is going on. If no dentist is available, perhaps you are near a community health center that can help with this.. ...Read more
