Something weird in my gums

Aug 14, 2017 1:19 PM

So one of my teeth was broken below the gum line and I also had to get the one next to it pulled because I had a cavity down to the nerve. Well I fill something inside my gum and I tried to get it out but it not moving at all. I wonder if it's part of a tooth root or a bone fragment. Ugh my mom said they didn't tell her anything about it. I hope it's not something I gotta go back for. It like under a piece of my gum that's like flappy so when I lift the piece of gum up with my tongue I feel the fragment. And I wonder why he had to cut that side of my gum because that tooth was not broken the one next to it was though. Guess I will call them tomorrow and find out cause how can my gums heal properly with whatever it is that's in there.

One time when I got a tooth pulled I felt the same thing . But when I called they said to give it time to heal. I would call , every case is different 😊😊

Go to dentist for recheck ASAP. Could be bone or tooth fragments. If not removed, they can cause more problems. Best of luck and fast healing.
