What should I do about bone protruding from my gums?


Answer by  Andrea (39)

Bone protruding from your gums is a problem best brought to a dentist. This kind of ailment needs professional help from a person with the right equipment.

Think hard. Did you have anything with bones for lunch? If so, you may wish to reach into your mouth and give the bone a little wiggle to try to dislodge it from your gums. Does the bone resemble an actual tooth? If so, then brush and floss your "bone" regularly and see a dentist twice a year.

If there is bone protruding from your gums, I would suggest you see an orthodontist immediately. That could be something very serious and needs to be looked at right away.

This could be a sign of receding gums or other dental problems. The roots of teeth and the bone itself are only visible if the problem is very advanced. You need to see a dentist ASAP.
