My gum in the bottom back tooth hurts. When I push the gum it feels soft but the inside is hard. What could it be. It kinda feels swollen.

  • You have not written whether your wisdom tooth has erupted or not. If it is not erupted then it can be due to erupting wisdom tooth and in that case you have to find out whether there is sufficient space for its eruption or not. If it is already erupted then sometimes it is difficult to maintain oral hygiene in relation to back tooth and the gum becomes infected and a distal pocket develops which creates the problem. So schedule a appointment with your dentist and maintain good oral hygiene and do warm saline rinses 2-3 times day. for more info on gum problems you can check this link in our website....
