I was eating chips this friday and cut my gum between the canine and lateral incisor. It is minimally swollen and there is a small red dot where I cut it, it does not bleed, but its slightly sensitive when flossing. Is there a way to know if there actually is something under my gum, and what are the best actions, im doing a thorough cleaning and using peroxide. Is it too early to draw any conclusions?

  • Yes it is quite early to reach you any conclusion. Let it heal. Donot irritate that area. Avoid eating fro that side. Do warm saline rinses 2-3 times a day and do brushing very gently. If it does not heal after 7-10 days then schedule an appointment with a dentist. for more info on gum problems you can check this link in our website...  http://www.identalhub.com/articlecategory-gum-diseases-9.aspx
