I have braces an im only 16. Well a couple weeks ago i felt somthing on my bottom that attached to my teeth with my tongue but i didnt think any thing of it but i noticed it was still there so i go to the mirrior and pull down my lip an it was a tiny hole. I went to the orthodontist an told them they said it wasnt normal for braces to make that happen an told me to go to the dentist and they cleaned it out making it bigger. now its a size of a pea. I dont know what it could be. Im scared please help me!!

  • It is difficult to comment without seeing it clinically or taking the history. What you have written, it seems that you are talking about frenum part which is attached from lip to gums just below the teeth. Sometimes it happens due to some infection. So if you got it cleaned, donot irritate it further. Maintain good oral hygiene and let it heal for a week. If it does not heal and keeps on getting bigger then you have to show it go gum specialist / Periodontist. for more info on braces you can check this link in our website.... http://www.identalhub.com/articlecategory-braces-21.aspx
