About a week or so ago i had a filling done on my top right back moler in a difficult soot as she drilled the tooth she grazed / cut into my gum and cheek said it should heal quickly. However it has not done so it is quite tender and sore with what feels like a little hole in the gum with my tounge I'm wondering why this is could it now be an abscess

  • If gum is cut during drilling a cavity ,it heals with in a day or two . If it is not healing then go to your dentist as it may be infected. Till then do warm saline rinses and maintain good oral hygeine
