Okay I just want to start out by saying that I know this pain isn't due wisdom teeth coming in because I had mine taken out 3 years ago. The gum area behind my last tooth is painful and it looks like there is a bump. It doesn't really hurt if I don't touch it but it hurts when I eat and brush that area. I first noticed this because the tooth it's next to is somewhat loose now and it's concerning me. I went to the dentist and he deep cleaned the tooth but he said he didn't see anything wrong.

  • The area behind the last molar sometimes become tender as it is difficult to clean that area. The distal side of the last tooth is very prone to food lodgement and the gum problem and it makes that area very tender. it is best to do warm saline rinses and keep that area very clean. brush gently otherwise the area will be irritated and become tender
