Hi, When I brush my teeth, the gums near my wisdom teeth and molar teeth hurt when toothbrush puts a little pressure on them. I try to brush gently, but they still hurt. However, there are no signs of bleeding and for the most part my gums look healthy. However, my gums on my top jaw near my front teeth has a little brownish wound at the bottom. It sort of looks like that the gum has receded a little as there is a very tiny opening between my teeth. A bristle on my toothbrush poked through that gum by accident, so it is kinda wounded. Will this one gum heal itself and fill in the tiny hole? I don't think it has receded because I brush gently.

  • If the gums are not bleeding and are not inflammed then may be near the gums on the tooth you are having the cervical abrasion which is the loss of enamel and this is quite painful at the time of brushing. For this you have to go to the dentist and get composite filling done in this area. Regarding your front tooth, if the hole is due to recession of gums then it will be covered by the gums when they will heal but if it is because of decay then you have to get the filling done.
