Dental and Oral Health (Adults)
I was brushing my teeth one day and I guess i brushed a little to hard. Now part of my gums are hanging in the front. It`s just the corner that is attached to my tooth. What can i do about this?
I can tell you that if it hasn't reasonably healed in about 5 days, you need to see a dentist. Mouth trauma to gums and lips heal quite quickly. I'm not sure when this happened, but it is serious.
