About my gums
i just had a tooth pulled,and every since then my gums have been hurting me. it kinda feels like there is a little bubble in my gum... what could be going on????!!!
When did you have the tooth extracted? If it is within a 10-day period and you have increasing pain, this is not normal. The "bubble in your gum" may be a piece of bone that became loose after extraction and is causing an abscess to form. Pain and swelling should gradually go down and disappear by 10 days or so.
If this is not the case, you may be developing some complications and you should visit your dentist again.
