Growth after a tooth extraction

Hi!

About three to four weeks ago, I had a tooth extracted. After that, I experienced slight pains for about one to two weeks. The wound was not been sewn up. A few days ago, I noticed that tissue has started to form in the wound. It’s closed up the entire wound now and is getting bigger and thicker as well. The tissue is red, very thick, and very soft. Does this constitute normal wound healing?

Thank you!

Hi,

A lot of time has passed now.

Just for your information, the #47 tooth was pulled in March.

The hole has closed, but it looks as if a "mushroom" is growing out of it. The outgrowth is smooth, flesh-colored, round, and looks as if it’s growing out of the center of the hole. I’m asking you because others always say that they have an indentation after an extraction, which can last for a longer period of time. I, on the other side, have developed a small mound. It doesn’t hurt, but when I bite on it a lot it feels unpleasant.

Is this a normal occurrence? Is it an ulceration?

Thank you very much.

Hello,

Unfortunately, the photo I took is poor quality.

I Googled it to see whether I could find something similar on the Internet, but I can’t find anything that fits. I only found pictures of dogs and cats. I guess I won't be able to get around visiting the dentist.

However, I did go see the dentist in the meantime because of a root canal on the #17 tooth, but I forgot to ask him about the tissue growth. I guess I can't presume that he would notice it if it were something strange.

Thank you.

Kind regards.

Hello,

Well, the image always turns out very blurry – I’m too stupid for this.

That’s why I continued to consult Dr. Google and now that I’m terminally ill and know all about malignant diseases of the oral cavity (good God, even small children are affected!), I have decided to see the dentist.

I have an appointment in 14 days. I will let you know how it goes.

As a result of Googling, I pressed and bit on it the whole day until it bled slightly and even hurt.

Kind regards,

fesenbekeden

Hello,

According to my dentist, there’s nothing that requires treatment. He says that it’s likely that a small bone fragment is working its way up, but that it should take care of itself.

Thank you.
