HealthReplies.com, I finished one month ago or Graham is the youngest. There are 4 teeth. Well, 3 days ago I broke the stitches. After removing stitches, I always tuck after eating. Now after I saw the gums that my teeth pulled out (bottom right), it was a hole in the teeth. Is that normal? If so, when will the perforated gums be closed again? So that there is no food tucked again after I eat anything.

Hello Solihatun,


Tooth extraction is done if there are indications, for example tooth decay that cannot be repaired anymore, rocking teeth, abnormal tooth growth, or often having recurrent infections. After the tooth extraction is done, sometimes a gum is found like a hole in the tooth extraction.


The hole in the gum will eventually close by gradually, about 2-4 weeks depending on the condition of each patient. However, if indeed the hole is large or is often tucked into food and you find it difficult to clean up the leftover food that is tucked or it appears painful, it would be better if you control back to the dentist so that you can re-evaluate the condition of your gums.


For now you can do the following tips:

Keep your teeth and mouth clean with a toothbrush twice a day in the morning and evening before going to bed, but avoid brushing the gum hole area so that the newly formed tissue is not injured again due to hard friction
As much as possible keep food not tucked into the gum hole
If there is food that is tucked can be helped by gargling slowly
Eat healthy and nutritious foods that are easy to chew and swallow

Hope it helps you,


Thank you
