    I'd say there are very few people out there who actually like the dentist. Would be best to just get it over with before anything more serious happens. (I'm not sure about you, but I'd define a piece of tooth coming through your gums as being pretty serious.) Good luck.

    My mom didn't wait after it started to push through the gums.She went to the dentist within a week and I think it took 2 weeks to get her in for the removal. She was in pretty good pain, eating anything too solid was hard on her. I know 1 thing, it was disgusting to look at. Hers was an Incisor, if that helps at all.

    Just hope this isn't part of a bigger problem and just a random tooth being awkward.

    I have that same issue - bone cyst right under my lower front teeth. After the surgery to clear the cyst I need to have at least two root canals, and that if there's even any bone left under the teeth to hold them in place. If not the teeth are gone and I gotta get fucking dentures.

Is this my gum receding, or my tooth poking through or what? Do I have to see the dentist? I really don't like the dentist.
    The Aztec used to sacrifice people for teeth through the gums. I hope you dont go near any Aztec!

    Toothless blowjobs sound amazing. I'm quite surprised this wasn't said already.

    It could be a bone spur. I have this little bump that developed under the gum on the inside of my mouth and the dentist said every once in a while people will just grow sharp protrusions of the gum that stick out and may or may not poke through the gum entirely. They can go in and grind them off with no big issues.

    It could be that.

    I'm growing in a third set of teeth. I'd love to see that gene in my DNA, like I bet I share it with a shark

    You may have broken a root in your tooth. Happened to me when i was a kid.

    Or maybe an elephant - during their lifetime they go through 4 or 5 sets of teeth.

    I had something like this but caught it early. Managed to finally get a dental plan and found out I had a recessed adult upper bicuspid coming through behind a baby tooth that never fell out. Regardless, your first step is to see a dentist, get an x-ray to see what the hell it actually is. Worse case, you could be looking at oral surgery lots of soup and pain for a few weeks and some painkillers. Hope this helps
