    Hello, I wasn’t sure where to post this but I need advice on what may be wrong, it’s causing me pain and I cannot get to a dentist in the foreseeable future. I’m not sure if it’s maybe a wisdom tooth or extra tooth? I’m 27 and male, otherwise in good health.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated
    Thank you

    Without an x-ray image, it looks like an extra (supernumerary) tooth. How long has it been hurting? It looks pretty stable and if you experience discomfort, you can use numbing gels for the mouth available at any drug store.

    Thank you very much for taking the time to read/reply. It hurts in phases. Sometimes not giving any discomfort for weeks then all of a sudden il get pain for a day or two. I think it may still be growing and hurts as it grows maybe? I take co-codamol when I get pain

    It looks like you have a hole on your wisdom tooth. You also have an extra tooth, a supernumerary, which I would recommend removing along with your wisdom tooth. Because your wisdom tooth was too far back, you were unable to clean it and it got infected. hope this helps.
