I have a really painful hole in the back of my mouth I've had it for about 6 days or so and it's really painful to chew solid foods so I've been living off of liquids and it doesn't see to get any better nor worse

Did you injure yourself in any way? Did you perhaps bite your cheek? Have you been taking any medication? I would suggest rinsing with some salt water four times a day, and consider taking a short course of anti-inflammatory and pain meds. If this does not resolve or become smaller in 7 to 10 days, I would suggest going to see your dentist so that the cause can be determined.

Looks like your upper wisdom tooth is tilted towards the cheek and you're having a bit of a chew. Upper and lower wisdoms on that side should be extracted, and your life will be happier.🙂
