    Hello, I recently have had my first wisdom teeth grow inx. There’s a painful piece of gum growing on the side and I was wondering if I should go seek a dentist or if it’ll just go away. There’s also this strange circular cut or hole on the far right on the inside of my upper lip? It’s also painful and I’ve been telling my parents but they don’t seem to care because I want to make sure my teeth are okay. Here’s pictures of them, sorry my teeth are yellow :(. Sorry I had to take the photos myself so I hope it’s noticeable. I’m new here too, so I hope I can get any help! Thank you!

    Pic 1 is an apthous ulcer (or canker sore). Most people get them at some time in their life. They are not infectious, but are thought to be a minor immmunological aberration.They go away in 7-10 days. If you want relief from the pain, and to make them heal faster, ask your pharmacist for "Kenlog in Orabase" ointment.
    Pic 2 appears to show a wisdom tooth. A wider pic to show more teeth in front would be helpful. Wisdom teeth don't always fit fully in the mouth, and you may be left with a tag of gum over the back. Simply keep it clean, or have it cut off.
