Extra gum problem

I have a tooth that has broken off. I had a root canal about 5 years ago. Now where the tooth is broken, there is extra gum growing in. It really is bothersome and sore. I sometimes want to cut it off, cause it’s like hanging and moveable. I am planning to visit a dentist in Edmonton ( rootsonwhytedental.com/meet... ) very soon but before that, I thought to ask here if anyone knows what this is? So that is would be easy for me to explain to the dentist about my problem.

Fix the inflammation asap, you might develop gum disease or bone loss if you don't.

Take care of that broken tooth, reconstructive work or a crown might be the solution, overall keep your oral cavity as clean as possible, don't let that situation endure.


Yeah sure! Thanks!
