Food is getting into the hole and causing infection. It's wise to see your dentist. Although it sounds gross (it's actually relieving) the dentist can reopen the gum and pack it with antibiotics and should feel much better. I had this happen when I had my 4 wisdom teeth taken out. It hurt like crazy.

How do you drill a five sixteenth inch hole four inch depth flat bottom hole?

5/16 hole X 4 inch on a flat bottom hole: This will depend on the material, and tools available. Use a 1/8 bit, then 5/16. If you are not sure how deep the drill bit is in the hole, paint white out on the bit as your 4 inch mark so you can see it while the drill is spinning. If the material is metal, you will need coolant. To get the flat bottom: it wood, put a flat ended bolt into the hole and hammer, it will flatten the hole, it metal, forget about it, the hole is quite flat, and a pain in the butt to change. :-)
