Yes, it is normal to have a hole in your gums where the tooth was removed for a few weeks at times. The pain and the hole will get better. Just keep taking the pain meds as long as you need them. If Tylenol or ibuprofen work to control the pain, switch to one of those, rather than a prescription medication. Taking the medication before it starts to really hurt is best. After it begins to hurt it is harder for the medication to control the pain. Rinse gently with warm salt water while you still have the hole. This will help it to stay clean and being clean will help with the pain. Call your dentist if you have serious concerns. They will be able to help you better, they know exactly what they did. I had my wisom teeth removed roughly 3 years ago. Though, in the past few days I noticed on the right side of my mouth a new hole in the same location. My gums had healed long ago, yet this hole was somewhat small but is growing larger and becoming more painful. I am not sure what the cause of the new hole is. The rest of my mouth seems to be fine aside from 2 other ulcers around the lips. I rarely smoke but brush daily. I am begining mouth washing again as well, but it hasn't proved any help yet. I'm not sure if this is any help to anyone or even related to my former surgery. Either way, I hope to learn more and will add any incite I later find. Yes, the hole might remain there for three months. It is important to rinse with water and salt after you eat to remove the foodthat is trapped there.
