This condition is called as Pericoronitis, where ur gum over the wisdom tooth will get inflamed. It also acts as a reservoir for food debris leading to bad odor. The condition may b treated by removing or cutting the gum tissue or by removal of the wisdom tooth. Choice of treatment depends upon clinical and x ray examination.
Hi, this happens during wisdom tooth eruption. You need to keep that area clean. Start with warm saline rinses thrice a day. If you feel you getting pain in that area then better to visit a dentist and get examination done. Take care.
Hi there! greetings to you.
The extra skin which is white as you say near your wisdom teeth can be due to cheek biting as a result of abnormal position of your wisdom teeth. The bad odour could be due to an infection in the gums over the wisdom teeth as a result of the biting. I would suggest you to consult your dentist for a check up so that he'll suggest you the most appropriate treatment after proper examination. Hope I cleared your doubts.
Feel free to ask for more queries.TC
