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.

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 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
