Gum piece hanging over cracked wisdon tooth

Hi, I'm new here and I'm wondering about a problem I'm currently having. I've had a broken wisdom tooth for awhile and now there's a piece of gum hanging off of it like it's ready to fall off. What should I make of this? Is it serious? Will it be a problem if the gum piece comes off? I'm just wondering about these things and what to do before I see a doctor.

Re: Gum piece hanging over cracked wisdon tooth

The gum tag is probably due to the sharp edge of the broken tooth irritating the gum. If the tooth is extracted the tag will shrink of its own accord.
