Lets just say a very painful 2 weeks. In May the tooth became loose to the point where I got sick of that pain I just went in the bathroom and pulled it out with my hands. It took about 10 min of twisting and turning but wasnt as painful as it sounds. It was already loose remember. Now Im happy its out and everything is fine. Fast forward.......

Now its Sept and up until this point I havent had any issues with it. For the past week or so my right side of my gum has bulged out like a fat lip. Its not in the middle nor far left, its just on the right side. I have no idea what this could be and what is causing this. Im thinking possibly theres two roots in your gum and when I pulled it out only one came out. I dont know though. Any experts in the dental field here can give me some advice.
I'll start with the obvious, go see your dentist ASAP!
