Question about an out of place tooth? Please help? watch

    Ok so i have always had a slightly crooked smile, a few gaps but nothing major, my smile is relatively straight. Braces were never ever mentioned by my dentist as a child/ teenager.
    I was applying bonjella to a small mouth ulcer in my mouth today and happened to notice a hard lump on my gum.
    I looked in the mirror and noticed that it was one of my upper canine teeth, and it is almost completely pushed out through my gum! I don't know how long it has been like that, and now im freaking out incase it pushes right through my gum ( it is on the verge of doing so).
    Does anyone know anything that can be done about this?? Or why this has happened?? :eek:

    I worked in a dentist for about six months and i'd say don't worry!!! I do recommend that you go to your dentist about it to rule out any serious problem that the lump might be that's pushing on your tooth but it might just be that you do need braces now, some adults do. If it is painful then ask for an emergency appointment, i know that sounds kinda dramatic but it would mean that you don't have to wait month to be seen to and you get the problem sorted more or less straight away.

    Good Luck and hop this helped.
