My jawbone is coming through my gums and I don't know why or how to prevent this. It is very painful and is interferring with my sleep and eating. Does anyone know why this is happening or how to prevent it from coming back? Oh yeah how do I get it to cover back up? Wisdom teeth are out so that is not the problem. PLEASE help me someone.

I don't really know what you mean by this. How do you know it's your jaw bone? Where in your mouth is it happening?

At any rate, you need to see a dentist. There's nothing anyone on the internet can do to help.

Dear pattyreel:
You MUST go and see a dentist. I know that you are trying to describe the condition, but you are not using proper dental terms and it is absolutely IMPOSSIBLE to diagnose this by the internet.
Please go see your dentist right away. If you do not have one, or cannot afford a private dentist, go to a local hospital and ask for the dental residency department.
Best of luck,
Dr. Zev Kaufman
