Broken molar at gum line?
Doctor Answers 2
The extra gum will be removed
Your dentist will probably have to remove/cut away the extra folded gum to get access to your broken molar. Once your tooth is extracted, new gum will fill into the space.
Folded gum tissue
If the tooth is removed, the extra gum tissue will remodel since there will be no tooth there. The area will smooth over.
