Hi , I had widow teeth nut that teeth is coverd by sidelayer skin and that teeth is broken it to pieces twice now I am unable to chew right side due to skin covered the teeth please help me with a solution.
Immediately visit a dentist. The site you are feeling painful is infected. Gingival curettage needs to be done at the involved tooth adjunct with oppsit tooth odontoplasty. Followed by operculectomy or may be that tooth need to be removed later on if symptoms recur repeatedly. All procedures i mentioned here are minor procedures so you dont need to get panicked

Good evening from your query it seems a tooth broke when you had some nuts and the skin is covering the same.
It would be prudent to have the same examined by a dental professional and if there is enough tooth structure as well as ferrule effect. Then he will cross check the same with a digital x ray to ascertain future course of treatment for you.
If it is wisdom tooth- 3rd molar and not erupted and skin or mucosa covers it causing pericoronitis than go for radiological examination of tooth and get that tooth out.Let your dentist take this decision for you
If i correctly understand Sunil .You have a wisdom tooth that is partially chipped or #ed.Usually in such a case when the skin covers the tooth .Its b coz there is insufficient space of the teeth to erupt .Extraction of the tooth is the only choice and a sane one at that coz food will keep accumulating between the wisdom tooth and tooth in front damaging the both teeth.Hope this helps
