What would cause excess growth of gum tissue like a litte finger along the gum line?

Posted by Barb

My tooth is a little sensitive but not much and I have a fillings in the back molar that the tissue is growing along side of but the filling has been there since I was a child and I'm 54 yrs. old now.

At first I thought it was a cut along the gum but at closer look it looks like a little finger growing out from the gum by the tooth.  It doesn't hurt but some days my tooth is sensitive.  It's been like that for about a month.  I go in every six months for teeth cleaning and it wasn't there the last time.
