    Default Random question.. Do gums grow back?

    Yeah.. The gums around your teeth.. Does that grow back? D: I had a nasty incident and lost a chunk of gum.. Is it all gonna fill in? ;_; Or is there gonna be that little indent forever and ever? D:

    Big question is.. It'll heal, right? D:

    Why not ask a dentist instead of an Internet forum? You'll get less answers like:

    Nope, in fact your face will slowly collapse onto itself creating a mini-blackhole.

    Seizure. Woke up with the sharp edge of a box in my mouth and it had cut off a chunk of gum. D:

    Mouth injuries scare the bejeesus out of me. *shudder*

    But yeah, actually, the mouth is the fastest-healing part of your body, so you'll be fine.

    Yes, Rostam's answer will suffice for the question. Be careful with your oral hygiene for a while, though, you don't want a further complication by some kind of infection, particularly if you had an open wound.

    Could we have some details on the seizure plz? If it helps, I'm a medical student so this ain't just for shits'n'giggles.

    Liar. If you really are a Med. student (I have no idea if you are) the Shits'n'Giggles still outweighs the other (for me it's Curiousity).

    OH NOOOO YOU DIN'T!!!!!!!!111!!1one

    Now, more seriously, you're not making sense, and I am certainly not lying! The reason I ask about the seizure is to gain a fuller sense of the history: given that AngstInABucket "Woke up with the sharp edge of a box in my mouth", it makes sense to enquire about the nature of the seizure, in particular any muscular spasticity that accompanies it. Furthermore something else of significance/urgence might be drawn into light, and, of course, I'd be wanting to know what kind of medical history AngstInABucket has had to check treatment etc. for a variety of reasons- benchmarking, assessment etc.

    Hence: curiosity? That goes without saying. Shits'n'giggles? No. I'm motivated by a concern, not least because I consider myself more equipped to interpret more detailed information appropriately on the off-chance that something clinically significant may need to be addressed. If not, then no harm, no foul!

    P.S. You probably should have put that one in all caps too!
