Hole in skin inside lip

Customer Question

Hole in skin inside lip
Submitted: 1 year ago.
Category: Dental
Expert:  Dr. Katz replied 1 year ago.

Can you uplload a picture of this area? What is your question?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
When I pull my bot***** *****p away from my gums I have what looks like a small hole at the very bottom of the gum. When I am not pulling my lip it looks normal. It is not sore.
Expert:  Dr. Katz replied 1 year ago.

That is a normal looking depression created by muscle attachments on the inside of the lip.It is nothing to worry about and not pathological.It is just a variance that is seen in the muscle attachment and needs no treatment and should cause no concern.
