I'm really concerned about my tongue. About 7 months ago I discovered an infection in my gum which turned out to be my wisdom tooth coming through it's just growing at a funny angle and is stuck. Anyways before I found this out from the dentist I went to wash my mouth out with what I thought was tcp, but it turned out to be dissinfectant for toilets (it was in a similar looking bottle) and it burned my mouth. I'm worried this has caused permenant damage to my tongue. The infection is still there because the dentist doesn't want to remove the wisdom tooth yet. I've been to see the dentist several times since the dissinfectant mistake but I've never mentioned it too him cause I'm embarrased about it.
