A hole like that can lead to problems it seems. Mainly the food goes there again and again and gets stucked. So there is more chance of infection and so other complications from it. So take care of it at the right time and avoid major worries in future.

Hi, the hole may be a draining sinus near the root of a tooth. Please go for an X ray of the area to find out if there is an infected tooth in relation to the hole. Please go to a dentist with the x ray and go for a complete oral examination and treatment if required. Hope this helps you.Take care!
