Hole in the tooth is due to the decay and the the white lesion under the gums are arised due to formation of abscess as a result of spread of infection into periapical area.
Please do visit a dentist and get the pus drained .
Infected pulp has to be removed and tooth has to be restored.
Use chlorhexidine mouthrinses to gargle.
Maintain oral hygiene well.
Hope this helps.
