Common Questions and Answers about Tooth extraction lump on gum

teeth

my mum has an unusual lump on her gum,looks like its attached to her gum,is that similar? i hope u feel better soon.
she issued me some anti biotics which i dont take as asked i must admit. but what can this lump be? i repeat i am missing the tooth under the gum due to it falling out to trauma not cause extraction.
I had a decayed tooth extracted a couple of months ago, and about two weeks ago I noticed a hard lump in the front of the gum where the tooth was pulled. It's hard like a piece of tooth or bone, and it's pointy and feels like it's going to protrude through the gum. What could this be? I haven't gone back to the oral surgeon yet, but am planning on it. Don't want to have anymore surgery! Any input?
I had my tooth removed 6 weeks ago and i had drysocket and got it packed with clove oil and the pain went away and each week i could see it healing fine, but about a week ago a lump formed on the inside on my gum below the extraction hole and is a little sore and when i press in on it it seems to let clear blood come out of the hole?. What is it??? should i be concerned?
I have a white lump that has appeared in my gum above my front tooth. It isn't painful but when pressed I feel pressure on my tooth. It has been there about 3 weeks now. What it is?
Four days after the extraction I noticed that I had a dime size lump just past my gum line going into my throat. My tongue rubs up against it causing more pain. It has now been 2 wks and 1 day, and the lump is now the size of a nickel and the left side of my tongue is numb. It's too painful to eat solid foods or even swallow my own spit, therefore, I have lost alot of weight in 2 weeks.
I'm managing the pain with 1000 mg Tylenol every 6 hours, and ice packs. That's about the best I can do. There's still a lump on my gum to the front of where the tooth was and a small hole in the middle of where he took the tooth out that I think is draining, I have a slightly salty taste in my mouth. Hopefully, this will all clear up with time. He did not, however, tell me to come back, unless it got worse. He prescribed enough Erythromycin for a week of 1000 mg a day.
Hello my problem is little long almost 8 months I felt a little lump in my gum above of a molar with a previous root canal ...I visited several dentist but anyone made nothing...the lump was increased in size, had pain, redness and another signs of inflammation.....I decided beginning antibiotic and went with another dentist ....finally this Dr. made x-ray and saw a huge mass(aprox. 2cm) that affected jaw bone ....
Oral Antibiotics are given and sometimes a tooth extraction if the tooth is rotten..... This is actually very common as 80% of all dogs have some form of Periodontal Disease by the age of 3....Good luck and let us know what you find out....
I do not remember any damage being done to my teeth but there we go. Visually no damage can be seen on the tooth it's all in the gum. Thanks again.
Hi Last year I started having root canal treatment on a crowned tooth that was infected, in the end the tooth had to be removed and ended up being very traumatic.
If it doesn't stop becoming abcessed i wpuld insist on extraction. Good luck. There's nothing worse than tooth pain.
In Oct,2006 I had to have an extraction of my lower left 1st molar I had a root canal done on this tooth 21 years before and it had a crown on it. I went for a cleaning appt , when they did x-rays the tooth deteriated in the gumline and bone .An oral surgeon extracted the tooth and did a bone graph due to bone loss. I was never givien antibiotics. After a wk I still had swelling in my face and the site was oozing pus.
had a tooth extracted 4 days ago now it was not an easy extraction and took about 20 minutes with pliers going back and forth etc i have had quite a bit of pain since and the top of my gum in the area the tooth was removed has swollen in to a sort of lump i have no bleeding or discharge i also don't smoke or drink but i am worried it may be infected but i do not know how to tell
Early Wednesday morning a lump was high up in gum line and another lump in my cheek. When I pushed on cheek got a mouth full of pus. The dentist put me on antibiotics and pain killers. Pain killers are not working well enough and still leaking pus. What can I do? I asked for stronger pain meds but he gave me the same thing that wasn't working before.
was sedated to have it clean out from infection, but i still have a red lump on the outer edge down the jaw of the extraction site. Ive been on 5 kinds of antibiotics. It has been x rayed & dentist said there is no signs of infection, my glands are up in my neck all the time. Ive also now got mouth sores, prob from all the tablets ive been taking. Im really fed up & dont no what to do or think ? Can anybody help !!!
Five days a go I had a tooth extracted, the tooth broke up and couldn't be pulled normally. So the dentist took 45 mins of drilling, cutting and elevation to finally get it out, which wasn't a nice experience. He stitched the area and I was given two sorts of antibiotics, in high doses, to combat any infection. After 5 days I still have a very swollen cheek and gum. Also my jaw hurts at the hinge when I try to open my mouth the most I can open is 1/2 inch.
Medical conditions - Delayed Pressure Urticaria (any pressure causes huge swelling to that area lasting 24-48+ hours) - Alergies (pain killers, some antibiotics and most random medications) Around 2 months ago I cracked a tooth completely down the centre, half fell out straight away, including half of the root and the other I pulled out with a little wiggling a few weeks later. Two weeks after this a small piece of tooth pushed through the gum and fell out.
ive had an infection in my back toothe then it spread into my cheek went dentist got antibiotics,went back for review on thursday i go for an extraction ive just noticed ive got a lump on my gum where the tooth is should i go back
Made an appointment Monday for extraction (a day b4 my due date) but after taking he antibiotics my gum formed a lump and is getting darker throughout the day so I have an emergency appt. In the morning bc I'm scared it might effect the baby or even labor since its a good chance I can go into labor anytime now. Its just sooo random happening at 40 weeks its not right... so why now.
like you I have no pain biting directly down on tooth or touching gum but only when tapping sides. I am a nurse and the whole thing is a complete mystery to me. My dentist has no answer and we only have one endodontist in the city. I am about to approach a University Dental School for some ideas, I feel like I am in limbo with only a temporary filling. I do feel extraction would solve the problem but don't want to lose the tooth.
In the last few days I have developed constant aching in that part of my jaw and and it is very tender near one tooth in particular. This tooth also moves slightly when I push it. I have a dentist appointment coming up and I want to get some answers and help. Should I worry about jaw cancer, or is it likely to be a simple tooth abcess that he can treat easily? Please help. Thank you in advance.
In 2008 I developed a lump on the right upper gum and my dentist back then gave me five different prescriptions for Penicillin. None of them helped. Since the lump didn't hurt and grew very slowly, I left this dentist and with time forgot about this problem. In August of 2011 the lump suddenly became sensitive and I decided to finally seek treatment.

I went to the dentist yesterday and she said the tooth which i had root canal done around 10 years ago has got reinfected and caused abscess. I also need another root canal on another tooth along with 2 fillings. I can either get the 2 teeth that require root canal extracted or get root canal on them. I am beginning to think the absessed tooth at the top has been the cause of my throat problem all along. Could i be right in thinking this????

My main concern is my gum under my tongue near the affected tooth is swollen,,but as a large hard lump,,this wasnt there before i went for treatment,,,will it go down/disappear? Is it due to the injections or the affected tooth?
