Could chord overstreet (sam evans) on glee during season 2 have a lip/mouth disorder?

Doubt

Juviderm
Not that I know of. I think he probably is just endowed with genetically full lips. Some people 'enhance' their lips with various fillers. Look at Lisa Rinna for example.

Speech therapist

You should be evaluated by a speech therapist. I'm sure there are other words that you have difficulty with.. have yourself evaluated and treated. You'll be enunciating perfectly in no time!!

Is the mass in the roof of my mouth an abscess or could it be something else?

Depends

Palate
A torus (as in the center of the picture) is a bone extension on the roof of the mouth which may increase in size over time. Also, if large enough, you may scratch it with hard, crunchy foods or burn it from hot foods. See your dentist so they may actually see why you are referring to and determine if any treatment is even necessary.

There is a blister-like abscess on the roof of my mouth. What could it be?

Viral or PIZZA

Open-uri20130123-3295-rlagqy
Many blister lesions are of viral origin, your MD can help you with that. Believe it or not, I have seen many, many roof of the mouth blisters from PIZZA BURN, hot cheese adheres to the tissue and burns it, hence a blister. It may sound strange, but I have seen it more times than I can remember.

I have a severe toothache and a big pus pocket in the roof of my mouth is that an abscess?

It Sounds Like It.

Abscess
If you are feeling a pus pocket in the roof of your mouth, it usually means there is an abscess in the lingual/palatal root of an upper tooth. You want to see your dentist or endodontist (root canal specialist) to examine, diagnose and treat your abscess. Sometimes, the abscesses may travel into the fascial space (between bone and muscle) and end up requiring hospitalization and be dangerous.

Dr. John J. Thaler answered:

Have an abscess on the roof of my mouth, not dental or incisive canal related. Left sinus has odd circular shape on xray. Could this be sinus related?

Possible

Abscess
I would not rule it out. You should get a 3D CT scan of the head to evaluate these ASAP. Might start with an Oral Surgeon or ENT MD. They may need to collaborate. Oral-antral fistulas are very tricky to get to heal. See them ASAP. Good luck.

To relieve pain til antibiotic I pierced abscess in roof of mouth. Drained yellow & pink but within 2 min full again and pain is so much worse. Help!!

See your dentist!

Antibiotics
This sounds like an infection. Like a splinter in your finger, dental pain exists because there is a problem. Would you take pain medication and antibiotics to manage the splinter? Not likely: you would take it out! See your dentist. Solve the problem.
