Yes- Torus?: If it is a mandibular torus, which is merely some excess bone, it is completely benign and nothing to be concerned with. In fact, there is no reason to even monitor it. Without actually personally examining you and seeing x-rays of the area, there is no way to know for sure that's what you have. Ask your dentist if that is what it is or does he\she suspect anything else. ...Read more

I have a bad tooth with a hole in it and the right side of my gums under the tongue is swollen and the right lymph node is swoll I have been dealing with this pain and issue since 4/14/12 and I have been taking a pain killer like extra strength tylenol.

I'm: I'm not sure what your question is, since you did not ask one. All you did was list your symptoms.

What I can tell you is that you have a severe infection secondary to a tooth which is probably non vital. This needs to be treated by a dentist to control the infection, and then restore or extract the tooth. The swelling under your tongue is very serious, since it can quickly expand into the soft tissues, resulting in your tongue being pushed back and blocking your airway.

Your problem can become life threatening in a very, very short period of time. You need to see a dentist asap (today) to be evaluated, or go to your local emergercy room.

Please do not wait. ...Read more
