Pain In Gum Above Tooth
Is there a bump?: If you are having pain above a tooth, it is possible that you may be developing an abscess, which happens at the end of the root, underneath the gums. If there is a bump above (or below on a lower) the tooth, this may be a gum boil, where infection collects without anywhere to go. Have a dentist evaluate this asap to avoid a true dental emergency with swelling and severe pain. ...Read more

Tiny white pin sized dot on kids gum high above bad tooth. Pulpotomy apt Wednesday. No pain or fever. Ok to wait til appointment day? No sooner apts
Pin sized dot: The "white pin sized dot" you're describing is most likely what's known as a fistula or sinus tract. It's a drainage point between the source of the infected tooth and the oral cavity.

Will the swollen skin tag like gum above AND next to my erupting wisdom tooth go down? No pain, just swelling. Warm water&salt would help swelling?
Operculum: If the tag of tissue is covering the posterior part of your wisdom tooth, it is probably inflamed due to food/bacterial impaction or trauma from the maxillary tooth hitting it as you bite down. It may shrink away on its own, but in many cases a small excision does the trick. Try to clean it well and see your dentist if the problem continues. Wisdom teeth are often removed due to lack of space. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
