I have painless lump on gums and a slightly loose tooth, no pain though, any ideas?

See your dentist: A chronic dental abscess may produce no pain with intermittent swelling, but can develop into an acute abscess at any point. The goal of any treatment is to remove the infection, save the tooth, and prevent further complications. See your dentist for evaluation and x-rays. ...Read more

I have noticed a hard painless lump on my inside gum after a tooth had a cavity and broke off... I'm going to the dentist today but I'm so terrified?

I have noticed a hard painless lump on my inside gum after a tooth had a cavity and broke off... I'm going to the dentist today but I'm so terrified?

Abscess? Tori?: My guess would be an abscess although it could be a number of other things. It could also be a torus which is merely some extra bone and a variant of normal anatomy. Whatever it is, even an infection it can be treated painlessly so there is no reason to be worried, let alone terrified. When was your last dental check-up and do you go regularly? ...Read more

Do I call dentist when lump on gums or doctor?

I just find out last night a hard lump grow on my upper gums the size of a 2 peas and it's painless...What it could be?

Uncertain...: Most hard lumps on the gums represent an extra growth of bone-- sometimes referred to as an "exostosis" or "torus". However, not all hard lumps are tori, and a conclusive diagnosis must take into account more than just texture or consistency. A formal professional assessment by your dentist will be required to settle the issue. ...Read more

Smaller than a bb sized firm lump under gums. Movable. No pain. Been there for months, with no change. Any ideas?

Smaller than a bb sized firm lump under gums. Movable. No pain. Been there for months, with no change. Any ideas?

Absolutely: See a dentist asap to find out what it is. If it's an infection which is quite possible, leaving it untreated may have caused more bone destruction than immediate treatment, and certainly exposes you to the risk of spread and very serious complications! ...Read more

Painless bumps: The painless bumps may be normal bone contours or exostosis which are a benign and a variant of normal bone anatomy. Urine is normally yellow but varies in color depending upon what you eat. See your dentist for dental questions and speak to your own physician regarding medical ones. Always best to be safe than sorry. ...Read more

Firm lump upper gum near molars. Can't see it but can feel. No pain or swelling anywhere else. Been there for 2 wks. Would abscess have head by now?

Firm lump upper gum near molars. Can't see it but can feel. No pain or swelling anywhere else. Been there for 2 wks. Would abscess have head by now?

See a dentist: No, an abscess may not have surfaced if it was due to a minimally invasive organism (s). You should get this looked at asap since you do not want whatever is causing this to extend beyond the area in which it is now located. That could be extremely severe and in some cases even life-threatening. ...Read more
