A Lump Appears In The Gum After Impacted Dental Surgery?
it has been a week after the operation of the four wisdom teeth, with the general anesthesia and sewing. 2 days after now until the gums at the end of the four-four like a small lump. Is that normal because the stitches haven’t been removed? or that’s what is called an abscess ?, but the lump does not hurt and is too visible only felt when touched with the tongue.
Hello, boakwong Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Are complaints about the appearance of a lump at the extraction of the tooth accompanied by a discharge of blood or pus? Do you also experience other symptoms, such as fever or numbness in the tooth extraction area?
Unfortunately we cannot do a physical examination directly on your teeth due to limited access. Did not rule out the possibility that the lump was an inflammatory reaction that is common after tooth extraction. However, it is also possible if the lump is a blood clot or a marker of secondary infection that can lead to accumulation of pus into an abscess.
We recommend that you return your control to the dentist who handles the extraction of your teeth so that evaluation and treatment is needed. If it hurts, you can use over-the-counter pain relievers, such as paracetamol, at doses according to the rules of use listed on the drug packaging.
