Hi, i am a 21 year old feamle.
So a few days ago i woke up with my gums some what tender.
Specifically behind my front tooth, up top.
I do not have any cavities around that tooth or even on the ones next to it.
I do however have and always have had one of my adult teeth grow in behind my front tooth.
That is where the swelling first occurred, was between my front tooth and the one behind it.
It hurts and starts to bleed if i brush my teeth or mess with the gums in that area.
Today the swelling got pushed forward, and is now in front of my front tooth.
it looks as if it has formed into a bump.
Im not sure if this is an abscess tooth or not, i have had many of those in my life, but nothing involving a bump like this.
Ive been using Listerine to help when it bleeds and Aleve to help with the Swelling.
what do you think it is?
