I have swelling in my gums between my back two molars on my left side, the swollen part has become a purple color. It's not extremely swollen but looks round and shiny like a tiny balloon. It is also not painful. The swelling started a week ago, but the purple color has happened in the past couple days. What could this be?
I already had my wisdom teeth pulled years ago, so I know that's not it. The earliest I could get an appointment at the dentist was 2 weeks from now, so I hope it doesn't get worse or hurt before the 2 weeks is up! I have been brushing and mouthwashing with ACT mouthwash 2x a day, and flossing once a day. It has not gotten any better.
