Sir 8 yrs back i have a root cannal on the front tooth. A yr back i found a pimple above the root cannal teeth and a hard bump. I got the root cannal done again now the pimple is gone but the bump is as it is. It doesnt pain but the bump is there. Should i worry about it

  • Don't worry.Bony enlargement around the periapical region of a tooth is noted after chronic infection. Once the tooth is treated with root canal treatment, the bony enlargement gradually subsides over the years. Though the bony bump does not regress, usualy it is harmless.Do warm saline rinses 3-4 times a day.Maintain good oral hygiene by proper brushing and regular use of mouthwash.
