Red bump on gum
Hi, all, first post here >.>
Anyways, about six years back I had a root canal done on one of my teeth-- one of the ones in the back, second or third from the end, on top. They really went all-out on this one-- put in a post and a big metal tooth now replacing it.
In the past couple days, I just noticed a bump on the front of the gum right above it. It doesn't hurt unless I press on it, but it feels kinda soft and squishy.
Any ideas what it could be?
I expect I'll probably have problems getting it treated too, since for some odd reason I have a dental phobia-- which really confuses me, since I didn't have one when I was younger. Basically they're able to get the Novocaine needles in just fine, but when the dentist leans over me with a drill, I just tense up and freak out and the dentist can't get any work done. Oddly enough this is not a problem for having my teeth cleaned O_o
