Weird tooth problem.
I had a tooth extraction about 8-9 days ago with sedation. I had literally, a spare tooth growing out of my upper gum on the right side. When the tooth was removed, it hurt a little bit but nothing major. I followed all of my Dentists advice.
However there is something I'm slightly unsure of. I think I still have some tooth left behind. I asked the dentist did he remove all of the tooth and he reassured me he had removed it all and showed me the tooth with the root attatched but I'm still unsure.
Above when I had the tooth removed, there is a very very solid lump which feels like a tooth. The lump is in my upper gum on the right side. Approximately 1cm above where the original tooth was extracted. I did phone my dentist last friday and I was told by the receptionist that its most likely swelling of the bone and it will reduce in a few days. But it hasn't reduced in size. Infact there has been no change whatsoever to the lump thing. When I rub my finger underneath the lump I can feel a sharp edge and Im 70% its a tooth coming through. This is how my original tooth formed....a lump that was rock hard for a few months then a tooth popped through.
But it is possible there could be another tooth coming through? How long does it take for bone swelling to go down? My mouth doesn't hurt at all anymore and I've showed my mum and she too thinks its a tooth coming through but it sounds silly, doesnt it?
Thanks in advance x
