Re: Lump on lower left gum.(Nerves).
Hi. I'm sorry to hear that you are going through this. From what I've read and what I'm going through right now, it sounds as though you have an abcess. I would get an opinion from another dentist. An abcess can give you swelling in your face and neck (glands), a funny taste in your mouth, etc. It is usually treated by lancing, antibiotics and a root canal. It's very important to get on antibiotics as soon as possible. I recently had a root canal which has abcessed and it's very painful. I have a blister on my gum and swelling on that side of my face and neck. My dentist put me on antibiotics and is planning on re-opening the tooth to clean the infection out next week. From research I've done on the web, your symptoms sound like an abcess which can happen after dental work. Good luck and God bless!!
