Pimple on my gum

Hello everyone:

I had a pimple on my gum that had pus, I went to the Endodontis and he did surgery to get the infection out , that was in April 2009.
Now the pimple has returned. I went back and he looked at it and did an xray and gave me antibodics to take . He said if it does not go away, to make an appointment again.

Has anyone experienced this before?? And what made it go away?

Re: Pimple on my gum

It sounds like another infection in the gum. The antibiotics should resolve it, but if not, go back to your dentist.

Re: Pimple on my gum

I had a similar problem not long ago when a tooth had to be pulled and the gum was operated on to release it. Right away I noticed a little pimple on the gum. So, what I did was, I used my Arm & Hammer hydrogen peroxide toothpaste, and I rubbed it on that place with my finger, pushing firmly on the pimple and all around it. Of course I also flossed the nearby teeth and rinsed real good, the whole nine yards. Did this for a couple days, and the pimple went away. Hope this works for you!

Re: Pimple on my gum

a pimple on the gums= infection. It is an infection that is draining through your gums from the tooth.
