soft tissue damage tooth left in gum

Over the years I have had a couple of abcesses by the same molar in my upper jaw both times I got anitbiotics and the dentist said it was prob due to sinus infection. This week I started to get the stabbing pain so I went the dental hospital they said there is a tiny hole of soft tissue (its been there since my baby tooth was extracted as a kid) in between two molars one of the molars he said is grown twisted not like you usually see?, they xrayed it and in between the two teeth in the gum there was like a whitish fragment, they said it looks like a root from an adult tooth (I havent had any removed) or a piece off baby tooth left in (I did have one removed from there) or piece of dead bone, they said they need to cut the gum and see what it is and drill it out? They also said there is soft tissue damage would the previous abcesses have caused this I am worried what this could be? I was told to take painkillers and wait for an appointment to remove the piece, my gum has since swelled and throbs like an abcess is there I am getting antibiotics tomorrow so that should hopefully sort that until my appointment, jus want to know does this sound normal I am worried I never heard of soft tissue damage?
