Pages: 1 Showing 1 - 20 of 20 for hard painful lump gum. (0.141 seconds)


... I've just noticed while feeling around my lower gum a hard, white lump. ... (6 replies)
... As I press on the lump, I can feel a lot of pressure under the tooth that had the root canal. If I press hard the whole area is sore for a little while. ... (2 replies)
... It could be a boney Tori. Tori are extra bone that sometimes grows along your jaw. If it is, they are benign. They typically develop over a period of years. I have had two removed because they got very large and I had food catching between them and my gum. Try doing an internet search for more information to see if it matches your symptoms. (6 replies)

... I have a hard white 'bump' showing through the gum. ... (6 replies)
... That's how mine started, as a small hard lump. But the bigger it gets you can bet it's going to start to hurt. Mine was there for more than a week before it got real painful. ... (15 replies)
... to alarm you but it sounds like an abscess, or it could be a cyst. In any case, I'd get it checked out by a dentist soon. If it is an abscess, it could get very painful and you want to avoid that. Maybe someone else will have different ideas as to what could be causing this. Good luck! ... (15 replies)
... pain on the gums behind my two top front teeth. It almost feels like a piece of popcorn kernel stuck there. I looked in the mirror tonight, and noticed a red, hard bump on my gums. Its about half a centimeter, and it's dark red. It feels very hard and fixed to the gums, and is painful to touch. ... (1 replies)
Failed root canal?

... lump went away. A couple of weeks ago, the lump returned. ... (0 replies)
... It's appreciated :) My dentist had done panoamic (sp?) xray, I had several dozens of xrays in the last year because I'm also a TMJ sufferer, and when my dentist looked he didn't even suggest it was anything. It doesn't hurt, so no doubt it's nothing but a tori ;) (6 replies)
... I have the tooth grinding too. I have worn an occlusal guard for years. If it is a tori (torus) it is harmless. It is just extra bone that has grown where it isn't needed. I just ended up having mine removed because they had gotten so big over the years. If that is what you have, glad I could be of help. (6 replies)
... I think you may be right that this is what I have. I looked at some pictures. Mine isn't protruding, yet. It's consistent with my dental history of grinding my teeth too. Tori or Torus. I found a bunch of info, thank you so much :) (6 replies)
... Thank you for the suggestion Mountain. Was it bone that was through the gums? Mine is covered by a layer of skin, and is not really protruding/sticking out. It is a bit raised above the skin around it, but it's almost like a fingernail to a finger, if that makes sense. (6 replies)
Lump under gum
Jan 10, 2008
... I have a hard lump under my gum by a tooth I had some work done on. I went to my dentist and explained it's not painful and that its hard as a rock. She felt it and did a xray and she stated it's a abscess. ... (1 replies)
... it is located below the tooth that was next to the extraction site. The lump is sitting near the jawline, cheek area and deep down in the gum along the gum line. It is not painful unless hard pressure is applied. It measure approx 1. ... (1 replies)
... The chances of it being an infection are actually much higher. I doubt it could be cancer. I think if it doesn't go away in a few days I would ask your mom to take you to the denist. Sometimes the only thing you need is a course of antibiotics. Nancy (1 replies)
... That sounds like what mine looks like. Red gum tissue, with whitish yellow hard lump like a pea. Also how long did the surgery last, did u have iv sedation, and was it painful. Im dreading this... ... (10 replies)
