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. My concern is I have been on antibiotics for 10 days and the lump is still hard as a rock and the same size. Can a abscess stay the same size even after antibiotics are taken or may it be something else?
