abscess in virgin tooth?
I've had dental abscesses before - one required tooth extraction, the other, root canal. I have now noticed a white "pimple" on my gum next to a virgin tooth, i.e., a tooth that has never had a cavity or filling. Something similar occurred several years ago and was found by my dentist's assistant. When the dentist examined it, he told her that it couldn't be an abscess because it was a virgin tooth. My question is, can an abscess develop at a virgin tooth? Or, could this be inflammation caused by something else, maybe too vigorous brushing? This is the last molar on the top left side (is that a wisdom tooth?)?

Thanks.
