I have porcelain crowns on all of my top teeth & have had trouble with my upper right canine tooth since they were first put on approx. 3 yrs ago. It has loosened & needed to be glued many times. There's a deep pocket between that tooth & the next one toward the back & I've had a hard, very painful bump above these teeth on the gum for almost 8 months. The canine tooth is very sensitive to any pressure also. My dentist cut open the gum & scraped it a few months ago & it was ok for a while but now it's worse than ever. She has taken x-rays & they show nothing. When I press on the bump it will bleed sometimes but never any pus. Any ideas on what I should do? I'm thinking I should see an oral surgeon?
Please let me know if you find anything out at ***@****, Funny thing is I had the same work and the bump is in the same spot you described. I dont think its a bone, Mine is tender and sore but yet soft. Almost feels like the size of a marble stuck in there. I had my work done about 7 years ago and this just came about last week.
