Hello, first off I want to thank any professionals or others with experience that may help here.
A little history on what is going on
In mid november I had some dentistry work done (cleaning, and cavaties filled to be more specific) within about two weeks of the work, a filling came out. my dentist office booked me in 3 days later to get it re-filled.
The day after it fell out, my gum began getting sore over the tooth where the filling came out. There was nothing visible on the gum line, it was almost directly over my left canine tooth or a little between the canine and the next tooth over (i am attaching some photos below)
The gum area was really, really painful to the touch but the dentist re-did the filling a few days later and said he didn't see anything on xray and that he thought at the time it was a sinus issue of some sort.
a few days later then pain goes away, he tapped on my teeth etc and they were not really sore or painful or anything. I've noticed no sensitivy to hot, cold, etc.
About two weeks after the pain goes away a big bubble forms over the same spot. no pain, just a big bubble , it's not white or canker sore-ish. closest thing i could equate it to would be if you got a blister on your feet from rubbing too much, except it's on my upper gumline area
I went back to the dentist the same day. He says he thinks it is nothing just some irritation from the dental work, he sees no sign of infection for abcessed etc. the bubble goes away in about 5-6 days time (without bursting, it just.. went down)
fast forward almost a month later to today. in the exact same spot all the pain took place , then the giant bubble, I now have this small white dot that almost to my tongue kind of feels like a pimple white head or something. No pain or anything but is definitely freaking me out. any thoughts/advice GREATLY appreciated as I'm sitting here fearing oral cancer.
I also wanted to add that I am 29 years old, white male, non smoker all my life, rare alcohol user (4-5 times per year) and no history of major family medical issues, at least not orally, that I'm aware of.
small update.. the dot kept getting a little whiter. i tried squeezing it a very light bit and i didnt see anything come out but the white is now gone and its got a little blood coming out (not much just a few dots worth)
Is it possible to get a pimple in the mouth above the gum line?
