Got it checked out. DDS says it's probably some type of bone trauma.
Ya, at this time, I'm not sure what it may be. It would be best to get it checked out just in case. It may not be related to the extraction and just coincidental that it showed up around the same time.
I just noticed it a few days ago. It is only on the one side over the front tooth.
And you just noticed it recently? Is there a bump on the other side as well? It could be a small tori or exostosis (extra bone) that you may not have noticed before. If its on the other side of the mouth like a mirror image, it may have been there for awhile and just not noticed until your recent extraction.
I thought that too at first...but it's just too far away. I can't imagine that it's an abscess because the tooth is doing fine. The gum feels weird because of the bump, but other than that it's ok. My nose on that side also is a little sore.
I would suggest going back to your dentist.
I was thinking it may be a bony spicule, which is a small part of the bone which may have been dislodged during the extraction and is beginning to be pushed out but since its not near the extraction socket, that makes it seem less likely.
