perhaps it could be a gumboil.A gumboil is usually caused by an abscess at the root of the tooth. Often, this abscess is caused by food caught in pockets at the gumline. The infection forms at the root, and then eats away at the gum tissue, eventually creating a channel that leads to the gum surface. Once the channel reaches the gum surface, it appears to be a pimple or raised, white growth. Gumboils often (though not always) hurt, and sometimes the tooth feels raised or displaced. Gumboils should always be attended to by a dentist, because even drainage and an easing of symptoms doesn't mean the problem is solved, as the infection usually remains at the root of the tooth. If untreated in the long term, gumboils can cause tooth and even bone loss, as the infection dissolves the bone surrounding the root of the tooth.cure:Standard treatment of a tooth abscess is to drain pus and then disinfect and fill tooth, or remove tip of root (an apicectomy) if it cannot be disinfected, or take the tooth out.
Specific remedies to be taken every hour for up to 10 doses while waiting for dental treatment
a.. Copious saliva, spongy gums Mercurius 30c
b.. First hint of an abscess, tooth and surrounding gum feel hot, mouth dry Belladonna 30c
c.. Gumboil well developed and very painful, pain aggravated by both hot and cold things in mouth Silicea 30c
d.. Gumboils starts to discharge pus Gunpowder 30c
Self-help: Wash mouth every 4 hours with a solution of Hypericum and Calendula (5 drops of mother tincture of each to 0.25 litre [1/2 pint warm water)
Thank you for the advice, so tomorrow I should call dentist and set appointment asap? And would you like me to upload a photo to perhaps get a better idea of what I am talking about?
