6 year old, white bump near teeth, loose tooth. On antibiotics. Dental X-ray normal. Treatment?

My six year old daughter has a small, white bump above her two front teeth that is very painful. Her one tooth is also loose. About three weeks ago, she started complaining of pain. I took her to the dentist and an x-ray showed nothing. He still put her on a antibiotic. Unfortunately, she ended up in the emergency room with severe abdominal pain due to the med and we were directed to stop it. Now, we noticed this white bump appeared. I am worried.

Thank you for your query,
It looks like an abscess developed there with localization of pus.
If it is an abscess, it should be drained and antibiotic has to be started.
So consult your Pediatrician or a Pediatric dentist for the examination and proper treatment.
Hope I have answered your query.
