Dentist 's  Response
hello and welcome to HCM forum,
i would like to inform you that a lump or a swelling adjacent to a tooth occurs as a result of infection.
Infection may occur following tooth decay or a periodontal problem, in order to diagnose the exact cause a thorough dental check up is advised, kindly visit a dentist soon to avoid swelling from spreading to the adjacent tissues.
Thermagel will only relief tooth sensitivity, it does not act on infections,therefore kindly see a dentist.
i hope i answered your dental query,
i wish you good health.

Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.

Continue using therma gel, apply with light hand, it will contour itself.

I suggest you to consult an dentist nearby for a detailed examination. You may get the X-ray of the area affected under his/her guidance.

Hope I have answered your query.

Wishing you good health.
Regards.
