There seems to be some pain in my mouth. It hurts. Its above my gums so i can t see it from the mirror. It s already there for more than 3 days. I think is because of the food i have eaten. But today its like theres a soft bump on top. It feels like its swollen.
Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
Impacted old food particles in the teeth or gums ultimately get infected bu oral flora in a day or two and cause swelling and pain. You will have to get the food particles removed and need antibiotics and pain killers to control it.
