Thanks for posting your query.
The lump may be arised from periapical infection of chipped tooth.
Get clinical as well as x-ray examination of tooth.
The pus has to be drained out through access opening or curettage.
If tooth is shaking,bone grafting/splinting has to be done.
Take antibiotics -analgesics after consulting with your dentist.
The painful lump will disappear,once the pus drains out.
Crown has to be placed to strengthen tooth after root canal treatment.
Hope this helps.

Thanks for asking the query,

Lump at the roof of the mouth can be due to abscess arissing from the broken tooth.
I would suggest you to visit Dentist and get the clinical evaluation done, take an x-ray of the tooth.

Drainage of abscess is required, Get the root canal treatment completed for the tooth.
Go for complete mouth scaling and polishing and curettage.

Take complete course of antibiotics and analgesics.
Maintain a good oral hygiene, take lukewarm saline and antiseptic mouthwash gargles twice daily.

Hope this helps out.

Dentist Dr. Benley George's  Response
The history you have provided shows that you had a trauma to your front teeth. The trauma has affected the pulp of your tooth which resulted in an abscess / cyst formation. You should consult a dentist immediately. An x ray will reveal if it is a cyst or abscess. If it an abscess an incision and drainage of the abscess is required. Then Root canal treatment and capping of the tooth should be done. If it is a cyst root canal treatment followed by cyst enucleation should be done.
Consult your dentist immediately.
