Dentist 's  Response

Thanks for writing to us.

Tiny bump appeared on the roof of mouth may be due to abscess deveoped as a result of periodontal infection or deep caries of the associated tooth.

I would suggest you to visit a dentist and get the abscess drained and curetted.

A thorough scaling as well as root canal treatment has to be done if required.

Take amoxycillin along with analgesics.

Hope this helps.
