Child with a beige-colored lump on the gum line. Had severe bleeding post hitting the mouth. Preventive measures?

my 2yr old has a lump on his gumline and its a beige colored lump above his front tooth . Not sure what it could be from. He has hit his mouth about year ago and was bleeding really bad. Took him to the dentist and his tooth was loose but it was ok. They told to look out for like a pimple bove his tooth that it could get abcessed.

Looks like that is an abscess developing.. I would suggest you to get a Xray done and then put him on antibiotics.the dentist might advise then get a Pulpectomy done for the tooth if required..
Thanks and regards
