How do I treat a sore in the cheek near the wisdom teeth?

I have bump on my lower cheek in the back where my wisdom teeth are that seems to be a canker sore (the white part of the bump seems to be pushed in) but I'm not sure, I hurts to laugh or even chew sometimes. Is this a canker sore and if so how do I treat it?

Hi,

Thanks for asking the query,

Canker sore occurs due to physical or chemical trauma.
Apply Dologel oral ointment topically over it.
At home take lukewarm saline and antiseptic mouthwash rinses.
If your wisdom tooth is impacted or tilted or causing any trouble i would suggest you to get a checkup done by a Oral Surgeon and plan for its removal.

Take care!
