I am waiting to see a special needs oral surgeon as my oral surgeon tells me I am too phobic to work on..
In the meantime my #2 molar (not a wisdom) has broken off at the gumline and is black with decay. (has been for about 2 years).
Today I noticed a small red dot on the inside of the tooth area near the gumline. It sometimes tastes mildly like blood;
About 3 days ago this recent Oral Surgeon gave me three injections when he attempted to extract this tooth; he injected the tooth and also the of my mouth. After he did, I panicked (cried and trembled), and that is when he told me to find a special needs surgeon.
My question is..... what could this red blood dot *possibly* be?
Could it be from the injection?
Or sound like something else?
I am terrified of my abscess coming back. I was on 20 days worth of Amoxicillin in November and it made me violently ill. While the tooth isn't giving off a foul taste or swelling like it did when it was abscessed, it is still irritated...but that's nothing new.... except this red dot..... please help me shed some light on this so I stop panicking until I see my new oral surgeon??
