I have had an area of swelling of gum in area of tooth number 30, which is also a dental implant, no pain at all, for about 2 months, since covid epidemic and I had no pain, I decided to try to wait it out until dentist called me in for cleaning that was rescheduled do to the covid, I am able to chew, brush, floss, and have no pain or discomfort in area at all. A couple weeks ago started experiencing foul taste coming from area, called dentist, took me right in, he did x rays, he said implant looks perfect, no issues with implant and nothing abnormal showing up on xray. He numbed area and cleaned gum out, told me I had no plaque in the area of surrounding teeth at all, my last cleaning was last September, gave me rx of oral antibiotics and mouthwash, I finished the oral, still using the mouth rinse. I went back for follow up last week, no change in gum, and he did panoramic x rays, no abnormalities showed up, had a dental cleaning, I take very good care of my teeth, no dental issues at all. He referred me to oral surgeon for gum biopsy, I am petrified, does this procedure hurt during or afterwards?
