Does anyone know what this lump is in the corner of my mouth? As you can see it is just above my wisdom tooth which appears to be growing out of line, so I wonder if it's been caused by it rubbing against this area, or possible infection?

From reading various sources online I'm not sure if it's periodontitis, as this seems to be exclusively on the gums and not the cheek?

I am seeing the dentist in a week and the experienced receptionist assures me this is pretty common due to an impacted wisdom tooth. Please can a dentist provide me some reassurance?
