Hi, I have this swelling (feels like a ball) in my gum right hand side at the top. Its above the teeth and closer to my cheek bone. I get no pain but when I push it I feel pressure going down inbetween two teeth. My Dentist has checked it out and felt it. I insisted on an X-ray to which he did eventually as I thought it was another abscess (I previously had a root canal in this area because of that reason). He explained that the root looked ok and said it was NOT an abscess and then we moved on. Im confused as to what it actually is. I got the impression he felt the x-ray was a waste of time but I have had this lump for months now. Has anyone had this before?
