About 2 weeks ago, with no known reason to me, I woke up and the roof of my mouth, centered, but more towards behind my right front tooth, it was sore. Later that day, it felt swollen. The next morning, I was shocked to be in pain. When I looked, I swear it looked as though I'd begun to grow a fang out of the roof of my outh AND, distressingly, my front right tooth seemed a tad loose! I sterilized a needle and pooped whatever it was and then used oragel to ease the pain. Within the next 2 days, it was gone and my tooth was no longer loose. Was that some sort of Abcess...or could I possibly have burned the roof of my mouth without realizing it? The latter seems impossible, since I've burned the roof of my mouth by accident in the past and ALWAYS felt it immediately. I am concerned and confused. Please help me with this dilemma? Thanks for your time and consideration.View Thread
