As far as I know, the tooth is healthy. No sign of decay. The "parulis" looks like a pimple on her gum. I could it be something else?
There is no sign of decay on any of her teeth, including where the parulis is. It is red and puffy, but there is no drainage. Our dentist could not express anything either. He wanted to wait and see if it went away within 2 weeks, but it is still there after a week and a half, unchanged.
Also, her tooth is not loose.
