Customer Question

I have a dark red bump on my gums (bottom gums, right where the wisdom teeth should be)
JA: Are you experiencing any swelling? Do your gums bleed when you brush or floss?
Customer: my face has been a bit swollen on this side for the past 8 months or so and my gums do bleed (on both sides) when i floss, but only in the back
JA: Please give me a bit more information, so the dentist can help you best.
Customer: What other information do you need? I can upload pictures if that helps
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Dentist about your situation and then connect you two.
