Customer Question

I just came from the dentist. I have been having an area of roughness along my gum line, where a crown was put in 2014. At that time, I thought it was an area of cement that oozed out of the crown when it was inserted. I mentioned it, but nothing was spotted. My tongue is constantly rubbing the area. Today, the hygenist looked at it and took exrays. The area seems to be coming on the outside of my gums, also. My dentist is on vacation and will be back this weekend and will call me then. What do you think this is?

I have no exrays to show you.

I guess I can consider this a loss. It was stupid of me to fall for it.

Hello,
This is not a scam.
If you dont have x rays or photos, I will opt out so that another expert can venture to answer your question.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
