Customer Question

Thank you for having this online service. How wonderful. Fri nite my upper tooth on my right side 2nd from the end started aching. I took advil. and tried to call my dentist but they were closed. Yesterday it also hurt especially eating or just touching the upper tooth with the lower tooth. All of a sudden tonite I could start eating again without the pain but now I see I have a like a whitish blue/black looks like a little piece of fat hanging over the tooth from my gums. So it's attached to my upper gums. Do you have any idea what this could be. Just for perspective --unfortunately I have stage 4 breast cancer which is currently controlled. thank you cindy

That's ok I'll call the dentist tomorrow. I'm hoping it's maybe just an infection of some kind. thanks anyway cindy
