Customer Question
I have a lump...

I have a lump that I can feel inside my nose but it feels like it's coming from my broken tooth. Is this bad?

Doctor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I have a front tooth that had a filling that fell out. The tooth ended up breaking and some darkness is exposed. No pain but I feel a lump in my nose right on top of the tooth

Hello there,

It is common for an issue with a front tooth to feel as though the discomfort is in or around the nose. This is because the roots of the front teeth are under and just behind the nose. thus, when there is a problem with related discomfort with these teeth, it often feels just as you have described. It's likely that you have either inflammation of the nerve of the tooth or possibly infection at the periapical (tip of the root) area of your broken tooth, although it's not possible to determine with certainty without a clinical exam and xrays. It would be wise to have a dentist have a look. If you have an infection, it should be treated as soon as you can. The dentist may determine that antibiotics are necessary.

Please let me know if you need additional information to answer your question. Otherwise a positive rating would be appreciated.

Be well,

Dr Shernan

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!!
