Hi, thanks for asking your question. So you are saying that you have a white bump forming after you had an extraction? Dr Magida
Do you have gum disease in the area of the extraction?
Can you send any photos of the area?
You said it was a difficult extraction. The swelling was probably part of the healing process. The fact that it is down most probably means it won't comeback as the initial healing is over with. You might have gum disease elsewhere, but now that the tooth here is gone you won't have the disease in that area.
Do you have any other questions?
Was wondering if you had any further questions or thoughts? If not,would you mind rating my answer so i can get credit? Thanks again.
