Last night the side of my mouth was swollen now this morning I woke up I have a bump under my tongue that hurts can you tell me what it is?
JA: Have you noticed any recent swelling? Do you have any tooth pain?
Customer: No but my whole mouth hurts
JA: Please give me a bit more information, so the dentist can help you best.
Customer: OK both sides of my mouth hurts. When I lift my tongue I can barely lift it it look like a bump that can be popped but I don't want to touch it because I don't know what it is
