Hello doctor,

When I press the area on my face under my right nostril, I get a pressure on my upper gum inside my mouth which hurts real bad. When I do not press on it, my right front tooth hurts, like a toothache or pressure.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • You might have an abscess or a cyst.
  • You need to see a dentist for a visual and physical examination.
  • It needs to be ascertained whether there is any cavity or an abscess related to any front teeth using an X-ray as soon as possible.
