Hello doctor,

Recently, I have noticed two little white pimple-like dots next to my molar tooth on the cheek and there is no pain. I was wondering what it could be and if it is serious?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Is your lower wisdom tooth removed? It seems to be a mild epithelial injury which occurs during chewing at the corner of jaws where last wisdom teeth meet. No need to worry about it, as it usually will go away on its own in a week or two.

Use warm salt water gargle twice a day for a week or two and if need apply an antibiotic gel at the spot three or four times a day. If it does not go away, show to a dentist to check if the upper wisdom teeth are causing the problem and need to be removed.

Thank you doctor,

We are in lockdown due to corona and cannot go to see the dentist. My lower wisdom tooth was removed, but my upper one is still in place. Once I can leave the house according to your advice (if still exists) will see the doctor.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Yes, please do so. The upper wisdom tooth may be causing this injury and may have to be removed eventually as the lower wisdom tooth is already removed.
