I got braces last year as there were spaces between my teeth. For the last 10 days, I noticed a nodule coming out behind the braces between canine and premolar on the left side of the mandible. It is painful only while brushing when the bristles rub against it.
Before this, around 10th July (after my consultation with orthodontist for braces), I had slight swelling in the same region associated with pain. Now due to lockdown, I am unable to consult for my next appointment. It started as painful swelling and now appears as a nodule which is pale-colored. I just want to know if I should take this nodule seriously.
