I have a bump on the right backside of the roof of my mouth. It is right next to the tooth that is farther back. It has pain when I brush my tongue over it. Also giving me a slight headache and earache. I recently went to the dentist for a cleaning, and they said my wisdom teeth were not even showing so what could this be?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I read your query, and it seems that the bump which is painful and which gives radiating pain to ear and head is because of your third molar and this tooth is infected as the food gets entrapped between the tooth and soft tissue covering that tooth. For this, avoid eating too hot or too cold. Wash out oral cavity after every meal with mouthwash and warm saline. Do not apply external heat to that area, especially keeping your hand on that area. Also, take antibiotic and painkiller. Antibiotic you can use is Amoxicillin and Clavulanic acid combination in 625 mg dosage bd. Painkiller can be Ultracet ((tramadol and acetaminophen) thrice a day.
