What Is the Bump on My Gum?

Answer

Having a big bump on your gum might mean that you have an abscessed tooth and the reason that it is not hurting is because the infection has a way to drain into the bump so that it is not building up pressure. If your tooth is infected then you will need to be put on antibiotics and have a root canal done to remove the infected nerve. It is recommended you see the dentist as soon as you can because if you do have an infection it might lead to loss of your teeth.
