“What does a gum abscess look like?”
I am a 23 year old male. I want to know what does a gum abscess look like?
Dr. Steven M. Parrett Dentist Chambersburg, PA
Like a boil or pea-sized, yellow fluid-filled sac on the gum near the root of the tooth. But many times, you may not even see it.
Dr. Don Bigelow Dentist Salt Lake City, UT
It can look like a small pimple or swelling on the gums, that is sometimes painful.
Dr. Max Kerr Dentist Cedar Park, TX
It looks kinda like a pimple or it may not be visible to the eye.
Dr. Jay H. Sher Dentist Livingston, NJ
A gum abscess looks like a swelling that is often red and it is telling you to call your dentist right away.
Dr. Robert Gittelman Dentist Marietta, GA
Very often like a big pimple or swelling.
Dr. Gwen Giannina Dentist Bayonne, NJ
A typical "gum abcess" presents with inflamed or "puffy" gums, pain and bleeding. Brush and floss area thoroughly and see your general dentist for evaluation.
Dr. Mark Rosenstein Dentist Larchmont, NY
An abscess usually looks like a raised blister. It can also have what appears to be a white head on it with or without pus
Dr. Mehrdad Mostafaeipour Dentist Las Vegas, NV
Gum tissue that is red and swollen and it may bleed when you brush. Pus may ooze out of it if you press it. May or may not be painful,
