I have a boil on the roof of my upper inside gumline.Do I need to see a dentist,or my regular physician? Could tis be a sign of periodontal disease? Thanks
Any sore or bump should go away in 7-10 days. If it does not, I would recommend seeing a dentist. It could be a sign of periodontal disease or some other condition.
