Puss bumps on upper gum
MY UPPER TEETH WERE EXTRACTED ABOUT 4 WEEKS AGO, BEFORE & SINCE THEN I HAVE THEM PUSS BUMPS, THOUGHT THEY WOULD GO AWAY AFTER ECTRACTIONS. WHAT IS THIS & WHAT CAN I DO TO CORRECT IT. PLEASE TELL ME THERE IS SOMETHING I CAN DO AT HOME. THEY DON`T STAY ALL OF THE TIME. PLEASE HELP
Thanks for your question. With any sign of an infection, you should schedule an appointment for an evaluation with the dentist that performed the extractions.
