Gum Diseases

White Blister

11/12/2010

Question:

Why is there a white blister on my lower gum?

Answer:

Blisters on gums may be due to several reasons:

- virutic infection (recurs when the immune system is down).  Heals within 10 days.

- abscesses originating from either root canal and/or gums.  It generally starts with pain, and pain is reduced if it is draining.

- trauma to gums.

You should visit a dentist to figure out why you are getting the blister.
