Does anyone know what this is? I'm a rather penniless college student and I would like to know what I'm getting into before I go panicking about it:

It hasn't turned red yet, so that's the only thing keeping me sane. It hardly hurts, but something tells me it's gonna keep getting bigger.

  • It's not far back enough to be Wisdom Teeth, but it could be an infection from that. I've not had any removed.

  • My guess would be an abcess. You need to see a dentist for an X-ray and possible anitbiotics.

  • Nice teeth! Looks like it could be an abcess. You will probably need antibiotics. Better to go to the dentist now though before it gets worse. Good Luck!

  • Gum or tooth abscess. Between your 1st and 2nd molar not wisdom tooth. See dentist.
