is this abscessed tooth?

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: amiieey  (9 years ago)
I have a bump above my gum. It has suddenly appeared today. The tooth is not painful, but the bump above it is a little painful when pressed. It is too far back in my mouth, above my farthest tooth in the back (not wisdom tooth). I have had fillings in this tooth before but never a root canal. Funny, because this happened before once and the dentist simply filled the tooth in. Now it is happening again. There is never a toothache accompanying it. It does not smell funny and I am not sure what it is.
there is seemingly no swelling on cheek or anywhere either so i am not sure what it is really. help?

Impossible to say without an x-ray. People get boney protuberances that are hard to the touch, but these occur over a period of years, and not quickly.
