I have an upper wisdom tooth coming through not sure if this is related but I have a very hard painful lump on the inside of my cheek very painful to touch any ideas what this could be? Seems to be a white mark on it. I’m very worried and won’t be able to see a dentist until after the bank holiday now

Good day

Could be trauma related. Sometimes when a wisdom tooth erupts, it could scratch the inside of the cheek due to a sharp edge or inclination of the tooth. Sometimes you even bite your cheek in that area without knowing it. Keep an eye on the area. Rinse with salt water or chlorhexidine mouth rinse, and if no improvement in 14 days, go to the dentist for an examination.

Thank you for replying I will try the salt water rinse
