got tooth pain (sudden sharp pain) two months ago and got my teeth scaled but the tooth ache returned and noticed a tiny bump that is not so visible but can be felt with my tongue the pain came from that area ( the arrow mark ) , slowly another line of bump started appearing ( the line ) the gum at those areas is softer than normal.
Went to a dentist who then prescribed gum paint and see if it heals, but it doesn't seem to should i be worried?

I am not familiar with the term '' gum paint '' however, during a scaling, calculus comes off from the tooth surface. Beneath those areas of calculus, the enamel sometimes becomes demineralized, and can then chip or cave in, forming an area you can feel with the tongue. Sometimes these areas, if big enough, require fillings.
However,the photo is not clear and it could also be cingulum protrusions on the specific teeth, which is a normal enamel formation.
