Noticed swelling on my gum, a bit of discomfort if I touch it with my tongue or press down on it. I have an appointment just wondering if it can wait or needs an emergency appointment.
(I’m 23 non smoker/drinker.)
Thanks

Good day
Difficult to say without an x-ray, but might be a wisdom tooth giving trouble.Would need to take an x-ray to be sure.
