Hi
Have a painful wound that lasted for about a week now. Dentist have no openings and I am worried it may be cancer. Is there any reason for concern?

Good day

It still looks like a traumatic ulcer or an apthous ulcer. This can sometimes last up until 2 weeks. Have you tried any medications as yet? Kenalog in Orobase is a good medication to get over the counter and apply to the area.

Hi, thanks for the reply
Been using olive oil as mouth wash 20 min a day which helped a bit. I’ll purchase some remedy it does not heal within a few days.
it’s just odd how it seems to have caused an inflammation on the tooth.
