I have a bump on the inside of my mouth below my gums and it look like it has white puss in it what could it be?
It sounds like you may have an abscessed tooth. In dental terms a pimple like bump below the gum area that has puss excreting from it is called a fistula. Most of the times people have no idea their tooth is infected because the infection is draining in the mouth and there is little or no pain coming from the tooth. Most teeth that get infected have pain upon chewing, ache on their own, or are sensitive to temperature because the infection stays at the base of the root of the tooth and not draining into the mouth which causes a toothache. If the tooth is truly infected, antibiotics will be prescribed and it will require a root canal and dental crown. We advise you to consult with your dentist to see if your tooth is indeed infected or if it’s some other condition.
