I had root canal be for three years back and had cap on my molar jaw but from last 3 or 4 month there is a ulcer on the same gum of molar jaw, its not permanent sometime it becomes bigger sometime again smaller and I also do not feel any pain there. Please tell that is it a serious problem? Or can this harm
My tooth? Suggest me what to do.
Looks like you have a abscess with that tooth. Kindly visit a dentist who will take a x ray and suggest an appropriate treatment. You may have to get the root canal re done if there is infection with that tooth.
