A lump above the upper gum

Good afternoon, I have been under braces treatment for 2.5 years, today I had to go to the orthodontist and yesterday I felt a hard ball like a bone (I thought it was a tooth inside) when you press it hurts a little, I went to the orthodontist, they adjusted the braces and made a panoramic picture. The doctor said that she sees nothing there, and I asked if it is cancer and so on, she said that she does not see anything like that and wrote down for the next month to tighten the braces and if the ball remains to make a picture of the exact part where the ball, tell me whether to be alarmed now or I as always in vain panic?

Doctor's answer: Hello, I would recommend you to have a CT scan of the jaws, it will be more informative.

My tooth (lower right) does not hurt, but it hurts when pressing on my chin, also when opening my mouth and at night

Hi. No pain in the tooth when chewing, but it hurts quite a bit when pressing on the area on my chin on the right side below the tooth. It also hurts to open my mouth wide, but then the pain is felt below the area on my chin that hurts when I press on it - in the lower part of my jaw on the right side. Besides, this whole area hurts for a couple of hours at night, but not all night - sometimes before going to bed, then it is difficult to sleep because of the pain, and sometimes it can hurt in the middle of the night, at three o'clock. And during the day it is almost constantly very unpleasant sensations on the verge of pain. Probably this is due to the fact that a couple weeks ago the tooth began to react very strongly to temperature influences - even if the food or drink was even a little warm or cool, the pain was really strong. Then it went away. The point on my chin didn't hurt at that time, my mouth opened without pain, and I had no problems with "room" temperature food and drinks. What to do? Is it a tooth after all or is it no longer a tooth but something on its root or just on the jaw?

Doctor's answer: Good afternoon! You need to visit a dentist immediately for root canal treatment of this tooth. Pain when pressing in the projection of the tooth root indicates an exacerbation of the inflammatory process in the periapical tissues (tissues surrounding the tooth root). After removing the necrotic nerve from the root canals, all discomfort will disappear.
