Last Tuesday when I was cleaning my teeth I thought I was cleaning too hard and a lump came up on the outside gum.

I have put my tongue there and it is still there. I had been hoping that after 4 days it would have subsided.

Would anybody know how long I should wait to go back to my dentist.

If its an abscess then straightaway. You may need antibiotics.

I don't think it is an abscess as it is quite painless.
No big deal.
Probably a submucosal haematoma ( clumsy brushing) and will go away.

have an appointment with dentist private - the lump has gotten hard and uncomfortable so I'm hoping he doesn't have to drain it or anything. Just would like it to go it away on its own. But I do have dreadful gum disease.
