Q: I got a lump on my gums from an injury I sustained five days ago. How long will it be before it goes down? How do I make it go down faster?
A: What kind of injury did you have? Did you have an x ray taken and an exam by a dentist? It is impossible to diagnose the lump on this forum. You should be seen immediately and make sure that the teeth, bone, and other vital structures are not damaged.
