Why is there a white blister on my lower gum?
Blisters on gums may be due to several reasons:
- virutic infection (recurs when the immune system is down). Heals within 10 days.
- abscesses originating from either root canal and/or gums. It generally starts with pain, and pain is reduced if it is draining.
- trauma to gums.
You should visit a dentist to figure out why you are getting the blister.
