Photo not very clear, i suggest you see another dentist because it could be tooth related and you need some tests done and xrays taken to rule that out. Do you remember if your dentist took xrays or did any tests like bang on your teeth or cold test? Also have you had any episodes of pain with any of the teeth in that region? Any pain when you bite hard on any of the teeth near the lesion?
Hi, no my dentist didn’t take any X-rays of the affected area. When I brought up the issue he didn’t seem concerned at all. No X-rays or any other tests on the tooth below or on the surrounding ones. I have had some mild pain on the tooth below it (on and off kind of pain) but beside that no other pain at the moment.
