Hi, I have a horizontally impacted wisdom tooth that is partially errupted. I'm getting it removed in a little under two weeks.

From the tooth I feel some pressure and a little soreness in the jaw but not too bad. What's really bothering me is this spot that has erupted under the tooth between the 2nd and 3rd molar on the inside by my tounge. I can feel the spot with a fingernail and it feels hard like bone. In a photograph or in the mirror it looks like a white spot on the gums but you can't realy see the depth and hardness that I feel with my fingernail.

My oral surgeon said something about it being plaque and other stuff from the infection. I didn't quite get any kind of formal diagnosis on it and he didn't seem to address it as much as getting the wisdom tooth out.

Also the wisdom tooth is pushing into the 2nd molar and the tooth has a serious cavity. So far it's not bothering me but I'm afraid when the wisdom tooth is gone I will feel this cavity a lot more. I was told to goto my regular Dr. after 3 weeks to have the cavity looked at.

Does anyone have any idea what this might be? Also is this likely to get more severely infected in the next 2 weeks. Right now the pain is manageable and I have a business convergence next week.
