I am undergoing RCT for 3 teeths.A pimple was observed on the upper pallet of mouth n dentist mentioned that it is a mucus and will go on its own..With time it is becoming smaller but has not gone completely. Is it a reason to worry?

Hi, don't worry. As you are saying it's reducing means it's healing and infection is subsiding. Body's natural defence take some time to heal infections. After RCT when teeth canals are completely cleaned and filled, it will completely regress. Take care.
By ur description I understand that it was a sinus tract which means a small pus draining canal. It forms as a result of infection within the bone due to tooth decay that gradually drains from the bone to outside. It usually resolves after Root canal treatment. As infection subsides, it gradually vanishes off. So do not worry abt it. Follow ur Doctor's instructions carefully.
It is best to take a cbct xray to determine extra nerves in a tooth which is not allowing your case to heal.most root canals we finish in 1-3 days time.
Your case needs immediate attention .
You.may also be having a lesion, cyst inside the bone.

The description of the lesion ( pimple) cannot lead to a proper diagnosis.. Have to have to look to comment.
