Thank you for the suggestion. BTW, Here is another insight that I noticed:

As I inspected the snorkel mouthpiece which I often use to free dive to catch the lobster, I realized that this new one I bought for the season has a different shape than the one I used before. It has wider, deeper shape and thicker plastic to bite as if it may have contributed the irritation to the wisdom tooth.

I realize that this is just a speculation at this time, but since I free dived frequently with this new mouthpiece and that the timing and my experience indicate that this could well be the cause, I thought I would post this insight here anyway.

Thanks for sharing with me the suggestion,
