    I have this abscess and this kinda pain I wouldn’t want on my worst enemy. However what this dentist forgot to mention is the fact that most dental offices do drain of abscess.

  2. I had a tooth abscess as a result of trauma caused by a dentist grinding a tooth down prior to fitting a crown-he fitted a crown to this healthy tooth,supposedly to ‘protect’ it from the opposing tooth which was crowned…this dentist killed a healthy tooth just to profit from the procedure and I now suffer from secondary neurological symptoms-dizziness,fatigue,etc,as a result of bacteria still in my jawbone,left after the dead tooth was extracted…beware of unethical dentistry!

  3. Or you could fly all the way to England, see a dentist on the NHS, pay a mere £40 for a RCT( regardless of type of tooth), will at most take 30mins( rubberdam is extra),( incidentally,hairderessers here will charge you more for a hair cut), and you will have alot of money left to enjoy your stay in England, and on your return back home, there is a good chance that you will need an extraction!

  4. You can find cheap dentist who will perform a root canal for $500-600. You just have to ask around or go to ghetto areas in your town. The key thing is that you get it treated ASAP (both antibiotics and root canal to clear the tooth and canals of the infection and to seal the opening)

  5. wait for the dentist take some ibuprofen if you dont have asthma and rinse your mouth with WARM salt water it will help it to pop on its own but it will drain for hours and smell and taste horrible thats why I said to wait for the dentist

  6. hey alot of dentist will work with you dont just let it go and be thankful for the pain cause it will hurt and one point to where you just want to scream I was rushed to the hospital by ambulance after letting it go for months becuase I started to go into septic shock from the infection mine just popped a few hours ago and i go to an oral surgeon in a few hours so get it taken care of
