Hi, is it possible for a lower tooth abscess to come out through the chin? The tooth is capped and the last time my dentist did anything with a capped tooth he broke it and the bone so I just got some Keflex from my doctor, it took two rounds of meds and left a rather large indent and scar on my chin. Thank you

  • Yes it is possible for the pus (which is formed due to any infection) to come out of the scar formed in your chin. I would suggest you to visit a dentist and get in professionally drained out. Else it might lead to further infection and for time being you can start with amoxicillin which will fight with the infection.
