  • You should fix an emergency appointment with the dentist as there are chances of infection due to abscessed tooth. An abscessed tooth is a tooth that has a pocket of pus in the underlying tissues next to it. Pus forms when the body tries to fight a bacterial infection. If the pus cannot drain, it forms an abscess .

    For time being you can take amoxicillin twice daily and do warm saline gargles. Maitain a proper oral hygiene and use mouthwash at least twice daily....For more info visit the link....http://www.identalhub.com/articlecategory-gum-diseases-9.aspx
