my mum has a bridge of 4 teeth on the upper front. she has developed a abcess above one of the teeth and the dentist is to remove the tooth by cutting the bridge. she is very upset about this, is it really necessary to remove the tooth to treat the abcess.

  • You can ask for medications to get rid of dental abscess as doing a course of amoxicillin can treat abscess but if the abscess is severe than extracting a tooth is the last way out. Your dentist might have looked at the complete case before suggesting your mother to go for extraction. So stay calm as extraction will treat the abscess...For more info on abscessed tooth visit the link...
