Growing molars, pain in gums. Abscess on hard palate. Infection?

Hi there,my two upper third molars have been growing and i felt pain on the whole stretch of gum and perhaps affecting my right lateral incisor.It has been 10 days since i ignored the tingling pain on my right lateral incisor and gum thinking it to be normal wisdom tooth growth.However,yesterday,there has been an abscess on my hard palate and on my own inspection there was slight cavity.Could it possibly be an infection needing root canal treatment? Is there any cure to soothe the abscess without extraction? Please advise.

Hello ;
Thanx for asking the question,
Every infection can not be treated with root canal . in your case your wisdom teeth is erupted if it is tilted in any side then you go for the extraction of wisdom teeth .for the abscess you meet your dentist and derange it as soon as possible and take proper antibiotics .
