hello and welcome to HCM forum ,
I would like you to know that whenever a tooth is associated with an abscess
, it needs to be drained, in order to release pressure due to pus accumulation.
I would like you to know that an infected tooth either needs to be extracted if the infection is extensive or re-root canal
therapy is required.
Antibiotics will be needed in your case along with anti-inflammatory medication for 5 -7 days as prescribed by your dentist
If abscessed tooth is left untreated it may cause swelling followed by cyst
formation which is extremely damaging to the oral tissues.
Kindly be informed that getting a tooth removed by a specialist( oral surgeon) does not carry any risk.
i wish you good health.
