hi and welcome,

Bacterial decay or carious process to the tooth leads to infection and formation of abscess .

Tooth abscess can be a periapical abscess or lateral periodontal abscess that drains in the surrounding periodontal tissue.

Periodontal abscess leads to severe pain in the jaws which often radiate to the adjacent structures like ear , head and neck.

It shows symptoms of fever , nausea and vomiting due to the bacterial infection .

i would suggest you to visit a dentist and get the clinical examination and X RAYS done accordingly the abscess is drained and the tooth is treated by root canal procedure.

meantime you can start with Augmentin 625mg with analgesics with paracetamol which helps in subsiding pain , swelling and fever.

i hope this helps,

take care.

dear friend.

thanks for sharing your concern.

abscess is an infection consisting of loads of bacteria,pus and cause swelling,redness,pus,pain,raised body temperature etc.

your doctor has prescribed antibiotics to reduce this infection.
now the general principle of any abscess is that it should be drained first,followed by antibiotics.

i would suggest you to see your dentist as soon as possible.please do not be apprehensive about dental treatment.

now a days painless dental treatment is done by using an anesthetic.

therefore just visit your dentist and get an x ray done,after that your abscess can be drained well and the affected tooth can be saved by RCT.

meanwhile take your medicines properly without any gaps,and follow very good oral hygiene.

hope it helps

As you have mentioned,

The dacay in your teeth has spread into periapical region,resulting in abscess formation.

The pain may be experienced initially,which you may not have noticed.
Nothing to be panic regarding dentist's visit.

Please get treatment soon for the abscessed teeth ,or else it can lead into sinus infection.

The involved teeth has to be either root canal treated or extracted depending on clinical and x-ray examination.
All the procedures are carried out under administration of local anaesthesia.
So it won't be painful.

Drainage and curettage has to be carried out.

Take complete course of antibiotics-analgesics prescribed .

Abscess is collection of pus.So,if there is pus any where in the body,there will be fever.
Sometimes,it will not be subsided with medicines.It has to be drained.
So,please consult Dentist and get it drained.
It is a simple procedure
Nothing to worry
Wish you good health
