Brief Answer: Go for Root Canal Treatment or Extraction Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXX Thanks for writing in. Your symptoms suggest you are having abscess in tooth. You need to get x-ray of teeth & depending on clinical & radiographic condition of teeth go for treatment. If all conditions are fine & you want to save the tooth then go for root canal treatment, otherwise go for extraction. Consult your dentist for treatment plan. Meanwhile start with course of amoxi-clav 625 combination along with diclo- paracetamol- serratiopeptidase thrice a day & some multivitamin for 3 days. Hope I answered your query. Wishing you good health Regards Dr.Neha Sumra
