I Cant' get rid of absess

I have had an absess on my gum for about 3 weeks now. I have been dentist twice and he has given me some stonger antibiotics which have seemed to help. 1 week later It is still there. When I brush I sometimes catch it and it bleeds again so reopens How long does it take to go away?

Re: I Cant' get rid of absess

You should not feel guilty about asking for a second opinion. From personal experience, an unchecked infection in your jaw can become a devastating thing. Ask family or friends about their dentist, and get another opinion. Make sure that you let them know the meds you have already taken. GOOD LUCK and don't just let it go.

Hi klarika
Did the dentist open it for you?I have had a couple and the dentist opened them,then he gave me antibotics--he said the antibotic would work,but it would be faster if he opened it too--so I told him to open it-when he did the relief was immediate--mine was terribly painfull too!!hope it goes away soon--good luck to you.
