A 33-year-old member asked:

Injections: Your dental injection should be relatively pain free. An upper tooth if given slowly with shaking your cheek should be painless. If given on the inside on you palate it could pinch for an instant only. If a lower injection is given again given slowly while shaking your cheek should be painless. Your dentist should also apply a topical anesthetic to the area prior to the injection.

Abscess: Treating an infection (abscess) by yourself would not be a wise idea. You should use a skilled professional to treat your problem. Doing it yourself would not be treating the underlying cause, which should be done.

Abscess: A dental abscess can be painful. However it can also be painless. The symptoms vary from person to person and tooth to tooth. There are no absolutes.
