See a dentist: A clinical evaluation with the appropriate x-ray(s) by a dentist can help diagnose if your abscess is related to a tooth, and what treatment should be performed to treat your problem.
Dr. Gary Sandler
Dentistry 54 years experience
Dental problem: Abscess or not, see a dentist to have all your teeth and gums checked. Dental problems can affect other areas of your body and your general health. You should be seeing a dentist and a physician on a regular basis and especially if you are feeling that something is just not right. Untreated little problems become big problems and no one wants to have an emergency 2 am in the morning, or worse!
