Why r u waiting ?: You need to be examined and treated ASAP by a dentist. Please call for an appointment. Your problem cannot be accurately diagnosed over the internet.

Gum abscess: A gum abscess can become very painful when tissues become inflamed or due to the pressure within the abscess. If the infection is not treated, it can damage the surrounding bone and teeth. Call your dentist today for x-rays and treatment.
