Dental Exam: It appears you need to be seen by a local dentist for a comprehensive exam and treatment plan. Pain and swelling are indicative of infection.... needs to be treated ASAP. Halitosis can be attributed to cavities and periodontal disease. Please call for an appointment. Failure to treat can result in the loss of your teeth.
