A 49-year-old female asked:
My daughter has recurring abcesses. Some nerves have been taken out of her teeth, but the abscesses are still recurring. They appear all over gums, sometimes 2 at atime. What should I do?

Mouth ulcers?: If the "abscesses are appearing all over the gums, my first thought is that you are not dealing with infected nerves, but most likely a virus-mediated ulceration or ulcers induced by some food(s). If your dentist has been treating this with root canal therapy, maybe you should get a second opinion from a gum specialist?
