How To Treat A Gum Boil At Home
Generally the gum boils are treated by drainage of the pus, disinfecting and then filling the infected tooth.
Apicectomy, which is the removal of the tip of the root, is done when disinfecting the tooth is not possible.
Extracting the tooth is another option when the damage done by the bacterial infection is irreversible. ...Read more

No: The "gum boil" is the result of infection trying to move to the area of least resistance. If you pop it at home without supervision then you risk spreading the infection. Amoxicillin typically takes 2 - 3 days to work. If it is not painful then be patient for a couple of days, it may go away. If not call your healthcare provider. ...Read more

Salt water soaks: You may try salt water soaks but whatever you do, do not try to squeeze or pop it yourself. Take 1 table spoon of salt to a pint (large glass) of warm (not hot) tap water. Soak a wash cloth in it then let it sit on the "boil" for 5-10 minutes 2-3 times each day. This may help. ...Read more

I think I have gum boil on the inside of my gums. I wear braces, and I wanted to know if this is a common thing with braces. It formed a few days ago.
Gum boils are not common. They may be caused by a gum infection, food entrapment, a loose or broken bracket. How often are you seeing your dentist for cleanings and check-ups?
Have your dentist or orthodontist check the area to why you have the gum boil. ...Read more
RCT or EXT?: Whether or not to do RCT or extract the tooth depends upon many factors. Unfortunately that is not something we can evaluate over the internet without actually seeing the tooth and an x-ray. If the infection is too large, if there is not enough sound tooth structure or if the tooth has severe bone loss, you will loose the tooth anyway even if RCT done. Trust your dentist or get a 2nd opinion. ...Read more
I have a gum boil I think and it doesn't hurt when I touch it and I'm really scared to get a root canal I'm only 14 : (I also have braces?
Abscess unlikely: With out the presence of a large, painful, cavity in your tooth, it is unlikely that this is an abscess. At age 14 you might still have baby teeth. This could just be a permanent tooth erupting a little out of place. Don't be scared. See your dentist and let them figure out what is going on. Their job is to help you. ...Read more

I recently performed oral and two days later and I have gum boils and a sore throat. I'm hoping it's just a cold?
Get checked: In the absence of any other cold symptoms such as cough, congestion, runny nose, sneezing, headache, fever, etc., I would be very concerned about std, which you absolutely can get in your mouth after oral sex. You should get tested, and use a dental dam or other barrier in the future. ...Read more
I had a root canal that resulted in swollen jaw and a fever of around 100. I started on 300mg of Clindamycin t.i.d. Will that bring the fever down? I also had a gum boil which got drained.
See a dentist: Most often, an infection should be evaluated by a health provider. Any abscess will heal more quickly once drained, because antibiotics won't get into an area without blood supply. For that reason there is a higher risk of complication or spread of infection to other areas if this is not performed. In particular, the bacteria in a serious dental infection can affect the heart valves. ...Read more
I have to choose between a cemented implant crown or a screw retained one. Cement under gum = boils and bone loss. Screw type is more money. How much?
Screw if possible: Even if you have a cemented crown, there will be no cement under the gumline... it will all be removed at the time of cementation. Can't imagine why a screw retained crown is more expensive, unless the restorative dentist is using a prefabricated post and the lab is charging him/her for a routine crown. Since I have everything custom made on implants, I charge the same. ...Read more
