If my pus filled gum fistula drains by itself does this present a larger problem than one that does not?
I drained pus from gum abscess--all ok. No pus now; a very tiny bead of fluid about ready (or not) to drain by itself. I help it along? Under care.
My dds said I have an abcess and drained 2mm pus. Where gum meets margin of crowned tooth. Taking amoxicilin. Repeat prescription after 7 days again, if needed?
Abcess: This sounds like a periodontal (gum) abcess. If so, drainage and antibiotics will help heal. Periodontal abcesses usually occur from food impaction or popcorn husks.

If taking antibiotics, the pus should resolve, but could still return later. Pus never really is normal. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
