You're right...: Most tooth abscesses rarely affect adjacent teeth. This is a remarkable sign of a healthy immune system that can hold the infection 'at bay.' the infection tends affect the supporting bone and not destroy blood supply or nerves. If the cause of the infection is removed (extraction or root canal) our bodies can heal the affected bone while the blood/nerves still survive. Amazing isn't it? ...Read more

Tooth abscess: What's important is you being placed on an appropriate antibiotic and having that tooth treated as soon as possible to remove the cause of the infection (usually root canal therapy) and hopefully saving the tooth.

Absolutely: This is precisely why periodic evaluations are recommended- to help identify problems before they become advanced or painful. Unfortunately, the current dental insurance system discourages (through lack of reimbursement to providers) very thorough evaluations of all the teeth roots (tends to focus on decay in the crowns), so infections can be missed, but they can exist undetected for a long time. ...Read more

See your dentist asap before it gets worse. ...Read more
Depends: If you are taking the appropriate antibiotic and/or you have removed the source of the infection, it should resolve quickly. If not treated it will get worse until the pressure is relieved either by rupturing the abcess or it destroys enough underlying tissue that the pressure is reduced. But then it will still be there, but not hurting as much! ...Read more
Antibiotics: There is no one right answer. First the cause of the abscess needs to be addressed. Second, I hope you are not self prescribing. Dosage and regimen depend upon numerous factors including your medical history, dental history, dosage, regimen, size and cause of infection, etc. Discuss this with the prescribing doctor or if you don't have one, get one. ...Read more
