In brief: Absessed gums&sores

Gum absess is the result of an infection or trauma.
Usually trated with antibiotics, pain killers and if it does not drain by itself, than it has to be opened to drain the puss.

Antibiotics and pain killers are only palliative. What's causing the abscess? There must be a gum & bone problem, or endodontic problem requiring a root canal or lastly extraction. Don't expect antibiotics to cure the problem !

In brief: Find the cause

Youneed either an endodontist, periodontist or an oral surgeon.
