Abscess in My Gums – Dr Dental
A week or so ago my daughter hit my top lip under and cut my gum. Now it hurt to smile or eat anything too hot. It is all red and I think I may have an abscess. Should I try popping it myself or have it checked out.
Answer: Stay on the safe side and see a dentist about it. An Oral abscess in not to be taken lightly and can start to cause you to have other dental issues if not address right away. Also a dentist will be able to prescribe you an antibiotic to help fight any infection if needed.
