And as far as you pulling it yourself, it can cause other complications. My kid had an oral surgeon pull her wisdom teeth and they missed a chard so we had to go back to have it taken out. And as for antibiotics maybe that's all you need. I didn't lose mine- I hope you can save the tooth! From Dr. George Malkemus DDS http://www.malkemusdds.com/articles.aspx?id=70http://www.malkemusdds.com/articles.aspx?id=70 Treatment Of A Dental Abscess Before the advent of modern medicine and the use of antibiotics, dental abscesses were frequent causes of death. Ancient human skulls often show large bone loss at the tip of teeth, indicating an abscess and the probable cause of death. In its early stage, an abscess can be successfully treated with antibiotics, warm salt-water rinses and over-the-counter pain relievers. If the abscess is due to a gum infection, then usually periodontal therapy can resolve the problem. However, if the infection is due to deep decay and has damaged the tooth’s pulp, a root canal is usually needed. Sometimes tooth extraction may be necessary or an abscess may have to be surgically drained.

Happened to my ex's best friend. [b]The dentist probably won't pull it until the infection is gone either.[/b] Get some antibiotics. Take a teabag, empty it, cut it down to create a pouch and fill with 1/4 tsp of powdered cloves, Moisten it with warm water and put it between the tooth and gum. It tastes nasty but really works! This helped me through a tooth that was so painful- it was worse than childbirth and a gall bladder attack that turned into pancreatitis requiring emergency surgery. Bite the bullet and have a dentist pull it. [quote:Anonymous Coward 33276320:MV8yMTIzMjI4XzM1ODI0Mjc2XzFGQzc4NDVD] I'm trying to fight through the pain! [/quote] [/quote] :bsflag: See what I mean?
