For 2 years i have had issues with a back tooth on the right side of my mouth.
it started by eating popcorn and the tooth chipped.. which developed into a hole gradually, the last straw was a couple of months ago, i bit into a "fritter" and half of my tooth fell out with it.
the last 2 weeks, i have had a lump on my jawline, i have been doing all the regular treatments such as:
swishing with oral disinfectant
brushing with herbal tooth powder
essential oils galore
the last 4 days, things are getting from bad to worst. i now have an apple sized abcess on the right of my face.
i have been to the dentist and unfortunately have been taking their Antibiotics
for 3 days, the pain has subdued but the swelling appears to be getting bigger??? i have to go back to the emergency dentist in an hour.
i know root canals
are dangerous, but they say i need one on Monday, i would love to avoid this, but unsure how.
2 years of pain, and now it has gotten a lot worst. any advice please?
