Has anyone had a dental abscess/fistula for a long time?

If so, how long? If you never got it taken care of, did it heal up or what happened? I've had one for about 4 years now, the tooth has been gone for about the same amount of time. No $ for dentist, and would have a hard time trusting one anyway, so am wondering what if anything would happen if I never do anything about it. It sometime 'acts up' like it did a week ago, and my face got swollen, one gland below it hurt, lot of discharge, my body took care of whatever was going on, and now it seems to have moved up a bit in my face, but swelling is gone. Can it just stay in a 'holding pattern'? It seems to be doing that pretty much. Thank you for any information. :)
