Posted by: cmj102562  (5 years ago)
Two years ago I had my upper teeth extracted,six total for dentures that I had made. The dentist was enable to remove one of the teeth, it broke,and was starting to experience anxiety,so I said I would come back the following week.Never did,and my dentures fit fine.the problem is a few months ago I got a abcess, went to ER. they put me on antibotics and it went away.Now I am experinceing the same pain again.can not get into the oral surgeon until February 3. I should have gone there in the first place. Any suggestions?

The only thing you can do is do what you should have done before: get the root tip out. Every time you medicate with antibiotics you produce more resistant bacteria, so antibiotics have a smaller chance of being effective.

If only a small fragments of tooth are left behind then it is usually harmless, but in some cases the small fragments may cause an abscess. You must have visited your dentise when he has asked you to do so. Nevertheless, it’s not too late, get back to your doctor and get the small piece removed.
