I am scheduled for a molar and wisdom tooth extraction next week. But my gum is swollen and painful due to abscess in my molar. Will they pull the teeth out or do I have to let the swelling subside first?
You seem to have an infection. You have to clear the infection first with antibiotics before you can go on with the extraction. My dentist postponed pulling my tooth out because I had an abscess. He said the anesthesia will not be as effective with an infection. Inform your dentist about it so he can tell you what to do.
