Comment from: DanniA, Female Published: May 13

I have an abscess just above my right-hand wisdom tooth. I am in a lot of pain finding it hard to swallow, my right cheek is swollen along with my gums. I am trying my best to get into an emergency dentist. As time is going on the pain is getting worse and I'm starting to get a fever with it. I haven't visited my local dentist for 6 years I am now 22 and I wish I hadn't left it for so long. After this abscess is sorted I have made a promise to myself I will re-register with my local dentist as I would like to avoid this pain in the future. And my advice to anybody who hasn't been to their local dentist for a while like me, get registered now as this pain is something I would not like to go through again.

Two years ago I had on and off pain and swelling in lower jaw/gums every four months. I went to a dentist to get it checked. He said I had a hole in my tooth and needed to get it filled. I went along with that advice and regretted it. Two weeks later I went to a different dentist begging to rip the tooth out it was so painful. The tooth got pulled out and the abscess was connected and pulled out with it “ lucky!
