Unfortunately, the bacteria will continue to wreak havoc on the surrounding tissue. There is no proven way on how to get rid of a tooth abscess without going to the dentist. Even if your tooth pain has subsided, you should visit your dentist if you have symptoms of tooth infection.
Doctors still don’t know how to get rid of a tooth abscess without going to the dentist. However, teeth abscesses are easily treatable by your dentist.
Treatment is aimed at eliminating the infection. Depending on the particular case, your dentist may:
Dental Abscess Drainage
In order to drain the pus from the abscess, the dentist will make a small cut and then wash the area with salt water (saline). Sometimes, a small rubber drain is inserted into the area to allow it to drain while the swelling subsides.
Your dentist may choose to drain the abscess and extract the tooth if the tooth can’t be saved.
Root Canal Treatment
This will allow the infection to be removed and the tooth to be saved. A dentist removes the diseased central tissue (pulp) and drains the abscess by drilling into your tooth. Following that, the root canals and pulp chamber are filled and sealed. It may be necessary to cap the tooth with a crown to make it stronger.
An antibiotic may not be required if the infection is contained within the abscessed area. Your dentist may prescribe antibiotics if the infection has spread to nearby teeth, your jaw, or other areas. Antibiotics might also be prescribed if you have a weak immune system.
