I can't afford dental insurance but i did have my family doctor treat it. He prescribed amoxicilin 500mg three times a day for 7 days. The first round did not help and i began to feel the pain move into my lower jaw and just a little ways down my neck. So I called my doctor again and he gave me another round of the same thing as above. I really dont feel the pain any more, but i think the abcess is still there because when i rub my fingers along my right jaw line i can still feel the lump. Its hard as a rock but i dont feel much pain. The last time i have been to the dentist was back in early 2000. He told me I needed to have 7 teeth extracted. This is really depressing because at the time i was only 25 years old. I just need information on what to do ive read in different places that if gone untreated abcessed teeth can cause immune system problems and could also be potentially life threatening. If you have any suggestions or could point me into the right direction i would sincerely appreciate it. Thanx
