Q.

Boil on gums

Hi my sonhas a boil on one of the 2 front teeth. This tooth has been turning dark in the past few month and I think it''s decaying. He has not been to the dentist as i was planning to take him in december after turning 4. He says its not painful but i''m worried what will happen if left untreated. Please advise

he has an abscess- it is definitely not advisable to leave it untreated- the infection could get worse and spread. see a dentist immediately
