Q.

tooth abcess

It''s the weekend. My dentist not available. Went to GP for tooth abcess under a crown. The root treatment on the tooth was done 15 years ago and crown fitted then. I am in absolute agony. Dr prescribed schedule 5 painkiller, but not working. Taking Flagyl and Augmentin as well. What can I do to make the pain go away? Have this pain for 3 days now and it''s getting more and more intense. Must I still go see a dentist?
