Dentist insisted that the tooth
had to come out. I told her that I've never had a tooth
extraction while having abscessing going on, and she said it was fine. Tooth was pulled and was sent home with an Rx of Clindamycin (150mg), 4xday. infection
got worse. Dentist, then used a laz
er to open and drain the infected area. Several shots (7-8) of novacaine was needed to numb the area. After procedure, my mouth hurt and burned the worst that I've ever experienced before.
