My dentist is unsure if I have an abscess
in one of my molar teeth. The tooth
has been chipped off for years and while it doesn't look normal but it causes me no trouble either. I read where a dental abscess has symptoms like--sensitivity to hot and cold foods, pain, sinus infections, facial swelling, etc.. I have none of these symptoms but the dentist still wants to extract the tooth. I do not want to.
