I have had a tooth abscess for six weeks and have a curved root on that tooth. Therefore, I need to see an endodontist. The wait list for this specialist in the place I live is another 3 months. I have a visible pocket above the tooth . The antibiotics have not shrunk this ...i have stopped taking them as i was on them for a whole month. Should I be worried about waiting that long to see an endodontist? I have read that this can be dangerous, but I can't get in to the dentist any sooner. I am concerned.
