Hana... it may be that you just need a little time for the antibiotic to work. However, having said that, it couldn't hurt to get a second opinion if you are concerned. Be sure and tell them everything and what meds you have been taking. Hope it gets well soon.

tabatha7..............thnx 4 ur concern
gonna waiting until finishing antibiotic, the main problem that
im suffer from needle phobia and that made me abort this op about 4 years until i found dental clinic using STA that reduce pain of shot
im worry about reopening gum it makes me very nervus , also i doubt all doctors and afraid about their faults

and it's20 days after op i think it's long time to still have gum abscess

I understand your fears and concerns. I hope you can get a 2nd opinion from someone else maybe to put your mind at ease. I hope one of the dentist here can give you some advice.
