I have an abscessed tooth. I'm trying to work myself up to going to the dentist, but I'm really, really nervous about the possibility of having to take antibiotics. It's a long story, but I have a lot of anxiety in regards to antibiotics and will do whatever I can to avoid taking them. Are they absolutely necessary for an abscessed tooth? The tooth is in pretty bad shape as well, and I'm pretty sure it's going to have to be extracted. It likely won't require antibiotics if it's extracted, right? I could really use some advice, I'm freaking out!
