I have a small abcess on the tooth i'm supposed to get out tomorrow, its not causing me pain although it did a couple of nights ago, will they still take it out? or give me antibiotics first? i can't stand the thought of waiting any longer i just want it out tomorrow :(

Sorry we missed you! Ooops!

Any remaining abscess material will drain away now, as the tooth was the cause of the infection. Should heal uneventfully now. Follow the post-op instructions that you have been given.

Well done you!

Pars :)
