If you ignore toothache, does the pain eventually just go away?
Having a friendly argument with someone at work...we are both phobic about dental treatment. The difference is, I go regularly for check ups to avoid having decay, and if I am in pain I go immediately to get it fixed (I have to get IV sedation, but I do go.)

My friend knows she has an abcess - she has had one before - and she says she will just keep taking strong painkillers and work through it until the pain goes - usually three days she says! She cannot bear the thought of a root canal, (although personally, I would have thought the pain of an abcess would be a lot worse.)

Is this true? Does the nerve eventually die off and the pain go without treatment?

It might go away temporarily, only to return with avengance later (and probably worse).
Best to nip it in the bud ASAP and get to the dentist. They may just remove the tooth rather than do Root canal treatment- sometimes it is easier and less painful in the long run.
I don't know 1 person who actually enjoys a visit to the dentist- I think its just an unnecessary evil!!

i tried to leave my tooth ache but it got worse and as it had broken, after a while the nerve became exposed and if i ate on it it was agony. i couldn't afford root canal treatment so i had the tooth pulled out as it was at the back. I hadn't been to the dentist for years, but once they inject your gum, you can't feel a thing

depends whats causing the pain

no you must get this seen to as the rest of your teeth will rot also problems with your stomach and end up having the lot of teeth to be extracted

no it'll just get worse and cause more problems.

im my experience no it does not go away forever, it might go away for a while but then it will come back with evengence.
Go to the dentist and have it seen too, leaving it too long can cause the infection to spread to other teeth and the gums

No, its probably a cavity getting worse everyday. It'll just cost more if its not taken care of soon.

Abscesses and toothache can lead to blood poisoning if not treated and blood poisoning can be fatal

No. The dental infection she has can cause heart disease, osteomylitis and septacaemia.
Her breath must stink.

Painkillers won't kill the infection. If she has an abscess it can be very dangerous. I know a marine who had a tooth infection that went to his brain, and he ended like someone who had had a stroke. She should get antibiotics.

it can get into her blood where she can get it all over her body as a septic infection,she's dumb

She is risking her general health if she doesn't have it treated. It will eventually lead to gum disease,which in turn is related to heart problems.

When the nerve dies off the infection drains through a small opening at the end of the tooth called the apex. An abscess develops as a result of the fluid being trapped. The abscess may find a means of drainage a small opening in the gum called a sinus this can resolve pain temporarily. Sometimes an abscess may not find a way of draining and the infection can spread causing a cellulitis.
Living with a constant infection is not good, your body is constantly fighting it and also the bone around the tooth may be being destroyed so should your friend ever have to have the tooth out and maybe want a dental implant then there may not be enough healthy bone to support and implant or even the original tooth and it may become loose itself. You are quite right to go to the dentist regularly and your friend is not.
