Tooth abscess but can't afford dentist..?
Please help, I'm freaking out because my friend said I could die from this..

I don't have enough money to go to the dentist, and my mom wont take me there for this reason..every time I mention it she gets all mad and says something like "yeah, I know. my teeth are bad too, but you learn to deal with it."

It's really painful though..my gum is all swelled up and I can't even eat on that side of my mouth.. if I brush the spot thats abscessed will it help to make it go away? Will it help keep it from getting worse? Is there anything I can buy over the counter that will help and isn't expensive? How long does it take for people to die from this? Can abscessed teeth still be saved, or do they have to be pulled?

I did research and theres no dentist schools near me...so is there nothing I can do? Just leave it?.. Help?

You cannot die from tooth abscess. You should try to brush your tooth after every meal and use some additional products for cleaning, as mouthwash. There are also some medical gels or similar products that can be applied locally. Do not brush the spot with force, because there can be more painful.

Abscessed teeth can be salved, but try to get the money to go to a dentist for proper help, because nobody should suffer that pain.

Take the advise. Brush your teeth 3 times a day, use teeth cord once a day, get a mouth wash and use it every day. Mouth wash will take all kind of pain out of your mouth.

For the abscessed get over the counter, "Miel Rosada", is "Pink Honey" it is cheap and it works. I use it whenever I need it. Use it and you will see the result. And please, do not believe what was said by your friend. Safe money and get your teeth fix whenever you can.

God bless you.

You can go to the emergency room and get penicillin it will get rid of the Abcess! I get them all the time, and the penicillin works wonders. You'll be alright sweetie, just get your butt to the ER ASAP! It's basically just an infection

A dentist most likely can't help you. I have the same problem and finally went to the dentist and they just did an x-ray and told me what i already knew and gave me some amoxicillin and then refered me to an oral surgeon. So if your like me and have medical and not dental I'd go to the doctor's office.

where do you live? if you are somewhat close....go to mexico. 60% of the dentists down there are american and it is 1/4 of the price you will pay in the US. you will most likely need to get a root canal and a crown, or have the tooth extracted. if mexico is too far and the tooth is towards the back and you can't really see it, you may just want to have it pulled. $150-250 (i think) as oppossed to $2000 for a root canal and crown.....big difference.

in the mean time, rinse with hydrogen peroxide (it says right on the label that one of the uses for it is as a mouthwash). it may not taste great but it will kill the bacteria.


Oh, feel so sorry for you


I just asked my Mum who was in a similar situation last year and she told me to tell you to go to the Doctor (if you can afford that also) and explain truthfully to the Dr your situation.

(eg) That you're in alot of pain, simply cannot afford to go to the Dentist and ask for some antibiotics please.

Mum had a kind Dr and this worked - she was pain-free for months and was able to save up and eventually get to the Dentist and have the tooth seen to.

Apparently, the Dentist will tell you the same thing and will prescribe antibiotics (but pricier!) and he may be reluctant to treat your absess as it is.

Also, I'd recommend buying some PURE Essential Oil of Tea Tree (can be sourced from some chemists, drug stores or natural health food stores) and apply some neat to your absess with a cotton bud.

Granted, the taste is a little strong but will work to clear up your infection somewhat.

Tea tree oil is a great natural antibiotic, antiseptic and antifungal :-) Tea Tree Oil is one of the very few Essential Oils that can be applied neat to the body without the need for dilution.


All The Best, Take Care of Yourself & We Both Hope You're Feeling Better Soon

not sure if you can die from it...but if you get a bad enough infection anywhere on your body you can die....not really common. anyway, lots of dentists offer payment plans and work with you as long as you make your payments each month. you can also open a care credit account and finance your dental work...but you have to do that through care credit and it's only used at certain dentists.

People Die from Tooth abscesses all the time. However, very rarely the young and healthy. Usually the old and the already weak.

Penicillin is the way to go. Unfortunately the Emergency Room is your best hope. The kind and compassionate Govt. would rather pay $800 to the ER in write offs than to pay a dentist to see you. Even if you are a minor, Go to the ER

well i'm afraid that abscessed teeth mostly have to be pulled..and actually even brushing your teeth in this stage won't do any good that's cause the abscess is already formed ..you can take antibiotics and pain killers and hope for the best ..anyway you can't die from tooth abscess and besides maybe it's not an abscess after all and its just an acute inflammation that will be treated by anti-inflammatory drugs.. hope you feel better soon :)

You can rinse your mouth w/Peroxide several times a day...but I would go for the antibiotic. An infection in a tooth can kill you. I knew of a man who had it and even tho he went to the dentist, the infection went to the lining around his heart and killed him.

Sweetheart, abscessed teeth are NO fun and they don't get better on their own, you need antibiotics, if indeed it is infected. For now, take ibuprofen {if able} for the pain, brush as you normally would, then follow by rinsing with warm, salt water. Also, talk to your mother again and be respectful, yet insistant that this isnt a plain ole toothache that will eventually subside and you need some medical care. Even a doctor could help by perscribing the appropriate meds for infection.

Hang in there.

So sorry - you must be living in the States. A country where profit is more important than peoples health.
