Hi I have an abscess on my gum but its higher than how other people say its between their gum line and tooth. Mine is more on the center of the gum. Anyways I went to my dentist almost 3 to 4 weeks ago and they gave me penisillin vk 500 mg i believe, but when i went i guess my abscess "popped" before i went and they gave me that. I finished my antibiotics but it's still there with pus its not big just a little bump and i haven't gone since then. Should ibe concerned? And aslo i was wondering if it is still congious. Can i live a normal life like sharing drinks or kissing maybe? Please respond thank you.

    HEY JUNIOR ALWAYS MOUTH WASH EVERY DAY AFTER MEALS AND ALSO WHEN YOU CAN  ,,, DENTAL ABCESS ARE NOT CONTAGIOUS , IF THIS STILLS HAS SOME PUS OR WHITE SPOT THEN ITS STILL INFECTION , JUST KEEP EYE ON IT AND KEEP MOUTH MATICULOUS CLEAN,, IF SWELLING OCCURS ,, RUN TO DENTIST OR PAIN  ,, SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO BRUSH SUPER HARD TO MAKE GUM BLEED SO INFECTION CAN COME OUT OF SWOLLEN GUM,, ARE YOU SURE YOU DONT NEED ROUTE CANAL OR ONE WAS DONE RECENTLY BECAUSE EVENTUALLY ROUTE CANALS GO BAD ,, SOME LAST MANY YEARS ,, I GOT IMPLANTS ,, WHEN DONE CORRECTLY THEY ARE AWESOME ... IF U HAVE ANY INFECTION ITS FROM EITHER BONE LOSS OR TOOTH BAD

      Ok thanks! And yes i did have a root canal done about 3 or 4 years ago but they messed up on it so that might be the case and bone loss too and im going to get that root canal fixed but the abscess is one tooth in front can that still be the problem?

       A XRAY BY A GOOD DENTIST CAN REVEAL YOUR PROBLEM ,  THE PUS PIMPLE OR SPOT IS LIKE A ROUTE THE PUS TAKES TO DRAIN,, IT FORMS UNDER A BAD ROUTE CANAL OR BAD ROUTE OF THE TOOTH , MAYBE THE TOOTH NEXT TO ROUTE CANAL IS GOING BAD ALSO ,,, GO GET A XRAY ,,IF YOUR NOT HAPPY WITH THE DENTIST GET AWAY FROM HIM OR HER

      LISTEN ,, MAKING IT BLEED WILL PUSH OUT THE PUS AND IT BLEEDING WILL IN MY OPINION IS GOOD ,, BUT DONT OVER BRUSH ,, LET YOUR GUMS HEAL NOW   TAKE SOME WARM SALT WATER GARGLE AND LEAVE THE GUMS ALONE ,, AS I SAID IF ITS NOT INFECTED IT WILL STOP OOZING PUS ,, SEE  A GOOD QUALIFIED DENTIST ,, I AM NOT A DENTIST ,, JUST SOMEONE WHOS HAD THIS TROUBLE COUPLE OF TIMES ,,, USUALY ANTIBIOTICS CLEAR INFECTION ,,,BUT IT WILL COME BACK AND SOONER THAN U THINK , THATS WHY REOCCURING PUS SPOTS ARE INDICATIONS OF TOOTH ABCESS OR GUM PROBLEMS ,, IF THEY REMOVE TOOTH ,,THE PUS DISAPPEARS SHPORTLY
