Question:
I think I've got the start of a dental abscess (have had them twice before and once lost a crowned tooth due to one); there is increasing pain if I chew on a particular (long since root-filled) tooth. Can you advise if antibiotics would be enough to clear it up, and how much a consultation would cost? Cost determines treatment in my case as I do not have (cannot afford) dental insurance and it might be cheaper to return to the UK. Thanks.

Answer:
I truly can't diagnose and tell you over the phone the best way to treat dental infection. If you really having problems you've described you should see a dentist ASAP. Just to make sure you're not missing any more serious problems. It will cost you around $60 US for a check-up and then antibiotics can be prescribed. You will need to submit a medical history to make sure you have no allergies to meds and other health issues. Finally if there is a major infection you will be better off with diagnosing it on time instead of having it spread around and causing more damage and possible complications. Regards,
