    Is it dangerous to pull an abscessed tooth?

    My tooth started bithering me in August of 2012.I went to an urgent care facility and they prescribed antibiotics and the swelling and toothache went away.But when the antibiotics wore off the swelling and pain came back.Needless to say,I have an abscess now and I had to wait until I got dental to get it taken care of.I have just started my second round of antibiotics and the dentist said that he would probably pull the tooth when I came back for my appointment.If the abscess is still there,is it safe to pull the tooth?

    My father-in-law is a dentist, it is fine, you don't want a root canal like that tho I would ask a dentist, I have asked him that question while looking at all his tools and what-not

    I'm surprised no one brought up the AR-15 yet. That'll get a tooth out.

    But then, the other side will talk about how so many teeth are lost to car accidents.
