What to do with abscess teeth?


New Member
Hi there,
My 8 years old DS has an abscessed tooth. I don't know what to do as his dentist is not in place. My DS is not able to sleep or eat because of the pain. I have given him a painkiller yesterday and only after having it, he was able to sleep. I'm thinking of taking him to an emergency dental clinic in Toronto for abscessed tooth treatment. Any thoughts? Or should I wait for his dentist to treat them? I would love to hear your suggestions. Thanks!!
