Till you upload the picture, I am going to answer your question because the things are quite obvious.

Dr. Hasan :

The pain after tooth extraction and yellow spot due to abscess is not normal after 7 days of tooth extraction.

Dr. Hasan :

you should definitely see your dentist or even a GP and if that is not possible then emergency room as you may need drainage of abscess and antibiotics.

Dr. Hasan :

As long as the pus will stay there, the pain will remain.

Customer:

thanks for quick reply

Customer:

Dr. Hasan :

I hope you are taking pain killers but if you are not then over the counter tab aleve twice daily is the strongest option for you.

Customer:

soft

Dr. Hasan :

If you touch it with some pointing object, does pus come out?

Customer:

should i try?

Dr. Hasan :

No I was asking in case you might have tried it.

Customer:

well we will go to dentist anyway but i wish to get as much info from u as possible as i will feel much better.

Dr. Hasan :

Don't do it as it can be painful.

Customer:

no i havent im bit scared it will be painfull

Customer:

but i know its soft

Dr. Hasan :

Yes as I said, pain after 7 days, is not normal at all.

Dr. Hasan :

The presence of abscess means that you need the drainage

Dr. Hasan :

In presence of abscess even antibiotics don't work.

Dr. Hasan :

This doesn't mean that he has left roots inside.

Dr. Hasan :

The tissue can become infected even after removal of all roots.

Customer:

doctor was quite sure roots are out,so i hope so

Dr. Hasan :

Are you on any pain killers or antibiotics?

Customer:

just painkillers at the moment

Dr. Hasan :

Yes he must have removed the roots if he said so.

Dr. Hasan :

Which one?

Customer:

should i go to emergenci or normal dentist

Customer:

ibuprofen

Dr. Hasan :

you should go to dentist because he can help you.

Dr. Hasan :

If going to dentist is not possible then the second option is emergency roon.

Dr. Hasan :

room

Dr. Hasan :

Make sure you are taking ibuprofen in proper dose.

Customer:

so its better to wait till tommorow for dentist?

Dr. Hasan :

Aleve is better option.

Customer:

aleve?

Customer:

what is that?

Dr. Hasan :

It is available over the counter.

Dr. Hasan :

Yes that is a stronger pain killer available from pharmacy without prescription.

Dr. Hasan :

Dose is twice daily.

Dr. Hasan :

You can use that till you go to dentist.

Customer:

will i be sleepy?

Customer:

is it drowsy ?or how you call it..

Dr. Hasan :

No not at all.

Dr. Hasan :

No it has no sedation.

Customer:

ok,, so its not point to call emergenci its better to go to dentist right?

Dr. Hasan :

It's just like ibuprofen but stronger than it

Dr. Hasan :

If pain is bearable then yes going to dentist is best.

Customer:

if i go to dentist tommorow is there a chance that they will take me? could they say they are too busy and give me apppointment month after?it happend to me before

Dr. Hasan :

Well if you go to same dentist then it is likely that they will take you because you have got a complication after a procedure done by them.

Customer:

it was done in different country :(

Dr. Hasan :

Oh I see.

Customer:

i was on holliday out of uk

Customer:

now im in uk.

Dr. Hasan :

But even then I would advise you to see dentist if possible, if not then yes emergency room option or seeing GP is an option.

Customer:

what is best to tell them so they will act?

Dr. Hasan :

Tell that you have pain there and abscess as well.

Dr. Hasan :

This should be enough for them to help you.

Customer:

and if they dont take me should i go to emergenci ?or wait for another apointment

Dr. Hasan :

Do you have pain on pressing cheek as well?

Customer:

no

Customer:

only gums

Dr. Hasan :

Ok

Customer:

ok i think thats all

Dr. Hasan :

If they don't take you and pain is controlled with pain killers and appointment is not more than 2 days far then yes wait for dentist.

Dr. Hasan :

Otherwise go to emergency.

Customer:

im just scared that they could say they are too busy to take me and there will be nowhere to go before christmas :(

Customer:

ok then

Dr. Hasan :

Option for emergency room is always there.

Customer:

do they do drainage on emergency as well?

Dr. Hasan :

Usually not.

Dr. Hasan :

But they can prescribe you antibiotics

Dr. Hasan :

That is the reason that try to get dentist's appt.

Customer:

ok i think thats all

Dr. Hasan :

:)
