I have a cyst or an abscess on the roof of my mouth. I have an appointment at Aldershot dental centre on the 16 February which was supposed to be on the 2nd of February but they had to cancel. The thing is it has got bigger but from x-ray it's not clear whether it is coming from the tooth which is dead or from something else I have been gave amoxicillin. Is there anything else I should be doing while I am waiting on my appointment. The cyst or abbcess is rather large and I am quite concerned about it.
