When did your son see a dentist last? Have you tried calling his dentist or doctor? Thanks

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Probably 5 months ago. I haven't seen anyone as of yet. He's been in pain for a couple of days but I've only just noticed the colour change. I wanted to see if you knew what it could be and if there is something that can be done other then pain killers. I will also try and get an appointment tomorrow

He maybe experiencing an abscess which will require oral antibiotics. Thanks
