I have an abscessed tooth. The tooth is almost gone. I will have to get surgically removed and do not have the money. I was wondering. Can I die from the infection? I have been on antibiotics from Penicillin to Amoxicillin to Tramadol. At about 1 AM, I felt the same pain I had before. But, it was just the one tooth and not my whole left side. It felt like it was trying to come out on its own again, then felt like a needle touched on what was left of the tooth. I yelled, ouch. It tasted funny and weird. I touched the tooth, and it was bleeding. I looked in the mirror and saw blood. I got terrified and asked my mom what I could do. She asked me to rinse my mouth with warm water. I did, but I still taste that funny stuff. Should I go to the emergency room?
