should I put a hot or cold compress on an infected tooth?

whichever feels best

hollie s
rinse with salt water to help kill infection, for 3 days. And go to the dentist, if it persists.

whichever relieves the pain is what I would use

Green eyes
call the doctor before you do either.

Hot will cause more swelling and more pain. I don't know if cold will help or not, but it certainly won't hurt. Take ibuprofen too; it will help a little.

Cold, but get to a dentist QUICK

if you know you have an infection, you should know that you can die from it if nothing is done.... get to the dentist for Gods sake!

If you have an abscessed tooth you should see a dentist, pronto.

Oh, and a cold compress will reduce swelling.

i would think COLD, but I suggest to go immediately to a dentist. With an infection the whole face can swell up and that will take days to get back to normal....you better go now before its too late

no you should take an antibiotic to get rid of some of the swelling it might develope into a nasty mess

Rinse your mouth out with a solution of 3 oz water and 2 ounces peroxide, and 1/4 tsp salt. Yes, it tastes nasty! Get your butt to the dentist, ASAP!

PS - 2 Aleve, and 2 tylenol xtra will get that pain under control
