I had an abcess due to a bad root canal.
I couldn't stand the idea of this thing growing bigger and poisoning me while I waited for an appointment. I sterilized a razor with flame and isopropyl alcohol. Put a small incision so as to allow the puss to drain and spit continually until it was right down. I used peroxide on a cotton ball to between teeth and cheek to press on it making sure not to swallow the peroxide.
Check it repeatedly, when you need to spit, and stop when you see no more bubbling or the tissue is turning white. This white tissue will prevent the incision to reclose and provide a natural shunt to allow any further puss to be released. There is no danger in swallowing the puss, perhaps some nauseau (that might be psychological) but at any rate, spitting out frequently would make you feel better.
The abcess did not come back for me although I did get a root canal of which had failed and turned out only a partial. Still did not get another abcess. Can't say your's won't come back...Sorry...

If you rather not cut yourself, you can take equal amounts of baking soda and salt mixed together with a damp cotton ball dipped in the mixture, place it between your gum and tooth where the abscessed tooth is, and it will end up making a pimple of sort that you can pop easily and usually no pain at which just spit the puss out. Doesnt taste all that great but it does help some, did this with my first abscessed tooth (At which i got fixed a month later) and it helped with the pain a lot as well as took swelling down some too. Sure if you continue it, it should have the same effect as cutting i would guess. Would be a little safer too.

I used a steak knife and I sterilized it and lanced the abcess used hydrozine peroxide and the swelling went down in two hours.

WELL I LIKE HER REMEDY AND I DON'T CARE WHO HAS BAD COMMENTS. I WENT TO THE ER AND THEY USED A SIMILAR TECHNIQUE WHICH COSTS ME 500.00 WHEN I COULD HAVE USED THE RAZOR BLADE FOR 1.00. SO STOP COMPLAINING. DON'T EVEN THINK ABUT BASHING ME, BECAUSE I'M NOT INTERESTING IN YOUR COMMENTS. I LOVE HER REMEDY, BYE

STOP. STOP. STOP.

If you are reading this, you need to understand first that cutting/poking/draining for abscess is the dumbest thing you can do.

It's idiots like this that post this shit that get people killed. The infection is not gone you simply gave the infection places to spread, invited new bacteria, and made room for it to grow stronger.

Almost 300,000 people a year die from septic blood shock... and this is a major reason why..

So very dumb of you. Please leave this to a dentist, burning a razor with butane.. or dipping a toothpick in alcohol isn't 'sterilized'...

Facepalm. Don't take this idiots advice, if you do, let Darwin take your life.
