This could be a dangerous thing and you would want to see a dentist immediately. The infection could spread through the soft tissue. Whether you can pull it or not yourself, that is something that you could only answer. I would not try it myself however.

You both need competent medical or dental assistance! Infections need treatment with antibiotics and the right antibiotics. Please don't put off treatment by either a medical doctor or dentist.
Trying to remove teeth yourself is not advised. Many times a root wraps around the bone and you can REALLY injure yourself in a permanent manner. Please do not try this.
Massive jaw bone infections can be the result of self treatment in this manner.
To chrischavez: You need immediate medical assistance. Go to your local emergency room.
My father-in-law was here in america for 6 months and this is his 5th month. All of a sudden from yesterday his cheek was swollen and by reading the previous posts, i am sure it is abscess by listening all of his same symptoms like breaking teeth little by little from 6 months which he didnt told us till now. I do have enough amoxillin 500mg tabs with me. Can i continue them to him and wait till he goes back so that he can pull his teeth over there in india? Shall i add ibrufen to that too? how much mg of ibrufen should i give? Is it ok to travel in flight without pulling this teeth? Is it dangerous? It is too costly for me here which seems like i cant bear it as we had teeth treatments done for me and my husband also this month. His travel insurance people said after all deductables he give 80% of the bill which is again only till 100$. please help me with your valued suggestions... Thankyou MEDHELP!!!!
