Is a boil on the gums automatically a abscess?

I have a what I would call a boil on my gum by my top tight molara. I brush my teeth about 2-4 times a day with the correct tooth brush and gently floss constantly. And mouth wash. Do I have a full blow life threatening abscess?


no it doesn't


If it was an abscess you would be in agony. try using a medicated mouthwash. It could shrink and go away.
