  • You have not mentioned whether you are taking any antibiotics or not for the abcessed tooth. If you are not taking then go to the dentist and get the proper medication. No, it will not effect your eye, as the nerve supply for the eye and the tooth is different. You should get it pulled out when the infection subsides as with infection the anaesthesia is not very effective.
