The article offers information on the treatment of swelling of the lip region and abscesses in the chin region. When the abscess develops at the apex, the patient can be relieved with a Schroeder ventilation. When the abscess penetrates the periosteum and enters the soft tissue, soft tissue swelling occurs. This phase of abscessing in the lateral tooth is called parulis. The abscess of the chin can be treated with chlorethyl alcohol. It is stated that adequate diagnosis for swellings of the anterior tooth region is necessary.
