An infected tooth or gum disease can lead to a dental abscess, a painful swelling at the root of the tooth. An abscess needs immediate attention from your dentist.
– A dentist will need to drain the abscess of the pus and other matter within it prior to any treatment.
– If the tooth infection was from infected nerve tissue in the tooth root canal therapy may be required.
– Sometimes a tooth extraction may be necessary and your dentist may then suggest a replacement to prevent shifting teeth.
“When a dental abscess is present, the infected pulp will need to be removed and the tooth sealed in order to fix the issue and stop the infection from returning.”
