What is abscessed tooth?

An abscessed tooth is a kind of infection in and around the tooth. This condition of your tooth is actually painful and it could spread to other parts of the body so quickly if left untreated. Untreated abscesses even result in death.

What are its effects?

An abscessed tooth can cause more than just a toothache. They exhibit numerous effects on other teeth and even on the health of the patient. Let’s have a look at its side-effects!

  • Drainage around the tooth
  • Foul smell to the breathe
  • Sensitivity of teeth to cold or hot
  • Bitter taste in the mouth
  • Swollen neck glands, gums or face
  • General discomfort, fever, uneasiness, or ill feeling
  • Pain when pressure is applied to the tooth
  • A draining sore found within the gums
  • Throbbing pain, may radiate to the jaw
  • A swelling inside your mouth that may have a discharge

How it is treated?

The targets of treatment are to cure the infection, save natural teeth and to prevent further complications. An abscessed tooth cannot get better on its own. Only a dentist can treat an abscessed tooth by draining the pus and removing or treating infected tooth.

Antibiotics are often prescribed to fight the infection. Warm salt-water can be soothing. Over-the-counter medications can relieve the toothaches and fever associated with dental abscesses.

If the abscess is inside of your tooth, root canal treatment is usually recommended. This involves removing infected part of tooth and filling is inserted into space to avoid further infection. This leaves tooth abscessed patients with natural looking smiles.

If there is a severe tooth infection, surgery is required to drain the abscess and sometimes tooth may be removed.
