Never Ignore an Infected Tooth

Ignoring a mild toothache can have serious consequences. A tooth infection, left untreated, can result in a tooth extraction. When bacteria enter the inner chamber of a tooth, professional help is needed to treat the problem.

In extreme cases, avoiding treatment can allow bacteria from the infected tooth to enter the blood stream and spread to other parts of the body. If toothache leads to fever, nausea or swelling of the face, emergency treatment is required.

Key takeaways:

– A tooth infection can be caused by decay, cracked teeth or untreated gum disease.

– Symptoms can range from mild pain and discomfort, to swelling, aching jaw, bad taste and extreme sensitivity.

– Early identification and treatment of infection can help prevent a tooth extraction.

Getting treatment at the first signs of a problem can minimise the amount of treatment needed. Regular dental checkups are the best way for a dentist to monitor your teeth and gum health so any issues can be diagnosed and treated. If your dental examination is overdue, contact your dentist today.

“Any pain or swelling should be evaluated by your experienced dentist to determine if an infection could be the culprit.”
