What you should know about tooth abscesses

If your smile is important to you, don’t ignore the signs and symptoms of a possible tooth abscess. This painful infection can occur both in and around a tooth. If you have damaged your teeth or have dental cavities, you are more prone to an abscess because bacteria can access the tooth and cause infection.

If you allow the infection to continue, it can spread and may mean that the tooth has to be removed.

Key takeaways

– See your dentist if you experience toothache or pain when eating

– See your dentist if you experience fever or have a “funny” taste in your mouth

– Red and swollen gums can indicate gum disease and also an abscess

Your dentist might be able to clear the infection using root canal therapy and save the tooth.

“Tooth abscesses can be extremely painful and also could put you at risk to lose your tooth.”
