The Dangers of Tooth Infection
Did you know that a tooth can become so extremely infected that your tooth ends up full of bacteria, swollen, painful and filled with pus? To be honest, it is not the most incredible feeling in the world, but we stand ready to give you the assistance needed to solve your tooth infection. An abscessed tooth is caused by bacterial infection that has spread to the soft inner core of your tooth (that's the pulp) where the blood vessels, nerves, and tissues are located. The pulp runs from root to crown and when infected can be very painful. We may prescribe antibiotics in an effort to alleviate the infection. If antibiotics fail and your abscess is causing further damage, we will recommend a root canal; a process in which the infected pulp is removed and your tooth is restored to health!
