The Problems with Infected Teeth

Dental abscesses are somewhat common, and they come with a series of symptoms that are normally seen in mostly everyone that has them. The bump on the side of the gums or in the tooth, the pain in that area that is usually unbearable, and the fever that comes along with this are all just some of the symptoms.

A dental abscess is an infection inside the gum and tooth of the person. This is something that needs to be dealt with as soon as possible, as an infection in the mouth can travel to other places of the body. This can become an issue with the person if they become very sick, and it can also be deadly.

Speak with the professionals in our office to find out the next steps to take and what can be done. We want to provide the help you need, especially when an infection is present.
