|When a dental abscess is a concern, it is very important that you seek out the help needed from our office to remove the infection and reduce the chances of having the tooth completely removed. A dental abscess is an infection in the gum under the teeth, and when this is a problem, you need to have it examined by our office as soon as possible.
The Symptoms to Pay Attention To
When you have symptoms of a dental abscess, make sure to pay attention to them and take care of them. If you notice any of these symptoms, ensure that you speak with our office as soon as possible. We need to provide you with the antibiotics needed.
If you are experiencing extreme pain in any area of the mouth, we think of this as a dental emergency and want you to call us. If you are experiencing a fever, then this is definitely a dental emergency. Pain and fever are two serious symptoms to pay attention to, because you need to ensure that you're getting the help needed.
There may be other symptoms such as a nasty taste in the mouth, pus that might be coming from the gums, or a large lump on the side or inside the gum by the tooth. This can cause a problem for the tooth if it is something that is not taken care of. Death can even be possible by not calling us right away.
It is important to speak with our office as soon as possible to find out more about the dental abscess that you might have. We need to assess the situation and ensure that you are getting the help needed when the time comes. Call us today, don't let the abscess get too far. We can provide the help needed!
