Are you concerned that you may have an infected tooth? By calling an emergency dentist, you can preserve the functioning and appearance of your smile.
A dental abscess can form on the gums, roots, or sides of the teeth. As the infection grows, it results in a pocket of pus within the tooth. Since it stays within the tooth or surrounding tissues, there’s nowhere for it to drain from. This can cause pimples or boils near the infection. If the bacteria spread, this could lead to the loss of one or more teeth. A dentist can perform a root canal treatment to drain the infection and remove damaged tissues.
