Abscessed Tooth in Brandon, Riverview, Bloomingdale & Surrounding Regions

Abscessed ToothWe know that an abscessed tooth is a very painful infection at the root of a tooth or between a tooth and the gum. Its most common cause is severe tooth decay. Other causes of an abscessed tooth are tooth trauma, such as when a tooth is chipped or broken, gingivitis or gum disease. These problems often cause openings in your tooth enamel, allowing bacteria to infect the tooth’s center (pulp). Infection can also spread from a tooth root to the bones supporting the teeth.

Here’s where Dental Associates of Florida come in. To eliminate infection, the abscessed tooth may have to be drained. Complete drainage is accomplished through the tooth by a process known as root canal therapy. Root surgery is also recommended to remove diseased root tissue after the infection has gotten better. Then, a crown may be placed over it if desired.

We have restorative dentists, endodontists, periodontists and other specialties to take care of your abscessed tooth immediately. We offer many other types of dental services including:

Wisdom teeth, commonly the third molars in the back of the mouth, are removed routinely, especially in young adults. Removing a wisdom tooth is a great relief, if you are experiencing tooth decay, crowding the teeth, frequent infections, general pain or headaches related to the eruption of wisdom teeth.
