Dental Abscess in Tampa, Winter Haven, Plant City, Temple Terrace, Davis Islands & Neighboring Cities
A dental abscess is a bacterial infection that manifests in either the tip of the tooth root or the surrounding gum tissue. This condition is often considered a dental emergency, and if left untreated, it can result in serious, and even life threatening, complications.
Most often caused by an untreated cavity, poor dental hygiene or a high sugar diet, a tooth abscess can lead to great discomfort. Symptoms include:
- Severe, consistent tooth pain
- Jaw pain
- Swollen lymph nodes
- Facial swelling
If you suffer from any of the above symptoms, you might very well indeed have a dental abscess, and if you find yourself with oral pain, facial swelling and a fever, you should consider this a dental emergency and see your dentist as soon as possible. If you are unable to see a dentist, a trip to the ER may be in order.
