Dental Abscess

Treatment for Dental Abscess:

A tooth abscess or dental abscess develops when there is an infection around the root of the tooth and pus builds up. If you think you might have an abscessed tooth, you should seek help of our caring and highly skilled dentists as promptly as possible for treatment. If a tooth abscess is left untreated, it can lead to a serious infection in the jaw bone, teeth and surrounding tissues. Talk to our caring team at 07 3886 0933.

Symptoms of an Abscessed Tooth or Gums

  • You can experience a severe toothache
  • You might feel pain when chewing
  • You might have red, swollen gums or face
  • You can feel a bad taste in your mouth
  • You can get fever or  have a feeling of illness
  • Your teeth might be sensitive to hot or cold food and drink
  • Your glands in the neck can be swollen.
  •  In some cases a swollen upper or lower jaw, which suggests a serious infection

Treatment for Dental Abscesses

Practising good dental care can reduce your risk of a tooth abscess. This includes:

  • brushing your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste
  • using floss or an interdental brush (a small brush for cleaning between your teeth) daily
  • avoiding having too much sugary food and drinks, and limiting them to mealtimes where possible
  • visiting your dentist regularly for check-ups and cleaning

The possible dental treatments for dental abscesses include draining the abscess, antibiotic therapy, root canal therapy, and tooth extraction. However, Root canal therapy, extraction, and periodontal surgery are major procedures that may be recommended for severe infection. A consultation with dentist will help in choosing the right treatment option for individual case. Talk to our team at 07 3886 0933

Emergency Dentist in Kallangur For Advanced Treatment for Dental Abscesses

A tooth abscess is treated to cure the infection and prevent complications, and to save the tooth if possible. If the case is beyond our hands we may refer you to an endodontist, a dentist who specialises in tooth roots.

Let’s understand that the treatment of a tooth abscess depends on the seriousness of patient’s dental health condition. dental abscess treatments include:

  • antibiotics to fight the infection — usually only if the infection is widespread or severe
  • Dentist might have to make a small cut to drain the abscess
  • Dentist might have to perform a root canal treatment, which involves cleaning out the abscess and other material from the root of the tooth, and then filling and sealing it
  • The last option sometimes is tooth removal (extraction), which only happens if you have a severe infection or your tooth can’t be saved. However our first priority is always to save the tooth.

Generally, this has been observed that early treatment can cure the infection and save the tooth.
