Dental patients in the New York area may wonder what would happen if they didn’t seek quality dental care on a regular basis. The answer isn’t pretty.
A common result of untreated cavities are abscesses. A tooth abscess is an infection near the root of the tooth or between the gum and the tooth. This collection of pus can be very uncomfortable, either causing a shooting pain or a dull throbbing pain. You may also experience bad breath, fever, swollen neck glands, and feelings of general discomfort associated with the infection.
Tooth abscesses can also be caused by a chip or a crack in the tooth that allows bacteria to enter.
To avoid unpleasant dental problems like abscesses, have regular visits with your North Bay, East Smithtown, or South Melville dentist. With daily brushing and flossing and regular check-ups and cleanings, you can keep your mouth in peak health.
