Dental Abscess Treatment Warrnambool

A dental abscess is a pus build-up that forms inside the teeth, in the gums, or in the bone that holds the teeth in place, caused by a bacterial infection.

Two types of dental abscesses are periapical and periodontal abscess. An abscess at the end of a tooth is called a periapical abscess.

An abscess forming in the gum is called a periodontal abscess. Dental abscesses are commonly painful but not always. In either case, they should be checked by your dentist.

It’s important to get professional help as soon as possible, as abscesses do not go away on their own. They can sometimes spread to other parts of the body and cause other problems.

Causes of Dental Abscess

Your tooth is hard on the surface, but the inside is filled with a pulp made up of sensitive nerves, connective tissue, and blood vessels.

Sometimes it gets infected. Most often that results from:

Symptoms of Dental Abscess

Symptoms of a dental abscess include:

  • pain when biting or when touched
  • sensitivity to cold or hot foods and drinks
  • foul taste in the mouth
  • fever
  • generally unwell feeling
  • difficulty in opening the mouth and swallowing
  • difficulty in sleeping or insomnia

The main symptom of dental abscesses is throbbing and intense pain.

The pain usually begins suddenly and becomes more intense over time.

In some cases, the pain may spread to the ear, jawbone, and neck.

Treatment for Dental Abscess

While pain and swelling are the most common signs, you may not show any symptoms. That means the pus pocket has found somewhere else to drain.

If you don’t have any of the abovementioned symptoms, your Warrnambool dentist can detect an abscess through X-rays at a routine examination. He may tap on your tooth to see if it hurts.

Dental Abscess Prevention

Follow these simple steps to keep your teeth and gums healthy:

  • Get regular dental check-ups and scale and cleans.
  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day for two minutes each time, with fluoride toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush.
  • Floss once daily to clean hard-to-reach spots between your teeth and gums.
  • Book an appointment with your dentist immediately if you have a loose or cracked tooth.
  • Limit sugary and acidic food (and drinks) intake. Sweets and sodas can lead to cavities, which cause an abscess.
  • Cut down on snacking between meals.

We are here to help you answer these & more questions thoroughly.
