An abscessed tooth is a tooth which has developed an infection. There are several symptoms which may indicate an abscess, including:

  • Unexplained tooth sensitivity
  • Extreme sensitivity to hot and cold beverages
  • Intense or recurring tooth pain
  • Difficulty when biting and chewing
  • Bad breath
  • Swelling of the face
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Recurrent signs of fever

If you suspect you may have an abscessed tooth, contact our office as soon as possible to schedule an appointment. Our dentist will examine the area, and if you are diagnosed with an abscess, we will work with you to create a treatment plan that meets your needs. In some cases, an abscessed tooth may be treated with a root canal, though in a more severe case we may recommend extracting the tooth and replacing it.
