Dental patients 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 dentist. With daily brushing and flossing and regular check-ups and cleanings, you can keep your mouth in peak health.
