What Is a Dental Abscess?

A tooth abscess is an accumulation of pus produced by a bacterial infection, generally initiating in the soft pulp of the tooth. Some of the causes of tooth abscesses include broken or chipped teeth that lead to infection, weakened enamel that bacteria can bypass easily, and untreated cavities that develop into abscesses.

Common Symptoms of Abscessed Teeth

Early detection and treatment of an abscessed tooth is essential to avoid the dispersal of the infection into other areas and additional complications from arising.

Some cautionary indications of a tooth abscess include signs and symptoms such as:

  • Fever
  • Pain even without chewing food
  • Severe tooth pain
  • Swelling in jaw
  • Bad breath
  • Very sensitive teeth to hot/cold temperature

Dental abscesses can also form in your gums, and in severe cases, the infection can permeate from your tooth root down into the jawbone, increasing the risk of tooth loss and further spread of infection. That’s why it’s important to stay current with your routine dental cleanings and practice good oral hygiene habits at-home.
