No One is Obsessed With a Tooth Abscess
January 25, 2014

When you suffer from a tooth abscess, you will suffer, literally. The pain from the bacteria infection is often severe, and it can keep you from getting a good night's sleep, in addition to stopping you from completing work at the office during the day. You could fall victim to a tooth abscess at any time, so it is best to be prepared in case it happens.

When you have a tooth cavity, it can cause an infection, known as an abscess. When bacteria grows a pus pocket will form. There is no specific region where an abscess can occur. There are various symptoms that can alert you that a tooth abscess has arrived. Some of those signs include:

•  Red Face and Mouth
•  Swelling
•  Tenderness
•  Gum Inflammation
•  Pus Drainage
•  Pain&hellip
•  and lots of it.

You can rinse your mouth out with warm water if you are suffering from a dental abscess. To treat the pain, you can purchase naproxen or ibuprofen, but these anti-inflammatory medicines will provide a small – if any – amount of relief. The pain may stop temporarily, but the infection is still alive and well. You will need to consult with a dentist as soon as possible to treat your infection, and get you back to work, and resting without issue during the night.

Keep in mind that if a tooth abscess goes untreated, it could lead to a more severe dental issue. This condition can spread, and cause you to become extremely ill. Some individuals who do not treat their tooth abscess have had to be hospitalized.
