How you could be at the risk of getting tooth abscesses

Tooth abscesses are very painful infections on the teeth and around gums. Patients with tooth abscesses can hardly afford to smile because of the awful pain and swellings around the infected areas. If left untreated, a tooth abscess could lead to the destruction of the pulp and loss of teeth. Here is how you could be at the risk of getting teeth abscesses and how to treat it.

Key takeaways:

– Teeth abscesses are caused by severe cavities and teeth-trauma, meaning you are at a higher risk if you smoke or have poor oral health habits.

–  Treatment could either be with root canal therapy, sealing your cavities and tooth removal.

– Symptoms include toothaches, fevers, swollen or red gums, sensitivity and a strange taste in the mouth.
