How To Tell A Dental Abscess From An Infection

12th / September / 2017

Pain is a symptom of both teeth abscesses and infections, so how can you tell them apart?

Key takeaways:

  • A tooth infection develops when some kind of trauma or decay results in a dead nerve within the tooth
  • Abscesses can form a lump in the gums as well as swelling.
  • Infections are treated with root canal; abscesses may require extraction and drainage.

If in doubt, the best thing is to see your dentist so he can put a stop to the spread of infection.
