What to Do If Your Tooth Gets an Infection


Posted on 10/23/2016 by Century Dental LLC
A woman suffering from a painful infection.
You probably know how easy it is to develop an infection in the soft tissues of your body. But did you know that your teeth can also develop infections?

What's worse, because you may not be able to detect the infections as easily, they can last longer and be more severe before you do find them.

Symptoms Of An Infected Tooth


If you have any of the following symptoms, you may have a tooth that has become infected.

•  A tooth that is leaking pus or other fluid.
•  A tooth that has become overly sensitive to heat, cold, or air.
•  A tooth that hurts when you are chewing.
•  Gum tissue around the tooth is red or swollen.
•  The gum tissue around a tooth may have an open sore or an unexplained bump.
•  A funny taste in your mouth.
•  Unexplained severe bad breath.

If you have any of these symptoms, or if you have an ache in your jawbone near a tooth, there is a good chance that you have an infected tooth.

Come See Us Right Away
If you think you may have an infected tooth you need to come see us immediately. Don't wait for your next cleaning appointment, and don't try to self-medicate in the hopes that it will go away. An infected tooth can lead to other serious health issues, so you can't afford to wait.

There are several different ways we can treat the infected tooth, but we need to see you first and examine it. We may take an X-ray to let us look inside. Whatever the eventual course of treatment, we can't get started until you come see us, so please do not delay!

We're here to help you get your healthy smile back, so contact us today!
