Definition of tooth abscess
Tooth abscess is, in fact, a collection of pus at the basis of the tooth which is determined by the body’s fight against certain bacteria. Tooth abscesses have various causes: untreated cavities, gum disease, accumulation of food particles between the gum and the tooth, etc.
Symptoms of tooth abscess
Most common symptoms are: pulsating pain, red swollen gums, a bump similar to a pimple representing the abscess. There could also be generalised symptoms such as fever or pain which radiates in the neck or the head. Once the infection progresses, pain becomes less intense, which is not a sign of healing.
Diagnosis of tooth abscess
It is recommended to visit immediately a dentist for a correct diagnosis. At the same time, you can thus prevent complications or avoid empirical therapies which lead to a temporary disappearance of the symptoms or, worse, can lead to the latent development of infection.
