Treatment of Tooth Abscess

Treatment of Tooth AbscessWhen many individuals think about their mouth and painful dental treatments, they are often thinking of any of the countless procedures that take place around the root and pulp of the teeth. These places are extremely sensitive and past treatments or misconceptions in media have made countless patients wary of them. This is why our dentist in Northridge believes that all patients should remain aware of how these conditions begin and the painless and effective procedures that can be used to treat them.

One of the most common results of serious damage to the teeth is a tooth abscess. While every mouth is filled with good and bad bacteria, the teeth and gums protect the sensitive areas. If the bacteria reach the pulp or roots, it may cause an infection that turns into a buildup of puss and eventually leads to a tooth abscess.

If left untreated, these abscesses can become extremely painful. This is why all patients should immediately contact our office to discuss what options may be available to them to remove the bacteria, clear away the abscess, and protect the tooth. For many patients, the best option is going to be root canal treatment that can be carried out under powerful anesthesia to make the treatment as quick and painless as possible.

The best way to avoid this painful condition is by scheduling checkups with our dentist at least twice a year in which we can check the integrity of the teeth. Contact our office today to preserve your smile and the health of your mouth.
