Tooth Abscess Treatment

If you are experiencing severe throbbing pain, swelling in the cheek, bad mouth odor, and fever, you may be experiencing the symptoms of a tooth abscess. Left untreated, an abscess can spread, leading to tooth loss and infection that spreads to the mouth tissue, jaw, and even the bloodstream. If you are experiencing these symptoms, we strongly advise you to seek immediate treatment from our endodontic specialist.

Westerville Tooth Abscess Specialist

A dental abscess is a bacteria-filled pocket that develops in your tissue around the tooth, which can start from an untreated cavity, tooth injury or persistent root canal infection. The infection is causing the pain that you are experiencing and, as with any untreated infection, should be addressed quickly to give you relief and get to the root of the issue.

Dr. Bahador will examine your tooth clinically with a radiograph and/or CT scan to identify the location and severity of the dental abscess. A dental abscess can be treated with a root canal or tooth extraction. For some severe conditions, it may require incision and drainage followed by a series of antibiotics to prevent further infection. 

If you are experiencing tooth pain, contact our office today. You can schedule an online appointment or call our office to get scheduled quickly.
