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.
