This is a very serious condition and requires immediate treatment due to the pain and swelling related to it.  

Dental Abscess Self Test

    A tooth that is cracked or has a deep cavity can cause damage to the pulp and nerve that are located in the innermost part of your tooth resulting in infection (abscess).

Abscess is a pocket of pus that forms at the tips of your tooth root.  

        If uncared for you can increase your risk to systemic infection, infecting other areas of your mouth, those you love and eventually could loss the valuable tooth.

     This condition may be able to be treated with root canal therapy, if caught in time,  which safely saves the tooth by cleaning out the infected area and the damaged pulp.
