Title: Dental Clinic in Delhi : Dental Courses in India

The Abscessed Tooth
An abscess is an infection in or around the root
of the tooth which may or may not be painful.
It's most commonly caused by severe tooth decay.
Other causes of tooth abscess are trauma to the
tooth, such as when it is broken or chipped,
and gingivitis or gum disease. These problems
can cause openings into the tooth enamel, which
allows bacteria to infect the center of the tooth
also called the pulp. The infection may also
spread from the root of the tooth to the bones
supporting the tooth.

  • Poor dental hygiene. Not taking proper care of
    your teeth and gums can increase
  • your risk of tooth decay, gum disease, tooth
    abscess, and other dental complications.

  • and sodas, can contribute to dental cavities and
    turn into a tooth abscess.

  • infection may.
  • spread to your jaw and to other areas of your
    head and neck.

    life-threatening infection that spreads
  • your body.

    risk of a spreading infection increases
  • even more.
  • A Periapical abscess occurs at the tip of the
    root, whereas a periodontal abscess occurs in
  • the gums.
  • next to a tooth root. The information here
    refers specifically to Periapical abscesses.

  • Frequently Asked Questions
  • What is Periapical tooth abscess?
  • A Periapical tooth abscess occurs when bacteria
    invade the innermost part of the tooth that
    contains blood
  • vessels, nerves and connective tissue (pulp).
    Bacteria enter through a dental cavity or down to
    the root. The
  • bacterial infection can cause swelling and
    inflammation at the tip of the root which is
    called Periapical abscess.
  • 2. How can an abscess tooth be diagnosed?
  • If you have an abscessed tooth, you will feel
    pain when the tooth is tapped by your dentist's
    probe. In addition, because your gums may be
    swollen and red, your dentist may suspect an
    abscessed tooth.

  • What are the treatment options for abscess tooth?
  • Root surgery is generally recommended to remove
    diseased root tissue after the infection has
    subsided. After that, a crown may be placed over
    the tooth.
  • Other option is extraction of infected tooth,
    allowing drainage through the socket.
  • Lastly, a third way would be by incision into the
    swollen gum tissue.
  • How can abscess be prevented?
  • Maintaining good oral hygiene can reduce the risk
    of developing a tooth abscess. Also, seek prompt
    dental attention, if your teeth experience any
    trauma (for example, become loosened or chipped)

  • When is the right time to seek a dentist?
  • If you have fever and swelling around your face,
    immediately book an appointment with a dentist.
  • These symptoms may indicate that the infection
    has spread deeper into your jaw and also in the
    surrounding tissue or even to other areas of your
  • This condition needs proper assessment and
    treatment plan so it is prevented from becoming
    serious condition in future.
