Tooth infections are all too often the result of poor oral health, and should be treated immediately. An abscessed tooth is a common form of tooth infections in which the nerve of the tooth becomes infected. This is usually caused by tooth decay that goes untreated; this tooth decay spreads deep within the tooth, causing the painful infection. There are telltale signs if you have a tooth infection like an abscessed tooth. Swelling around the area can occur. Pain when chewing, a constant toothache, or a constant dull pain near or around the tooth are all common signs of tooth infections. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you should seek treatment immediately. Our Rockland County endodontists discuss any symptoms you may be having with you, and examine your teeth to determine whether or not you have a tooth infection, and if so, how serious it is. Ignoring these symptoms is a mistake. Visiting our office and getting a diagnosis is the vital first step to treatment and better oral and overall health.
There are methods and procedures to treat a tooth infection. Root canal therapy is one of the most effective and commonly used treatment options. Root canal therapy is usually pain free. Depending on the severity of the infection, antibiotics may be prescribed in order to prevent the infection from spreading or getting worse.
