Infected teeth will often show the following symptoms:
- Throbbing & persistent toothache
- Sensitivity to hot & cold foods
- Swelling of the face and/or gums
- Pain or pressure when chewing
Depending on the severity of the infection, our dentist may prescribe you antibiotics or decide to have the tooth extracted. If the tooth can be saved it might require a root canal (endodontics) or gum treatment (periodontics). If you have any questions regarding tooth infections or show any symptoms, please contact us today for an appointment!
