Dental abcesses

Dental abcesses

When pus develops along the teeth and spreads nearby tissues like the gums and mucous membranes of the mouth, the patient is said to have a dental abscess. This condition is characterized by pain, swelling, bleeding of the gums, toothache and tenderness of the gum area. A visit to the dentist is a must; a dentist will prescribe antibiotics to reduce infection and pain medications to treat pain. Dental treatments are postponed until the infection and the abscess have subsided.
