Abscessed Tooth

An abscessed tooth can be an extremely painful situation needing emergency dental care.

What Is An Abscessed Tooth?

An abscessed tooth is a pocket of pus, most often caused by an infection and spread of bacteria from the root of the tooth to the tissue just below or near the tooth.

A tooth that has become abscessed is a condition where the underlying pulp (the tooth’s soft core) has become infected or swollen. The pulp contains nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue, and lies within the tooth. It extends from the crown of the tooth, to the tip of the root, in the bone of the jaws.

Treatment of Abscessed Tooth

One treatment is the use of antibiotics to kill the infection. If antibiotics are not effective and the abscess is damaging the pulp or lower bony structures of the tooth, a root canal procedure may be needed to remove the dead pulp and restore the tooth to a healthy state.
