Would you be surprised to hear that there are a few things you should do if you’re interested in protecting your oral health? For example, brushing and flossing are crucial parts of improving your oral health. If you don’t do these simple things, you might have to deal with issues like tooth decay, but had you heard that an unaddressed cavity may spread and lead to more serious issues, including an abscess?

For example, tooth decay might ultimately reach the center of your tooth. If this happens, you could need root canal therapy to preserve your tooth your tooth. Bacteria will also be able to affect the center of your teeth more easily if you have a deep cavity. This may leave you susceptible to an abscess, which might lead to a painful pocket of pus. While this may not seem like a very serious problem, would you be surprised to hear that an abscess could actually cause a number of complications? For instance, if you have an abscess, you could have a strange taste in your mouth, a fever, or discomfort when chew. If you’re worried about an abscess, please give us a call as soon as you can.
