Are you experiencing severe tooth pain? You may be suffering from an abscessed tooth. An abscessed tooth can be caused by periodontal disease, accident or tooth decay and causes a painful, continuous toothache. An abscessed tooth can also cause:
- Trouble eating without pain
- Temperature sensitivity in the teeth
- Swelling in the gums and lymph nodes
- Halitosis, or chronic bad breath
- Sores along the gumline
- Continuous bitter aftertaste
If you are suffering from these symptoms, come to Drs. Huber, Pelkey & Associates for treatment.
Dr. Steven Huber, Dr. Samuel Pelkey and Associates will be able to treat your tooth and relieve your symptoms. If symptoms are not addressed, the damage may worsen and spread beyond the root of the tooth and affect the dental pulp or even the jawbone. Depending on the condition of the tooth, our dentists may recommend several different treatments. Root canal therapy is a common way to remove infected tissue. Ultimately, if the tooth cannot be saved, an extraction may be necessary.
