Tooth abscesses can be a sign of an infection gone wrong. In order to get the proper care for your mouth, you have to know what to look out for when it comes to abscesses.

They can cause further problems later on down the road. Make sure you protect yourself when it comes down to it.

Here are the signs and symptoms of a tooth abscess.

Signs of a Tooth Abscess

•  Sore area around the gum line of the infected tooth
•  Extreme pain in the tooth area
•  Pus coming from the infected area
•  Fever or chills
•  Pressure or tightness around the area

When there is an abscess in the tooth, this can cause a lot of problems. Not only is it extremely painful. It may wake you up at night and you may be in a lot of extreme pain, but it also causes you to have a fever and chills because it is an infection in the tooth.

It is important to speak with a dentist if you expect that you may have a tooth abscess. The quicker the infection is removed, the quicker the tooth can be fixed. This is not only better for your health, but it is also better for the amount of pain that you're in. You shouldn't have to wait to be seen for a serious problem.
