An abscessed tooth is an infection within a tooth that has spread to the root tip or, in many cases, around the root. The infection begins from the tooth's inner cavity, which is called the "pulp chamber”, a place with blood vessels and nerves. In this case, the tooth has basically lost its capacity to fight the infection and bacteria are able to attack the pulp chamber, the last one growing in size noticeably. As the bacteria multiply, the impurity frequently spreads from the tissue room and leaves through the end of the root into the bone. The abscess is a collection of fluid that is made up of dead white blood cells, tissue debris, and germs. As a reminder, you can also receive dental implants in Dubai. It is good to know that our dental clinics in Dubai are properly equipped with high-class technology.
What happens when a dental abscess appears?
A visit to our dentists in Dubai is necessary when these symptoms are unbearable for every patient:
• difficulty swallowing;
• hard to breathe or open the mouth.
If it rests untreated long enough, the infection can spread to the jaw and harm the other teeth and that requires supplementary treatment. The signs frequently found in combination with a dental abscess may contain:
• tenderness with touch;
• gum inflammation;
• deep cavities;
• oral or facial swelling;
• difficulty and pain when opening the mouth.
If the eruption has spread near the tooth, there is normally sensitivity to touch the infected area. Dental abscesses may vary from minor to severe and they may be related to no signs or with bad symptoms. Dental abscesses need to be taken care in our dental clinics in Dubai.
If someone is detecting important symptoms like nausea, gum inflammation or difficulty in swallowing, our dentists in Dubai recommend an urgent visit for a proper treatment. If the infection becomes so aching that it cannot be managed by nonprescription pills, a medical opinion is necessary because drainage might be needed. Our Dubai dentist also recommends to all patients that develop nausea, vomiting, chills or fever, as a result of a dental abscess, not to postpone the visit and accept the treatment and advice.
Dental abscess treatment offered by our dentists in Dubai
In our dental clinic in Dubai, the patients with abscesses will get a first evaluation of the problem and, if necessary, a dental X-ray will be done. This procedure can show the location of the eruption even if we are talking about the deepest part of the tooth. For a serious dental abscess that causes unbearable swelling and pain, our doctors may cut and drain the abscess and also prescribe a therapy with antibiotics. Dental eruptions that are extremely life-threatening may involve hospitalization.
The dentist in Dubai can prescribe medication until the symptoms can be controlled, but this initial measure is often necessary for a temporary pain release. However, additional treatment is needed to eliminate the primary source of infection and then to avoid reappearance. The location of the primary cause of infection determines the final treatment choices, which may contain periodontal treatment, extraction of the tooth or root canal treatment.
