Rush to an Emergency Dentist for this Major Dental Danger

dentist emergency phone

If you don’t take severe tooth pain seriously, you may be putting your life in danger. That’s because this pain is a telltale sign that you have a dental abscess. Discover how to protect yourself from this critical condition.

Why You Can’t Ignore a Dental Abscess

Many people have never heard of a dental abscess or know about the risks. An abscess is a pus-filled infection either inside the tooth or in between the tooth and gums. It’s caused from bacteria that have seeped into the tooth’s protective enamel. The first sign is typically mild pain that quickly becomes intense. Soon after, you will quickly start to experience other major dental problems. You must take an abscess very seriously and if you can’t reach your regular dentist, you must get to an emergency dentist for treatment. As soon as you notice any of the following symptoms, immediately seek emergency dental services Atlanta:

  • Persistent, throbbing pain in mouth
  • Sharp, sudden pains around teeth and gums
  • Swollen face, jaw, or neck glands
  • Tender, swollen gums
  • Sensitivity to hot, cold, and pressure
  • Difficulty chewing
  • Fever
  • Very bad breath

The Reason to Rush to an Emergency Dentist

Since a dental abscess can’t heal on its own, you need to get it treated right away. If you don’t quickly seek emergency dental services Atlanta, the severe infection can spread very quickly and actually threaten your health. As soon as you notice any of the symptoms, you need to rush to an emergency dentist Atlanta to possibly save your life.

5 Ways to Prevent a Dental Abscess

But developing an abscess doesn’t have to happen to you. If you practice good oral hygiene and get regular professional care, you can avoid having to rush to an emergency dentist Atlanta with an abscess. Follow these five simple steps to protect yourself from this problem:

  1. Brush your teeth at least twice a day.
  2. Floss every day.
  3. Get dental checkups and cleanings every six months, or as recommended by your dentist.
  4. Eat a healthy diet.
