Infections are no fun
…but we can help
Do you think you have a dental infection? A dental infection is when bacteria in the mouth makes its way to the nerve of the tooth. When the bacteria gets there it slowly kills the nerve causing you severe tooth pain. This pain is spontaneous, severe, and can wake you up in the middle of the night. This bacteria continues to multiply in the nerve canal. Eventually the pain will go away but the infection is still there, still growing. Eventually the infection will escape from the tooth and cause an abscess around the tooth and can even cause your face to swell. Dental infections are very serious because this bacteria leaks out into the bloodstream and is linked to heart attack, stroke, and diabetes. Treating a dental infection involves a root canal or a dental extraction.
