Young adult with a potential dental infection.

Your mouth is susceptible to a plethora of infections in every space. Left untreated, dental infections can lead to potentially life-threatening complications.


Being proactive is the number one defense against dental infections. This means you need to follow these two pieces of sage advice:

  • Take care of your mouth and teeth as we have indicated elsewhere

  • Make sure and see us every 6 months, without fail.


If you have any of these symptoms, you may have a dental infection:

  • Swollen gums, jaw, or glands of the neck

  • Fever

  • Severe & persistent toothache

  • Foul smelling breath

  • Bitter taste in mouth

  • Teeth sensitivity to hot or cold, or sensitivity to the pressure of chewing


Treatment of a dental infection needs to be initiated as soon as possible.


Treatments can include:

  • Root canal

  • Incise and drain abscess

  • Pull affected/infected tooth

  • Antibiotics

  • Pain relievers (NSAID’s help reduce inflammation … always take with food). We will advise the strength you could take.

  • Rinse your mouth with warm water and salt. You can also ice your face.

  • Avoid smoking and drinking alcohol, as well as consuming hot, spicy or acidic foods.
