Dental Abscess

Home » Treatments » Dental Abscess
Dental abscess is an infection caused by bacteria that develops deep in a damaged tooth that has a large cavity or crack. In rare cases, if a patient does not receive treatment a dental abscess can be life threatening. It requires immediate treatment as the infection can spread from the tooth and throughout the entire the body.
