Dental Abscesses

A tooth abscess or dental abscess, is an accumulation of excess pus that forms inside the gums. This is characterized by swelling on gums and severe pain. There are basically 3 types of dental abscess:

  • Gingival abscess
  • Periodontal abscess
  • Periapical abscess

This can be easily treated by a filling or root canal treatment depending on the findings on an x-ray report.
