Attacking a Tooth Abscess in Colchester

Some conditions come and go in your mouth and can be treated with the minimum of fuss to maintain the health of your mouth. There are some though that can’t be taken lightly and are quite dangerous, a tooth abscess being the perfect example. All things that go wrong in your mouth start with a combination of poor oral hygiene and the build up of plaque. This then turns into nasty things like tooth decay and gum disease, then things get really nasty when the abscess forms. Your face will swell violently and you will suffer extreme pain, but don’t believe for a second that this is the end of it. During the eruption of an abscess, very sinister toxins will be leaked into your body via the bloodstream and can become life-threatening. The only way to fight this problem is to seek immediate help, if not from a dentist, then from a hospital. Before the problem behind all this can be treated, you will need to be pumped with antibiotics to neutralise the poisons and then bring down the swelling. Only then can your dentist in Colchester set about fixing you up again. Be warned though- and the Advance Dental Clinic in Chelmsford can tell you all about this, you get one abscess and the chances are that others will follow on and re-offend and at this juncture, only an extraction will stop the threat.
