Sustaining a dental infection is never a pleasant experience. In many cases, symptoms may not occur until things have become very advanced.
By this stage, you may experience symptoms like:
Once we have cleared away the infected matter in the centre of your tooth, these symptoms will no longer stop you from living your daily life. Once the infection is under control, a bespoke tooth-coloured filling or crown can provide the aesthetic restoration the tooth requires. All of our restorations are made with the utmost care. You will find your bite feels natural and that it becomes easy to chew again.
We use the most minimally-invasive techniques to diagnose and carry out your treatment. You should feel very little (if anything) during the process.
The last thing we want is for you to go through the symptoms associated with an infected tooth again in the future. Post-treatment, your dentist here at Smile With Us will explain how you can stop future infections. This could be making some changes to your diet or lifestyle, or attending the dentist or hygienist a little more regularly to avoid decay and cavities, which will otherwise lead to the living tissues inside your teeth from infection.
If you sustained a dental infection due to a blow to the face, appliances like orthodontic mouth guards can provide protection that will stop dental injuries that lead to an infection.BACK TO General Dentistry
