Abscesses typically manifest as painfultoothaches and can also darken the colour of the infected tooth. Aswell as being painful, the can make eating a lot less pleasurable.What’s more, they can be a cause of bad breath, leaving you feelingreally down in the dumps.
The sooner an abscess gets treatment, the better. Left unattended,it’s likely to spread infection elsewhere in the mouth; this is wherethe root canal treatment comes in.
