An abscess is a swollen area filled with pus; typically, it is caused by an infection or gum disease. An abscess usually forms at the bottom of an infected tooth and can be extremely painful. It usually requires immediate attention from a dentist.
The treatment involves:
– Draining the abscess and prescribing a course of antibiotics
– Drain the abscess and providing root canal surgery
