13 Signs You Have a TOXIC Tooth Infection and How to Treat it Without Going to the Dentist!
The term an abscessed tooth refers to an infection at the root of a tooth or between the gum and a tooth.
It leads to severe tooth decay and can be a result of bacteria that enter the tooth (through a dental cavity, chip, or crack) and spreads down to the root tip.
The most common causes include high-sugar diets, poor dental hygiene, gingivitis, severe tooth decay, and sticky foods.
An abscessed tooth might cause numerous complications if left untreated, such as inflammation and pain.
It loses the ability to fight infections which can reach the pulp chamber of the tooth, and when the root tooth dies, the pain is reduced.
Yet, this does not mean that the infection is gone, as it might spread and affect the surrounding tissue.
In the worst case, it might spread to the bone that supports the tooth and leads to severe life-threatening complications.
Symptoms of an abscessed tooth are: pain when chewing food, bad breath, sharp and throbbing toothaches, sore and red gums, cheek swelling, difficulty swallowing food, fever, swollen lymph nodes and discomfort in the pained area.
You should visit your dentist immediately to receive medical help, but if you want an all natural route, you can use these effective natural remedies.
