Swelling – Abscess – Tooth Ache

If a cavity is left untreated it will eventually turn into a full blown infection of the tooth, jaw and surrounding tissue. At this point you may be experiencing swelling, foul taste or smell coming from your mouth and extreme tooth pain. This pain often prevents you from eating or chewing on the affected side. And it may also prevent you from getting a good nights rest. Whatever the case you need to be seen immediately to assess what can be done to get you out of pain. If swelling ever feels like it is affecting your ability to breath seek immediate medical attention. Or it is recommended that you go to the nearest emergency room.
