Dental infections are most commonly caused by untreated decay or dental cracks. Any time that bacteria have a way to penetrate tooth enamel, an infection can set in.

So, any tooth that is compromised has the potential to develop a serious infection.

Dental infection can cause sharp tooth pain and always requires treatment by a dentist. Delayed treatment ultimately results in further complications so we recommend that you contact us today.

Don’t suffer through the pain

Visit our office today so we can carefully guide you to the best treatment solution for your condition.

We want to get you out of pain and back to the life you enjoy.

When you or a loved one have mouth pain, mouth trauma, or suspect a dental emergency, you need prompt, effective treatment. Issues like swelling, a cracked, missing, or a loose tooth, or jaw discomfort often lead to more serious conditions. Fast treatment will prevent future discomfort and save you time and money.

What are Dental Infection Symptoms?

The primary symptom of dental infection is tooth pain. Surprisingly, the pain doesn’t always stay within the infected tooth. Pain and sensitivity can extend throughout your mouth and even into your gums, jaw, ear, neck, and face.

In addition to experiencing pain, other symptoms include sensitivity to cold or hot, discomfort from pressure, mouth tenderness, and swelling—both inside and outside the mouth.

Sinus infections are sometimes caused by underlying dental infections. If you are experiencing tenderness around your forehead, behind your eyes, or surrounding your nose and have accompanying tooth pain, you may be showing dental sinus infection symptoms. It’s important to visit Kansas City Dental ER as soon as possible.

In some cases, you can experience a tooth infection without feeling any symptoms at all. A dentist can still diagnose an infection through an exam and routine X-rays.

What if I Don’t Get Help For My Dental Infection?

An untreated infection can lead to a tooth abscess which is almost always recognized by mouth or facial swelling. An abscess is a serious condition that when left untreated can become life-threatening. The sooner you receive dental care for a suspected infection, the more potential problems you can avoid.

When you visit our office for emergency care, we’ll take the time to answer your questions with care and honesty, helping you build trust with our staff. Our aim is to guide you into optimal dental health so that you can live without pain and enjoy your smile. We’ll treat your emergency situation today in a way that earns your trust and helps you feel comfortable coming back for routine dental care.

It’s easy to get help today:

  1. Call for an appointment or walk-in
  2. We’ll provide fast, affordable solutions
  3. You’ll be pain-free again in no time

Do I Need Antibiotics for a Dental Infection?

We may prescribe antibiotics for a dental infection, depending on your specific condition. The type of antibiotic, dosing, and length of treatment are all determined during your dental examination.

Is Facial Swelling a Sign of Dental Abscess?

A dental abscess is a pus pocket that forms inside your mouth. It’s often characterized by facial swelling or swelling of the cheeks or lymph glands. The swelling in your face may appear suddenly or gradually increase over time. While there are other causes of facial swelling, it’s important to see your dentist if you experience this symptom.

Is a Dental Infection the Same as an Abscess?

Both conditions are serious. A dental infection can lead to a tooth abscess but not all infections are abscesses. An abscess is a pocket of pus that develops inside your mouth that causes pain and swelling.
