What Are Treatment Options for an Abscessed Tooth?

A tooth suffering from an extensive fracture or extreme decay may develop infection. When the infection reaches the interior of the tooth, it can create an abscess. This video explains how dentists treat abscessed teeth.

Root canal therapy is the primary way of addressing an abscess. During a root canal, a dentist can remove the infected tissues of the tooth interior with small files. As the damaged nerve endings and blood vessels are cleared from the tooth canal, pressure on the tooth roots and nearby bone tissue alleviates. Antibiotics can eliminate any lingering traces of infection. If the abscess has already damaged the tooth roots, a dentist may instead advise tooth extraction.

Oak Creek Dental Care provides safe and comfortable root canal services for the residents of Columbus, Ohio. For more information on our treatment options, call (614) 882-5525 today.
