Typically, when a tooth gets an infection is it due to bacterial contamination of the root pulp. The bacteria make their way through the tooth structure and eventually enter the pulp of the tooth. The pulp of the tooth is integrated into the blood stream of your ENTIRE body, thus we don’t want to allow these VIRULENT bacteria to cause you damage!
An abscess is where there is a proliferation of bacteria causing damage at the tip of the tooth root. Abscesses keep multiplying in the bone of your upper or lower jaw. This process is very painful and causes pain, swelling, and a general lethargic feeling.
