Abscessed Tooth – Defined

In order to prevent tooth infections, practicing oral hygiene is essential. Tooth infections are also called tooth or root abscess. The pulp contains the blood vessels, the nerves and connective tissue inside a tooth and provides the tooth’s blood and nutrients. Tooth infection occurs due to the bacterial activity on the tooth. There are many other causes of tooth infection.

Tooth infections can sometimes escalate into life-threatening conditions. If left untreated, the infection in an abscessed tooth can spread to the blood stream then to the brain or other vital organs causing a much more serious condition.
