The Dental Abscess.
Many people have a long standing tooth ache, which they try to ignore, resolve with over the counter medications, or just don’t have the time to have it treated. The results of an untreated dental infection and abscess can be severe.
The number of people treated for serious dental infections in the hospital is rising, according to a study published in the September 2013 issue of the Journal of Endodontic’s. This fact alone is alarming. An untreated dental infection is an epicenter for bacterial infection into our blood circulation. As we live busy lives, we may not find time to take care of our toothaches, but the results of a dental bacterial infection is profound.
Moreover, what may be a relatively straight-forward procedure can end up being more time consuming and costly if we wait to long. As we avoid getting the broken or fractured tooth fixed, the tooth in question can decay further and can, sometimes, mean by the time we seek dental care, the tooth is not savable.
At Family Dentistry of Frisco: Laser, Sedation, and Implant Center, we use state of the art laser activated irrigations PIPS, to clean root canal systems. We provide all ceramic life-like restorations to help restore that damaged tooth back to a natural radiance.
If you are anxious, we offer many forms of dental sedation options to help manage your dental anxiety.
