Infected Tooth Dentist Near Me, Oklahoma City OK

If regular and proper flossing and brushing do not remove the plaque in your gums or tooth, the bacteria might spread inside the tender tissue of the gums or tooth; this can eventually result in an emergency tooth infection. At our practice, our experienced tooth infection dentists treat tooth infections, an assembly of pus that can form inside the gums, in the teeth, or in the bone that keeps the teeth in place. 

Symptoms of Tooth Infection

Below are symptoms of a tooth infection

  • Pain when touching the concerned area
  • Burden opening the mouth properly
  • A repulsive taste in the mouth
  • Sensitivity to hot or cold consumables

Procedure For Treating An Infected Tooth

In order to treat an infected tooth, our dentist will start by opening up and draining the infected area. Our specialist makes a tiny cut into the area, allowing the pus to deplete out, and then rinse the area with saltwater. 

What’s more, our specialist inserts a little rubber drain to keep the area open for drainage while the swelling reduces. We perform a root canal treatment to help kill the infection and save your tooth. Our specialist drills down your tooth, takes out the pulp and drains the infected area. 

Our experienced team seals and fills the root canals and tooth’s pulp chamber. We might top the tooth with a crown to make it durable, mainly if this is a back tooth. Our dentists pull out the affected tooth if we can not save it, and our specialist will drain the abscess to eliminate the infection. 

If the condition is restricted to the affected area, you might not require antibiotics. But if the infection has started to affect your jaws, nearby teeth, or other parts, our specialist will likely prescribe antibiotics to stop it and limit the spread. Antibiotics are also recommended if you have a weak immune system.
