Causes of infections and swelling

It is imperative that the mouth is kept clean and healthy, as dental swelling and infection can lead to serious issues.

The main causes of tooth infections can include:

  • Long-standing deep dental decay
  • Gum disease
  • Partially erupted teeth or wisdom teeth
  • Mouth ulcers
  • Underlying medical conditions and deficiencies
  • Trauma to the face

Patients will often need antibiotics or local resolution of the infected area. The prognosis of the offending tooth is often poor with such a high level of infection. Treatment would vary from root canal treatment to simply extracting the tooth and allowing the infection to drain. Prevention is the key with regular checkups and following your dentist’s treatment recommendations.

Book an appointment with the best preventive dentist in Harley District, London. Our tooth infection treatment will relieve you of any pain, discomfort and reduce the risk of swelling.
