What is a dental abscess?
It is a swelling that is caused in the mouth or face due to a bacterial infection. This could be due to a problem with your gums or a problem in your actual teeth. The swelling can be very painful and in some cases it can actually be life threatening if it spread to your throat. If you have a dental abscess then you should contact us or another dentist as soon as possible. Sometimes they can be treated with a course of antibiotics but in many cases there is an underlying cause which needs to be treated to ensure the abscess does not return.
If you have a dental emergency or would simply like to register with our practice then please contact us on 0141 641 2107.
