It is essential that you seek treatment as soon as you notice symptoms. If the infection becomes too severe, it will begin to affect surrounding tissues and eventually result in tooth loss.
Attending your bi-annual dental cleanings and exams is one of the best ways to ensure that an infection is treated in the earliest stages. During these appointments, your dentist can check for any signs of infection and protect the healthy portion of the tooth.
If you are experiencing pain or sensitivity, or if you have not undergone a professional checkup recently, we encourage you to schedule a consultation.
