Dental patients in the Alexandria area may wonder what would happen when they don’t seek quality dental care regularly. The answer isn’t pretty. If you are looking for quality dental care, come visit us here at Centreville Dental Wellness Center. Doctor Rena Vakay has been a dentist in Centreville since 2011.
A common result of untreated cavities is abscesses. A tooth abscess is an infection near the root of the tooth or between the gum and the tooth. This collection of pus can be very uncomfortable, either causing a shooting pain or a dull throbbing pain. You may also experience bad breath, fever, swollen neck glands, and feelings of general discomfort associated with the infection.
Tooth abscesses can also be caused by a chip or a crack in the tooth that allows bacteria to enter.
To avoid unpleasant dental problems like abscesses, have regular visits with your Chantilly, Fairfax, or Gainesville dentist. With daily brushing and flossing and regular check-ups and cleanings, you can keep your mouth in peak health.
