Dental patients in the High Point area may wonder what would happen if they didn’t get their six month checkups and cleanings at Crystal Dental Group in High Point. The answer isn’t pretty.
By not seeing us twice a year, cavities may go undetected. A common result of untreated cavities are 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 Crystal Dental Group. With daily brushing and flossing and regular check-ups and cleanings, you can keep your mouth in peak health.
