Dental Infection, Pain, or Swelling

Do You Have Any of the Following Symptoms?

  • Pain that is throbbing and radiates in different directions.
  • Swelling of your gum tissue or other parts of your mouth.
  • Swelling involving your face or neck.
  • Drainage in the mouth with a foul taste.
  • Fever.
  • Tender lymph nodes in the neck.
  • Redness and warmth over your skin.

If you have any of the above signs or symptoms, you most likely have an infection which requires immediate attention and treatment. Delaying treatment can result in serious and potentially life threatening complications.

Emergency Help When You Need It Most:

Maybe you’ve had a toothache for several weeks and it seems to have escalated. Or perhaps there is severe sensitivity to hot and cold and the pain is unbearable. Perhaps you’ve had a “gum boil” for several months that does not seem to resolve. Or perhaps you’ve woken up with painful swelling on your gum or the side of your face.

Pain and swelling are most commonly the result of inflammation or infection from teeth decay, gum disease, and other pathological conditions. Either way, pain can be severe. Infection-related swelling can spread quickly to other areas of the head and neck and lead to dangerous complications.
