A tooth infection, or an abscessed tooth, is a painful infection. This infection usually occurs between the tooth and the gum, or inside the root of the tooth. A tooth infection is usually caused by severe tooth decay, but can also happen when a tooth is chipped or broken.
There are several symptoms of an abscessed tooth in your child, none of which should be ignored. These symptoms include:
If your child is complaining of any of the above symptoms, it’s important to bring them in as soon as possible. The sooner an infection is caught, the less severe it will get.
