For those who have an abscessed tooth, it can be quite a painful ailment! An abscess can occur in nearly any place on the body and is not something that gets better on its own. Those who develop an abscess will require professional care, which is normally an incision and drainage procedure. A dental abscess, in particular, is a pocket of pus found anywhere in a patient’s mouth, face, jaw, or throat and usually begins as a tooth infection. It can also be caused by a deep cavity, periodontal (gum) disease, a cracked tooth or other dental trauma. For this, we gladly offer incision and drainage in Glendale, Arizona, the greater Phoenix area, and surrounding cities.

It is important to get treatment promptly before bacteria from the abscess spreads into the adjacent gums, teeth and other oral tissues, such as the jaw or facial bones. An abscess can also become increasingly painful as it becomes more inflamed. To learn whether you may an incision and drainage procedure, call Southwest Oral Surgery at 623-792-5794.
