A dental abscess is one cause of toothache that should prompt you to see your dentist. To learn more, check out the following video.
This video explains that dental abscesses are infections of the pulp tissues of your teeth. This occurs when bacteria enter through cracked teeth, leaking dental work, or lateral canals exposed by receding gums. You will also see how abscesses cause pain when your body increases blood flow to the tooth, causing pressure to build up inside the tooth. To learn more about why you should see your dentist immediately if you have an abscess, be sure to watch this video.
