You may wonder what would happen if you didn’t seek regular dental care from Karen E. Williamson DDS PA in Rockwall. The answer isn’t pretty.
A common result of untreated cavities are abscesses. An 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.
With daily brushing and flossing and regular check-ups and cleanings, you can keep your mouth in peak health.
At Karen E. Williamson DDS PA in Rockwall, the dental health of our patients is our number one priority. We advise each one to maintain a good dental care routine at home, and see us for checkups every six months. Our services include general and restorative dentistry.
