Infections, toothache, abscess

If you suffer from a cyst or a dental or gingival abscess, you may feel severe pain with swelling in the gums (impression of a "lump" on the gums), which may be accompanied by fever and a bad taste in the mouth. Emergency treatment consists of prescribing antibiotics and painkillers to cure the bacterial infection or calm the pain. An abscess or toothache can be caused by untreated tooth decay or dental trauma, among other things. The main symptom of a toothache (also called pulpitis or endodontia) is a sharp radiating pain caused by inflammation of the inner part of the tooth (pulp). The dental pulp includes different nerves and vessels, which explains this very intense pain. Other painful conditions of the gums (gingival) and periodontal tissues (periodontitis) may also lead you to consult us urgently. In any case, contact us for advice and rapid support.

Infections, toothache, abscess

Any type of trauma can lead to the fracture or expulsion of a tooth (or several teeth). The loss of a filling (obturation) should also lead you to consult urgently to avoid any infection or additional damage. Depending on the extent of the damage, the dental surgeon will take the necessary measures according to the patient's age (permanent teeth or milk teeth). An X-ray will generally be carried out within the clinic itself to check the condition of the broken tooth and the surrounding teeth. If the tooth or part of the tooth is found, it must be kept, without being cleaned, in physiological serum, in milk or possibly in the mouth (in contact with saliva). If reimplantation is possible, it should take place as soon as possible. In case of displacement of permanent teeth, it is first necessary to replace them correctly with the fingers. Then contact the clinic immediately for rapid treatment of any trauma by our dental surgeons.
