The sooner you can spot an abscessed tooth, the better chance your dentist has of treating it before it becomes any worse. Once the abscess moves into the inner chamber and the surrounding structure of the tooth, it begins to affect the nerve tissue.
An abscessed tooth causes pain and hyperemia. It might also feel sensitive when you tap on it with a toothbrush or a piece of food. As the infection spreads, these feelings will become more severe. Check out this video to learn more.
