You are not alone if you have a fear of going to the dentist. It’s actually a very common phobia. Recently, a patient who came in for the care of a tooth abscess said he would rather go through a heart surgery procedure than a visit to a dentist. Putting off dental procedures can lead to some very serious medical conditions. Ignoring the signs and symptoms of a tooth abscess and not taking care of it, could lead to an infection in the brain and blood vessels, causing a brain abscess. Sinus infections and even angina have been known to be caused by a neglected tooth abscess.
Here are some indications that you may have a tooth abscess and should seek dental care immediately:
A painful and throbbing toothache that can radiate to the jawbone, neck or ear. Usually persistent and won’t subside with pain relievers.
Hot and cold sensitivity
Chewing or biting is sensitive or painful
Swelling of the face or cheeks
Swollen and tender lymph nodes under the jaw or in the neck
If you have any of the above symptoms, you should seek dental care immediately. Call our office to make an appointment for all of your dental care needs.
I had been looking for a dentist that was compassionate and kind. I haven’t been to the dentist in 20 years due to my fear. When I was suffering from a tooth abscess, Dr. Kupetz, and his staff made me feel completely at ease. They never made me feel embarrassed about my prior dental neglect. They only encouraged me to keep up on my dental health in a positive and non-condescending way. I highly recommend Dr. Kupetz for anyone living in the the Dutchess County area!
