A tooth abscess is a pocket of pus deposited there due to bacterial infection. The pus might cause painful swelling of your tooth. In the case of a severe tooth abscess, damaged tooth needs to be immediately extracted from the gums.
If the abscess is not treated right away, it can decay your surrounding gums and teeth. It may even take the form of a pimple or cyst. Such painful abscess requires surgery instead of tooth extraction. It is always better to identify the tooth abscess in time and get it removed as soon as possible.
