Whether you think it’s an abscess or not in your mouth, you should have a professional take a look, especially if it is painful. These painful cysts can often be the result of an infection when bacteria enter an irritated or hurt area. You will usually notice a painful and/or swollen area filled with pus trapped, typically kept around to keep the infection from spreading. Dr. Golgoun Habibi and our professionals in Mountain View, California, wants you to get the dental care you need for your abscess, whether it’s gum-related, tooth-related, or anything else.

So it doesn’t affect the jaw bone, teeth, and surrounding tissues, an abscess needs to be treated right away. Symptoms such as pain, swelling, redness in the gums, a gross taste in the mouth, or even a fever are things to consider when treating an abscess, which you can do so with some of the following:

– To destroy the infection, antibiotics are a good source recommended by doctors
– Cleaning thoroughly between the teeth and gums and teeth
– Drain the infection of the buildup


– A root canal treatment may be needed if there is decay or a cracked tooth.
