Signs, Symptoms and Treatment of an Abscessed Tooth
Is your tooth throbbing and persistently keeping you up all night? Perhaps you could be having an abscessed tooth. This is simply an infection that spreads to the tip of the root and around the root of your tooth. The infection spreads from the inner chamber, also known as "pulp chamber". The nerves and the blood vessels in the inner chamber are collectively referred to as pulp. An abscess forms because the tooth has lost the ability to fight bacteria.
