There are many causes of tooth infection. The most common ones are abscesses from tooth decay or gum disease. Un treated abscess from tooth decay do not spread to adjacent tooth but infection potentially can spread to other area, this condition called cellulitis and that is a medical emergency. Abscess from gum disease do not spread once you taken the right antibiotics. To facilitate healing you should keep the area clean with tooth brushing, flossing, use mouthwash and finish the whole course of the antibiotics. It is also important to come back for the Dentist follow up, and provide any others necessary treatments. READ MORE

Hi, This sounds very unusual after a routine clean. Sometimes, there may have been a particularly large amount of calculus that was cleaned off and irritated your gums. Or perhaps it is completely unrelated to the cleaning, maybe associated with a problem with another tooth. It is very difficult to give you an exact reason without a proper assessment. I would recommend that you come in for a thorough examination by a dentist. Give us a call on 02 4731 4655 if you would like to make an appointment with us. Hope this helps. READ MORE
