How can I treat an infected tooth without a root canal?
If you believe your tooth has an infection, it is important to see a dental professional as soon as possible. A tooth infection can lead to serious conditions such as an abscess or acute sinusitis. It is important a dental professional perform a thorough examination of the infected tooth to determine if the infection is coming from the tooth itself, or the surrounding tissues such as the gums or sinus. It is rare but possible the swelling can be neoplastic as well, which could necessitate a biopsy, surgery, or other modalities of intervention to treat. If the infection is coming from the tooth, there are two predictable options for treatment: one option is to disinfect the inside of the tooth where the bacteria are located - this is known as a root canal. The other option is to remove the tooth entirely, known as an extraction. In certain circumstances, a medicine may be placed inside the tooth after removing the cavity to alleviate symptoms temporarily; however, the tooth will still need to have a root canal or extraction as this is not a permanent solution.
