Incorrect Assumption: You can have an infection without soft tissue swelling. Your dentist should be able to test that tooth as to the integrity of the nerve and periodontal support. If there is a question as to how to proceed, please see an endodontist. Feel better soon and don't be scared.

See a dentist ASAP: A tooth abscess won't go away without treatment and the infection may spread to your jaw, cheeks, sinus, brain and to other areas of your head and neck. A dental abscess is a collection of pus that forms in your teeth or gums as a result of a bacterial infection. Dentist will treat a tooth abscess by treating the cause and getting rid of the infection. See your dentist ASAP.
