Seek Treatment: Abcesses, even without pain, indicate infections that can spread to other places in your body. Often the infection will find a way to drain (usually the sinuses) which may be why you do not feel pain. It needs intervention right away. At a minimum antibiotics but most likely root canal treatment or extraction will be needed. ...Read more

A: A tooth abscess or root abscess is pus enclosed in the tissues of the jaw bone at the apex of an infected tooth's root (s). Usually the abscess originates from a bacterial infection that has accumulated in the soft, often dead, pulp of the tooth. An abscess can be very painful or painless.
