Possible, not likely: Staph (whether MRSA or non-MRSA types) is not a common cause of dental abscesses, although it could happen. All abscess symptoms are pretty much the same, no matter what bacteria are involved: swelling, pain, redness, and potentially draining pus. Discuss with your dentist and follow her advice if antibiotic treatment is prescribed. ...Read more
Is a tooth abscess cured if it drains? Do i still need to go to my dentist? I had a small bump on my gums, and i was going to make an appointment, but this morning it burst and drained. Didn’t taste too good, but i swished some mouthwash around my mouth,
You're right...: Most tooth abscesses rarely affect adjacent teeth. This is a remarkable sign of a healthy immune system that can hold the infection 'at bay.' the infection tends affect the supporting bone and not destroy blood supply or nerves. If the cause of the infection is removed (extraction or root canal) our bodies can heal the affected bone while the blood/nerves still survive. Amazing isn't it? ...Read more

It can be...: I usually recommend antibiotics prior to extracting an abscessed tooth. I recommend this for several reasons. First, the antibiotic reduces the infection significantly. Second, with less infection, the tooth can be more adequately anesthetized which makes for a more comfortable extraction. Third, following the extraction the comfort level is enhanced with less infection present. ...Read more

Please see your dentist before infection spreads further. ...Read more

How long does it take for a abscess tooth to cause a brain infection and what might be the symptoms?
It Depends: If an upper tooth is abscessed, and the abscess goes into the fascia (the layer between the bone and muscle), it can spread fairly quickly, and i don't think anyone wants to find out how quickly! the infection can go to the angular vein, and then to the cavernous sinus, leading to a need for hospitalization.
