In brief: Ludwig's Angina

Ludwig's angina is an infection in the floor of the mouth, which can be caused by abscessed teeth in the lower jaw, resulting in swelling in the floor of the mouth and elevation of the tongue.
Ludwig's can become a very serious and life threatening problem. See your dentist for evaluation and treatment before your wisdom tooth problem becomes more serious.

Throat and neck Ludwig’s Angina are rare but very serious of abscess of the teeth.
