A periodontal abscess forms when bacteria begins to grow in the space between your teeth and gums. Eventually your immune system begins to battle this bacterial growth and it becomes extremely painful. Our periodontal specialist can treat the periodontal disease and will decide whether to extract or keep the tooth, depending on how far the abscess has spread. Don’t continue to suffer in pain while the situation worsens, come to our dental office and let our periodontal specialists solve the problem! Call us at 410-569-8500 to schedule an appointment today.
