Untreated dental infections can quickly switch from a dental inconvenience into a dental nightmare, perhaps even one that threatens your life, or that of your family.
Many people think of oral health problems as nuisances – not a threat to general health. And in most cases this is true, but in some cases, such as untreated dental infections, the threat is very real.
At Alex Bratic Dental Care we want you to be aware of the threat of dental infections and know how to identify and treat them.
Dental infections pose a threat to life when they are allowed to develop, unchecked, and develop into dental anscesses. An abscess is an accumulation of pus, comprised of white blood cells, dead tissue and germs.
