Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
How do I know if my tooth infection is serious?
A serious tooth infection is often characterised by severe, persistent pain that may radiate to the ear, jaw, or neck. You might also notice swelling in the face, cheek, or around the affected tooth.
Accompanying symptoms can include fever, tender swollen lymph nodes under the jaw or in the neck, a bad taste in the mouth, bad breath, and difficulty swallowing or breathing.
An untreated infection can spread and lead to severe complications.
What is classed as a dental emergency?
A dental emergency is typically recognized by severe pain, bleeding, or immediate risk to the teeth.
Examples include knocked-out or loosened teeth from trauma, intense toothaches that hinder daily activities, swelling in the mouth or face suggesting an infection, or persistent bleeding from the mouth.
Complications from recent dental surgeries, such as lost stitches or severe post-operative pain, also qualify.
Additionally, broken or cracked teeth with pain or sharp edges, as well as lost or damaged fillings, crowns, or bridges causing discomfort, are considered emergencies.
What does a tooth infection feel like?
A tooth infection often presents as a throbbing, persistent pain in or around the affected tooth. The pain can sometimes radiate to the jaw, ear, or neck.
Sensitivity to hot, cold, or pressure when biting down is common. The area might be tender to touch, and there can be swelling in the nearby gums or face.
Some people also experience a foul taste in the mouth or persistent bad breath. In more advanced cases, fever or swollen lymph nodes might be present.
How long can you have a tooth infection before sepsis?
The time between a tooth infection and the onset of sepsis can vary widely, from days to weeks, depending on the individual and the severity of the infection. While some infections remain localised, others can spread rapidly.
Factors like the person’s immune response, the presence of other health conditions, and the virulence of the bacteria play roles.
What are the signs of dental sepsis?
Dental sepsis is a severe infection originating from a tooth and potentially spreading to other body parts. Symptoms often include a severe toothache or pain in the affected region, accompanied by facial, jaw, or neck swelling.
Individuals might also experience an elevated body temperature or fever, redness and warmth around the infected area, and a foul taste or persistent bad breath.
Dental sepsis can escalate quickly, leading to serious, potentially life-threatening complications if left untreated.
