Let's talk about what CAUSES an abscessed tooth, how to TREAT an abscess & how to PREVENT an abscess, as well! Tooth and gum abscess stages vary, depending on the type of dental abscess you have. But one thing is for certain, you need to get it treated quickly. What does a tooth abscess look like? Usually, a swollen blister or pimple on your gums, with pus that drains from that area. Some abscesses cause fluid to drain out near the gumlines whenever the tooth is depressed. The earlier you seek out professional care, the better chances you have of saving your tooth and preventing the infection from spreading elsewhere. Don’t ignore abscessed teeth; in rare conditions, they can put you in the hospital because of how life-threatening the infection is.
