Tooth Pain Signs and Symptoms of an Abscessed Tooth

What are the signs and indications of abscessed tooth pain?

  • The tooth turns dark in color compared with surrounding teeth. The byproducts of the pulp that leach into the permeable tooth layer triggers this staining. Often, there might be no discomfort present.
  • There is discomfort with eating or with pressing on the tooth. This is related to the infection spreading and triggering more pressure on the surrounding structures of gum and bone.
  • There is swelling and/or a pimple on the gum that is filled with pus. This is an apparent sign of infection. Other symptoms of a tooth abscess are a bad taste or bad smell in the mouth.
  • A swollen face or jaw commonly signifies a growing infection. Jaw discomfort from the swelling can be present.

It is important to note that an abscessed tooth may not have any symptoms at all. There might be no pain associated with it because the tooth has lost vitality. However, the abscess is present and could be further spreading the infection. On occasion, an abscessed tooth is detected during an X-ray exam where the client has not encountered any symptoms of an abscessed tooth.
