The tooth structure consists of several parts. The crown is the part of the tooth that is visible in the mouth, and also the root is the part below the surface that holds the tooth in place and extends to the jawbone. 

The main part of the tooth is a soft material called dentin which contains the harder outer tooth enamel. Roots have a hard surface called cement, but in the center of the roots there is a softer layer of cellulose.

When the blood supply or nerve tissue known as the pulp is damaged, it is damaged and bacteria begin to multiply in the pulp spaces or ducts. Bacteria and various decaying dirt cause infection or abscess on the teeth. 

How can a tooth become infected – The nerves and pulp are irritated, inflamed, and infected by deep tooth decay, continuous dental work on teeth and / or large fillings, cracks or chips in teeth, or trauma to the face.

Common signs are: –

  1. Severe toothache, pain when chewing, or pressure

  2. Sensitivity / prolonged pain to heat or cold (after releasing heat or cold)

  3. Tooth discoloration (dark)

  4. Pain and swelling of the gums
