Swelling in facial structures, on the jaws or checks is often related to teeth. Dental infections can present themselves in many ways, from a small pimple on the gums, to a tooth that hurts to bite down on or swelling. It is pertinent that any type of facial swelling be evaluated by a dentist as soon as possible. An antibiotic or pain pill may relieve some discomfort (generally, this is the only treatment provided by an ER or urgent care), yet the true source of the infection has not been addressed. Now Care Dental maintains treatment appointments 365 days a year and has the expertise to manage most dental infections. We treat a lot of patients with dental infections and know that delaying treatment leads to more severe cases. Treatment that we commonly provide for dental infections includes: drainage, root canals, and extractions. All of these are done with the the lastest technology and comforts that dentistry has to offer. Call us at (651) 686-6800
