Serious pain in one or more of your teeth might be a sign that you have developed an abscess in your mouth. Abscesses are most common after an accident to the mouth but they can occur too after an infection that has been left untreated. Dental pain will not be the only symptom and sufferers often experience severe swelling in the face.
Abscesses will not just go away of their own accord and need to be treated. Leaving them without treatment can lead to undesirable consequences such as blood clots. All of your body is interlinked and any serious problem in the mouth can lead on to affecting the rest of you too.
