Tooth Infection is a slow and gradual process resulting in dental cavities or dental caries. Tooth decay occurs when disease causing bacteria produce an acid which removes the top most layer of the tooth surface, the enamel. This
infection can go deeper in to the pulp chamber and results in tooth loss or it may even cause infections to wisdom tooth. Tooth infection can be easily prevented by brushing the teeth properly and flossing regularly, and by consulting a dentist or dental professional, also by avoiding taking foods that are very high in sugar.

How To Control Tooth Infection 

Rinse the mouth three or four times daily with a mixture of 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 liter warm water.Apply cold packs to the cheek to minimize the pain. Administer oral antibiotics immediately if evacuation is delayed. Consult your physician for antibiotics used for tooth infections. Evacuate immediately to a dentist or physician.

Prevention of Tooth Infection

To prevent continued infection, the area is then sealed. Sometimes Surgery is needed to remove the infected material from the bony tissue around the root. Sometimes the root canal therapy is not successful in that case the tooth usually has to be extracted. Antibiotics and analgesics can help only for temporarily relief. It is not possible that tooth infection can be permanently treated without root canal therapy or the removal of the tooth.
