Treatments For A Dental Infection
Once your tooth develops a large cavity, you may be in a great amount of pain. Often, a deep cavity exposes the interior of your tooth to oral bacteria. This can lead to a dental infection. The inner portion of a tooth is called the pulp. The pulp is where the nerves and blood vessels of the tooth reside. Thus, when the pulp becomes inflamed by an infection, the dental nerves are affected, leading to pain or discomfort.
