Dental Pulp Infection - Symptoms

  • Unprovoked pain
  • Pain on biting
  • Prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold
  • Discolouration of the tooth
  • Tenderness of the overlying gums
  • Abscess or swelling

Sometimes, there may be no symptoms at all. When the dental pulp inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can eventually cause severe pain, abscess (swelling) and loss of the supporting bone.

It is best to consult with your dentist if you have any of the symptoms mentioned for a more accurate diagnosis and treatment.
