Treatment of infections (abscesses)
In medical language it is called Drainage of Abscesses
Abscesses are infections that come from the decay of teeth in severe degrees or from their stripping and movement. They spread to the gums with variations in size (from a slight bulge in the area around the tooth to a bulge that appears on the outside), which can impede breathing. This is accompanied by fever, constant pain, mobility of the teeth, and swelling of the lymph nodes in the neck. Surgical treatment is performed when the treatment of the tooth has not succeeded in eliminating the infection and consists of an intervention in the infected area and disinfection of the infected space, depending on the case, with antibiotics.
