A periodontal abscess can be a very painful experience and sometimes dangerous. This occurs when there is a bacterial infection in the gum. You may experience bad breathe and difficulty chewing. Gargle with warm salt water can help with some of the discomfort (1/8 salt to 8 oz warm water) and call us as soon as you can for an appointment.
