Dental health in Turkey is one of the issues that needs a lot of attention. Gum health problems can cause quite a lot of problems. What causes gum abscess? Does gum abscess go away on its own, how is it treated? We have compiled all the details about gum abscess.

Health problems that occur in the gums are not much cared for by most people. But when you notice a problem with your gums, you can intervene as soon as possible, preventing it from progressing further and making the treatment in Turkey process easier.

One of the most common health problems that occur in the gums is a gum abscess. As a result of the fact that caries is not interfered with for a long time, gum abscess is formed as a result of its spread to the roots and gums of the teeth. Swelling and pain that occur as a result of infections in the gums are called abscesses.

* As a result of infections that occur both in the tooth and in the gum, an abscess occurs in the gum.

* Pain in the form of intense throbbing can occur in the teeth during the onset of an abscess in the gum.

* Pain occurs in the teeth with the consumption of hot and cold drinks. In the same way, you feel pain in your teeth while eating.

* Gum abscess can also cause fever.

Because gum abscess occurs as a result of infection, it also causes fatigue in the body.


For abscesses that occur in your gums, you should first talk to your dentist. In general, root canal treatment is applied to treat gum abscess.

* Only root canal treatment can not be applied to patients who are too late for treatment.

* Waiting for the gum abscess to pass on its own can cause it to progress further. This is why it is not recommended.

* In cases where gum abscess progresses, surgical procedure will be required if it is late for treatment.

Finally, if the tooth becomes unable to get rid of it, it will need to be withdrawn for treatment. After withdrawal, the treatment process will be completed by making an implant instead of a tooth.

* After completing the abscess treatment, the first six months should be very careful. After that, the dentist will ask you to check again and tell you about the state of the infection.

* To prevent abscesses that will also occur in your teeth, you should take care of your mouth and teeth. If you do gum care on a daily basis, you can also prevent gum abscess formation.
