Don't Wait to See the Dentist when Your Tooth Hurts

My molar began to hurt one night so much that it woke me up. I hadn't been to the dentist regularly, so I knew it was my bad habits catching up to me. I took pain relievers for a few days that dulled the pain, and then I developed a big bump on my gum. It scared me enough to finally go to the dentist. He told me the bump was an abscess from a bad tooth infection. He said that if I had waited too much longer, the infection could have spread to my sinuses and even my brain! He gave me antibiotics and in a few days he was able to save the tooth with a root canal. I created this blog to tell other people that if your tooth hurts, then go to the dentist immediately. You probably have an infection that will only keep getting worse.
