WARNING: This video contains graphic images of a dental procedure.

A dental abscess forms when an infected tooth produces pus that the body tries to “wall-off” in a small sac-like structure to prevent the spread of the infection. In this video, Dr. Jorgenson creates an incision in the outer wall of the abscess and drains the infection.

Treating both the abscess and the source of the infection is critical to protect the patient from further infection and for optimal treatment outcomes.

If you think you have a dental abscess or any other condition you are concerned about, please contact your dentist immediately.
