If you’ve been experiencing tooth pain, facial swelling, sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures, or fever, you may have an abscessed tooth. This is a serious infection that must be treated with a root canal, or you risk losing the tooth or the infection spreading to other parts of your body.

Watch this video from the American Dental Association to learn more.
