What Are the Symptoms of an Infected Tooth?
When the root of a tooth becomes badly infected, it causes extreme pain. You’ll notice the pain when you bite down or chew. You may also have a painful sensation when you drink hot or cold liquids, which can linger for a time. Some patients in need of endodontic treatment have small, pimple-like bumps on their gums when they come in for their consultation. These are all common signs of a tooth with an infected root.
