Dealing with Painful Gum Boils?
There’s absolutely nothing good about a gum boil. On top of it being tremendously painful, it also makes it difficult to eat and speak. But not to worry—Battery Hill Dental can treat it so you have a reason to smile again. Visit Battery Hill Dental, your local Currimundi dentist, for help.
Have your gum boil treated right away. A small gum boil can have devastating—even fatal—consequences if left untreated. The infection from this little bump can spread to your teeth and bones, as well as to the rest of your body. It can also increase your risk for tooth and bone loss, heart disease, blood poisoning, oral cancer, and even death.
Cleaning through scaling and planning of your teeth can help remove any plaque and tartar buildup on the gumline, which can cause gum boil. This procedure also involves draining the pus to provide relief.
We can remove the abscess, the dead pulp, and other tissues in the affected area if the infection comes from the inner part of the tooth. Doing so also helps prevent the infection and boil from coming back.
For persistent gum boil or abscess that keeps coming back, we may also remove the affected tooth after performing a root canal treatment.

What causes a gum boil?
A gum boil can cause severe, shooting, gnawing, or prickly pain. The tooth or teeth affected by the gum boil may also be extremely sensitive to warmth as well as to force, like when you are biting or chewing.
The pocket of infection that is a gum boil, which can excrete blood and pus, can cause you to have bad breath.
Fever and chills
Severe infection can cause malaise, fever, and chills, as well as fatigue and headaches.
Brushing your teeth can cause the gum boil to bleed. It can also be painful to talk and eat as any contact with the inflamed tissue can cause excruciating pain and bleeding.
A gum boil can also cause you to have an unpleasant bitter taste in your mouth as the gum, and maybe even the teeth and other tissues in the area, rot away. The pus may also leak from the boil and flow into the mouth.
