About Dental Infections
Signs You Need Treatment
Serious ToothachePersistent toothaches are often a sign that it's time to consult a dentist. With root canal infections, the pain can range from mild to excruciating.
SensitivityInfected teeth are especially sensitive to hot and cold temperatures. You may also notice some sensitivity when biting and chewing certain foods.
Swelling of the Gums or FaceThe gum tissue around an infected tooth will typically become swollen, tender, and discolored. Swelling may spread to the face and neck as well.
Bad Taste in Your MouthInfected tissue tends to give off an unpleasant taste that lingers within your mouth. Persistent bad breath can also be a common sign of infection. Seeing pus or oddly colored discharge around one or more teeth is another sign that you may be experiencing a dental infection.

A Dentist Who Cares About You Protecting Oral Health in Yuma, AZ
Let me start this by saying I have severe anxiety attacks/panic attacks just entering the dentist office. I avoid dentists at all costs. Unfortunately after 12-14 years I had to go. I was so impressed! This is the dental office to go to. Anyone that can deal with my anxiety attacks and still not get upset with me is fantastic. Everyone from the dentist to the receptionist is exceptional. Give them a chance you will love them!View On Google
Definitely have been recommending everyone to this dentist. Staff has been amazing with scheduling my appts at a timely manner and that are not 3 months out. And definitely has patience with me having my newborn around while they do work on me. Ave B Dental has been an amazing experience for me. Staff also knows what they are doing when it comes to looking up insurance for new members.View On Google
