If you have an abscess, the pulp inside your tooth is infected. This condition can be excruciatingly painful and, if left untreated, will lead to the loss of your tooth and even more widespread infection.

The treatment for a tooth abscess is a root canal. Contrary to myth, root canals are no more uncomfortable than getting a regular filling. In fact, the procedure is meant to stop your pain and save your tooth. After your root canal, you may get a crown to strengthen the tooth.
