Do You Have an Abscessed Tooth?
An abscess is an extremely uncomfortable infection at the tooth root, or it may also be found between the tooth and the gums. It is often a result of tooth decay, but it may result due to trauma, gum disease, or a chipped or broken tooth. Signs of an abscess include:

• Pain with chewing
• Sensitivity to cold or hot
• A bitter or foul taste in the mouth
• Swollen glands in the neck
• High fever
• Feeling ill or generally uncomfortable
• Swelling and redness of the gums
• Swollen lower or upper jaw
• Open, draining sores in the gums

If you are concerned that you might have a tooth abscess, contact our office for treatment right away.

Getting Enough Calcium When You Suffer from Lactose Intolerance
It can be difficult to get enough calcium when dairy cannot be a part of your daily diet. For those who suffer from lactose intolerance, this can be a regular issue. Calcium improves overall health, including oral health. If you need to add more calcium to your diet but cannot have dairy in your diet, consider these foods:

• Fish like sardines and canned salmon are good sources of calcium.
• Beans and other legumes, like black-eyed peas, are also abundant sources of calcium.
• Leafy green veggies are also a great option, such as bok choy, turnip greens, and kale.
• Seaweed gives your body a ton of nutrients, including large quantities of calcium.
• Oranges and orange juice provide a lot of Vitamin C and a good amount of calcium.

By adding some of these foods into your diet, you will have several sources of the calcium your body needs.
