Treating a Gum Abscess

The AlloDerm skin graft patch has been linked to a number of dangerous and painful complications. One of these is the formation of a gum abscess after gum grafting surgery. A gum abscess is very dangerous and uncomfortable, and forms when the gum surgery site becomes infected and pus accumulates around the infection. If left untreated, the infection can spread to other parts of the body, or the jaw bone and surrounding teeth can be damaged.

The AlloDerm lawsuit attorneys from Williams Hart believe that the manufacturers of harmful medical products should be held accountable for the damage that their products cause. If you or a loved one has had a dental procedure using AlloDerm and suffered negative side effects, such as gum abscesses, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Contact our offices today at 800-761-3187 to learn more.

Gum Abscess Treatment Options

Because gum abscesses (also called dental abscesses) can become serious very quickly, it is not advisable for you to try and treat this condition on your own. If you have a gum abscess:

  • Call your dentist and make an appointment as soon as possible
  • In the meantime, keep your mouth very clean and rinse with mouthwash
  • To control the pain and swelling, rinse with warm saltwater and take anti-inflammatory pills
  • The dentist will thoroughly clean the affected area and extract the trapped pus
  • The infection will be treated with antibiotics

If the abscess has gone untreated for a long time, further measures, such as tooth extraction, may be necessary.
