If you are experiencing severe tooth pain, a fever, swollen gums or jaw, and tooth sensitivity, you may have an abscessed tooth. If you’re looking for a dentist in the Naples area, find one who specializes in root canal therapy. Make an appointment as soon as possible to prevent further damage to your teeth.
