Abscess

An abscess is an enclosed collection of liquefied material known as pus. Commonly caused by bacterial infection, an abscess is both painful and warm to the touch. It has the ability to show up any place on the body. Skin abscesses are visible, painful and red, while abscesses inside the body are more dangerous and harder to find.

Dental abscesses can occur anywhere on the face, neck, mouth or throat. Often, they are associated with poor oral hygiene and lack of proper dental care. Common symptoms include toothache, swelling, difficulty swallowing, fever, chills and nausea. Dental abscesses can spread from bone to soft tissue which can potentially cause severe complications.

Abscesses are not generally cured with antibiotics and often require surgical intervention. If an abscess does not improve within 5-7 days, gets larger or becomes more painful, it is recommended to visit a clinic for proper treatment.

Skin acts a barrier to the spread of infection, which maintains the toxins within the formed abscess. Hence, incision and drainage of the abscess must be done to the release the infected fluid from the area. The body then copes with the remaining infection with the aid of antibiotics. Proper elimination of the infection is necessary to ensure successful treatment.


Dr. Daniell Mishaan Wants to Know Every Mouth in His Practice

Dr. Mishaan is known to his patients and his staff as kind, caring and genuinely concerned about people. He steps out of his role as a clinician to really know you and your needs. His technical skill and his keen eye for aesthetics set him apart from other dental healthcare professionals.

Dr. Mishaan attended New York University and then went on to the University of Pennsylvania Dental School. Before opening the Dental Aesthetics and Facial Group practice, Dr. Mishaan’s experience included working in high-end dental offices on Central Park South and Madison Avenue. He saw the need for a practice in the Fashion District, where he could offer a full range of services with a focus on the convenience of the patient. He has assembled a team of professionals to provide dentistry, plastic surgery, and orthodontics—all in the same location.

Because preventative care is so vital, Dr. Mishaan wants you to feel at ease in the office, and he and his staff make every effort to ensure your comfort. Dr. Mishaan takes care of your regular preventative care, such as monitoring the health of your teeth, doing oral cancer exams, and taking x–rays. He helps you understand why regular cleanings, flossing and other preventative measures, such as using fluoride, should fit into your regular healthcare program.

In his efforts to know the whole patient, Dr. Mishaan performs a comprehensive review of your medical history. Sometimes, seemingly unrelated illnesses or medications can directly, or indirectly, impact your dental health, so he takes the time to review your history carefully. You will be aware of Dr. Mishaan’s professional and gentle approach throughout your visit.

  • General Exams & Fillings
