What are Facial Infections and Abscesses?
A facial infection or dental abscess is an infected tooth or an infection under the gums, which leads to all kinds of problems if left untreated. These infections are extremely painful, often making it impossible to perform ordinary activities. Some of the problems they can cause are infection of the surrounding bone, tooth loss, soft tissue and sinus infection, and even life-threatening conditions such as septicemia (inflection of the entire bloodstream) and abscess of the brain.
How Do Infections
Facial infections and dental abscesses form as the result of poor oral hygiene or bacteria exposure from an injury or oral surgery. Certain factors can also increase the risk of developing an infection, such as immunodeficiency disorders, alcoholism, and diabetes. It’s always better to prevent these infections from developing, so make sure to follow a good oral hygiene routine of twice-daily brushing, daily flossing, regular dental appointments, and avoiding consuming excess sugar.

The establishment is clean and well decorated and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable. I was given options to treat my gums and not force fed a sales pitch, which is a big deal to me. They did a great job while showing that they truly care about my oral health.
My family and I have been coming here for over 5 years. I was always afraid of the dentist as a kid, but now enjoy them taking care of my teeth. I am no longer fearful.
I came here with so many dental issues!!! The previous dentist I had made my problems even worse and I thought there was no end to the pain. I went to Dr. Kenny Abedini and he worked on my mouth for 9 months to get all the work I wanted done. Two deep cleanings, a root canal, ten gold crowns fitted just right (3 lower left 3 lower right 2 top right 2 top left all in the back) so I can still smile and you cannot see the gold. The best part no more pain!!! I have TMJ so I clench and grind my teeth until I cracked my other porcelain down. So this time I wanted gold so the metal will not crack or grind down as fast, and might last the rest of my life. Now the teeth in the back feel great, and look great. I would recommend him to everyone and will be a returning customer for years to come.
The front desk staff were friendly and efficient. My hygienist was friendly, knowledgeable, thorough, and gentle. My time with the doctor was short, because I didn’t have any major issues but he seemed nice. The whole appointment felt fast but not rushed. I also appreciated that they helped me navigate my insurance. I feel comfortable and confident returning, and I’d recommend to anyone!
