Dental Infections: Symptoms, Causes, & Treatment Options

An abscessed dental infection, sometimes called an abscessed tooth, is a localized pocket of pus that has formed somewhere in or around a tooth. It occurs when bacteria find a way to enter the tooth, either through a cavity, a chip or crack in the tooth, or because of improper dental work. The bacteria spread to the soft interior or “pulp” of the tooth, and travel from there to its root, causing redness, swelling, and tenderness in the tooth, gum, or jaw.

Over 4 million patients choose K Health

“The fact I can be home and talk to a doctor and describe my symptoms is so convenient. Cheaper, more convenient than booking an appointment with my regular doc. I am very happy and will continue to use K Health for any health needs.” Joanna N.

“Easy to sign up. After filling out basic medical forms I was speaking with the doctor in less than 15 minutes. From the time I downloaded the app until my prescription was filled was maybe an hour! You can't beat that for such a low price!”

Jake B.

“I am very grateful for this app. It costs way less than any telemedicine app out there. The doctor that thought of this is a genius! It’s easy to use, saves time, and saves you a lot of money. Best of all, K Health has great customer service.”

Dennis D.

“Fantastic! I just got my needs taken care of instantly without having to deal with seeing a dr IRL. I love it! This has definitely earned a customer FOR LIFE instantly! So worth it and so much more cost effective than other competitors!”

Mia S.

“This is amazing. Took me all of 30 minutes to register, fill out my symptoms, talk with a dr, and get my prescription sent over. And for 20$ a visit (or less if you do the subscription) I can't believe this isn't more popular.”

Max A.

“Absolutely amazing. It correctly told me that I had food poisoning at one point and it also correctly told me that I had appendicitis. This app is a life saver and I've recommended it too all of my friends.”

Katja H.

“This app is amazing. It was affordable and you get to chat with real doctors. It's way more affordable than paying hundreds of dollars for a doctor's visit especially when it's something as simple as a refill on medication.”

Charlease L.

FAQ

Can I get a prescription online through the K Health app?

How do I get my prescription?

If one of our K-Affiliated doctors believe it to be medically appropriate, they will write a prescription to a local pharmacy of your choosing. To get a prescription you will be required to submit the following information:

  1. Your home address
  2. The address and name of the pharmacy you want the prescription sent to
  3. A selfie to confirm verify against your submitted ID

How do I connect with a doctor online?
