Pain and swelling in the face, jaw, or neck may be a sign of a tooth or gum infection. If left untreated, it could lead to a more serious, even life-threatening condition.

Severe infections that do not respond to antibiotics or your body’s natural healing process could require treatment. That treatment may include incision and drainage, as well as tooth extraction.
