An absessed tooth is a very serious thing. It is caused by a very large amount of tooth decay that is not restored by a dentist and is allowed to grow larger and larger over time. The tooth eventually gets rotten all the way into the living part of your tooth where the nerve is. That nerve then decides to die and basically go out screaming. Causing pain and the contents of that tooth to go out the root of the tooth into the gums and cause an infection. Any infection that is untreated can cause very harmful effects including (on rare occasions) even death. Usually if an absess is untreated it will eventually stop hurting but it WILL come back with a vengance several times until it is treated. The treatment is either extraction (not usually the best option) or a root canal (which is not half as scary as it sounds). Modern day root canals involve being numbed to the point of not feeling ANYTHING and spending about an hour and a half in a dental office while having a procedure done that is even easier than having a tooth filled. There should be NO PAIN INVOLVED! To find a good dentist in your area call the local "periodontist" (a gum specialist) who usually sees the dental work done by every dentist in the whole town and knows who does the best work. If finances are an issue there is usually a Free Dental Clinic in almost every town.

If you notice the symptoms and get the proper treatment, you will return to normal health.

If untreated, you would surely die. With medicines or in some cases surgery and/or replacement, you can live a relatively normal life.

Yes, some horses do return to a normal life after EPM treatment. An early diagnosis and effective, appropriate treatment increase the chances of a good recovery.

No, that is not normal. Please take your cat to a vet. Your poor cat needs help and treatment immediately. If you cannot afford the treatment, ask the vet nicely where you can get free treatment for your cat.

Abscessed tooth is clearly a type of infection in the mouth. It forms a collection of puss ( a concoction of dead tissue, live and dead bacteria, or white blood cells) which is Infection results in a collection of pus (dead tissue, live and dead bacteria, white blood cells) which is accompanied by swelling of the tissues within the tooth. This causes a painful toothache. The pain is normal when the body is dealing with an infection; it's a type of mechanism that tells us that something is wrong with our body. In this case, toothaches occur when someone has an abscessed tooth.

It is perfectly normal for hair to grow around or on the nipple. Many females have this happen. You can pluck them if they're overly noticeable, or get laser treatment, but shaving them off is generaly a no-no since the skin around the nipple is very sensitive.

Treatment of gestational diabetes depends on the severity of the case. For women who test on the borderline of gestational diabetes, often the only treatment is a diabetic diet (low carb, low sugar) and exercise. Those who test with high blood sugar will need to take insulin injections as well as diet and exercise to maintain normal blood sugar levels. It's important to talk to your doctor about your treatment plan. If left untreated, gestational diabetes can have many adverse affects on your fetus.
