A reoccurring abscess’ is a complication that at best is an inconvenience, and at worst cause extreme pain and complications. Abscesses are usually due to a complication of an infection and shouldn’t become recurring and problematic if treated appropriately in the first instance. They can be caused by different reasons, for example, following root canal treatment, or extraction where a gap has allowed the abscess to take hold. If left untreated, abscesses can worsen and potentially destroy the surrounding bone tissue. Patients may have to have their gum tissue reshaped, the periodontal pocket removed, or extraction of teeth.
Complications, if left untreated, although rare can have serious consequences including:
- Dental Cysts
- Osteomyelitis – when an infection gets in to the blood stream and infects the bone
- Cavernous Sinus Thrombosis – a blood clot in the Cavernous Sinus
- Ludwig’s Angina – swelling and intense pain under the tongue and potentially in the neck
- Maxillary Sinusitis

Independent reviews from our CLIENTS
I am writing to you personally to say thank you to Attwood's for a job well done with my recent claims. It initially started out as one claim, but eventually became a little more complicated when another was added following a review of my condition by one of your dental experts. Throughout the last couple of years as the claim has progressed I have been fully supported by your colleague Luke Taylor. I have thanked him personally for all the good work and support he gave me over the last couple of years, it was quite a journey for both of us but with the right outcome, but I just wanted to also highlight to yourself the good service and support he provided me with. It was very much needed and appreciated. He has always been very professional and the advice he has given has always been with real feeling and thought, and not the "just my job" attitude. Even when I was very wary of what to do next, he always explained it in simple terms for me understand and move forward. If I ever need similar help in the future, your company will be the first I contact. With my sincere appreciation and regards.
I contacted Attwood Solicitors requesting that they represent me. Their response to date has been way beyond my expectations . They have provided a comprehensive and professional service at every stage, with a dedicated member of staff as my contact.
