ANGINA DE LUDWIG EN PEDIATRIA PDF

Patients who have a tooth abscess anywhere in the Chicago-land area have a compelling reason to visit a Chicago oral surgeon. Many times, a dental abscess must be drained through a surgical procedure in conjunction with a tooth extraction in order to avoid more dangerous local or systemic issues developing elsewhere. Not to be confused with the most common meaning of angina, which is pain in the chest, Ludwigs angina is an infection that affects the connective tissues found in the floor of the mouth, neck and encompassing the airway. A condition called trismus develops which causes limited range of mouth opening due to pain. As the condition progresses, patients begin to have difficulty swallowing and even breathing becomes labored due to upper airway constriction.

Not to be confused with the most common meaning of angina, which is pain in the chest, Ludwigs angina is an infection that affects the connective tissues found in the floor of the mouth, neck and encompassing the airway. A condition called trismus develops which causes limited range of mouth opening due to pain. As the condition progresses, patients begin to have difficulty swallowing and even breathing becomes labored due to upper airway constriction.

Make no mistake, this condition is a surgical emergency and can be quickly fatal due to airway compromise. That is correct, you can die from a tooth abscess!

In Chicago, it requires the expert care of an oral and maxillofacial surgeon who will aggressively treat this life-threatening emergency with the placement of multiple drains and incisions, removal of the offending tooth or teeth, and I. The oral surgeon may even need to perform a tracheostomy to maintain and protect the airway and prevent fatality. Patients whose airways are compromised may also need mechanical ventilation in an intensive care unit until the acute infection phase has abated.

It can be difficult for patients to tell the difference between a typical toothache and an abscess, so you should become familiar with the signs of abscess.

Wisdom teeth are notorious for developing abscesses, but it can happen with any tooth in the mouth. An oral surgeon can use various methods to eliminate a dental abscess, and the surgeon will take steps to make the procedure as smooth as possible, including comfortable sedation. Anxiety should not keep you from seeking treatment for a dental abscess, but if it does, consider the possible adverse effects of postponing treatment.
