What's a Dental Fistula?

When you avoid the dentist, you miss out on the chance to deal with problems before they develop. A dental fistula is just one example of a more serious problem that can occur when you don’t take care of a small issue. Watch this video to learn what a dental fistula is.

A fistula appears when your body reacts to inflammation, and it connects the inside or surface of the body to an organ or source of inflammation. As a result, a pus canal will develop. This small elevation on the gums can rupture, but it will continue to refill with pus. Sometimes this can lead to scarring, so see your dentist if you think you might have a fistula.
