periapical abscess

Low CL, since I'm not medical mafia :)

Abszesse können sich entlang anatomischer Spalträume, den so genannten Logen, weiter ausbreiten und so eine erhebliche Dimension erreichen.

Bei einer Revisionsbehandlung muss damit gerechnet werden, dass sich Bakterien in organisierten Kolonien, sogenannten Biofilmen, in Spalträumen des Wurzelkanals hartnäckig festgesetzt haben.

A tooth-related abscess (also called a periapical abscess) occurs inside the tooth. This happens when the tooth's nerve is dead or dying. This type of abscess shows up at the tip of the tooth's root. Then it spreads to the surrounding bone.

A periapical abscess is a collection of pus at the root of a tooth, usually caused by an infection that has spread from a tooth to the surrounding tissues.
