Dangers of Infections Around the Root of a Tooth

Posted on 7/26/2021 by Janie Scholes
Dangers of Infections Around the Root of a ToothTaking proper care of your teeth helps prevent infections. However, if you fail to brush or floss your teeth, harmful bacteria will start forming in your mouth. This will lead to dental conditions like gum disease and cavities. The continued presence of bacteria could also affect the root of your teeth. This is because bacteria weakens the tooth enamel, gaining entry into it. As a result, it could cause several infections around the root. It could also cause an abscess at the tip of the root. Infections around the root of the tooth have several dangers.

Tooth Sensitivity

When there is an infection at the root, you are more likely to experience tooth sensitivity. This is experienced when you drink hot or cold beverages. Tooth sensitivity will cause sharp pain when chewing food. If you experience this symptom, get in touch with us immediately. Our professionals will examine your tooth and establish its problem. Keep in mind that root infections can be very dangerous when left untreated. Getting it treated sooner will prevent total damage that could see the tooth removed.

Tooth Loosening

The root anchors the tooth into the gum. Therefore, when the root is infected, it could cause the tooth to loosen. This is a risky condition that should be prevented at all costs. Loose teeth can come out anytime, risking total loss. Therefore, when you notice a loose tooth due to root infection, you should visit our offices immediately. We will examine it and restore it to its original state. A loose tooth can be dangerous to your oral health. For instance, biting into hard foods with a loose tooth can cause it to fall out, weakening the surrounding teeth. This is why it is important to take proper care of your teeth. Visit our offices for more information on the dangers of root infections.
