Rotten teeth are commonly known as teeth with severe decay, and the problem can be both painful and embarrassing, particularly if those teeth reside in the front of your mouth. The problem arises when patients don’t practice good oral hygiene habits for a long period of time while also consuming foods that aren’t good for oral health. If left untreated long enough, the decay can lead to an infection that could move into the rest of the mouth and gums and become incredibly dangerous.
Depending on the severity of the decay and the potential for infection, the treatment for rotten teeth may vary from fillings to root canals all the way to extraction and/or dental implants. If you’re experiencing pain or sensitivity in your teeth and it’s been a while since you visited a dentist, it’s important for you to visit a qualified dentist for a checkup as soon as possible.
