A problem with a cavity, or unaddressed gum disease, can actually worsen if you go too long without the appropriate care. As a result, you can deal with consequences that include infections, and even tooth loss! Your Rochester, MN dentist’s office is ready to provide the appropriate care when you are suffering from and oral health issue. We can also provide routine services that defend you against problems in the future.
An Internal Infection Can Lead To Big Problems – Including The Loss Of Your Tooth!
Ignoring a toothache, or unexpected sensitivity in a particular tooth, can lead to complications that can be severe. The problem you are ignoring could be with an advanced cavity. As time passes, decay can create issues with an internal infection, meaning oral bacteria have entered your pulp, and can now attack the tooth’s living tissues. A root canal treatment can put a stop to this problem. If you do nothing, bacteria can spread to the point that your tooth needs to be extracted.
