Despite being fully grown adults, many people still carry an irrational fear of going to the dentist. This is despite the immense advances in dental treatment which reduce any pain felt by the patient. If you avoid your dentist, you could be causing serious damage to your teeth. For example, if you don’t have cavities filled in, the result can be a fully decayed tooth and all the issues that come with it.
The supposed ‘pain’ you feel at the dentist is nothing compared to what you will experience with a rotting tooth. Unattended cavities cause a serious toothache which is felt as a sharp, shooting pain in the tooth. It gets to the point where eating or drinking hot/cold foods leads to agony and you may even experience bleeding gums. Rotten teeth also have a nasty habit of causing pain in the ears & jaw and may also cause headaches.
Hiding Your Smile
This is what you’ll need to do if your teeth start to rot because they begin to look grotesque. Decayed teeth tend to have holes and can turn black. After a certain period of time, infection begins to set in and nasty looking pus starts to form around the gums.
Once teeth decay to a certain level, bits of the tooth start to fall off. Rotting teeth lead to bad breath and literally leaves a bad taste in your mouth. Finally, the tooth will fall out and leave a less than aesthetically pleasing gap in your smile. If you really neglect your teeth, serious medical complications can be the consequence and it is not unusual for a person’s facial structure to change because of rotting teeth.
If you want to avoid the horrible scenario portrayed above, simply book an appointment with your dentist twice a year and brush your teeth twice daily.
