Depending on your age and diet, there are many rotten tooth symptoms that can be attributed to tooth decay. At the first signs of discomfort and pain in your teeth or gums, consult your dentist to check for an infection.
If your tooth has decayed past the point of getting a filling, then a cleaning and other treatment options can help to restore your smile.
Rotten teeth are caused by destruction to the normal shape and structure of your teeth. As bacteria forms plaque around healthy teeth, sugary foods and acids can erode your enamel. Regular brushing and drinking plenty of water curb the effects of tooth decay, but in some cases the decay may lead to a rotten tooth.
Here are symptoms of rotten teeth due to decay:
Schedule an appointment with your dentist at the first signs of decay.
The number one cause of tooth decay is poor hygiene. Children and adults should brush twice a day and floss once a day to prevent harmful bacteria from bonding with sugars in your mouth and producing acid.
Other causes of rot include:
Treatments for tooth rot may include replacing the tooth altogether with root canals and extractions. Other methods of partial repair include fillings and crowns. Fluoride treatment can restore your enamel if the cavity is fresh.
