Society tends to put a lot of value on bright, perfect smiles, which can result in patients perceiving bad teeth as a source of embarrassment, with some even afraid to show the dentist. Let’s change that.
Saving Rotten Teeth
Let’s be honest; misshapen, decaying or rotting teeth affect your life and self-confidence. In addition, the way your teeth look affects how you feel about yourself and how others perceive you too. But what’s not common knowledge are the several easy procedures that won’t break the bank and reverse the effects of decayed teeth for good.

Permanent teeth are supposed to last a lifetime
Once our permanent teeth emerge, they are supposed to last a lifetime. But as dentists, we understand and know that that’s not always possible, and thankfully modern dentistry has supplied us with the tools to keep our dentition intact for longer.
Sometimes, damage may occur, or unforeseen circumstances might limit the life of a tooth. For example, gum disease, decay and tooth breakages cause problems that often involve cosmetic and general dentistry coming together to correct.
Dental pain can be acutely painful for some, and you might believe that the tooth is beyond saving, but you can trust there’s always something the dentist can do to repair your smile.
And whilst aesthetics are an important part of your smile, by ignoring rotten or bad teeth, you can put yourself at risk for more complications in the future:
A seriously chipped tooth often leaves the internal structure of the tooth exposed, which invites bacteria to invade and destruct. We often see infections arise as your tooth becomes more prone to cavities.
Also, damage to the nerve of the tooth is also common, with dental abscesses forming in some cases, which is dangerous to your overall general health.
You could cause an infection. Since a seriously chipped tooth often leaves the inner structure of the tooth exposed, it is more vulnerable to cavities and infections. You could damage the nerve of the tooth or an abscess can even form, which is extremely dangerous to your health.
If you let gum disease progress from gingivitis, you’ve missed the window where we can abolish and reverse gum disease for good.
As soon as gum disease progresses to periodontitis we will only be able to manage your symptoms and prevent the condition from getting worse.
Cavities certainly do not disappear on their own. Instead, they only get bigger and bigger. And the bigger a cavity gets, the more serious issues you will experience with the health of your teeth, gums and even other parts of the body.
Waiting will only increase your pain, expense and further risks to your health.
There are lifelong consequences for ignoring gaps caused by tooth loss in the mouth.
- The bone beneath the missing tooth will begin to deplete, which is an irreversible process referred to as resorption.
- Other neighbouring teeth can begin to move and shift out of their natural positions.
- The risk of gum disease and decay heightens.
- Bite force is not evenly distributed, which adds pressure to other teeth, causing them to break.
- You are at risk for losing more teeth.
