Dealing with rotten teeth is not something anyone wants to deal with, but the harsh reality is that many people will need to deal with rotten teeth at some point in their lives. Improper dental hygiene and cleaning can lead to serious issues down the road, so it’s extremely important to stay vigilant with oral health care throughout your life.
In some cases, rotten teeth can be saved. This depends on how severe the rot is, and if it has spread down to the root. For patients with healthy roots, the chances of saving the tooth are the greatest. In many cases, some of a patient’s teeth can be saved, while others will need to be extracted. Many people have a combination of dental implants and natural teeth. This combination can yield a solid bite that looks very natural and last for many years.
In cases where all of the teeth need to be extracted, dentures and dental implants are both options. There are solutions for all levels of tooth rot, so if you are concerned about losing your teeth, you should see your dentist immediately to come up with a plan that works for you while also giving you back a sense of normalcy when it comes to appearance, comfort and ability to chew.
