Effects of Rotten teeth?

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: busymom  (2 years ago)
I brush my teeth 2-3 times a day but I still ended up with three rotten teeth. One of them was broken in half. Lately, I keep on getting migraine and I have been feeling tiredness and irritation. Are these the effects of the rotten teeth? What can I do to for the meantime to deal with these symptoms? I will have them remove soon; I am just fixing things with the insurance company. Any input would be highly appreciated.

Decay is more from dietary causes than from brushing habits.

Why the heck do you want to remove your teeth rather than save them? What is your plan? Do you look forward to losing your teeth and having dentures? Do you know your front teeth start to wear abnormally as you lose back teeth? Back teeth support front teeth.

I am not sure about tiredness and irritation, but rotten, decayed teeth can cause facial pain. Untreated infected teeth often land patients in the hospital for expensive visits.

Hello. There are people who maintain good oral hygiene but still develop decay because they are at high risk. It may be due to dietary habits and genetics as well. If our oral cavity contains more acid producing bacteria than the good ones than we are more prone to decay. When you visit you dentist you should have regular check-ups and monitoring of your oral health. You may even ask for MI paste which will provide additional Calcium and phosphates in your saliva to favor tooth remineralization. But fluoride containing mouth washes and do not forget to floss. Dr. Henry is extracting teeth should be last resort.
