When bacteria enters the inner tooth or roots, it can cause infection. Pain is often a sign of infection, but some people don't have any symptoms.

Key takeaways:

  •  A chipped or cracked tooth can allow bacteria inside and cause an infection.
  •  A cavity can be filled to prevent bacteria entering the inner tooth.
  •  As gum disease progresses, infection can spread to teeth roots.

Never ignore bleeding gums, pain or a bad taste. See your dentist for assessment and treatment.
