Tooth infections are normally painful. They can be caused by decay, fractures, misalignments, trauma or other underlying medical issues. But how exactly does a painless tooth infection occur? Keep reading to find out more.
- There is no pain involved in the early stages of a tooth infection as the pulp has not yet been damaged.
- A strong immune system may prevent a tooth infection from being symptomatic.
- An untreated tooth infection may cause adverse effects such as tooth loss and gum disease.
Brush your teeth and visit your dentist regularly for routine checkups -- so any decay can be caught early, before the pain starts.
