Signs of Spreading Tooth Infection

Posted on 8/8/2022 by Office
Signs of Spreading Tooth InfectionTeeth infections start from a single tooth. In most cases, it is an infection that can be stopped if detected early. Unfortunately, most people ignore visiting dentists, hence the infections can grow and spread to other parts of the dental structure and cause a full-blown problem. If you can recognize an infection early, you can save yourself a lot of trouble. Below are some of the ways to identify a spreading infection.

Spreading Coloration of the Teeth

The coloration of your teeth can be a sign of an infection that is spreading fast. If your teeth have turned from brown to yellowish and the color is spreading further, you have to see a dentist. The coloration of the teeth is a sign of tooth decay in most cases. However, to be quite sure of what is affecting your teeth it is essential to get the opinion of an expert on the matter.


The other sign of spreading infection is continuous bad breath in your mouth. Although someone may experience bad breath on a single day, you should be cautious if you keep on experiencing the same. The first warning sign of mouth infection is bad breath. If you constantly have to deal with bad breath talk to your doctor for examination.

Pain in Your Gums and Teeth

Pain can be a sign that your gums or teeth are infected. Unfortunately, some infections may spread silently. That is the reason why it is recommended to visit a doctor from time to time. When you visit a dentist you may be able to discover any potential infections before they spread further. Pain can be a sign of an infection that has been growing in your gums silently. If bacterial infections attack your tooth pulp, you may feel excruciating pain.
