An infected tooth remains infected until it undergoes the root canal treatment or tooth is removed. If it is not treated, the infection can spread and an abscess will form. The presence of an abscess is an indication that the infection has spread to the jawbone and surrounding tissues.

Infection can also spread into your tissues like the face, the floor of the mouth and even the brain.

  • stained or discolored teeth
  • gaps in between teeth
  • uneven teeth
  • worn down teeth
  • excess gum tissue

The duration of your treatment will depend on the number and type of procedures and the extent of the changes you want to make.
