But some of you out there are a little more strong willed and take drugs to minimize the pain just do you don’t have to go to the family dentist. Let me tell you now, if you do that, things may only get worse.  The dental infection in your tooth can lead to an dental infection in your gums call Gingivitis, which I am sure you have heard of. But did you know that Gingivitis can lead to a worse dental infection called Periodontitis which is significantly worse.

If you get Periodontitis, your gums may separate from your teeth and your teeth may become loose or out of alignment. Then, the dental infection may travel to the bone that supports your teeth and gradually that bone will begin to dissolve.

So although you might think you can live with the pain, things will only get worse if you don’t go to your  dentist and get it taken care of.
