Eventually it will cause an infection that can spread to other parts of your body. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Was wondering if your gum can become infected because a filling chipped, can it cause a root canal?
By itself, no: You can develop an infection in the gums if food debris is left between the tooth and the gums, allowing bacteria to grow and use the food as a food source.

Gums cannot attach itself to any part of a dental implant but a gum can attach to a tooth root. Yes or no?
No, Not True: Gum tissue will attach gently to an implant surface via a junctional epithelium. This attachment is very weak and is easily broken with a probe at the dentists office which is why it will bleed and then in turn cause recession. There are a few implants that actually have a true connective tissue attachment shown histologically under the microscope. ...Read moreSee 10 more doctor answers
