Can a Root Canal Infection Spread?

If someone with a dental abscess does not seek treatment, the infection can spread to other parts of their body, such as the jaw and surrounding tissues. Unfortunately, an abscess will not go away without treatment, and not addressing it can lead to the infection spreading. 

The Mayo Clinic states that patients with weakened immune systems are at additional risk for the infection to spread because these individuals may not be able to fight off the spread of germs and those with healthy immune systems.

 How to Prevent Dental Infections

Routine visits to a dentist and proper daily oral care at home are your best defenses against infection. If you develop any dental abscess symptoms, or if your dentist detects an infection, treatment decreases the chance of the infection spreading and help you maintain a healthy smile.
