Oral Health: Could An Infected Tooth Kill You?

You might not think that visiting the dentist is a matter of life or death, but it could be. It might surprise you, but your dental health can have a definite impact on your overall well being. In fact, poor oral health can be a risk factor for many health conditions, including…

… and more. That’s why good oral health and regular checkups with your dentist are a vital part of maintaining a healthy body. Your dentist can help preserve your healthy smile and watch for signs that point to underlying conditions that need to be addressed.

It’s Just A Toothache Pain is your body’s way of warning you that there’s a problem - and it should never be ignored! Recently, a healthy, young father from California suffered from a seemingly innocent toothache. Within days, it tragically cost him his life. What started as a tooth infection quickly spread to his lungs and bloodstream. It’s tempting to ignore a little toothache, hoping that it will resolve on its own, but dental emergencies seldom improve and often worsen if they’re not treated promptly. A little cavity can grow into an abscessed tooth, or worse. It also means that your treatment could become more extensive - and expensive, over time. In this man’s case, delayed dental care cost him his life and that’s too high a price to pay.
