What can happen if I do not remove an infected tooth?
Left untreated, the infection can spread to other areas of your body, resulting in a potentially life-threatening infection. In severe cases, the bacteria can travel toward the heart and settle in the heart lining, a heart valve, or a blood vessel. This can cause a condition known as Bacterial Endocarditis. Another severe outcome is Ludwig’s angina, a condition where the infection restricts one’s airways.
