that is the reason some people with heart disease need to have antibiotics before any dental
work; however, HBP and
a higher than normal HR is not indicative of heart disease. Usually the type of problem you would have as a result of an infection would be a form of dilated cardiomyopathy, myocarditis, pericarditis or endocarditis.You would have been pretty sick, more than likely in the hospital. Bottom line: your tooth didn't cause these kinds of problems.
