Tooth infection heart

Common Questions and Answers about Tooth infection heart


Avatar n tn my sister has a bad tooth infection and she is on heart medication. she can't see a dentist until tomorrow. her face is swelling up.
Avatar f tn i have a really bad tooth infection, how do i know if it is in my blood stream and what are the effects it will have on me?
Avatar f tn Dear Fellow Dental Sufferer, Its not a question of whether a tooth infection will infect other teeth, something I personally have not heard of. Its a question of what are you doing to cut the infection. contrary to what people with medical terminology might say, you can do a great deal to undo dental infection. 1 Stop eating sweets of any kind. 2 Make some oregano tea. Bring pint of water to a boil. Turn off and place 1 tbsp of dried oregano leaves in the pot.
Avatar n tn the extraction followed after 2 sessions of antibiotics unsuccessfully trying to save the tooth. so, now should i have my heart or anything else checked? This discussion is related to Re: Tooth abscess and heart valve damage.
Avatar f tn Saw my doctor on Wednesday and he said it sounded like anxiety. Dentist on Thursday, said I had a tooth infection. Freaked out, bc I know that this can spread to your brain. I've had a stye and a sinus infection, so now I'm convinced that it's spreading to my brain. My doctor said it's unlikely, so did the dentist. I'm taking an antibiotic and will be getting the infected tooth out next week. Possibly all 4... It's a top molar that's infected.
Avatar f tn I went to a new dentist who said the filling was too deep causing pressure on a nerve in turn caused infection. I had to have the tooth pulled do to infection as I had a total knee replacement and there was worry of infection going there but also in the meantime I have a inflammed thyroid and doctors don't know why? Can this come about from the tooth infection?.
Avatar n tn Antibiotics can be hard on the stomach (erythromycin is a good example). Are you still taking them or are you done now? Which med was it?
Avatar n tn We could all do with a doctor in the house, its ok for them to say everything is looking good but we don't know we have to believe them and when you leave the surgery you're on your own. Also the infection would of been in your blood and could of upset your heart temporarily, i'm no expert just a thought. My father had several heart attacks and the doctor made him have his teeth removed becuase of the infection effecting his heart.
Avatar f tn Mouth infection is serious. Your decisions based on your anxiety are ill advised. Tooth bacteria is proven to cause heart disease. If you do not understand medication instructions, ask questions instead of deciding you know better.
Avatar n tn How do I know if this is a sinus infection - which I am prone to getting - or possibly a tooth abcess (the pain is mostly centered over one of the molars)? It does not hurt any more when I bite down. What does increase the pain is if I lay down on my left side any amount of time, whether it be to rest or sleep. Help???
703031 tn?1398966907 She thinks either he has a blood infection from the tooth or a heart condition. Both his parents died before the age of 55 of heart attacks. DH has a long history of migraines. A recent visit to the neurologist for our daughter had the neurologist concerned about DH's history as well. Thoughts? I lean towards a heart problem and am worried. He would take pain killers for the jaw pain and find no relief.
Avatar n tn I know, I've had a problem with an abscessed tooth for about 3 months now. Even with antibiotics, if he does not get that tooth pulled, the abscess will come back again. An abscess is an infection in the gums. I would assume that it could possibly develop into all sorts of other problems. Gum disease can affect heart health as well. Please get him to seek help.
Avatar n tn I had that problem a few years back, I begged the dentist to remove an aching tooth but an x-ray revealed a pocket of infection compressing the nerves under the tooth.
Avatar f tn How will I know if my tooth infection spread to my brain or other parts of my body??? Scared... I have a sinus infection and eye infection. Are all of these related??? Saw a dentist and doctor recently. I've had all sorts of symptoms for 2 + months. I'm so scared that I hVe a brain abscess. Please help... Thank you...
Avatar n tn He now has an abcessed tooth. Seven years ago he had an abcessed tooth and almost died because he had no insurance and the infection almost reached his brain. I am wondering how much more serious this abcess is now that he has undergone heart surgery. We have no dental insurance and don't know how long it will be before we can get the tooth taken care of.
Avatar n tn IF it will remove tartar, which remains to be seen - it does not stop the infection that has happened at/under the gumline. Antibiotics are usually not enough, either. I do not believe PetzLife is a VOHC (Veterinary Oral Health Council) approved product. ie it has not tried or does not meet the standards to be an effective product.
Avatar f tn The reason for the antibiotics is because your dentist wants to pull the tooth! Wisdom teeth are HUGE and leave a big hole behind...(Mine even needed stitches..) An open hole in your gum is a direct path to your blood stream, and can even invite an infection into your heart...wisdom teeth normally get removed when they are threatening to become "impacted"...If your tooth isn't causing any problems, you may consider just getting the cavity filled... Are you currently on treatment?
Avatar f tn Infection of the heart valves is called endocarditis and the symptoms are extremely variable-- often people have fever and don't have any other reason to have it. I would suggest seeing your physician as soon as possible to have this more fully evaluated. Even after taking the antibiotics you could still have endocarditis-- it takes many weeks of therapy to clear valve infections and sometimes surgery if the lesions are big enough.
Avatar n tn He has traveled to 42 countries so I suspect some kind of infection but the infectious disease doc says nothing shows up. Preantibiotics for the teeth, he did have one blood tests show high CED rate and also was told he had leaky heart valves. My question is what kind of disease, besides dental, could cause tooth abcesses, miniscus problems, fatigue, muscle soreness? I am very worried hope someone can help.
Avatar m tn Usually this a build of plaque around the tooth that allows bacteria to reach the root area and bone. Infection on the inside of the tooth requires root canal. When the infection comes back after this length of time it's just been brewing there. You HAVE to get to a dentist and get an xray to see how much bone is left holding in that tooth and the integrity of the teeth neighboring it. Please don't wait. I did and lost four teeth because I waited too long.
Avatar n tn I heard some where that an infection in your mouth could lead to pareicadious (probably spelled wrong), an infection around the heart sack. THAT IS WHY I questioned the chest pain on my left side, mostly when I lay down at night. So on to the dentist tomorrow. Thank you once again.
Avatar n tn Yes, your chest pain could very well be associated with the tooth abcess - PLEASE go to the doctor. I don't know exactly how it works but pericarditis (infection related to the heart) can result from untreated dental abcess and this could very well be the source of your chest pains. You need to see a doctor and get treated immediately.
Avatar m tn The tooth was left 'open' for 2 weeks during this time to to the infection which eventually subsided. The RCT on this tooth was finally completed 3 weeks ago and has been fine since then. However the past week i have started the feel the tooth 'pulsing' ie i can intermittently feel my heart pulse through it and it feels strange. I have no pain whatsoever just this 'pulsing'. Has anyone experienced this post - RCT? I am unsure whether i should return to my dentist to get this checked out.
Avatar n tn Some conditions include poorly controlled diabetes, knee/hip replacement surgery, valvular problems in the heart, etc. If the infection is extensive and there is a risk for airway obstruction or spread to other places of the face/head, then antibiotics should be given. Usually if the infection is minor, extraction will solve the problem. An infected area is highly acidic due to the production of acid by bacteria in an abscess. An anesthetic solution is basic.
Avatar f tn You seem to have alot going on here to me...again an infected tooth can effect the heart as well as the brain w. infection. Most of us actually do recognize the fact when something is going on w. our hearts because they basically tell us when something is wrong. You need to make a call to the dentist tomorrow and be sure to let them know that since the infection you are getting headaches as well as your heart is not feeling right to you ...
Avatar n tn endocarditis refers to infection of the structures of the heart, usually the valves. endocarditis can be fatal if not detected and treated. taht said, there should be concrete evidence of infection by echo or blood culture before attributing her symptoms to this disease you should certainly take your daughters breathlessness seriously. a cardiologist will evaluate her for any murmmers and might consider an echocardiogram to look at the heart itself.
Avatar n tn He has traveled to 42 countries so I suspect some kind of infection but the infectious disease doc says nothing shows up. Preantibiotics for the teeth, he did have one blood tests show high CED rate and also was told he had leaky heart valves.

Avatar n tn I have never had a wisdom tooth come in. I'm worried what it may be because i don't see a tooth, i'm thinking the worst that there's a rotten tooth inside my gum. Please someone help.
Avatar m tn Just a few days ago I started to feel very bad due to a wisdom tooth thepast when my wisdom tooth would inflamate it would eventually go down, so I waited 3 days..Aftet the third day feeling horrible I went to the dentist and he gave me amoxiline and antifamatory medicine. The day after I took the wisdom tooth out and now I am recuperating. Question number 2: Will those 3 days when my tooth started to infect could cause any trouble iin my heart?
Avatar n tn My wife got her tooth extracted 10 days ago. After surgery, she feel pain and the face swollen a lot. 3 days later, the swollen began to reduce and pain dispeared. Other things seems normal, except her face still a little bit puffy. We went to see Dentist again, He did not do anything except gave my wife another dose of antibody. Is this normal for tooth extraction?
