If Your Tooth Hurts While You Have a Fever, Contact Us Immediately

Posted on 6/7/2021 by Beautiful Smiles Office
Having a bad toothache is the most common dental emergency. Characterized by tender or throbbing pain, a toothache can seriously disrupt your life. It is important to take action and call our office when you have a toothache.

Understanding What Happens When You Have a Toothache

A toothache can be the result of a cavity that has become infected. Your body will attempt to fight that infection. Pain, redness, and swelling could accompany your toothache. These are signs that the infection is becoming an abscessed tooth.

An abscessed tooth is the result of a bacterial infection inside your tooth. The abscess is a pocket of pus that forms. It can cause mild to moderate sensations and can even radiate to your ear or neck. There are different types of abscesses, but if they are left untreated, the complications can lead to life-threatening situations if they rupture and the infection spreads in your body.

If you experience a rupture, you will eventually develop a fever. A high fever could be a sign that sepsis is happening in your body. If the infection does not die with the fever, and makes its way into your blood, you are in danger. This is a serious condition, and you should contact us immediately. This is a high-risk situation, affecting both your oral and general health.

Toothaches Require Action

It is important to contact our office to get help if your toothache is accompanied by a fever. This scenario can lead to sepsis, which is a serious and sometimes fatal complication when infection spreads in your body. Call us today to schedule a preventative appointment, which includes a professional cleaning and dental exam. We would be happy to discuss any toothaches you may have and help you have a beautiful and painless smile.
