What are the Symptoms of a Spreading Tooth Infection?


Posted on 12/10/2021 by Evan Admin
What are the Symptoms of a Spreading Tooth Infection?Several factors cause tooth infection. For example, bacteria can accumulate on your teeth and trigger tooth infection. The most common sign of a tooth infection is a toothache. When you notice a persistent toothache, you should come in for treatment immediately. This is vital because leaving a tooth infection untreated could see it spread to other parts of your body. Several symptoms show a tooth infection is spreading. They include:

A Sickly Feeling


If you feel unwell, the tooth infection could be spreading to other areas. For example, feeling a constant headache that doesn't respond to painkillers could cause almost the tooth infection is advancing to other parts of the body. Likewise, the feeling of fatigue even when idle is a clear indicator of the spreading infection. It would help if you came in for treatment immediately after you started noticing these signs. This is important because some tooth infections could result in tooth loss and other severe health conditions.

High Fever


A fever isn't always a good sign. If you are sweating a lot and your skin is flushing, it could signify that tooth infection is spreading to other areas. The constant feeling of cold, even when the temperatures are hot, could also mean the same. This is a dangerous sign that could go beyond the everyday oral health problem. Therefore, any fever symptoms, especially after developing a severe toothache, should be treated with caution. If you come to us with this problem, our dentists will use highly specialized equipment to get to the root of the problem. It is also important to note that delaying treatment can only worsen the condition. Therefore, you should come in for treatment immediately you notice signs of tooth infection. Schedule a consultative appointment with us for more information on tooth infections.
