Can really bad infected teeth affect the rest of your health?
I have some really bad teeth... I have six teeth left on on the top part of my mouth and one of those is about 3/4 of the way gone,I have one that the back of it is all but gone. and one on the bottom that is really bad. the rest of the teeth on top have cavities. When the teeth flare up, my chin and the cheek on my left side get sores and things like bad acne on them...these are very tender and sore. I ahve no dental insurance. and I was wondering if all the infection in my teeth could be causing my health problem, and if so would I be able to have health insurance pickup for the pulling of the teeth and dentures.

yes, it can lead to serious systemic infections. try locating a dental school in your state. they can offer a discounted price for all dental work.


galnextdoor
yeah of course
u will feel uncomfortable


leothemonkey2004
Yes. Get a friend to pull them out. For cheap false teeth get a set of fangs from a joke shop.

Yes, very bad teeth can harm you and in extreme cases they can even KILL you! Any kind of infection can go to your heart. Depending on where you live, there are free clinics for people who don't have the money or insurance, that's what I do. Also, if a toothache gets too bad, like mine does sometimes, you can go to any hospital emergency room, and by law, they have to treat you! Some times a dental clinic will give your name to an agency that will cover the cost of having your teeth done, including free dentures. If I were you, I would check into that, call around.

Definitely, bad teeth cause you lots of health problems. Better have them checked out by your dentist now.

A bad infection in any part of your body will affect the rest of your health. I live in Australia, so i'm not sure how the health system works over there, but i hope you get your teeth sorted out. Just make sure you let your doctor know that this problem with your teeth is making you ill. Good luck!!

BAD TEETH DO EFFECT YOUR GENERAL HEALTH.
So getting a dental insurance would be better.Decay in most of your teeth must have reached to the inner layer called nerve or pulp of the tooth because of which it is leading to such problem.
you require a multisitting appointments for setting the problem right.
and the main thing would be the more u delay ,the more the problem increases and it becomes more expensive.
so act fast.may you have good health soon.

Please see your dentist. Those areas that are swelling are abcesses (infections). You need to be placed on antibiotics, and YES, those teeth can affect your general health. In addition, dental decay/abcesses can affect your heart by producing bacteria bacteria that gets into the bloodstream. Dental insurance is tough to come by in most areas unless you have an employer who offers it. Health insurance might cover some of the cost of the extractions but not for dentures. You could try your county dept. of social services and see if they will approve you for Medicaid. Then find a dentist who accepts it. You need to get this taken care of because it will cause other problems later on.
