Not only should it be pulled by someone who knows what they are doing, but the cavity has to be treated so that ALL of the infection is totally gone! ITS A SERIOUS THING. . [/quote] I found a dentist that will take the tooth out for 99$ but I dont get paid till Friday. [/quote] [b]Most likely the dentist will not be able to pull it before putting you on antibiotic for a week or two first[/b], the infection can enter the blood stream and go straight to your brain. Look in to [b]carecredit[/b] also, Can apply and be accepted in 5 min. It is a no interest health care credit card, Iíve had mine for over a decade and I hate credit cards. Great for emergencyís like this. [/quote] That's a myth. Google it. [/quote] Internal drainage is of more concern as growing infection makes space within the tissues surrounding the infection. Severe complications requiring immediate hospitalization include Ludwig's angina, which is a combination of growing infection and cellulitis which closes the airway space causing suffocation in extreme cases. Also infection can spread down the tissue spaces to the mediastinum which has significant consequences on the vital organs such as the heart. Another complication, usually from upper teeth, is a risk of septicaemia (infection of the blood) from connecting into blood vessels, brain abscess (extremely rare), or meningitis (also rare). Depending on the severity of the infection, the sufferer may feel only mildly ill, or may in extreme cases require hospital care. In 2011, Kyle Willis died from an untreated dental abscess in Cincinnati, as did fashion designer Hugo Boss, in 1948.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dental_abscess A 24-year-old Cincinnati father died from a tooth infection this week because he couldn't afford his medication, offering a sobering reminder of the importance of oral health and the number of people without access to dental or health care. According to NBC affiliate WLWT, Kyle Willis' wisdom tooth started hurting two weeks ago. When dentists told him it needed to be pulled, he decided to forgo the procedure, because he was unemployed and had no health insurance. When his face started swelling and his head began to ache, Willis went to the emergency room, where he received prescriptions for antibiotics and pain medications. Willis couldn't afford both, so he chose the pain medications. The tooth infection spread, causing his brain to swell. He died Tuesday. http://abcnews.go.com/Health/insurance-24-year-dies-toothache/story?id=14438171 http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20061115165841AAJnX8d Guy locally by me died ingesting bacteria during routine teeth cleaning. Canít find an article it was 20 years ago. But it is more common than people realize. [b]Unless you just mean they can pull it and put you on antibiotic after, but they will stick you on something a lot stronger like Cipro if they do it that way.[/b] [/quote]
