How do I know if my tooth infection is spreading?


High fever is a sign of your body trying to fight invaders, and if it continues for a long time, there is a possibility for a condition known as sepsis setting in. A low fever may also indicate that the infection is spreading, so neither a high fever nor a little fever is suitable for your health.

A tooth infection will more often result in other diseases, and when you realize that your breathing rate and heart rate are abnormally first, this is not the time to visit an emergency dentist. The symptom indicates that you need to see a doctor since the infection is spreading.

You may realize a change in the colour of your urine to chocolate, which is an indication of dehydration. Stomach ache starts after some time; vomiting and diarrhea may follow, indicating that the toothache is spreading. At this juncture, do not call a dental office but a doctor.
