Can a bad tooth cause all over body aches and fatigue?

I know having bad teeth can be dangerous… That isn’t the question here. I guess what I want to know if can having a good number of seriously infected teeth cause all over body aches, and fatigue?

Thank you to all who answer!
Also, please just tell me how you know this. Thanks!
I do know that bad teeth can lead to heart issues, and things like that. I am just curious about the issues with fatigue and body aches…Thanks to all who give answers!!!

Best Answer: a abcessed tooth can cause poison to run through your body, causing aches and pains, and yes even death....go see a dentist sweetheart

    Yes it can.

  3. Yes, very possible! Actually if a tooth is infected bad enough it can (God-forbid) kill you. It can cause alot of other problems from what I understand.

  4. yes, yes, yes

    its an infection just like any other……if you get a cut on your foot, and it gets gangrene your whole body will ache and you will be feverish.

    Absolutely it can. Go to the dentist or start rinsing with salt water (half teaspoon of salt, one cup of warm water) and take some pain killers and antibiotics!!!

    If you get an infection from one of your teeth then you will prolly have those side affects. It can cause you to get sick easier then if you didnt have the infected tooth.

    Yes it can. I know because my mom is a nurse of 35 years and she is always on everyone about keeping their teeth healthy. And I know people who have been through some pretty bad stuff from bad teeth.

    The health of your mouth is actually a good indicator of your overall health. I’m guessing you did not know that infected teeth can lead to endocarditis, a heart infection:

  11. Any time bacteria enter your body from a wound or tooth decay your body recognizes them as foreign. Of course we have natural bacteria in our mouth and intestinal tract that stay there and we need for good digestion. These bacteria also must not enter our blood. Our blood and urine should be sterile in a healthy human. Once the body recognizes bacteria entering from a cavity or wound your immune response is activated. This includes increased inflammatory compounds and antibodies to help fight the infection. If the infection is not remedied organs and tissue can suffer from this chronic inflammation.

  12. I have a tooth that cracked in half behind my bridge of 4 teeth that has a huge infection..I am on clydomyacin and amocicillion…..the bridge and tooth have to come out…but trying to get money together for implants….my entire muscles in my body are hurting and its weird how I feel…a biopsy in my leg showed I had a infection in my body ..could the tooth be causing this…they also said I had vasculitis in my legs..kind of panicking
