I have a tooth that has decayed past my gum line am there is a hole there with only some of the roots lefts. It doesn't hurt as bad as a tooth I had a ear ago that got very infected, so i guess it isn't infected as bad but I know it is a little. I know it has to come out I already have an appointment scheduled for consultation before surgery. My only question is, will I know if the infection is life threatening or could it kill me without warning? Does there always have to be swelling, feeling sick, severe pain Etc or can you die from an infected tooth without warning signs. PLEASE HELP!!!
