Re: what is the worst thing that can happen with an abcessed tooth

well ,it can be quite dangerous to leave a bad abcess tooth ,some have died through the poison of the blood ,where it had burst !!
not said that to scare you as its only a small minority that has died but its possible

but if your allergic to anti biotics ,im sure theyre must be a alternative to anti biotics?
or next procedure was to have the tooth out

but i wouldnt leave it for too long before getting it sorted

The infection could also go to the brain. It's really close to that part of the body.
