Re: broken wisdom tooth infection

Hi, and welcome to the boards. I do not want to alarm you, but any infection stemming from the teeth or jawline, are potentially serious. With the bloodstream, being so close to the brain, it not something to mess with.

If you have fever, pain, obvious infection, redness, swelling or pain...I would seek immediate medical help. I wish you well...

Re: broken wisdom tooth infection

I agree with writeleft, I would see a dentist or Doctor as soon as possible.
Also, get 2 opinions if you can.
