Having a Fever Along with a Toothache is Never Something to Ignore
Posted on 4/15/2019 by Frank Sciabica
If you have a toothache, then you want to consider all of the symptoms that you have. This is because when there is a fever that comes along with the aching tooth, then you need to make sure to have this looked at.
Why a Fever is a Bad Thing with a Toothache
If you don't have the flu or a viral bug but a toothache that doesn't go away and continues to persist, then you may have an infection. This infection can travel through the body and into places you don't want it to reach. It can become dangerous to the person.
This is why it is important to speak with our office when you notice a toothache. Having it taken care of right away is always the best way to go about any sort of oral pain.
If you do not contact us immediately, and the pain persists, plus you develop a fever, then you need to contact us right away. This is a dental emergency and you need to speak with our dentists regarding a pain medication, anti-inflammatory and antibiotic that you should be started on.
Usually, when there is pain and a fever, you will also notice a painful, pus filled area under, to the side or inside of the infected tooth. This is an abscess that is filling with the infection. Our dentists can take care of this issue for you.
