No: However recent research indicates a strong correlation between inflammatory oral infections and such things as cardiac, pancreatic, colon, urinary tract inflammatory diseases, low birth weight/short term babies, etc. It's possible our understanding will change in the near future. In the meantime you4 oral infection requires immediate attention. See Dentist ASAP.
