if you have periodontal decay with an abscess tooth, is it possible cause for seizures?

Never heard of: As a periodontist for a long time I have never heard that. However, you need to see a neurologist for the seizures and see a periodontist for the periodontal problems and a dentist for the abscessed tooth..
