Can Dental Abscesses Cause Cataracts
Should i be concerned if my wisdom teeth taken out about a month ago. Does cataract surgery take longer to heal than wisdom tooth extraction, also, is it more painful?

Not a known cause...: Having a dental abscess can cause bacteria and their byproducts to leech into the bloodstream and travel to other parts of the body. In healthy people the immune system can usually hold its own but sometimes the bacteria can cause changes to the lining of the arteries or other organs. So if you think that you may have a dental abscess then by all means seek treatment for it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is pericarditis seen on CTA? Also can pericarditis be caused by dental abscess? And if so, how long after dental abscess would symptoms occur?
Pericarditis: Pericarditis can be seen on CT scan imaging - actually just yesterday I saw a case. It depends to a large degree on the duration of symptoms, plus the organism involved (germ) and other factors. A dental abscess could pre-dispose to this because of possible bacteremia -or circulation of germs after a nasty infection. The length of time could be anywhere from a few days to weeks before onset. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Dental abscess: Teeth that have a small pimple have been infected for a relatively long time. After the tooth nerve dies, the bacteria persists and advances to out of the tooth and into the supporting jaw bone. Over time it spreads and the pimple forms as a vent for pressure relief. It is very common for this eventual pain to radiate to other teeth, but the source is usually just one tooth. See an endodontist. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

You're right...: Most tooth abscesses rarely affect adjacent teeth. This is a remarkable sign of a healthy immune system that can hold the infection 'at bay.' the infection tends affect the supporting bone and not destroy blood supply or nerves. If the cause of the infection is removed (extraction or root canal) our bodies can heal the affected bone while the blood/nerves still survive. Amazing isn't it? ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
