In brief: Untreated decay

An untreated decayed tooth is basically an untreated infection.
This can lead to pain, swelling that can effect your entire body and can lead to severe problems, loss of work and income. You will loose the tooth and this will compromise earring , chewing, and you appearance. So get the teeth treated.

In brief: Association

Decayed teeth (infection) & gum disease (infection) can leased to heart/kidney/liver disease.
Can result in low weight pre-term babies. Can infect any and all other organs. Can result in death. Treating your dentition is cheaper than treating any of the associated medical conditions. Compromised dentition can result in mastication problems and thus malabsorption. Please see a Dentist.

In brief: Teeth are important

In order to provide nutrition to your body to stay healthy, you need teeth.
If you leave untreated cavities in your mouth it will end up being more costly to save them. It is important to see a dentist and come up with an affordable treatment plan to save your teeth before you lose them all.
