Untreated Dental Infections – Silent Threat

Most of us consider dental problems to be relatively minor, just inconveniences. We do not expect them to be life-threatening conditions. And the good news is that in most cases dental issues are not immediate “life and death” issues.

But untreated dental infections can be one of these silent, but potentially fatal threats. Although they are relatively uncommon, serious bacterial infections resulting from dental diseases are still responsible for thousands of hospitalizations and dozens of deaths each year.
