What many don’t realize is that a bad cavity can cause additional problems and become a pretty big deal if left untreated, including recurring headaches. When a tooth gets inflamed, the nerve endings may cause the pain from the tooth to spread to other areas of the head. As a cavity progresses to a more serious tooth infection without treatment, the infection can spread to other parts of the body through the blood stream. At this point your dentist along with your primary care doctor may need to be involved in the treatment.
Get your cavity filled before more health issues arise.
