Dental Sepsis

Cavities and gum disease can potentially cause infection that spreads beyond the mouth, resulting in sepsis.

Signs that may indicate infection in the mouth include:

  • Bad Breath
  • Bitter taste in the mouth
  • Fever
  • Pain
  • Temperature sensitivity of the teeth
  • Swollen gum tissue, sensitivity of the teeth
  • Swollen glands in the neck
  • Swelling in jaw or to the face

If you notice any of these signs, it is important to see a dentist as soon as possible.
