Possible consequences

If an infection is not treated, the bacteria can destroy the entire pulp of the tooth and then, without hindrance, enter the jaw bone.

This can lead to destruction of bone, purulent infections, a general weakening of the immune system or to ailments in other parts of the body. Particularly patients with artifical heart valves, artificial limbs or with a history of endocarditis are at risk.
