Dying from sepsis?!
« on: December 29, 2013, 06:09:58 PM »
I know this is going to sound awful, so please don't judge me (too bad) I've been dealing with this bad tooth in the back lower part of my mouth. It started maybe 6 years ago when it broke,  then it led to half the tooth falling out and having occasional absesses that would always go away on their own. Now the tooth is just the root, and this last week half of it is really lose and about to fall out. Now I'm freaking out that I'm dying from sepsis! By the way, I've been terrified of going to the dentist since I was little (I was molested by mine) and I have no insurance.

You are most certainly not dying from sepsis; you would know about it if you were. That said, you must overcome your fear of dentists (easier said than done, I know) as rotten teeth can release substances into the bloodstream that increase inflammation, in turn increasing your risk of heart disease.

Is it swollen and in pain? You should have it taken care of any way you can. If you live in the states try to contact local dental schools - sometimes they do extractions on a sliding fee. My friend got their tooth yanked for something like 50 bucks using community resources. There are options out there if you look for them.

It's a lot less swollen than it was 4 days ago. It's barely even swollen now. It doesn't hurt . My fiancÚs uncle is a doctor and he just called him to see if hell give me some antibiotics! He's really good about doing that but we haven't heard back from him yet.
