Answer to your Health Question

Question: What can happen if I don't get these very rotten teeth out? I have a shunt in the right side of my brain and it scares me. Can the teeth affect my shunt? Amy

Answer: Dear Amy,

Rotten teeth need to be treated properly so they do not cause infections. Treatments for a rotten tooth vary depending on its state. Common alternatives are root canals or tooth extractions.

Dental health is very important as problems with teeth can cause many health problems not just on the mouth but overall in the body.
