Dental problems can lead to serious problems if it's not taken care
of. Bacteria from the mouth can enter the bloodstream, resulting in
damage to the heart, liver, kidneys and lungs.

and I must say - I was unaware that tooth problems could cause so
many complications. Is it common for a bad tooth to cause a
temperature? What other complications could result from build-up on
teeth? I'm curious because I have a 3yr old, and two that are 5yrs
old. I've never had their teeth cleaned. Is this something I should
look into?
