hi i think morphea can be related to bacterial infection of teeth if it is bacterial in origin as staph infection causes both morhea and tooth can be treated with cefixime or any antibiotic of pencillin group to get it cured.morphea will not hacve any systemic manifestations because it is localised scleroderma
