can a tooth abscess cause a bladder infection? tooth abscess has been going on for about 4 or 5 yrs now...on and off antibiotics, cannot afford to have bone graft or tooth pulled...bladder infections have been chronic and i notice them more when my teeth are acting up. also i drink cranberry juice regularly, aside from dental problems, i am a healthy 28 yr old woman.
Yes, there is a possibility but rare. However, if a person has kidney disease he can develop infections of oral cavity teeth, gums and bad taste, bone loss.
I, therefore, recommend you to report emergency room for evaluation to identify cause whether a dental abscess is from kidney problem or kidney infection is from a dental abscess and accordingly, you would be relieved and it will save your health expenditure as well in moving here and there.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
