An infected tooth can cause death. But it isn't really from infecting your brain. It will go into your airways and swell them up then you can't breath. A tooth infection can become very serious.

The infection can go into your bloodstream. A person I knew was very sick; they did all these tests. His wife insisted it was his teeth, and it was!!!!!!!!!
