Can an untreated infected molar cause another infection in my body?

Yes it can. If you have abscessed teeth or even one bad abscess then it can drain into your stomach, etc., and cause you to have a high fever and more trouble than you would want. Please see your dentist and keep your teeth in good condition. The modern dentists of today are pain free and it's no big deal. I use to be terrified of dentists, but I now fall asleep in the dentist's chair on occasion.
