I have had a tooth that has a piece of tooth cracked off

Customer Question
from the root for over...
I have had a tooth that has a piece of tooth cracked off from the root for over 2yrs now and it's been rotten for a maybe a year in a half , the gum between the tooth has swelled up and now pretty Mich takes up the space where my tooth was ...Im not sure
if it's what's causing my blurred vision lately or my heart that's starting to feel funny , all I know is when I sleep with a glycerin coated cloth on it in my mouth at night I feel overall better the next day.. what should I do moving forward.

Hello,

Thanks for putting up your question on Just Answer.

I can assure you that the broken tooth and the swollen gum have nothing to do with your blurred vision, or the funny feeling in your heart. Of course, the tooth needs to be treated, but your other symptoms are much more important.

Please see a physician for your eyes and heart immediately.

Hope this answers your question. Feel free to contact me again for more information. Please leave a positive rating for me if this answer has helped you. I do not get credit for it otherwise.

Good Luck !

Regards,
Dr. Behere

The fact that my rotten tooth is right underneath my side cheek I assumed me just swallowing saliva would be bad since my tooth does ooze some type of brown rotting fluid
Dentist: Dr. Behere, Dentist replied 1 year ago

If you are swallowing pus, that is not good. But that still has nothing to do with your vision and heart.

Those are more important, but get those treated first, then the tooth.

Hope this answers your question. Please feel free to ask me anything more.

If my answer has helped you,please leave a positive rating.i do not get credit for it otherwise.

Regards

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
