26-Year-Old Man Dies from Tooth Infection

Updated: Dec 17, 2018


Toothaches should never be ignored. A man in the U.S. died from a tooth infection even after having been treated with antibiotics.


Key takeaways:

  • Vadim Kondratyuk, a 26-year-old man, died from a tooth infection that spread into his lungs and bloodstream.

  • The young man had a tooth abscess caused by bacterial infection in the tooth. Rarely does a tooth infection lead to death.

  • A tooth abscess should be promptly treated with antibiotics, root canal or even tooth extraction to prevent spread of disease material.

If the infection doesn’t drain, it could spread to your jaw, head, or neck—or, like in Kondratyuk’s case, to you bloodstream.
