Hi, I was just wondering if an infected tooth could give me a sore throat and ears. I had a root canal done on a tooth about two years ago and there seems to be a hole where particles of food keep getting trapped. Although I floss after eating I now find it hard to eat on that side at all. The gums around the tooth are inflamed after eating and sometimes bleed a little bit when flossing and cleaning.
About the same time as this I started to get a sire throat. I have seen a GP about my throat and have tried antibiotics etc with no relief. I was just wondering if my tooth was infected could it be causing my throat to have become sore and inflames and now my ears as well.
