SURPRISE] usually is registered when headlines tell ot famoui public figures being confined to bed a« a r e · u 1 t of toothache. Yet b e f o r e dental science had reached IU present stage, h i s t o r y was sprinkled w i t h serious Illnesses of world famous personages as a consequence of Infected teeth. There are several kinds of so* called t o o t h Dr. Clendcnlng ach «- stt y a a b" 1 - letto of the Dental Institute of America today, and at least three oro not toothache at all Of the latter, two are actually Jawaches, one responding quickly to treatment and tho other taking a longer period. "Tho first," says th« InitltuU, society of dental scientists, "Is associated with pyorrhcal abscesses, with the cause external to the Dr Qenticnlng will answer questions of general interest only, and then only through his column. tcoth. Guin tissues and bo ay support of the tooth become detached from tho tooth root. A ·pocket' forms along the root, accumulating .food debris which gives rise to Infection Tho tooth becomes loose and the twisting force of chewing may Injure the remaining support- Ing tissues, or food may slip Into the pocket and act like a splinter In the finger, setting up an Inflammatory attack. Extraction Is the quickest and BUT tat relief and recovery is usually prompt." Involve! Dead Tooth The second condition cited Involves a dead tooth, one with a recently dead nervo or with Its norve long removed Infection at the root end has developed anew. This tcoth may have been a chronic offender over a long period without becoming sufficiently aoro to force attention. It Is stated. "But one day when tlwj bodily vitality has been lowered the condition becomes acute, tho jaw swells and fever develops," says the Institute. "Then the patient Is sick, for Infection has invaded the bone beyond the root end. More by-products of this Infection are being generated than the blood stream can carry away and an acute abscess is formed, necessitating skillful care by the attending dentist. "While the swelling grows wore*, the dentists can administer only palliative treatment, for while symptoms Increase, the dlseast Invaders have the upper hand. After a few days nature builds 'antibodies' in the blood stream, and again the patient gains thr upper hand. But not until these 'antibodies' are present In sufficient number to continue the fight. "Thus we see there can be a great difference In onset, severity and recovery between two eases of toothache that look alike to th« average patient."
