    Bad in the sense of "rotten", yes. Bad in the sense of "discoloured" or "maloccluded", no.

    Absolutely. A bad tooth infection can get into your blood and kill you dead. Really. Go see a dentist already.

    Having a decayed tooth opens a Passage into the Bone And blood stream, In the Uppers One can get as was mentioned sinus infections BUT Thats NOTHING compared with Bacteria getting into the blood which goes directly into your Heart Infecting IT as well IF your Immune system is tired It can simply Overwealm the body's ability to fight the infection off Folks with Heart Conditions Are always given Amoxicillin to fight off bacterium

    Yes, because the blood supply to the body runs through and around your teeth, bacteria can get in. It is reported that it can cause heart attack and infections almost anywhere. An infected tooth ( the gums) can give off a clot that can go directly to the brain and kill a person in an instant. I know of a teenager who went to sleep with a bad infection and never woke up.

    If a wisdom tooth or molar gets infected it can spread into your sinuses, and if left untreated, yes - it could very easily kill you.

    Sure. If they're so bad that they've somehow become lodged in your heart, definitely.
