It can change your looks and make you look up to 10 years younger (based on the latest studies), it also has the most significant effect on your health! everything you eat goes through your mouth.
So if there is an infection in the mouth, whether it is gum or tooth related, it can affect the whole body and cause kidney disease or heart disease!! Yes, I know it sounds strange, but it is the ugly truth! Bacteria start growing in your teeth, so you only need a simple dental filling.
So you ignore it, or you are not aware because you have not been to the dentist in a while, or you have been to the dentist. Still, you did not have x-rays done, so the dentist was unaware of a cavity.
You do not take care of the cavity, so the cavity reaches the nerve.
The nerve is the tooth's heart. The infection spreads to the blood vessels feeding the tooth and travels via your blood vessels to your whole body! That is how you can get renal failure or stroke at very late stages.
