High Blood Pressure and tooth abcsess...in pain...HELP

I was recently diagnosed with high blood pressure.
I just began treatment taking Lisinopril, and Hydrochlorot less than a week ago.
and to make matters worse, I now have an abcsessed tooth I need to have pulled (it may have already been abcsessed, but I just now noticed it)

My question(s) are: can the abcsess tooth effect my BP?
and, is there going to be a problem when getting Dental work done because of the new meds I'm now taking?

and is it even remotely possible that the abcsess is what suddenly has cause by BP to be high?

I know these are a lot of questions, that may be unrelated, but I'm new to this whole high BP thing, and in pain.

Thank you in advance,
D

call your dentists office and ask about your new meds and if you need to take any precautions with them before, during and after getting your tooth worked on. i really don't think an absessed tooth would cause high blood pressure. if you were having pain with it, it could raise your pressues, but you said you did'nt notice it until you were diagnosed with high blood pressure. take care. remar
