Untreated tooth for years.

I feel scared after reading that leaving an abscessed tooth untreated for years can cause health issues related to the brain like brain abscesses. I have a tooth that has a very deep cavity and has been abscessed many times and I think the root of the tooth is dead because I don't feel any pain anymore. now, I'm very afraid that I am in danger and I feel like I am going to die please can you give me any advice.
