Common Questions and Answers about Abscess jaw symptoms

abscess

by the time i got to the er the doctor told me that my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>abscess</span> was 1 inch by 3/8 of an inch big. that is pretty large for an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>abscess</span>. with something like this the longer you put it off the worst it will get. hope you feel better soon.
I wanted to know if these <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> were brain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>abscess</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span>. I am a bit of a hypacondriact and I always think the worst is happening when it's usually very normal issues. IE if i have slight chest pain, I will think I have heart issues. That sort of thing. I think maybe my anxiety is getting the better of me. Any help would be appreciated.
Over a year ago I noticed a lump in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span>, under where the tooth was. But I never really had a toothache, maybe just a couple times and very short lived, like a couple hours. Is that "normal"? I had the tooth pulled yesterday. The dentist said that now that the tooth is gone, the lump will go away too. It's way too swollen and painful to touch right now, but how long should it take for the lump to go away? I'm also on Penicillin V K, for 8 days now.
I still need 2 crowns upper right, and one crown lower right with a few more cavities filled. My dentist says there is no signs of dental <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>abscess</span>, but I have been having a lot of bad symptoms that seem to be getting worse. I feel really ill all the time. All my teeth hurt, It comes, and goes for what seems like no reason at all. My face feels tight, and puffy sometimes. My eyes burn. I get headaches, and sensitivity to light.
We thought 19 (the PFM) was causing the galvanic shock <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> so it was removed. But the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> continued for two days (and 6 dental visits!) until 18 (the Zirconia) was removed and then the shock symptoms stopped immediately. I know this makes absolutely no sense. I've researched it extensively and cannot find another single case of galvanic shock with Zirconia. I realize it is usually the other way around. When the permanents were eventually seated, they were both PFMS.

It has been several weeks and the nodes in my neck are still swollen and now the ones under my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> are swelling up and I have stiffness at the base of the back of my head and neck.. I went back to have some fillings on my front teeth and explained to my dentist the swelling hasn't gone down and it was worse, he didn't seem to think it was a tooth related problem.. What do I do? I feel horrible and have no energy. No fever and little to no pain.
I've had a tooth <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>abscess</span> since the beginning of this year sometime. I went to the ER because my jaw had become so swollen that it was completely ridiculous. They gave me penicillin which I took (28 pills, 3 times a day with food). When I finished that bottle I realized that there was still a sort of blister on my gum even though it was much smaller than it used to be.
1) Yes, it is very well possible that the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>abscess</span> may grow within the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> and weaken the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span>. I haven't seen a broken <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> due that before but it can spread within the jaw bone and cause extensive damage. Another more likely scenario is that the abscess will escape the jaw bone and spread to the soft tissue of the head which is extremely dangerous. It can spread down the neck and cause breathing problems or spread to the spaces near the brain.
Since you say the pain started in your jaw a couple of months ago and now you feel it in your ear, I'm thinking it could be TMJ - which is a disorder of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> joint. It can cause many <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span>, including ear or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> pain, as well as headaches, etc. Do you ever catch yourself clenching your jaw? Does your jaw crack or catch when you try to open it wide, such as with yawning?
You could see if any of the draining areas have any evidence of infection, like the throat, tonsils, the skin, tooth <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>abscess</span> or an ear infection. If you develop any additional <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> like sore throat or ear pain or fever, consult your primary care physician for proper clinical assessment. In the meantime for pain relief you can use OTC Tylenol (acetaminophen). Regards.
Hello, I have a Black Lab mix, roughly 1 1/2 years old and she recently has been having problems opening her <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> to its full range of motion. She first displayed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> very suddenly and it caused immediate concern as she could no longer pickup her toys (large toys) or even yawn because it would cause too much pain. Furthermore, it appears that there is swelling behind her left eye, and she has very dry skin and is constantly itching herself, but we’re unsure if these symptoms are related.
We have just hit on the idea that our problems may be tooth/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> related; our <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> are so similar to all of yours here, so we may be able to help each other. If any of you would like to, PLEASE go over to ************ and share your stories (and maybe cures?!) with us!

Hello, From the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> it sounds like boils or abscess. Boils are caused by infection of the hair follicle by staph aureus. . Hair follicles that are blocked by greasy creams, petroleum jelly, or similar products are more vulnerable to infection. Keep the area clean and apply warm compresses and some topical antiseptics. Also wear loose-fitting cotton clothing and use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove. Avoid any kind of cosmetics.
Hi, How are you? <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> cancer include pain or numbness in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span>, and a lump or other abnormal growth. A biopsy is usually done to confirm diagnosis. Other differentials include an infection or an abscess. It is best that you have this checked by your doctor or dentist for proper diagnosis and to ease any worry. Direct clinical examination is important. Take care and do keep us posted.
Hello, From the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> it does not look like a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> pain due to an allergic reaction to this topical treatment. It looks like temporomandibular joint pain to me. TMJ pain disorders usually occur because of unbalanced activity, spasm, or overuse of the jaw muscles. Diagnosed by x-rays or CT of the joint. Treatment involves warm compresses and anti inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen or diclofenac. If the symptoms persist then please get an examination done from an ENT specialist/dentist.
She told the dentist and he looked it over and said it was fine. The next evening she was in extreme pain in her neck and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span>, it escalated so we took her to the ER. The ER doctor said possible TMJ, contact dentist. And he put her on vicodin for the pain. The dentist was called and said go to a TMJ specialist. TMJ specialists wouldn't see her for 3-4 weeks so we took her to a chiropractor instead for pain relief. It helped a bit. The next few weeks she had difficulty breathing.
I had a 2 fillings performed on an upper tooth on about a little over a month ago. Before I went in for the filling, I'd been having terrible tooth pain and had developed an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>abscess</span> on the gum above that tooth. At the same time, I was experiencing a pressure/pulling sensation down my jaw, around my ear and down my neck. I was first given a round of antibiotics, and the pain, abscess and pressure/pulling sensation all went away.
If there point tenderness and pain on opening the mouth, your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> could be due to temporomandibular (TMJ) joint arthritis. This is the jaw joint and inflammation of this joint can cause pin on opening the mouth and tenderness on palpating behind the ear. If you have had a recent throat infection, it could also be due to lymph node enlargement. It could also be due to local causes like tooth infections, tooth abscess or periodontal disease.
A week ago I could barely open my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span>, I set a dentists appointment however, the night before that my face blew up in swelling. Not just normal swelling either. My face was rock hard and huge. I went to Urgent Care. I was admitted to the ER 'due the size of my face' and eventually transferred to another hospital 35 minutes away that had an oral surgical team. When I arrived there, I was told I'd be having an operation. I was a little thrown, but I usually just let the doctors do their thing!
It sounds by your description that the tooth has a pulpitis in which the dental pulp inside the tooth is inflammed and causing you pain. With the swollen lymph nodes and other <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span>, you may be getting an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>abscess</span> which the antibiotics help to resolve but it not a long term solution. You should go to a dentist (whether or not you decide to go to the same dentist is up to you) and get it checked out. It may need a root canal or it may need to be pulled.
I am 19 years old and when i was roughly 15/16 i got spiked with ecstacy which led me to clench my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> so hard that i was convinced it was dislcoated or something on the right hand side of my face as it was chronically clicking and grinding. The next day seemed to be fine and progressively i started to get pain in the right hand side of my face.
A few days ago, my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> began to become sore to open. The left side of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>jaw</span> feels full and sore. There has not been any trauma involved, and I will admit I haven't always been the best with Dental Hygeine.
I am not having any sinus <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> whatsoever (runny nose etc). I never had these <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> before the tooth was re-filled. And, my tooth tends to hurt when I chomp on it when the other stuff is bothering me. Do you really think it's unrelated?
Your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>symptoms</span> can be from many different things. If ibuprofen and chiropractic have helped then that would indicate some muscle/skeletal problems. The TMjoint can be involved with some of what you have described. The tooth symptoms seem to be independent, but there are times that muscle pain can be referred to a tooth. If your dentist finds no explanation for your tooth pain I would recommend waiting on any treatment.

dentist took X-ray which was negative (i guess meant negative for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>abscess</span>) and said tooth is sensitive and I could either 1) look into root canal or 2) maybe try sensodine to see if sensitivity clears up or 3) maybe switch out the white filling for a silver filling - maybe the white filling is irratating the nerve. i tried the sensodine and pain went away october, 2008 - tooth still feels good, no sensitivity and had my routine dental checkup. thurs Nov.
