i am having a rear upper tooth extracted tomorrow - the pain will be slightly less than I have had over the last two weeks - this has been flaring up and down since February, but the last episode meant that I looked like I had a golf ball tucked in my cheek - my left nostril was numb, my head was too sore to brush my hair or touch, my neck hurt when I moved my head, my ear was crackling - the nhs dentist refused to drain the abscess but gave me antibiotics, these didnt work and I had another cou
My adult son has a tooth that needs extracted. His insurance requires preauthorization (!?), so he saw a dentist and the request was submitted. In the meantime, he was prescribed 10 days of amoxicillin, which he did not take properly. It's been 2 weeks since his visit and his jaw and cheek and swollen and painful. He went to the ER, at his dentists suggestion, and was given ibuprofen and 500mg pencillin 4 x day, which we are monitoring, to be sure it gets taken.
He said that he's got a tooth abscess in a healthy tooth and that the tooth should be extracted. He said it is unusual in cats and that they don't know the cause. He also suggested some antibiotics for a few days before the surgery to help with the infection. Just wondering if it is worth trying to save the tooth. Go through the course of antibiotics and see if he gets better. My vet made me feel like I was just being cheap and that conventional wisdom is to just remove the tooth.
i too had an abscess,my tooth had to be extracted(it was the tooth that already had root canal treatment,i had cracked it) and was on 3 different antibiotics.it took me just over 2weeks to heal.
Im going back to Oral Surgeon tomorrow to make sure tooth abscess infection didn't return. AND, then to Neurologist in a few weeks...if i can last that long?!
Will I still be able to get a root canal, or will the tooth have to be extracted? Currently, it's loose. I can touch it and see it move a little relative to the other teeth. But I assume that has something to do with the swollen gums/cheek? The swelling has finally started to go down now that it's been about 24 hours since starting the z-pak, but I'm worried as I would really prefer a root canal to extraction. Thoughts?
i live in pain for the past 28 years of my life... Two days ago a tooth that has been cracked for about 6 months developed an abscess.. i got the routine pain along with a bit of swelling, however no bubble in the gum line.. I woke up yesterday with a bit of swelling in the cheek, and put myself on amoxicillin which i have plenty left from previous incidents.. Normally when i have an abscess, i'll switch between amoxicillin and penicillin to keep my body from adapting to either type of med.
Same thing again, Was given the same meds and everything was fine. I was referred to a oral suergon to have the tooth extracted. Made an appointment but cant be seen till 8/8 { EVERYONE IS REFERRED TO THEM}. Now as of 3 days ago the same thing has happened.A friend of mine gave me some of her amoxicillin to take untill i can get to the dentist again. Now Day 2 of meds my cheek is swollen. The infection is in #3 tooth upper molar. Btw the tooth is broke.
Any advice you can give me would be very much appreciated..thank you, Caroline :) This discussion is related to <a href="/posts/Dental-Health/tooth-abscess-and-swollen-cheek/show/664046">tooth abscess and swollen cheek</a>.
I do not want to have it extracted until absolutely necessary. Plus the cost the periodontist charged me $1100 to extract that tooth that was twice rootcanaled/crowned and build up the bone so with the cost of dental care is SW FL I am in a quandary. Thank you.
The following day I visited a near by dentist who extracted this tooth (swelling was up to my left eye and I was having problems breathing) dentist showed me the scan-nearby teeth were not infected however...I had an LVI princess crown on my tooth behind the extracted tooth which was pulled off during my extraction. Dentist put my crown back on then said due to the abscess the tooth should drain.
Anyway, the dentist isn't sure if the tooth can be saved or not, so he referred me to a periodontist to see if a root canal could save the tooth or if it has to be extracted (probably the latter). Unfortunately, I couldn't get in the periodontist for a few months. This was back in May. A couple of weeks ago I developed another abscess in the same spot. So the doc put me on the same antibiotic again.
i posted before. i had an abscessed tooth and the abscess spread into my cheek. my dentist put me on keflex but after 10 days there was still noticable swelling in my cheek. so now the dentist has put me on a stronger antibiotic. when i woke up this morning i felt a very large "bubble" on my inside cheek.
) Afterwards, pressure sensitivity improved but gum swelled on the linqual side. Dentist treated with Cavitron and said tooth would need to be extracted if swelling continued. Four days ago, had tooth 14 prepped for crown. All okay first day, then cheek and jaw started swelling and have not improved. No pain in tooth 14. Made an independent appt with Oral Surgeon but can't get in for three weeks. Any ideas/suggestions? And, why would tooth 14 exacerbate 29? Or, is it a separate problem?
The tooth needs to be extracted, but it can't be extracted until after the infection is gone. It is Friday now, and I am still in a lot of pain. He gave me pain meds, but I thought that the antibiotics should've started working by now.
I had a root canal done on tooth #29 about ten years ago after an injury to the tooth. All seemed well until I noticed a swelling under this tooth a few weeks ago that hurt when pressed. I called the dentist and was told I had an abscess. She prescribed me 150mg Clindamycin over ten days for the infection and referred me to an endodontist. The endodontist retreated the root canal a couple weeks later. A few hours after the retreated root canal became horribly painful and I noticed some swelling.
I am worried I have a dental infection spreading from neglected dental work, that was complicated by a mis-diagnosis. Sorry for dragging this on, and on. Does a tooth abscess ever not show up on a X-ray?
I am worried I have a dental infection spreading from neglected dental work, that was complicated by a mis-diagnosis. Sorry for dragging this on, and on. Does a tooth abscess ever not show up on a X-ray? Possibly draining out before X-ray is taken? draining into roof of mouth or sinus?
The healing process seems to be going fine, however, I'm concerned because the dentist didn't prescribe me with any antibiotics. I thought this was standard procedure when you get a tooth extracted because of an abscess? I'm concerned that he didn't clean out the wound and the abscessed area well enough and that I don't have any antibiotics to ensure that I don't get an infection. What are the symptoms of an infection from where a tooth was extracted?
I was told to get the tooth extracted because of my medical condition (Type 1 Diabetic). After I got it drained my dentist put me on 4,000mg of Amoxicillin a day becasue I had to get rid of the infection and the swelling had to continue to go down before he extracted the tooth. In my opinion I feel your husband is on proper treatment. However I'm uncertain about the effects of it being long term and the possibility of blood being in his semen.
I went to the dentist recently with pain in my tooth he said it was an abscess tooth and started a root canal, that was very unsuccessful. My jaw swole , he changed my antibiotic to something stronger, but that did not good, so with three days left on the antibiotic he extracted the tooth yesterday but he did nothing about the abscess. My jaw is still swollen. Should he have done something with the pus or abscess?
I had a tooth extracted about 6 months ago, but a piece of the root was left in the gum. Recently I developed an abscess from the root and went back to my dentist. He gave me amoxicillin which I finished taking a few days ago, but the gum boil is still there. It's like a big lump on my gum. I've been referred to have the root fragment removed by a different dentist, but the appointment isn't for another 2 months. Should I worry that the gum boil is still there? Should I go back to my dentist?
Hi Doctor, I have been to several doctors including an ENT for my ear problems. I have had sinus pain/ pressure/ and migraines. The ENT subscribed something but it didnt work. The other doctor said theres nothing wrong with me. Instead of saying, " I dont know whats wrong with you, I would have preferred that or recommend me to another doctor or specialist. In my mind, I was thinking I am fine but its all in my head, as my doctor pretty much put it.
He said a upper tooth on that side showed infection and it had already had a root canal and crown, so he retreated the tooth. He said the tooth smelled horrible while he was cleaning it out. He wasn't going to put me on antibiotics but I kind of insisted. It has been several weeks and the nodes in my neck are still swollen and now the ones under my jaw are swelling up and I have stiffness at the base of the back of my head and neck..
I had a tooth extracted two weeks ago, following a painful abscess. Antibiotics cleared up the infection but my dentist decided the tooth should be removed. It was a bottom tooth, second from the last one at the back. It has been healing up very well and generally I have no pain. However, I've noticed that when I exercise (I go to Zumba) I sometimes get a throbbing from where the tooth used to be and wondered if this is normal?
