abscess

i am having a rear upper <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> extracted tomorrow - the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> 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
I have never had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>abscess</span> until now. I called my dentist and they are trying to help me to keep cost down bc I have no insurance and xmas is right around corner so money is tight. I have a back molar that broke about 3 months ago ive been trying to save up for root canal but now I think I will need it pulled. The tooth stopped hurting and then I got the pus pocket under it that would flare up but then go down.
He then did a percussion test, tapping firmly on all surfaces of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span>, and I had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>no</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>. So he recommended using Peroxyl to help the gum heal, and just watching to see if the tooth got worse. Well, the gum healed and the foul taste disappeared. no more throbbing. But the sensitivity to hot and cold has steadily worsened. now hot or cold food or fluids causes a fair amount of discomfort.
I don't have a lot of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> but the swelling is looking bad, the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> shattered about six months ago and I used salt on it to kill the pain right now I am taking advil alieve and kefltex I slept with a tea bag with garlic and mint oils inside my jaw Im trying everything I can find and I don't know how to get the swelling to go down any advice?
I am a little worried because the botched filling (meant to be a crown) has signs on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> that this was the cause of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>abscess</span> and my cheek is still very large ( a little more embarassing presenting in public than anything) as there is no pain. The cheek has changed shape but is still large and moved down towards my jaw instead of up near my eye. How long does the abscess take to drain? as the dentist was looking for drainage that never came.
Since then, this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> has been hurting me, causing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> to radiate from my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> to my jaw. It is sensitive - but not overly so - to cold and heat. I went to my dentist and he took an x-ray this week and saw no sign of decay or abscess. What could the problem be?
I am a 24 yr old female and recently had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>abscess</span> that I took care of with 2 different antibiotics (Clyndmiacin and cephelexin). I went to the ER and got the abscess lanced to relieve some of the pressure. I went to my dentist and received a partial root canal. I am feeling no pain in my mouth and the swelling is all gone. now I'm not sure if the infection is in my heart.
after doing some research online I think that I have abscess in my front tooth, but I'm starting to get worried at the fact that my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>no</span> longer in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>. Could that mean my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> is already dead? Also the swelling is getting a little worse every day, I'm not sure how serious all of this is. I have a dentist appointment but it is still a week away, should I start seeking out a different dentist to get in sooner or just wait patiently? thank you.
After, you should feel no pain, and the only discomfort you might feel would be from the healing bone where the body is still fighting the infection outside the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span>. If your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> is mostly intact, there is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>no</span> reason the dentist would need to remove it. How did you chip your tooth? How much of the tooth was chipped off?
i too had an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>abscess</span>,my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> 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.
An abscessed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> is a painful infection at the root of a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> or between the gum and a tooth. It's most commonly caused by severe tooth decay. Other causes of tooth abscess are trauma to the tooth, such as when it is broken or chipped, and gingivitis or gum disease. These problems can cause openings in the tooth enamel, which allows bacteria to infect the center of the tooth (called the pulp). The infection may also spread from the root of the tooth to the bones supporting the tooth.
I've had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> <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.
Keeping in mind, I have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> on the other side that is chipped and filling came out ( <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>no</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> or issues) and after cancer treatments that one will be fixed since the chip is above the gumline.
My implant was completed 4 months ago with the crown and out of nowhere I got an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>abscess</span> in the same spot of my gums above the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span>. Much smaller than other time and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>no</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> or swelling. Can you get an infection and not have to have the tooth removed? Does this happen? Thank you.
Hi. I have an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>abscess</span> that became infected in my lower right side,<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> before molar. Friday Moe ing I awoke to whole lower jaw swollen n numb. I have no insurnace n money is tight. Went to er anyays due to pain. Because of swelling he just looked at me n gave me 500 mg of amoxicillin and 800 mg of ibuprofren. Didn't check anything n was rushed out. Stated regime of amox Friday evening because I passed out from the pain earlier in day. Went to a dentist on sat.
I have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>abscess</span> on a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> that is badly chipped/broken and has a major cavity. It's sort of like 1/4 of the tooth is gone and you can feel the gum in that spot. I saw my dentist 4 days ago and was given pencillin, and ibuprofen and vicodin for pain to rid the infection to have it treated. They are closed on weekends, so I haven't tried to call but am not sure if I should seek out some urgent care.
i live in pain for the past 28 years of my life... Two days ago a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> that has been cracked for about 6 months developed an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>abscess</span>.. 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.
I called endodontis in the morning and he retreated the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span>. I look like a chipmunk now but <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>no</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>:). Well my question are: 1.Why it started to hurt now??? Did I do something to agitate it? This abscess was visible on pano that was taken in Febr. 2.Is there any home remedies for swelling? Thank YOU!
I also rinse with salt water and mouthwash aside from regular brushing. I am very <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> tolerant so it's <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>no</span> trouble in do this. I just wanted to make sure I am not causing further problem.
I have been cleaning it regularly with salt water and the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> is not in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span>, but mostly in the gum/cheek area above the back molar. I went to see the dentist (I am staying in Bahrain to visit my dad who works here, and went to a dentist here). The dentist, in my opinion, wasn't very good, and told me that I needed a root canal (Duh), and to take an anti-inflammatory, (duh again). He said i didn't need antibiotics as the infection wasn't that big and my body would fight it off.
I had a bad tooth ache and have been told all my life that dentists are far too expensive to go to without insurance to pay for them. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> got so bad I had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>no</span> choice. After an exame, dental x-rays, pulling a tooth, and ect... The total bill was $100.00 and I was expecting $5,000.00. So, ask the dentist how much he will charge for his services.
Your tooth probably was abcessed, and an abcessed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> is never pulled until antibiotics have resolved the infection. Also, novacaine does <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>no</span> good with an abcess, if absolutely necessary to extract an abcessed tooth, then you must be put to sleep. So, you are correct, it was all pain you were feeling! Sounds like a lousy dentist you had!!!! pain and odor is usually associated with infection. I would get another dentists opinion just to be on the safe side.
Also, as a note, sometimes these infection of the tooth can result in severe <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> or sometimes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>no</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> at all. If the pulp becomes necrotic and the tissue dies, there's no nerve to indicate any pain. Sometimes patients will experience pain if they bite down on the tooth and the periodontium (ligament again) moves, then it'll send feedback of pain. Hope that helps.
I felt I was conned by dentist into doing my root canal, cause I had no <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> before he poked on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> and I felt <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> (don't know how he poke, or maybe he was digging into my gum line or something), but he concluded that I needed root canal. now, I am experiencing blooding at the root canaled tooth.
my lymph glands are also touchy on that side only. the wisdom <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> is raised and swollen, but i have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>no</span> fever, chills, or nausea. could the wisdom tooth have caused a break in my jaw bone, or eaten away at the jaw bone itself and how much immediate danger could be involved in this condition? i am aware that i need to seek treatment from an oral surgeon, but cannot afford to do so at this time.
All okay first day, then cheek and jaw started swelling and have not improved. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>no</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> 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? Thanks so much for any help/advice!
