From the antibiotics? Or the actual abscess.. I read somewhere that it is possible for the abscess to still linger until all the dead cells are removed so the taste/smell can linger. Any ideas? I am not in horrible pain so I don't believe it is a dry socket. I can't really describe the taste other than unpleasent. Also, brownish small globs were coming out of the area the night after my extraction.
My husband has had problems with a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> for about 9 months. Just recently some pus drained from the tooth. He has also had a low grade fever. I am wondering if a side effect from a long term abscessed tooth can be blood in his semen. A doctor put him on Amoxicillin 1500mg every 8 hours for 6 doses then 500mg every 8 hours for 14 days. Is this proper treatment?
I want to ask I have abscess sometimes formed a small circle then fleak out with abscess and blood..then its smell <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> decayed ..I have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> decayed but inside of teeth that retain.It is started a years...about the symptoms..esp.abscess in my nose..
This blockage is what causes the smell. Think of it like a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> abscess or sebaceous cyst, but, this problem can be around the eyes, ears or throat/neck. This can interfere with your energy levels, your brain function, and in general, the way your body “feels.” It is an infection and I found that dealing with it in a way similar to a tooth abscess is what worked, for me.
I have a bad smell and taste coming from the tooth.Plus it is so swollen that it feels like I have a hard bump on my gum underneath that tooth.My question is.Does this sound like it is infected or abcess?I'm very worried because I am hearing all these crazy stories,like the infection could go to your brain.Is that true?I am going to go in to the dentist soon.But I figured I would take a antibiotic for it before hand to save money.I am taking clindamycin.Will this help.
If I rub my finger in the gum area just above the crown, it smells really bad. I can even smell it in the floss after I have flossed the crown <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span>. My dentist did the ususl once-every 6 months cleaning but the smell persists. He took an X-Ray and he ruled out any tooth decay and he says that the gums look fine. He sent me to a gum specialist and she too didnt find anything. At this point both me and my dentist are out of options.
There was an awful smell which he said was the abscess. I am taking amoxcillin at the moment and it now 8 days since the extraction but my jaw is still swollen the same as it was before the extraction, is this normal should the swelling be going down by now, it is not really painful. I have two days of tablets left should I go back to the dentist if it is still swollen when I have finished my tablets. Also I'm going on holiday is it OK to fly if jaw still swollen.
Dear Snail, I read both of your posts, and the other one asked if a tooth infection could cause that odor you have. I have several ideas about your condition. The above poster made a good suggestion, too. About your tooth infection, yes, this can cause a stink in your mouth, and since it's near your nose, it will smell bad to you, and when you open your mouth to talk, others will then smell it, too.
I have an upper left molar which required an emergency root canal during a hiking trip in France due to an abscess in 2011. They redid the root canal (or finished it anyhow) when I returned home, but were not entirely happy with how it was done. Since then, I've had fleeting pain around the tooth, but repeated xrays showed nothing at all unusual. in October 2013 I was in Hong Kong for a job interview and the gum above the tooth became sore and bruised.
I smell it when I floss that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> but not when I floss the rest of my teeth. If I push on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> the smell seems to be released. So, I went back to my dentist who claims the crown is just perfect and gave me some recommendation of a swish. Well, now it is driving me crazy, the smell. I have really good cleaning habits and all my teeth are visibly really nice and clean. I just came onto this site today to find an entire thread about this phenominan (sp?).
At first they were ok, but then I started noticing a terrible taste and smell in my mouth. I would brush my teeth and rinse, but nothing worked. When I finally went to my Dentist, I told him about my concern. He smiled and said that it was probably just the cement that had disolved (for lack of a better word) and didn't say anything else. He made an appointment with me 2 wks later.

Hello, There are many causes of bad odour from the mouth like gum disease, halitosis, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> decay, abscess etc. Poorly fitting dental appliances, yeast infections of the mouth, and dental caries are few other common causes. Respiratory tract infections such as pneumonia or bronchitis, chronic sinus infections, postnasal drip, diabetes, acid reflux and liver or kidney problems are few other causes of bad breath.
I posted last week about my cat with a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> abscess. I took your advice and he had the tooth removed along with the pre-surgery blood work. Everything went well and he is recovering nicely. When I brought him back from the vet, his littermate sister who he had never been separated from (they are 5) did not seem to recognize him. It's now been 2 days and she's hissing and growling and acting like she doesn't know him at all.
Biting down on them was painful, but pain was caused no matter what angle my tooth was pressed from, and the top <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> seemed to have swelling underneath as it was the only <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> that would touch other teeth. The dentist said that it was possible for it to just be trauma, such as torn ligaments, and he could not tell if there was a hairline fracture. He had me come back almost two weeks later (just under 3 weeks after the initial trauma).
Hello On a trip to the south April 12 2008 I got abscess <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> a very bad case of it too days of no sleep and a very swollen face on my left side I got medcation for it and the pain went away after 5 days, then 2 weeks after around April 26 I startet feeling a mild pressure headache, and my wife told me I had really bad breath, then 5-6 days later I got a sinus infection that last for 5 days(had strong smell of ammonia in nose for 3 days), then it was runny nose and I could also feel stuff going
I believe it may be a smell in between my gums maybe or even a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> but none of my teeth are hurting me its just a smell that just recently started happening. I need to know how to get rid of this horrible taste in my mouth . Is there anything I can do to get rid of this smell? I believe its my gums but i dont kno.
His sense of smell seemed especially sensitive. If he smelled something, then he couldn't eat it - even though the smell was not bad. Now it has evolved to the point that most everything tastes wrong to him and he just cannot eat it. It isn't that he can't swallow, he just gets nauseous if he puts the food in his mouth. Any suggestions?
The dentist would X-ray me and say there is no abscess. He would tap on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> and it wasn't especially painful (only is occasionally tender when I "chomp" down on it). in fact, confusingly, the pain which spread to the jaw/sinus/neck would often be very bad and the tooth might barely hurt, if at all. Eventually, after a while, the condition seemed to have settled down and it went away for well over a year, maybe almost 2 years, with barely any noticeable pain.
All the symptoms of still needing a root canal are there, such as percussion pain etc, and my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> has a smell about it. So I have decided to have the root canal which I am having tomorrow. The issue is the tooth is sensitive when i push on the inside of the cusps, and I worry about a crack. After doing this if i push the other way I hear a slight crackling noise, as if there is a crack and the tow sides of the tooth are pushing back together. I am so worried that I have a split tooth.
Ive had an abscessed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> and got that extracted. 2 of my teeth are broken to the gum and one is just the shell of the tooth nothing inside and half broken. I dont have swelling or bleeding gums , I dont have pain just broken decaying teeth.
hi my husband had toothache went to the dentist and they said he had an abcess and gave him antibiotics (weeks course) , before he even took his first tablet he said he was probing the abcess (which he knows he should not have done) when he blew his nose there was pus and he says it is the most foul smell he has ever smelt he says that the taste makes him want to be sick , he took all his antibiotics (finished the course) it was ok for 2 days but its back , he had a dental appointment thursda
|The tooth did not hurt too much, so i let it go for awhile. Of course, I developed an abscess and ended up having the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> pulled, and the adjacent tooth-#9-had a root canal done at my expense. I was told that my jawbone was infected and I was given antibiotics. The abscess has never gone away, and i still have a raised area that is visible on the front of my gums. 9 months ago, tooth #7 broke 1/8 inch above the gum line.
As I was looking at my mouth I noticed a small bump near a tooth that I needed a root canal on for almost a year now, actually the small bump has been there for awhile but never paid it any time. So I took a pic and sent it to my sister whom is a dentist and she said its a abscess <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> that's infected and since the tooth is at the top the infection is in my sinus.
The foul smell could be due to local or systemic causes. Local causes like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> infections, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> abscess or periodontal disease. Some medications can cause this foul smell. They are more common in smokers, in people with poor dental hygiene, with vitamin deficiencies and are known to be associated with malabsorbtion also. You will need to consult your dentist who will examine you and determine the cause so that appropriate therapy can be initiated. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
