How long does it take for a tooth extraction to heal

Common Questions and Answers about How long does it take for a tooth extraction to heal


I figured that a nerve was bruised but how long does it normally <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> on average for a nerve <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heal</span>? Will this be permanent? Thank you for any feedback or past experiences posted. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/587014'>Bruised nerve due to wisdom tooth extraction</a>.
it will probably resolve itself but <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> make <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> several months for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> resolve. If its a loose piece of bone, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> will be pushed out by the gums. If its a sharp piece of bone sticking out of your jaw, it'll take some time for the body to break it down and smoothen it. If it bothers you, you can have the dentist re-open up the area and smooth down the bone. The surgery is very minor usually. You may want to discuss it with him/her if you feel that it bothers enough to.
experiences w/ timelines... So, 14 days ago I went into a local dentist <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>oth extracted. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> is my upper left 1st Molar. it was a very unexpected "complicated" extraction for the dentist, and took over 2 hours with a lot of pain & seemingly ineffective shots of numb medicine. When he was finally finished the tooth had came out in about 15 - 20 small pieces, and alot of damage was done to my tissue during the procedure.
My question is if that is normal once it has been removed and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> last. I had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> in for over a year but wanted <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> removed because my husband and I are planning for another baby. So I have one more question, how long could it take to conceive once it is removed? and is it safe to try the first month that it has been removed?
Was vague about price, but I think <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> was going <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> be $50-100 for the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>extraction</span> of two teeth - said he would give me a minimal charge for the loose tooth which would probably come out easily). Vet was good until it came time for a simple administrative request - letter stating cat is healthy enough to fly in-cabin on upcoming trip.
He did say a crown will be necessary in the near future but with Easter approaching and I have to fly out to see family so he won't be doing it now. but to make you feel better it will take 3-7 days to heal. I know how it feels!!
As for pain, a local may numb the gumline, but a regional nerve block needs <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> be done for a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>oth <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>extraction</span> and general anesthesia needs <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> be done <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> prevent wind up and failure of any other pain control methods as well as to be able to treat any other dental issues that are present. to have just one tooth affected with no other tartar on any other tooth surface is almost impossible. Tartar harbors bateria and that bacteria is really under the gumline.
how long <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> for the swelling <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heal</span>. I have not applied any ice or heat <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the affected area. Also is it safe to brush the area where the tooth was extracted ? He says it is safe but from what I understand I should avoid brushing that area.
I tried <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> repost <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> but the max has been reached for daily postings. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> a dry socket <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heal</span>? after such relief, it began to hurt again this evening. There is a sharp pain in my ear and that "Dry socket pain" at the site. I went in for the packing on Monday. I called on Tuesday to ask for a dress changing and was told if it didn't hurt, not to worry. The packing would dissolve on it's own. I didn't press it because when I got the packing, it was excruciating.
just the stitches... i was wondering can you tell me how long does dissolving stitches take to dissolve??....
<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> can <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> months for the hole <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> completely close up and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heal</span>. I had my wisdom taken out in December last year and I still get a little food stuck in my sockets from time to time. its been almost 2 months. You can go back to get it checked out anyways just for your own peace of mind but as long as there's no pain and you can keep the area clean, just let it heal up on its own.
If you are hitting on your temporary crown first before your other teeth, then that could cause your tooth to hurt and feel more bruised. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> a little while for your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>oth <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> recover from a root canal---depending how bad the infection was, etc. it may just take some time for all to heal.
I was able to go back to work after a month post dental treatment, my anxiety had reduced significantly although it was still present and when I had an episode <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> wasn't totally incapacitating. But <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> took ALMOST A FULL YEAR for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> completely resolve! So these things take time. Two things may help reassure you further: You can have residual infection in the bony structures surrounding the site of extraction.
3 weeks back I had R/C on tooth # 3 and was fitted with a same day. This tooth used to have a big metal inlay, started getting excruciating pain, Dr.said abcess, need R/C. Dr.also took mould for Permanent crown and its arrived. after R/C the hot-cold pain sensation and awful pain stopped. But 3 weeks later, I cannot eat on that side. No pain if I just bite together, but with food I get pain. Dentist checked bite, said it was okay.
Use the h2o pic with warm water and see if you can get some healthy condition prior to going thur with any extractions. YOU WOULD BE shocked <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> a wingly <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>oth can last. Save ALL you can though. Good luck and GOD bless you.(from a patient -not a dentist)p.s apparently a lower denture is the hardest to get used too. The teeth you save will help anchor and stabilize the denture. the dentist can alter the denture to match OR your teeth cosmetically treated to match an overdenture.
The contrast is quite amazing when open heart surgery is given to patients who have taken their daily dosage of both aspirin/plavix and very often clexane on top. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> makes one wonder <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> they <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heal</span>.
Dentistry has traditionally been a profession guided largely by mechanical concept. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> not have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> that way anymore. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> is time for the profession to recognize that occlusion and jaw function are governed by physiological processes and diagnose and treat them accordingly.
Endodontist gave me option of more antibiotics or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>extraction</span> (I chose antibiotics). What???? No interim step <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> save this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>oth??! This doesnt' seem right. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> was explained to me by his assistant that a lesion needs to be present for an apico, which I supposedly don't have; that an apico take 6 mos to 1 yr to develop and that this tooth is not that "severe" yet. Any info on this matter would be appreciated!
I'm new HERE, but 'been dealing with HCV since 1985. What did Naomi Judd do? I have NO idea, but if she went east, she's probably as healthy as I am now! :) My story: I found out I had it when fatigue began where it wasn't previously, and then tried to donate blood for a drive, and got "the call". I went to a Dr, got a biopsy, found out it had to be in 1985 (I was exposed to it then), and he said there was enough scar tissue present to indicate that.
On the 14th day of agony I scheduled an appointment <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> have the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>oth next <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> extracted (I knew going in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> this that the two teeth had problems- they were reccomending a root canal and a crown on the other one because the tooth was cracked). He did not suggest or reccomend it- nor was he particularly thrilled to do it. The second tooth came out easily (unlike the first one).
after reading around some more, it seems the nylon Nesbit would be a good choice, it basically is what I was talking about above, but I can't find cost information so far, just that it is much cheaper than a three unit bridge. Still trying <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> see <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> much a mini dental implant would cost, or if <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> is even feasible to do. it is supposed to be cheaper & less heal time than the normal dental implants.
The surgeon that did the bone graft didn't even ask to do a follow up to see if everything is ok. I had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> ask <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> would <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> for the bone graft <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heal</span>. He said 2 months and I asked him if he can see me then to follow up and give me the clearance to get my braces put on. it's been almost 2 weeks since the procedure and everything seems to be ok. Just don't have the confidence with the doctor I picked so I'm on here asking for professional opinions.
He is now the head of the family and it is hard for him <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> get used <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> but he is doing a great job.I do feel guilty about my husband having <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> care of me and he gets so tired. At first I couldn't talk positively about my mom for several years. I finally realized I was avoiding the good stuff because it was more painful. I made peace with everything she said and did. I don't blame her at all. What you said about my brother is very true he is very angry.
g. Armour). Do you still <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> ibuprofen? If you <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> everyday for a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> period of time, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> can really irritate your stomach and even cause ulcers and gastritis, which can give you nausea and vomiting episodes.
