Infection from bad tooth

Common Questions and Answers about Infection from bad tooth

infection

Infection from a tooth can affect the rest of your body. I already experienced it. I had an infected tooth under a crown and it made me tired all the time. I think it is because your body is trying to fight off the infection. It was deteriorating the bone beside the tooth and breaking it down. If I didn't have it pulled, it could have affected the tooth behind it possibly is what I was told. The tooth underneath the crown was fractured and not worth saving.
Not sure what the cause is for you but in the UK we get free dental care whilst pregnant because tooth problems or an infection can cause problems for the baby.TCP and salt water usually ease my wisdom tooth, it will help stop any infection too .
My filing is now loose and I know that it is going to fall out any time now. I have a bad taste coming from that tooth now. I beleive that I will eventually need that tooth to be extracted. Now I have developed an inner ear infection (with no pain in the left ear).that has caused me a great deal of discomfort and imbalance. My first experience was a spinning sensation and thereafter, dizziness and vomiting. I am on antibiotics and dizziness pills along with a cortisone shot.
He said I have a whole in my tooth and it will cause very bad infection if I do. I am in tears and the pain is getting worse. What do I do? I do not want to take any pain pills and I will not take any.
For a couple of days the gum surrounding the tooth was swollen and painful to the touch, the swelling and pain went away, but it has been replaced by a rotten taste coming from the tooth that has been there for the past week. The taste has become milder but it's still there, the tooth itself is painless. I've been rinsing my mouth with vodka every night before bed to try to kill any bacteria that might be there.
how long should I wait before having the tooth extracted? will the extraction speed up recovery from the infection?
How long after starting amoxicillin before the pain from a tooth infection goes away? I saw the dentist and started taking amoxicillin about 30 hours ago. I have a root canal scheduled a week from now. But the pain is as intense as it was prior to starting the treatment. I do have type II diabetes treated with diet and pills. I know this can prolong infections. But wow, I sure would like the pain to decrease. I'm taking vicodin and it still hurts! Thanks!
I finally, with the help of this forum, got the tooth pulled a year after the initial infection. You may have symptoms from the infection but i highly doubt it will get any worse since you are on antibiotics and getting professional care.
Saw my doctor on Wednesday and he said it sounded like anxiety. Dentist on Thursday, said I had a tooth infection. Freaked out, bc I know that this can spread to your brain. I've had a stye and a sinus infection, so now I'm convinced that it's spreading to my brain. My doctor said it's unlikely, so did the dentist. I'm taking an antibiotic and will be getting the infected tooth out next week. Possibly all 4... It's a top molar that's infected.
Also, is the fluid in my lymph node from my inner ear or from the infection in my tooth???? Help! Next stop ENT if I can't figure this out!
should he have pulled my tooth with the infection being that bad? i stopped taking the pain killer ccause it put me into a coma state. now ibouf. not going back for the bridge from him. what can i do with all this infection?
return to your dentist and have it checked. salt, tea, oregano will not cure your infection. if you are in horrible pain the infection is bad and you need antibiotics before it spreads.
Once the implant root surface is contaminated,it's very difficult to be free of infection.It's possible the low grade infection from the implant causing your night sweating symptom.Seeing a physician is advised.
my nasal/ear passages have been swollen lately as well. When exposed to cold air it caused pain from my front tooth through my sinuses to my head. Dentist told me it was sinus infection & to see doc. Doc said sinusitus & gave antibiotics again. I went to an ENT who says everything looks "fine" in my sinuses so far (waiting for insurance to ok a CAT scan).After antibiotics I found that there was still pain in my upper molars.
None of these things will get rid of the infection or the pain but it will give you some relief from the pain while you wait for the antibiotics to ne prescribed and kick in. Moith pain is no joke.
However, just recently since the new crown fit, a somewhat stronger odour also comes from between the crown and the tooth forward of it (albeit from below the gum line). I’ve had a second opinion, with no problems found. I cannot overemphasize just how awful the odour is. Trapped food I can tolerate-just a quick floss and the smells gone, but this bad odour just cannot be removed. It’s knocking my confidence, and is ruining my life.
i'm hope someone can help?for over 6 years i've had a constant bad smell coming from my nose, i don't think anyone else can smell it but me, as i've asked colleagues/friend if they noticed anything, and they've all said no, this has been really getting me down and has really had a bad effect on my quality of life.
But I'm still feeling very weak and sweaty with horrible headaches and constant tooth/jaw pain. Is it possible to get a fever/headache from a tooth infection? Or is the fever just an isolated viral infection? Do I need to be checked by my doctor or dentist?
Periapical infection associated with root canaled tooth generally results from incomplete canal debridement or oburation, or root fracture.Elimination of the infection can be achieved through, redo root canal, periapical surgery with retrograde filling, root amputation(multirooted tooth), or extraction with thorough curettage of socket.Seeing an endodontist is advised.
There is no corrosive leakage. I also doubt that it is a yeast infection. It might be that you are irritating your tongue from the broken filling. The sooner you can get the toth fixed the less expensive it will be in the long run and at the same time you should have your tongue checked out.
I'm not on antibiotics because I was on the a few weeks ago and got very, very ill from them. My question is, how would I know if the infection from the tooth that is still in there is getting out of control where I would have to get antibiotics before the root canal appointment (which is in a week and a half). I'm worried about getting a really bad or scary infection because I had blood poisoning already once from another infection...

Ever since I have gotten pregnant my teeth have been getting really bad. I woke up this morning with my face swelled up an my tooth hurting. Can an infection in like this hurt the baby? I'm on antibiotics but it still scares me.
I had 2 upper teeth pulled 2 weeks ago. I had an infection going on. 1 tooth was broken in half wth a cap on it and the other was to brittle from the root canal it had to repeat another root cancal so they said to pull it. I have one molar in the back left and the area right next to the very front left tooth has whats left of a root canal I guess. In an xray it looks like a post is in my gum but I believe it is the root of my tooth.
