Hello, gum disease is caused by a build-up of plaque on the teeth. Plaque forms when you eat and drink and contains bacteria .Untreated plaque will build up and irritate the gums, leading to redness, swelling and soreness. The type of treatment will depend on the extent of the gum disease. Treatment of periodontal disease can be either non-surgical or surgical therapy. See a dentist and get examined. I sincerely hope it helps. Best wishes and regards!
Also, the gums <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>around</span> the one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> with the gap beside it have been <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> and red looking BUT not all the time. Sometimes I forget it's even there. When I brush my teeth sometimes it bleeds around that one tooth. But tonight I was just sitting in bed, and I sort of put my tongue up to the gap between the two teeth and sucked a bit and tasted blood. I don't think I did anything to irritate the area by eating anything hard or anything like that. I'm not really sure what's going on.

in a perfect world a root canal and crown or an implant would be ideal depending on how badly damaged the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> is but these procedures can cost <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>around</span> 1500 to 5000 depending on where you live. you need to see a dentist right now to evaluate your situation and go through your options. if you have a local dental school or low income clinic in your area you might want to check them out. good luck!
We were taking pano on each other and I noticed that I had a radiolucent area <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>around</span> the apex of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> #19. This <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> had root canal done 3 years ago and I got a nice crown on it too. I visited my dentist regurlaly. I had no pain or discomfort prior to the pano that we took on Nov 18. Since then, I visited my dentist and he told me it is an abscess. I started the Amoxicillin on monday, I also noticed that I had a throbbing pain since last sunday.Well...
In the early stages of the decay there were the usualy symptoms, Pus/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gum</span>s/etc. After a while. The symptoms subsided and my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gum</span>s started to develope a hard lump (no pain). After getting the infected tooth extracted and taking antibiotics. The hard lump decreased drastically (but never completely went away). Now a month after the extraction. One day I was pushing on (whats left of the lump) and playing with it.

Hi there, An impacted wisdom tooth can give rise to pain or tenderness of gums, jaw ache, redness and swelling of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gum</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>around</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> lymph nodes and difficulty opening the mouth. The symptoms you have been having could possibly be due to any bacterial or viral illness.Tonsillitis, flu; otitis media all can give rise to these symptoms.

return to the dentist. you may need a different antibiotic and may need to have the root canal recleaned. the swelling you describe is not normal and no amount of swishing or hanging upside down will help.
I suggest that you go to the dentist to check it out and more than likely he/she will also want to extract the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span>. Most people like myself once the wisdom teeth start breaking through the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gum</span>s we get them extratced because they cause nothing but problems and get pulled out anyway. So please see the dentist because if you have an infection and it is not taken care of properly you can cause alot of probelms and especially with your sinuses.
I used a mirror to see what it looks like and to my suprise it is white istead of red. The swelling is spreading to my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gum</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>around</span> my right front <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span>. I'm trying not to touch it and irritate it further, but it has gotten so swollen that my bottom teeth hit it when I close my mouth. This has become a common occurance over the years but I don't remember it hurting this badly before. I do grind my teeth at night and occasionally wear a mouth guard when I sleep but haven't worn it for a while.
He said the crown looked fine but the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gum</span>s however, were <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span>. He put me on a medicated oral rinse and told me to check with him in two weeks. This may seem weird but one thing I had not noticed until I got home today is that the tooth hurts when it is tapped on or near the sides BUT if I place my thumb under the bottom of that tooth to apply pressure and THEN tap, there is NOT ANY pain at all. my question is could it be an ill fitting crown that is the culprit here?
I had an abscessed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> removed after being on antibiotics for one week, my jaw was a bit swollen before he removed the tooth the swelling had not gone down with the antibiotics. 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.
my guess is the root canal was not done right or im very senesitive to the crown or that cement they put in there. gums are still soar on one side the crown. is this nornal for temp crowns?
Inside my mouth is another knot (all white) the size of a large pencil eraser and the lower <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gum</span>s are all <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span>. Called dentist (he's gone) his partner put me on another anti-biotic Clindamycin 150 mg. my third dose is tonight and so far - no changes at all. I can't eat or sleep as the pain in unreal. Can anyone give me any advice - I fear a long weekend. And thank you!!
Update, I am still tinkering <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>around</span> with Heme in the 10.5, it rallied for a couple weeks 10.7 then a wopping 11. 15 week PCR is 5000, at 12 weeks I was 19000. Insurance company okayed another 8 months of tx. I see the Dr. on Tuesday we are going to talk about adding a drug to work on the NASH. I am not working now and hope to level off soon. I miss my job.. Spent last week chasing around for an oral surgeon. Started on Amoxioillin, it didn't touch the swelling.
I was eating strawberries the other day and I believe that a small seed got stuck in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gum</span>s behind my right wisdom <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> on the bottom. This has happened before with popcorn, but the offending particles easily came out and the swelling went down. Now, whatever is stuck there is pretty well stuck. my gum is swollen pretty badly and it's starting to get pretty painful.
That is actually what I always wanted-- to experience NO Pain anymore. We are also the same that we have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> gum <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>around</span> the back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span>. I am really suffering now. I wanted to ease the pain but I dont know how. Many people are trying to make me avoid tooth extraction..
Since I posted my toot abscess has spread i think- there are little white pimple dots leaking pus now on the other side of my mouth (top gum). Also, my top <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gum</span>s are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> (feel like a donkey), my lymph nodes are throbbing, my throat is super raw, and I feel an intense pressure in my cheek bones on both sides of my face (almost feels like pusing up to my eyes). I am so scared. I stopped taking the antibiotics and then this happened a day later so I have doubled up the antibiotics.
The pain when pressure is applied is reminiscent to shifting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> pain (from braces) that I experienced years ago. I also have minor <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> pain on all of my upper left teeth. Taking a Motrin relieved the pain last evening, but this morning, the swelling was slightly worse. I've had a cold for a while, accompanied by a cough and sore throat.
I called her the next morning, came in, and she looked at it, prescribed me an antibiotic and a medical mouth wash. The gum are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span>, but since there is no pain in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span>, she thinks it's just swollen from the prepping of the teeth (and I guess the antibiotic is a precaution), I had a tooth extracted in that area about 2 1/2 weeks ago, and it had heeled fine. Yesterday, my lymph nod also hurt briefly but that's gone today.Now its a day later and it looks and feels about the same.
I woke up yesterday, Sunday, with my cheek <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> (sinus area right between my nose and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> #3's root) as well as throbbing pain from the gums around the temp crown. I am extremely worried and confused as to why I am swollen three days after the retreatment without any initial pain or swelling from the retreatment. I do not understand why the crown caused so much pain when it was replaced as a temporary crown and followed with the throbbing pain in my gums.
I have had a swollen submandibular gland, as i was told by my doctor, and i can feel 3 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> lymph nodes in my neck, one of which i can see. I saw my doctor about this about 3 times now and hes told me not to worry and i dont want to keep bothering him about it. I had my 2 bottom wisdom teeth removed and was told by the dentist that there was a flap of skin covering the left one that had become infected (this was before i saw my doctor for the prescription drugs).
It just felt like something wasn't right. Jan 25 - See dentist. Having problems <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>around</span> #19 (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gum</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span>). They give me some peridontal rinse Feb 22- See dentist about problem around #19. There is a place on the inside of bridge that feels like a hole or crack at the gumline.) They remove the bridge and fit me with a temp one until the permanant bridge comes in.
I've had this for a week now where the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gum</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>around</span> my wisdom <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span>. so far, it doesnt hurt that much. i went to the dentist and he prescribe me some antibiotics such as amoxicillin and ibuprofen and help with the infection and pain. i've been taking it for 4 days now and the infection is still there. the ibuprofen does help with the pain. yesterday, my throat started to hurt pretty badly and i was scared that this meant the infection was spreading. but the pain come and goes.
