Tooth abscess x ray

Common Questions and Answers about Tooth abscess x ray


Avatar m tn Some antibiotics have analgesic effect. Therefore, if you feel better after taking antibiotics, it does not mean you have infection responsible for your symptoms. If you do have chronic infection in your mouth, clinical and radiographic exam can confirm. If your extensive dental treatment were rendered for left side facial pain and pain was not relieved, you may have a condition known as atypical odontalgia. Seeing an Orofacial pain specialist is advised.
Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar m tn If they were doing that kind of X-ray, it's no different than if they X-rayed your chest where your heart is or X-rayed your leg. Now, if let's say you have a tooth problem right now, and that's how come you had that kind of panoramic X-ray done, THAT'S what is giving you a headache and making you dizzy, you got a tooth infection or cavity that is exposing the nerve. So, you'll probably have to go to the dentist to get a tooth filled or pulled or whatever.
376182 tn?1283277338 It occurs just about every day each episode lasting an average of 15 minutes and then subsiding. When I had the root canal done I had another X-ray done which revealed that the abscess was still there despite a week of antibiotics. Could these pressure sensations be related to the abscess in anyway? Any help would be greatly appreciated...I am at my wits end.
Avatar m tn Hi, I had crown done following the root canal treatment on 14th tooth 3 years ago due to a regular recurring abscess. After the root canal treatment and crown, i used to get abscess at exactly the same location every now and then but that time with no pain. A month ago the abscess recurred again after a long while, so i went to a dentist (a different this time since i have moved places). He suggested that the previous root canal was not done properly and that the crown had to be removed.
Avatar n tn I am worried I have a dental infection spreading from neglected dental work, that was complicated by a mis-diagnosis. Sorry for dragging this on, and on. Does a tooth abscess ever not show up on a X-ray?
Avatar f tn You have a right to all prior records, so find a new dentist, have their office send the x-rays and other documentation over (this will save you the x-ray fee!). Call the doctor and speak with HIM or HER directly and see if they agree with the insanity of the other doc. FIrst off, you should be on a much stronger Antibiotic and secondly, depending on your past experience with pain medications, you need at LEAST Tylenol with Codeine and a topical numbing gel. For now??
Avatar f tn My dentist took an x-ray of my mouth and found no sign of a tooth abscess, even though when she drilled the infected tooth (which had a filling), there was a foul smell, indicating an abscessed tooth. There is also a swelling below my left jaw, and it is difficult to swallow and open my mouth. The dentist didn't explain much regarding why the x-Ray didn't reflect the tooth abscess. When we asked about the swelling in my jaw, she answered (rather uncertainly) maybe, it was because of trauma?
Avatar n tn I am worried I have a dental infection spreading from neglected dental work, that was complicated by a mis-diagnosis. Sorry for dragging this on, and on. Does a tooth abscess ever not show up on a X-ray? Possibly draining out before X-ray is taken? draining into roof of mouth or sinus?
Avatar n tn Here's the x-ray I took today. #3 & #13 are the ones suggested to extract.
Avatar n tn i had an abscess on a tooth that had already had root canal treatment went to the dentist he said i had the abscess after taking an x ray and said the tooth needed to be removed. without asking whether there was anyone to go home wiith me or if the rest of my day was free, he, under just normal injected into the mouth painkiller proceeded to pull the tooth i felt most of it and screamed i had previously asked can i have gas and air or something he said id be "fine" .
Avatar n tn Can I fly to Europe with a tooth abscess that is only visble on X-ray. I have no symptoms or swelling. My dentist says I must have the tooth removed before flying.
Avatar f tn I had a piece of tooth that was left in my gum from when I lost the tooth n didn't know until the dentist showed me on x-ray . he pulled the rest of it out and I knew I would be in some pain due to it, but its been over a week and a half and I am still having pain in the gum area of where it was pulled.. he gave me ibeprofen 8oo mg for the pain but its not working to much.. I still wake up in the middle of the night in pain.. I do the salt water rinse but nothing.. what else can i do?
Avatar n tn I have had an abcess and infection at the tip of a front tooth root for four years. I knew that I had problems and this is what showed up on the x-ray. Two weeks ago I had a root canal treatment on this tooth. It was fine for about 10 days but now feels painful and just the same as it did prior to the treatment. Will it be possible for the dentist to re-do the root canal treatment, and if this does not work are there any other options to try and save the tooth?
4279185 tn?1352125277 Around 18 years ago i needed a root canal done on my upper front tooth, next to the two largest front teeth. Root canal failed and i developed an abscess on gum. Dentist at the time said best to leave it. Several years passed, new dentist decided to redo the root canal and perform an apiectomy. One day after stitches came out the familiar pimple was back. Since then i have lived with this infection, every so often i have to forcibly drain it to reduce the swelling and pain.
Avatar n tn In the last few weeks, I had to have my crown recemented because it fell off. The initial dentist took an x-ray, placed the crown back on, and proceeded to inform me that the bump was a sign of infection under the molar in between the two root areas you typically see on a molar x-ray, though the infection did not show up in an x-ray. Since he wasn't my primary dentist, and was rushing very fast that day, I decided to consult with my primary dentist for a second opinion.
Avatar n tn Horizontal fracture can be detected from x-ray. Initial vertical fracture can not be seen from x-ray. The abscess of tooth #29 may come from fracure, periodontal infectrion, or periapical infection. Cord packing and impression procedure is not likely to cause infection.
Avatar f tn Hi, No he didnt x ray it, just poked around the gum. I think the filling is intact & it doesnt hurt when i eat, i am worried theres a abscess forming. I cant wait til monday morning to go back, im with a private dentist so dreading the cost.
Avatar n tn He has given me this as the only option with out taking an x-ray. Is there more that can be done to save the tooth/crown? Should i get a second opinion?
Avatar f tn My dentist did an oral exam and full set of x-rays along with my jaw x-ray and he said that my upper right wisdom tooth is rotten, (it's black and looks real nasty) and needs to be removed by an oral surgeon. I said no way because it doesn't hurt and I don't even know it's I really need to have it removed? Thanks!
Avatar f tn On the most recent x-rays, I noticed a big shadow above the root that wasn't there before the re-treatment. Is that just the maxillary sinus from a different angle, or am I looking at an abscess? X-ray with shadow: Comparison x-ray from a week earlier: http://imgur.
645390 tn?1338558977 Upper tooth, on the other side where I tend to have all my TN problems. I went to dentist today, tooth looks fine, xray normal, no abscess. He said if it still hurts tomorrow to call the endodontist and let him know. But doesn't know what he can do, because it all looks good. SO, think this could be a cracked tooth, or TN related or what? I am frustrated and sick and tired of pain already. I am ready to just get this tooth pulled to get rid of the pain. Anyone have this? or have had this?
Avatar n tn are your wisdom teeth coming through,when my were coming through the root of the tooth was growing into my ear drum,giving me intense pain,i had an x ray and then had it removed in hospital
Avatar f tn Blood cultures Chest x-ray Complete blood count (CBC) Head CT scan Electroencephalogram (EEG) MRI of head Testing for the presence of antibodies to organisms such as Toxoplasma gondii and Taenia solium A needle biopsy is usually performed to identify the cause of the infection. . Back to TopTreatment A brain abscess is a medical emergency. Pressure inside the skull may become high enough to be life threatening. You will need to stay in the hospital until the condition is stable.
Avatar n tn I went to a dentist and he said it looked like an infection in the gum around the crown, took an x-ray which showed nothing. There were deep pockets due to a previous infection causing a deep area between #14 and the last molar, (which has also got a crown), but no root canal. The dentist said I more than likely have an infection and need a deep cleaning and antibiotics put into the area to heal it. I took the time to read all the issues posted here regarding similar issues.
Avatar m tn The severity of the pain that you're describing suggests an abscess. Visiting a dentist and having an x-ray taken will either confirm or rule it out. You may want to chew on the opposite side but other than that there is not much that you can do in the meantime.
Avatar f tn About 2 years ago my dentist told me I had a large shadow on my dental x Ray (upper jaw). He said he didn't know what it was, but not to worry about it. I have noticed a swelling or thickening in the gums in that area for some time. My dentist monitors my tooth mobility in that area. In the last 2-3 months I developed tenderness in that area and it bled every time I flossed for about a month.
Avatar n tn About 2 years ago I had root canal work on an upper rear molar which seemed to go well. However, I recently developed an abscess in the gum above this tooth and it ended in an extraction at the same dental practice (different dentist this time). On x-ray, this dentist discovered a fragment of 'something' (she didn't go into specifics) which she believed had been left behind in one of the canals during the earlier work.
