Avatar f tn They want to extract this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> next week and do an imedicate <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>implant</span>. I am very concerend that implanting this area at the same time of extraction with an abcess will cause worse problems. I am a heart patient and concerend. Should I be? The DDS (Oral surgeon) said once the tooth is gone..the infection is gone also., Is this true? I am on Augmentin 875 and this has not touched the pain or infection. Thank You so much for helping me with this.
Avatar n tn The my jaw did not heal correctly, because there were bone fragments and pus were the first tooth was removed, and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>implant</span>. The second <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>implant</span> was pinching into my jaw and they was a notch there, and this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>implant</span> was remove. Now I have a large ulceration above my right eye tooth to my jawline and there is a hard are near my right nostril you can palpate hard area my face. I am noticing clear drainage leaking out of my right nostril, and this area feels different from the left side.
Avatar n tn A bone scan is not the most appropriate study for your symptoms. A CT <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scan</span> and/or MRI is more sensitive depending on the clinical findings.

Avatar n tn No infection (old crown fell off and remaining <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> was very soft), adequate bone. Oral Surgeon did a CT <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scan</span> prior to procedure and put me on post surgical preventative antibiotics and follow up exam everything looks good. I, however, have been having problems with some mild pressure and throbbing sensations in the implant area when I exercise /run. It is not pain but more just pressure and some mild throbbing. The temp.
Avatar f tn Many trips back to the oral surgeon, ct <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scan</span>, multiple pain killers that have not worked, steroid pack, clindamyacin which I had a horrible reaction to, nothing was changing the crippling pain radiating up and down my jaw, chin numbness and excruciating pain unlike anything I have ever felt. (And I have had a lot of surgeries including two sections). Yesterday went back had him put me to sleep and remove the implant and look to see if he could determine what happened.
Avatar m tn I've seen several no good dentist which seem to only want to extract $ from my pocket and do par work in my opinion. I've research this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>implant</span> thing to death and have seen a periodontist who has taken a CT <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scan</span> and says I have good jaw mass and no graphing is needed with anything I do. He knows my history with dentists and has recommended a dentist who he says I should have no reason not to trust and is very god at what he does.
Avatar n tn OK, I'm back at Step 3 but I decided to do the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>implant</span> thing. So the first part was to remove the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> and add a bone graft to replace bone that came out when the tooth was removed. That hurt, and hurt and hurt for almost a month. It was swollen, painful to touch, my face and area under the jaw bone was visibly swollen, headache and earache. I was on more pain killers than ever in my life (I have had babies, back pain and prior surgeries).
Avatar m tn From the x-ray of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>implant</span>, I found that my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>implant</span> is too close to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> #9 and the bone in between my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>implant</span> and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> #9 not grow much to integrate with the implant. I could also see the implant through my front gum, the gray color show off. I deeply worried and began to consult with some oral surgeons and some implant specialist. When they see the x-ray, all their first reaction is: This implant is not good. So, I took a CT scan to see the implant 3-dimension.
Avatar n tn Hey Debbie. Welcome to the forum. This is a rather complex issue. Let's look at a couple things here. One of the better scans for implant placement planning is called "Cone Beam Volumetric Tomograghy scan" (CBVT scan). It is safer and extremely accurate to 0.10mm ( to measure bone thickness or distance from let's say a nerve). It can take images of the maxilla and the mandible at once (without subjecting the client to unnecessary extra radiation).
Avatar m tn They did that as well - that was the same time I went to ENT though, see below, so I started current round of antibiotics and had root canal done at the same time. ENT did a CT <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scan</span> and it showed a small infection in sinuses, so he prescribed new round of very strong antibiotics - doxycycine 2x daily.
Avatar f tn In my films, it was noted that there were inflammatory changes and mucosal thickening to the sinus directly above the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>implant</span>. A traditional CT <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scan</span> which had also been ordered had a report that the sinuses were "unremarkable." So it seems to me a big difference in the info. obtained. Did you start with burning knees and feet after you had dental implant work done?

Avatar m tn I had infected lower <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>implant</span> removed 8months agon. Have numbness hard to eat and talk nerve damage. My quality of life has been damaged,I do not know how much more I can take. I oral sureogn did the work. ...had to take 8 bone spurs out of my jag. Damaging the nerve.
Avatar m tn hello, i had an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>implant</span> done 3 days ago after removal of my front upper <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> UR2, by the 'immediate loading' method. Everything seems to be fine, no pain, no bleeding etc, except for the strange feeling in my implanted tooth and the adjacent tooth UR1. The area feels a bit 'tight' ( i would describe this sensation to be similar to when i floss my teeth and the dental floss stucks between two of them causing a funny feeling of tightness).
Avatar f tn It seems I had forgotten to mention on my first post, that not only was the implant crown on 26 way too tight when he placed it, the dentist then pushed down on it forcefully several times (he told me he was going to try and move and reposition the implant post that another dentist put in 5 years earlier) It seems that this is what set off the chain reaction of teeth movement and /or bone loss and movement/that is happening still to this day.
Avatar f tn The main nerve under the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>implant</span> was not touched as I had a ct <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scan</span> to see its exact location. I remember having slight discomfort in the jaw from novacaine needles in the past which lasted quite awhile. Could this be a combination of causes for my frozen jaw? HELP?
Avatar f tn My basic question is, when trying to detect an osteomyelitis (bone infection) which is the better tool, an MRI or a bone <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scan</span>? Or a cat <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scan</span>? Would a bone <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scan</span> work on the jaw area? But in addition to that question, I have a VERY complicated situation with this infection, so if anyone has any advice, please help - here is the shortest possible version of my whole story... I've had a very serious dental infection for 6 months.
Avatar f tn The black area on the xray was pretty extensive so the periodontist is unsure if the tooth could support a crown after a RCT. Her plan is for me to get a CT <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scan</span> and then she'll bring me in and drill into the tooth to have a look. From there she'll send any tissue for pathology as well as decide whether RCT or extraction is the end result. My biggest fear is when she started talking about how tooth #21 is near a nerve that could cause permanent nerve damage.
Avatar n tn If the symptoms developed after implant placement, it's likely that the mandibular nerve is injured. Taking a panoramic x-ray or ct <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scan</span> to evaluate the proximity of fixture to mandibular nerve is essential. If the fixture penetrates mandibular canal, the fixture may be retrieved.If the position of fixture is optimal , there is no need of retrieving fixture.Pharmacologic management may help restore the normal function of nerve.Seeing a neurologist is advised.
Avatar n tn I ended up with a set of recurring infections that did not consistently respond to medication. Recently, I was referred for a CT <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scan</span> and it has been determined that it is now the maxillary sinus that is the problem. The structures all appear to be okay and the only symptoms I have had are some pain below the eye, fits of sneezing, and some breathing restrictions via the right nostril. The scan shows total opacification and the ENT says the only option is FESS.
Avatar m tn Now I feel a bit odd about mentioning it again. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>implant</span> is $3800. I also had a CT <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scan</span>, $400, of it along with some appointment fees related to it. My insurance will pay less than half the cost of the implant. If I add up all this tooth has cost me over the years I am sure I will faint. It had already had two crowns.
Avatar f tn He said blood tests would be first course of action followed by CT <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scan</span> of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span>. My primary Dr drew blood and I should have results next week. I am healthy person, although have osteopenia, and throughout this procedure I have had three stress fractures on my foot and have been non-weight bearing. These don't seem related, just bad timing, although I am concerned about the potential of issues with tooth removal if it comes to that, with osteopenia and having taken Boniva. (Which Dr.
Avatar n tn MRI, blood test, CT <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scan</span> and etc. all tests have came back negative for any root cause. I have had numerous dental procedures and gum surgery. My tasting problem started when my dentist unscrewed the healing caps for my implants. I had a horrible metallic taste that my dentist told me would go away. Ever since this I have lost my normal ability to taste, and no one can say why. I feel my dentist is afraid to admit there is a correlation for my condition and my dental procedures.
Avatar f tn how do I know if all of the infection has been removed by the removal of infected bone and scraping to clean out the site? Are you saying that a CT <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scan</span> is the appropriate follow-up for this procedure?
359574 tn?1328364024 I might need to do some more research on that one. I get to have my dental <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>implant</span> tomorrow, finally, and I will have a real fake <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> in a few months. So things are relatively peachy.
Avatar n tn Just because endontists say <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scan</span> looks good does not mean they are always right when doesn't show on ct <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scan</span>. Pain went away immediately!! Don't suffer like I had to see a competent periodontist and prosthodontist. If you need someone in New York area respond and I will reply.
Avatar m tn I would think maybe he was surprised neither of my aneurysms had popped. Next step is a ct <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scan</span>, 8/7. He will meet with his team and make a plan. There r now flexible caths and other materials to fill aneurysms. Not sure if some may be not metal and therefore may cause less of the issue you wrote about...metal not being accepted by the body. Also another surprise was my MS doc was looking @ MRI FROM May, 2013 asked me if I knew I have a Meningioma ?? Well, no I do not.
Avatar f tn I just experienced a similar situation. In my case, after having a CT <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scan</span> by an Ear Nose and Throat specialist, I learned that there was a tear in the sinus membrane. The tooth in question had the root canal 6 years ago. It was a root canal gone bad. Not sure why yet. Still investigating.
