infection

I have a infection I believe in my upper right front tooth, in the gum, I can feel it even when I touch under my nose its not painful, but its queshy, and when it drained a little it was blood and yellow drainage!! What could this be I'm taking amoxicillian for it.
my sister has a bad tooth infection and she is on heart medication. she can't see a dentist until tomorrow. her face is swelling up.
i would not have the tooth restored until there is no evidene of infection whatsoever. see your dentist or n endodontist about the drainage.
I had recently got my tooth pulled due to a cracked tooth and really bad infection that gave me a cheek the size of a chipmunk holding 20 nuts. The pain is now gon but the swelling is still there. I thought that since he drained the cheek, just to reach the tooth, the swelling would be gone. Will my cheek eventually go back to normal?
This can cause a Foul-smelling or tasting postnasal drip based on the severity of infection. Stasis and infection of the sinus cavities, and the resultant drainage into the nose and throat causes the bad smell and taste. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Two weeks ago I had a severe toothache went to dentist and put on an antibiotic one week later wisdom tooth extracted pain still persists, drainage, foul taste and smell, upset stomach, pain in jaw and ear and sore throat. Spoke to the dentist and was instructed to continue antibiotic and salt water rinses. I finished the antibiotic and all symptoms still present is this normal and should I be doing something else. I am nervous that I should be taking more antibiotics or doing something else.
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.
Throat doctor (is it a sinus issue?) OR should I go to a dentist (is it a tooth infection issue). I am tired of having the maxillary sinus get stopped up and blocked....tired of the awkward 'sensitive extra tissue' that randomly drains in my upper interior lip.....(and I promise you can not see it looking at me, it's not some major abnormal growth or anything that is visible).

If it persists, it is best that you have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation and to rule out tooth infection or abscess. Take care and do keep us posted.
It could have been aggravated by a dental infection . Since sometimes the roots of teeth are very close or inside the sinus , periapical infection of the tooth may cause pus formation in the sinus . If the pus doesn’t come out through the tooth canals , it is likely that discharge will be through the nose . Please consult your dentist and ENT surgeon for examination and diagnosis. Hope this helps you . Take care and regards !
This was done about 2.5 hours ago. I thought the drainage would make the swelling go down instantaneously. Anyway the prescribed me a stronger antibiotic and painkillers, but I just wanted to make sure because I've been in serious cheek pain for like 4 days. What gives?
Several months ago my dentist discovered an infection above my left front tooth upon which I had a root canal over 20 yrs ago. It was recommended I get an "apicoectomy?" to clean out the source of the infection. They prescribed antibiotic which eliminated the symptoms, but I haven't had proceedure yet. After reading these posts, I suppose there's a connection but no-one's mentioned dental/oral related problems. I'm going to see a Doctor and will post the findings.
infection doesn't normally cause fevers. Have you had your teeth looked at? Sometimes tooth problems ( impacted, infection,abscess, grinding ) can cause these symptoms. The things that work for me are: sinus rinses...you can buy them in every pharmacy. Claritin allergy spray...but can only be used for three days. Try hot/cold packs...alternate them.
I have a root canal scheduled for a month from now, since the infection apparently needs to lessen before they can fix the tooth. Any suggestions on how to make the pain stop? or at least be more bearable? Should I get a second opinion?
Antibiotics are rarely effective for tooth root abscess's because the infection is trapped beneath the tooth and there is no ready access for drainage, unless a hole is surgically placed to allow drainage. Sometimes the abscess is so severe that it creates it's own hole by bursting through the skin of the face to facilitate the bodies ability to remove the infection. Your vet is probably correct in wanting to extract the tooth.
I thought maybe this was from an infection in my top Root canal tooth, but I saw 3 specialists on teeth, and even a week after they did the root canal, I went back and they said it wasn't the tooth...Why could this be?? I do have a lot of phglem and it seems like every 10-15 minutes I'm coughing it up. The last time I had this was in January(was told i had ear infection) and it seemed to go away in a week to 10 days....
However, if you start to develop pain in your mouth or jaw, fever, chills, bad taste in your mouth or drainage from where the tooth was extracted, then you need to see your dentist/doctor again. Good luck.
I was wondering whether this could be a sinus issue or a tooth issue. As I said, the sensation has been there for 4 days and no other tooth symptoms appear. On the other hand, I've had stuffed nose on this side and sinus drainage from my nose to throat, which makes me think this might be a sinus. I've also had slight headaches from sinuses. Why does it reflect on this one crowned tooth? I have no other crowned teeth and my other teeth are all healthy.
After, you should feel no pain, and the only discomfort you might feel would be from the healing bone where the body is still fighting the infection outside the tooth. If your tooth is mostly intact, there is no reason the dentist would need to remove it. How did you chip your tooth? How much of the tooth was chipped off?
I went to have them removed due to them being broken and an infection in one of them. After the removal I notice drainage from where the infected tooth was. When i went back for my follow up the dentist said I had to just let it do its thing. Well 4 weeks later I went to my doctor who had put me on ciprofloxacin 500mg to get rid of the infection. I have one more day of this medicine and the infection is not completely gone.
I am the reason it ruptured because I was pressing down on it and I worry that I may have pushed some of the infection to the brain. I know I swallowed some of the drainage. I have tried to explain this to a doctor here but I can't seem to get him to understand my concerns.
You need urgent drainage of the pus from the abscess and, if necessary your doctor may need to remove any teeth that have been damaged by the infection. If left untreated the infection can cause osteomyelitis and sepsis. Schedule an appointment soon. I hope it helps. Best luck and regards!
I now have a huge hole in my mouth where a large drain was inserted to get rid of the infection -- all the way from my jaw to my cheek. The infection from your tooth has spread to various tissues throughout your mouth and face, and if left untreated, will spread to your brain or your neck. In either case, you will become very, very sick, Never ignore dental pain. It can kill you.
HI, It is indeed unfortunate that extraction of wisdom tooth should get infected like this. Drainage of the pus will help clear away the infection faster. Once the pus is drains the antibiotics will act faster and the healing will be better. Antiseptic mouth washes will help. Also check out with your dentist to know where the pus is coming from. Hope this helps. Take care and good luck.
I have a tooth abscess on a tooth that is badly chipped/broken and has a major cavity. It's sort of like 1/4 of the tooth is gone and you can feel the gum in that spot. I saw my dentist 4 days ago and was given pencillin, and ibuprofen and vicodin for pain to rid the infection to have it treated. They are closed on weekends, so I haven't tried to call but am not sure if I should seek out some urgent care.
I had a root-canal done on my number 3 tooth about 5-7 years ago. Last Saturday night July 26th I started having some pain where my crown (tooth 3) is by Sunday afternoon I started having a lot of pain. On Monday I went to my dentist where they took an xray and said they did not see anything with the root-canal, but that the crown was a little higher than the other teeth so they ground it down to fit bitter.
