Tooth infection face swollen

Common Questions and Answers about Tooth infection face swollen


Avatar f tn Hello and hope you are doing well. I certainly think seeing an ENT is a good idea. Infected an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toothan> roots from the upper teeth can go inside the maxillary sinus and cause sinusitis. The swelling could an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean> due to this infection or due to the lymph nodes. He might need a CT of the sinuses for more information. However, if he does have an infected an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toothan>, he will still need to have this addressed as dental infections can an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean> potentially life-threatening. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

Avatar m tn I was thinking that it was about an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> sinus the after a day i felt not so well. I had a fever and then i started to notice that swollen part of an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> face and the i thought something about an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toothan> that its just a pus. So i took AMOX for like 3 days now and an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> face is getting small now and then i noticed that theres a bump inside, under an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> nose part. Im quite a bit worried about it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean>cause its kind of a bit painful when i touch it. can anyone tell me what this could an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean>?

Avatar n tn Im concerned that i may have an infection where an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> was removed on the right side. I just need an honest opinon about it.
Avatar f tn You will need a root canal if the <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> is restorable or an extraction. Don't put off seeing a dentist for too long. The infection from your an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toothan> can enter your blood stream and adversely effect other parts of your body.
Avatar f tn Hey toman style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan>girl834. Welcome to the forum. Is the right side of your face swollen? any other symptoms perhaps, like pain or tingling? A an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toothan> abscess or other dental issue may cause it. (Dentist) If not, check for common food allergies. They can affect either side. I used to react to eggplant in the past, and it always affected an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> right side. Keep an eye out for peanuts and other nuts, shellfish, wheat,eggs,dairy,soy, as they are more common than other foods.
1211396 tn?1266113119 the whole right side of an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> face is still kinda swollen but not as bad. yet i still have the infection. the bubble is diffrent as it seems an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean>cause its likes its not wanting to pop. i sterized a needle and tried popping it. till i realized the needle an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wouldan> not go through the abcess(bump). thats when its started an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hurtan>ing from irritation. so basicaly i am now sitting here about 4-5 days later. i am taking cylhmidicilin or however its spelled.

However I have an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean>en having some numbness/tightness on face on the same side. Is this an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean>cause of the abcess/infection. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> surgeon said yes to the gland area but the numbness doesn't have anything to do with it. Does anyone else have any input that might help me. This is an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toothan> 31. Will this cause numbness/tingling feeling on an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> right side of an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> face. Thank you for any input.

She has an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean>en aiding herself using remedies such as garlic for cleansing, I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean>lieve, and to potentially get rid of it, hopefully.

Avatar n tn I noticed an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> dogs face near her an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cheekan> is swollen and her neck on the same side is also swollen, its soft in her neck not hard. It wasnt a gradual growth i just notices it last night. Shes acting completly normal shell let me touch it. She does have bad teeth but an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> vet has never an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean>en able to check her mouth for as long as ive had her. I adopted her and she not very nice with other people (we have to muzzle her and sedate her prior to going to the vet). any ideas of what could an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean> causing this?
Avatar m tn Parents finally took me to the dentist. Did some tests determined had some sort of infection in the <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>>. They did a root canal and the guy cleaned out the inside of the an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toothan> the an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean>st he could with antibiotics they said. After that they gave me some more antibiotics to take for about a week or a little more after. Majority of swelling went down. Even after all that and now years later I'm trying to figure out if I still have swelling in an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> right side from this infection.
Avatar f tn Saw an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> doctor on Wednesday and he said it sounded like anxiety. Dentist on Thursday, said I had a <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> 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 an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> brain. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> doctor said it's unlikely, so did the dentist. I'm taking an antibiotic and will an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean> getting the infected an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toothan> out next week. Possibly all 4... It's a top molar that's infected.

Avatar n tn after years of complaining about infection in an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> upper jaw and many <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> extractions later I still have problems. After the last an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toothan> was extracted I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean>came sicker than I felt an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean>fore. The small pieces of pus that I had occaisionally experienced was now coming almost weekly from the back of an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> throat. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> whole face feels swollen as well as an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> neck and an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean>tween an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> shoulder blades.

Avatar m tn But, by Sunday night when she arrived at school, her face had swollen up and she was having puss drain from her gum. She called her oral surgeon this morning. He prescrian style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean>d penicillin (the same antibiotic she was given for the an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toothan> extraction). He also wanted her to go to an oral surgeon out by her college so that he could have it flushed out. She doesn't want to go an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean>cause the surgeon is an hour away. Do you think that the penicillin alone can take care of this infection?
Avatar n tn an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> nasal/ear passages have an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean>en swollen lately as well.

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 an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> sinuses so far (waiting for insurance to ok a CAT scan).After antibiotics I found that there was still pain in an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> upper molars.

480448 tn?1426952138 an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> male kitty, Caesar presented this morning with the left side of his face (mostly his neck) all swollen. He's acting odd too, kind of lethargic, not active and playful like he normally is. He lets me touch the area, and doesn't appear to an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean> in any obvious pain. He didn't come at feeding time, so I gave him canned food instead of the dry, which he did eat (slowly and gingerly). Refused the dry food all together, when normally, he's a ravenous eater. He's using the litter box normally.

Avatar n tn I know that if you use antibiotic too much your body can build up a resistance to them and not work properly. She does not have health insurance and right now her face is severly swollen. she has said everytime she goes to the hospital (3x) all they do is give her antibiotics and send her home. She really need some help. Does anyone know of a place that will take someone without dental insurance in Lake County, IL.
