Tooth infection for years

Common Questions and Answers about Tooth infection for years


I thought the endodontist did a very poor job). So now I'm on my 2nd day of 500 mg Penicillin QID, and I'm still having pain. I've been taking 600 mg Ibuprofen Q6HR alternating with 1000 mg Acetometophin Q6HR, which helps, but I was wondering: how long should I wait till I possibly suspect the antibiotic is not doing the job on the infection? Also, it was recommended that I have a redo of said root canal, which I agree with, that going to be a very difficult procedure?
So now I am on antibiotics to try and care <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> infection but at same time fighting inflammed thyroid and constant knee pain, I have been seeing doctors for it all for along time its none of it easy. Thanks for the help.
when i was younger my front <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> was broken and replaced with a cap. 7 years later it became infected and i had root canal surgery (is this where they take the nerve out? as this is what happened) over the last two years the gum become swollen and sore and receeds around the tooth. what is happening?
Recently I visited my dentist because I was experiencing extreme pain in my mouth. They told me my upper left wisdom <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> was infected and prescribed me a prescription <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> an antibiotic and ibuprofen to help with the discomfort, as well as referring me to an oral surgeon. I have an appointment in three days with the oral surgeon for an exam (Its been two weeks already) but I have the feeling my tooth is still infected even after taking the antibiotic.
<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> the past couple of years or so, I have encountered not so severe pain on my back tooth, also the one on the other side..Normally I just take painkillers. Last month, the pain on one side became unbearable and I got that tooth removed.. But from the looks of it, the other unremoved one is worse. The other day I experienced unbearable pain on said tooth and I feel like even my neck is swollen.
This tooth had a root filling twice,but that was about three years ago.I had antibiotics over the new year <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> an infection and more antibiotics a few weeks after the first lot .The dentist said the best option is having the tooth extracted,because another root filling would possibly be not very successful.So I had the tooth extracted.There were several little pieces.A day after I was still in a lot of pain and had to take pain killers every three hours.
Yes, you are at higher risk of getting endocarditis than someone who has never had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> infection -- but that is a long way from actually having endocarditis. As long as the infection stayed localized in your jaw, you won't get endocarditis. If you did not have any unexplained fevers, night sweats, or other symptoms of whole-body infection, the chances that you have contracted bacterial endocarditis are low -- especially if you do not already have some other sort of heart valve disease.
Just to add - I am 28 years old and i haven't had any of my wisdom teeth removed.
I went back the next week, as the filling fell out of it, and she said that it was looking better, re-filled the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> and recommended Corsodyl <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a couple of weeks. I followed her advice, and continued with the Corsodyl, and things did seem to improve, but as soon as I stopped using it, the gum started to swell again. I noticed on the bottle that a month's course was recommended for gum disease, so thought that maybe I hadn't used it for long enough to completely knock the infection out.
Hopefully, they do and don't say i'm positive because you kjnow, i wouldn't want to be, but at the same time they can find my problem... i'm 26.. and oh man.. let a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> infection go <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> 3 months with cold sensations with liquid in moth to a lower back molar tooth. from then on i've had various symptoms from breathing problem down to twitching. unbelievable never experienced such symtpoms..
Hi, I need some advise regarding my teeth. I had a root canal done on my tooth 19th maybe about 3 years ago. 2 years ago my gum swelled because of pus & infection therefore the dentist did another root canal to remove the infection. I found out last sep. that there's some infection underneath that same tooth again, but because of some complication with insurance i didn't do anything about it till now. This time there's no swelling or pain or any sort of discomfort.
I didn't think of it for quite some time, although I believe I did have pain at first and I couldn't eat on that side, but I don't know <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> sure. Years later we moved to where we are now, and I finally told my regular doctor about it. He looked at it and didn't think it was an absess because it was so high up in the gums, but he said I should see a dentist about it.
A tooth (should have erupted at about 12 years old) fully embedded & fused with mandible. Didn't cause any problems for years, but has flared up and is extremely painful. Per general dentist, it lays directly under a good tooth, has abscess/cyst at base and infection in mandible. States it needs to be removed per xrays and consult with oral surgeon who agreed but said it will be a major task since the nerves are tangled, jawbone may break etc.
is this why my vertigo isn't going away? Can the infection in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> be causing fluid to build up in my inner ear which is why I have vertigo symptoms? I can't seem to find an answer! Also, is the fluid in my lymph node from my inner ear or from the infection in my tooth???? Help! Next stop ENT if I can't figure this out!
Its hard <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> me to say whether the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> needed to be removed or not. But since it is out, it would be best to finish your antibiotics and monitor the situation. If you follow your post operative instructions carefully, the area should heal normally. Are there any medical problems you may have that may affect your ability to heal or fight off infections?
Colloidal silver, i used this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> years <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> all infections an viruses as well. I also have a huge problem with Antibiotics, they nearly killed me a few times from Anapalaxic shock!! And their all mold and really bad for the body period.. I also ended up with rampart Candida form hell!! And the being put on Diflucan caused even more problems. DO NOT let the 'scare monger's' put you off using Colloidal silver, its amazing stuff.
Or the hygenist from hell, who used that nasty ultrasonic thing, despite my protests, left me in pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> over a week, using salt washes to prevent infection.) More than enough <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> anyone. A dear friend of mine just admitted that he has not been to a dentist for over 25 years, and he's fine. If I can manage it, I am going to follow his example.
had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> pulled and took pain pills <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> 1 week <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> legit pain and another week before I decided I didn't want to go down that road again. Went to Dr for sinus infection and headache and he ask if I wanted pain pill for the headaches and I said no that I like them too much and he was impressed that I was honest, not many people are. He gave me fioriect tabs for the headaches will have to do my research on them now. I've taken a couple and seem to work ok.
HI, The gap after tooth extraction will usually fill up and heal by secondary intention within a few weeks time. If it has not healed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> 12 years then there must be something that is preventing healing to occur. This can be infection and abscess formation. The gross taste may be an indication. Also anaemia, diabetes or other conditions that decrease a person’s immunity may prevent healing. You should take a second opinion regarding the matter from another Doctor. Hope this helps.
WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE CONSEQUENCES OF HAVING A <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> DECAY/INFECTION/ABCESS <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> A NUMBER OF YEARS?
I had a rootcanal on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> #30 about 13 years ago. Two or three years ago #30 cracked. Last year i went to the dentist and he cleaned the decay and put a prefabricated post and covered the tooth with the white filling. over that time i have been experiencing acne on my face and developed cysts under the jaw bone on both sides of my mouth. The dermatologist gave me amoxicilliyn for about 2 years which cleared up the cysts and acne. I stopped taking amoxicil.
This started about 1 week ago. This <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> had a root canal done about 20 years ago. It is also an anchor <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a bridge <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> #29-31. The bridge was replaced about 1 1/2 years ago. I was having problems with the porcelain fall off so my dentist was remaking it using gold. The pain in the gums around this tooth started about 4 weeks ago after the dentist had to pack the cord around the anchor teeth to make impressions for the new bridge.
and I'm 42 years old. Wouldn't it be strange if the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> was in trouble <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> the past 8 years and I had no symptoms? Is it easy to evaluate with an x-ray? My mouth is super-sensitive and I don't want to cause more pain by having a root canal done. Would a dental CAT scan be of any help?
I had that problem a few years back, I begged the dentist to remove an aching <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> but an x-ray revealed a pocket of infection compressing the nerves under the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span>.
After the removal, I had very severe tonsillitis <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> about 4 days. On 3-15-07, I had my right wisdom <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> removed because it had also begun to give me problems (severe pain and a swollen face). When this tooth was removed it had not fully erupted and needed to be cut out. Due to my ongoing infections, my antibiotics were made stronger (from cephalexin to clindamycin).
I had a root canal done about 2 years ago, I recently was hiking and the next day my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> was loose ( the one with the root canal and crown) I also came down with some sort of reipitory virus or similar. I was treated with amoxicilin and then cippro by Regular DR. I had the resipitory symptom for 9 weeks finally atfer 10 day on cippro it seemed to clear up and my tooth felt tighter. IT seemed to clear up for a while maybe 3 or 4 days .
Thanks <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> ur reply. I have had the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> out about 4 hours back. Put some ice pack on the swollen left jaw. The numbness has just worn out And I m feeling the pain now. I have taken the gauge out. Just taken Ibuprofen 400mg with half glass of water. My dentist has called after 4 days for implants I have 3 tooth missing now. Does implant have complication because I hear that some drilling of jaw bone is required for implants. It sounds so frightening. I would appreciate ur opinion.
