Common Questions and Answers about Tooth infection pus

infection

The damage of the gums overlying the teeth can be the site of infection and hence the pus. Do consult a dentist for an examination. Hope this helps.
If the tooth has been fractured by any injury, the dentist may perform a root canal to prevent infection and then treat the loose tooth. Bleeding and swollen gums could be due to bacteria or a lack of a certain vitamin that can lead to swollen gums,gingivitis, scurvy, periodontitis etc. In gingivitis there are swollen gums, bad breath, easily bleeding of the gums during flossing or brushing and gums may appear red-colored.
it looks as though there may be some pus at the gum line. i did not have any infection at the time it was extracted. called dentist, receptionist told me i may have some infection draining but there is nothing they can do. i am rinsing frequently with salt water. will this clear up on its own??
Saw my doctor on Wednesday and he said it sounded like anxiety. Dentist on Thursday, said I had a tooth 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 my brain. My doctor said it's unlikely, so did the dentist. I'm taking an antibiotic and will be getting the infected tooth out next week. Possibly all 4... It's a top molar that's infected.
I had my lower right wisdom tooth extracted 2 weeks ago, and since last night Ive had trouble swollowing and there is pus in the socket. What should I do?
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.
It seemed ok but about 2 months ago a small hole appeared on the gum in front of this teeth which sporadically leaks pus and the tooth feels sore now and then (with varying intesity of pain). My dentist has prescribed 2 courses of amoxicillin now but this has not fixed the problem. Any advice on what I should do now? I don't want to have the tooth out as it is a front bottom one.
Hi, Any bacterial infection can lead to collection of pus in the tooth can cause tooth abscess. A tooth infection should be treated appropriately to prevent spread of infection. The usually preferred antibiotics are amoxicillin, clindamycin, penicillins and metrogyl.Azithromycin may raise serum methadone levels and/or increase the effects of methadone. It is advisable to contact a local health care provider. Do write to us again. Best luck and regards!
The doc said to check with the dentist to see if it was wisdom tooth related so went to dentist they weren't sure and referred me to an oral surgeon who could not be sure that it was but went ahead and removed the left impacted wisdom tooth. Now I have an infection the clinic put me on 300 mg of clindamycin 4 times a day, and I am due to see the surgeon again tomorrow but the swelling and hardness in my jaw and neck is still there.
I would like to change my diet and get healthier in hopes it will help but change is not easy. I'm still leaking a little pus although my breast lump seems smaller and colour of pus changed from orange-ish to yellow-ish and not feeling so much pain now. Can put some pressure on my breast without hurting, accidental, of course. Since pain, I've tried my best not to bang or have anyth touch it. Being sick is not good, not good at all.
You should go back to your dentist to have the area checked. Pus is usually a sign of infection.
Hello, In a dental abscess, or tooth abscess there is accumulation of pus inside the teeth or gums. The abscess usually originates from a bacterial infection and is mostly caused by a dental infection. The common presenting complaints are severe toothache, breath odour, fever, pain when chewing, sensitivity to hot or cold, swelling of gums, swollen glands etc. It can be diagnosed with the help of clinical examination, dental x-rays and other tests. Antibiotics are given for the infection.
Hello, I recommend that you call your doctor's office and ask them if the swelling is normal, because when your upper or lower jaw swells with an abscessed tooth it's indicative of a very serious infection. When you call them you can also ask about the pocket of poison but I am surprised your doctor did not drain it for you to clear out some of the infection.

I have a back molar that broke about 3 months ago ive been trying to save up for root canal but now I think I will need it pulled. The tooth stopped hurting and then I got the pus pocket under it that would flare up but then go down. Now its present and I can tell my gum on that side has some swelling compared to the other side. No bad pain just sore to touch from the outside of my cheek.
You need to go to back to the ER most likely to try to get it taken care of. It sounds like they may need to drain the pus out and put you on a different antibiotic. Eventually you'll need to take care of the bad tooth but at this stage, its important to prevent the infection from spreading further.
It appears that the infection source is dental origin. Seeing a dentist to deliver appropriate dental treatemnt is advised.
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.
I've never had an infection in my mouth before so it's got me really worried. My tooth did stop hurting mostly though since my cheek swelled up, not sure why, is that good? Thanks, and any advice will be appreciated.
How will I know if my tooth infection spread to my brain or other parts of my body??? Scared... I have a sinus infection and eye infection. Are all of these related??? Saw a dentist and doctor recently. I've had all sorts of symptoms for 2 + months. I'm so scared that I hVe a brain abscess. Please help... Thank you...
He had a root canal done about two weeks ago on his lower right hand side tooth - second from the back. There was an infection there and the endodontist cleaned it out. They put him on Amoxycillin and then on a stronger antibiotic - Clymo (sorry don't know the name). Yesterday, they opened it up again and there was pus/infection there. They cleaned it out again, stuffed it with bacterial medicine and that was that. More painkillers and three more days on antibiotics!
This morning my tooth had a little pain,before you knew it ,It became abscessed.Saw Dr. started taking Ampicilin .I have a problem, I am driving to Oragan from Arizona to see my sister.I need to take her to Reno.Would take me about 10 to 11 days,My dentist is there.Should I continue taking ampicilin? Why did the doctor in Arizona not give me penicilin instead? The pain is low taking Naproxen.
On my left upper side, it was excrutiatingly painful, the gum around the tooth was swelling, there was pus/blood, and excess saliva. Never having experienced this before and not having a family dentist I went to the ER where they said, not a Dentist but a regular MD, the tooth was absessed. I was started on Clindamycin and told to take Advil for the pain. This was Sunday, today is Wednesday and I have been taking the anti-biotics regularly every six hours.
