Wisdom tooth lump

Common Questions and Answers about Wisdom tooth lump


At the early stages of the sore throat i had no pain in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wisdom</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span>, however on day 2-3 my lower right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wisdom</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> became very painful and kind of inflamed. At this time I also had a pain under my jawline ( the side of the painful wisdom tooth only) - is this the lymph node? If the sore throat is down to an infected wisdom tooth - would it be contagious, say if I kissed my girlfriend??? She has no symptoms of a sore throat so i'm guessing no???? Thanks for any replies.
Recently I visited my dentist because I was experiencing extreme pain in my mouth. They told me my upper left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wisdom</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> was infected and prescribed me a prescription for 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.
I took the inflammation medicine and the antibiotic and the pain is increasing and the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> is getting bigger. I must mention also that the site where the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wisdom</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> was located doesn't hurt hardly at all. I am a smoker of 9yrs. and I don't know if that has anything to do with all of this. I didn't smoke for 48 hours after extraction though. Any suggestions or advice would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance.
After looking at the area in a mirror I noticed that there was swelling of the inside of the cheek along the tooth line and a white fleshy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> hanging off the back of the jaw over the lower <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wisdom</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span>. Every time I chew I have to be careful in order to prevent biting down on the skin. It is not very large and it is painful.
This past month I have had this swollen lump on my lower right gums where my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wisdom</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> should be. (The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> hasn't broken through) The swelling has gotten to the point to where it is causing me to not be able to put my teeth together without putting pressure on the swollen gums and causes pain. Is there something wrong? Or is this normal for wisdom teeth trying to come in?
Hi I went to see a dentist because I found a tiny lump on jaw line which can sorta move and be painful if I press it,he said because I have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wisdom</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> coming its a lymph node.its not growin and its been about 4 months but I'm starting to be be abit sceptical of his diagnosis any advise?
Is it possible that you have an infection starting in a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> on that side? Possibly a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wisdom</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span>? Or, an ear or sinus infection? If it's a tooth, you need to see your dentist. If not, you should probably get to see you PCP. A lymph node should not be swollen. Hope this helps.
I have a hard knot/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> on my lower right jaw bone behind my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wisdom</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> which is still there. I noticed it yesterday and it makes it hard to close my mouth or eat on that side and it's painful. I just wanted to know if anyone might know what it could be. I have jaw pain from time to time which makes my wisdom tooth ache because I have TMJ, so my doctor told me last year. If anyone has any ideas let me know.
Hi, I am 29 years old and 72 hours ago had my lower right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wisdom</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> removed. I went in because I was in a lot of pain and I could have sworn I had already had all wisdom teeth removed in 2004. The dentist took an Xray and immediately removed the tooth. He said my root was abnormally long and the roots were fused together. I started my antibiotics (he said I didn't yet have an infection) and Vicodin immediately.
Most people get them taken out as soon as they start coming in. I had mine taken out as they were coming in. Chances are that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> is from the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wisdom</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> and if not treated can cause alot of problems and wisdom oh yeah they will cause serious sinus probelms.
I started having trouble with my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wisdom</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> 4 years before. I had a small <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> then and the doctor prescribed antibiotics. The pain vanished but I think the problem is still there. I recently could feel the sharp edge of my upper wisdom tooth on my fingers, when I tried to touch the tooth through the side of my mouth. I can't see it myself. I have a slight pain when I touch the tooth. I think Iam having an infection. I have two small babies. I am breastfeeding my 6-month-old.
I have an impacted <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wisdom</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span>. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> does not hurt at all. It use to but the pain all of a sudden just stopped about a year ago. Also the tooth is rotting away. It is not swollen and I am not in pain. I have been feel sick and have a lymph in my neck and one deep in the collar that I THINK is swollen. Also my tonsils are red. (both of them.) I am not throwing up or anything I just feel very bad. Every time i eat the tooth will get food stuck inside.
im 16 years of age and i have a wisdom tooth on my right side of my mouth, i have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> in my throat which is a swollen lymph gland and its on the same side as my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wisdom</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span>, i also keep getting jaw ache and its causing me to have a really sore throat bad enough that i cant be bothered eating because it hurts so much, what should i do?
I just had all 4 of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wisdom</span> teeth out a week ago and im experiencing a few problems which i dont know if they are normal or not. First, I have a painful, hard lump on my jaw. Second, i have an opening in my gums in one area where my tooth was removed and it opens like a deep cut. Third, my teeth don't sit like they used to which is really uncomfortable and one tooth hurts when i eat because it feels like it doesnt fit properly with the tooth above it.
Hi im 17 and to start of im a hypochondriac big time so this just may be me xD So all my wisdom teeth have pretty much come in fine the dentist has never told me they were coming in wrong...But as of Saturday a well <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> or bump in my gum near my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wisdom</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> and second molar has came up!
i still have 2 upper wisdom teeth that hasnt been removed, however, behind my right upper <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wisdom</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> there seems to be a bony long <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> within my gums, it seems to attached to my skull, and i dont have any idea what it was, my other side does not have the same knot/lump
Your description appears to be related to infection. Seeing an oral surgeon to investigate the source of infection is advised.
I am 20 yrs old.. I can feel a small <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> below my left jaw close to my neck [since the last 3/4 months]. It is not painfull and I think it is immovable.. I can feel a smaller one in right to.. but it is too smaller when compared to the left one.. I used to have frequent head aches on my left side.. Now I have a slight pain all over the left side of my head.. and can feel a slight swelling.. Few months ago i had a pain on the lower right abdomen. Even now i can feel the pain when i sneeze.
In May/June of this past year, I developed a lump on my jaw bone. Thinking that it was a problem with a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> (maybe an impacted <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wisdom</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span>?) I went to the dentist. At this point the lump was maybe not quite the size of a pea. I went to the dentist and they had no same-day appointments, and that if I was worried about the lump that I should go to the ER.
I made an emergency appt at a local dentist and it was about 2-3 weeks ago that they removed my upper (impacted) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wisdom</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> along with the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> in front because it had pushed so hard that it fractured the tooth and caused decay. I know--ick. The procedure would have been done much sooner had someone been willing to work with me monetary wise. Anyhow, the extraction took about 10 mins tops. I was given 4 shots of novocaine and then sutured afterward.
I seem to have a sort of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>lump</span> growing behinde my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wisdom</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span>, At first it didnt hurt but was just a bit annoying, but now (a day and a half later) its made my jaw stiff and moving my tougne is kinda difficult. My mother thinks its just a blister but im not too sure.
I have a little lump on my upper left gum behind my molar but further back than I imagine my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wisdom</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> would be. It is painless and I am unable to move it with my tongue but if if push it with my finger it moves slightly with a little click. I have made an appointment to see the dentist but was worried so thought I'd ask your advise. You can not see the lump just feel it.
It sounds like you may have an infection, it could be due to a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wisdom</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> or a bad <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span>. It may possibly be an abscess, you need to go to the emergency room you may need antibiotics. Left untreated you could have worse issues.
The 2nd <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> from the back of my mouth which had a (failed) root canal now has a abscess. Needless to say, I was a bit shocked, since I didn't have any pain, or anything like that, just a lump that came and went away and came ... Well, since the doc said the tooth couldn't be saved anymore, he suggested a three unit bridge. This means that the two other teeth that are still fine would be given crowns, and it would cost around $5K when everything is done.
