Abscess gum cure

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess gum cure

abscess

Avatar f tn This only numbs the pain slightly and wears off quite quickly. Ive also got a swollen left side of my face and a lump on my gum. I know I need to see a dentist and probably get antibiotics but the problem is its christmas day and I wont be able to seek help for several days - possibly a week or more and I cant cope with this pain. Any advice on what I can do at home in the meantime to make it bearable?
Avatar n tn It may be an abscess of some sort. Antibiotics would help with the infection if it is an abscess but it won't cure it.
Avatar n tn My tooth that has the abcsess is broken down to the gum, if that could be why. What would i need to get done to fix this and does anyone know about the price it would cost with no insurence? Also do dentists office's set up payment plans?
Avatar m tn Hi.I am aware that my wisdom tooth is being retained in the gum after I took an X ray, but after months, that area of my gum smells very bad whenever I push it with my finger or by chewing food on it. It also smells in the gap between the gum and the next tooth. I hate this and wanted to know if anyone has any suggestions to reduce this smell.
Avatar f tn After only a day of using these the smell has gone! So there is a cure out there...its just finding the right one..now i dont know if its the cream that works or the tablets or both together but im just glad its gone. I have to finish the course tho. I was told that the smell was caused by bacteria that lives in the nose which had got infected. Hope this helps. This discussion is related to bad odor smell from nose (continued).
4328950 tn?1352876936 Hello, There are many causes of bad odour from the mouth like gum disease, halitosis, tooth decay, abscess etc. Poorly fitting dental appliances, yeast infections of the mouth, and dental caries are few other common causes. Respiratory tract infections such as pneumonia or bronchitis, chronic sinus infections, postnasal drip, diabetes, acid reflux and liver or kidney problems are few other causes of bad breath.
Avatar n tn I am wondering if the antibiotics are a way to increase the amount of time you have to wait more than a cure. I have a bump/abscess at the top of the gum right now and actually had the entire procedure. I have relatively low pain but it just started and I know if gets worse. I hope I don't lose my tooth completely. Let me know how this works. I feel like I am driving myself mad researching what is going on.
Avatar n tn I was told to rinse with warm water and salt and to massage the gum. I was also told that it would take about a week to heal. After a week my gums were still swollen and painful.... I then called my dentist and he said that it was normal and sometimes it takes more than a week to heal and not to worry. Well, it is now two weeks after the procedure. Some days it looks like it's healing and other days it's swollen to the touch. The tooth that was originally acessed looks worse.
Avatar f tn I never thought tooth because my tooth did not hurt as well as no swelling of the gum line. I woke up this morning and wow if I thought yesterday was bad today it looked as if I swollowed a baseball. It's got more upward towards my cheek and down where it feels like my tonsil is swollen. It feels like a hard oval knot under the skin along my jaw line. I went to my PCP who said it was an abscess. He gave me an antibiotic shot and told me to follow up with a dentist.

Avatar n tn After a while I figured out that the source of the bad breath was the gum area right above the crown. If I rub my finger in the gum area just above the crown, it smells really bad. I can even smell it in the floss after I have flossed the crown tooth. My dentist did the ususl once-every 6 months cleaning but the smell persists. He took an X-Ray and he ruled out any tooth decay and he says that the gums look fine. He sent me to a gum specialist and she too didnt find anything.
Avatar n tn There was an awful smell which he said was the abscess. I am taking amoxcillin at the moment and it now 8 days since the extraction but my jaw is still swollen the same as it was before the extraction, is this normal should the swelling be going down by now, it is not really painful. I have two days of tablets left should I go back to the dentist if it is still swollen when I have finished my tablets. Also I'm going on holiday is it OK to fly if jaw still swollen.
Avatar n tn Unless a person changes their diet, getting rid of all the decay producing sweets, they will continue going through the dentist process; cavities, fillings, more fillings, splitting teeth, root canals, infections, gum disease, root scaling, extractions, bridges, implants and all the rest until dentures. And thats not the end... dental procedures cause aging trauma. A pulled tooth can result in numb toes, an overdose of anesthesia can last for two weeks and cause stomach problems.
Avatar f tn i thank you and i cant go back to him feeling the way i do,if there is no cure,i just rather not go see him anymore or his staff!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Avatar m tn I was then advised to visit the GUM clinic on 25th Nov'10. Experts there took some sample slabs from the infected area to view under microscope and also took some blood to do HIV, Herpes and syphilis tests. They confirmed it was a very bad fungal and bacterial infection. They prescribed me Zithromax, Fluconazole and Aciclovir just in case it was Herpes and also Daktarin and Hydrocortisone to be applied twice a day.

Avatar f tn Your old hygienist might be right on that holding your mouth open during cleaning knocked your jaw out of whack. Try using warm compresses on your jaw. Gently chewing gum can help also. It does sound like you may be clenching at night. That can make the angle of the jaw ache along with the teeth. I do know that I myself will only let my hygienist clean my teeth. The dentist is just too rough (I let him clean my DH's - LOL) and I ache for two weeks after.

612551 tn?1450025775 We do not feed him anything besides the dry kibble, with a splash of hot water, he is missing several teeth, include a major one we had removed due to an abscess. The vet wants to limit his diet to test for food allergies. I suppose a wet food with potato and fish would not break the test. Natural Balance claims it is a complete diet and Wilson has if anything a weight problem (too much weight) and a beautiful coat and energy - albeit he can sleep for hours and hours...
Avatar f tn I have to have sugar free lozenges, sugar free gum, and Therabreath mints, ice water, ice cubes and cold ice cream help. Then during all this the dentist found that I had an abscess under my crown. So I had to see an Endodontist to do a root canal through a crown which cost over a thousand dollars. I still have the constant saliva bubbles. Anyone, Dr. or other person, have any ideas for help with this terrible.situation? Remember it's been 6 mos.
Avatar f tn I did my research online this seems to be a gum infection and/or abscess of the tooth and very painful for the cat. I've never grabbed this cat, nor will it let me take it somewhere, it moves tries to escape doesn't like to be grabbed. Please tell me if there is something i could take, any antibiotic or pain killer or anti inflammation, anything. Unfortunately i have not much knowledge of medicine.
Avatar m tn Alright well, I think I know what’s troubling you and I know where you can find a cure. I suffered from the same symptoms for five years before I found someone who could help me. You have what my doctor calls cyclic smell distortions. People with this condition smell unpleasant odors that seem to switch on and switch off throughout the day. These bad odors might smell rotten or burned and they tend to occur only in one nostril.
Avatar m tn The Flip-Turn Sinus Flush (by friggy) removes infected mucus from every part of your sinuses, which Mayo Clinic research shows is the cure for sinusitis, rather than treating sinus tissue with antibiotics. Regular saline irrigation does not work in the upper sinuses, because of gravity, but the Sinus Flush defeats gravity. It is effective with bacterial and viral infections, and some but not all fungal infections. The Flip-Turn is the original, and still the best Sinus Flush. WARNING!
1323357 tn?1274826939 Sure, you can use nicotine patches, gum etc but the bottom line is about having the will power to get past it. But you can certainly help your will power out by distracting yourself from the craving, by ignoring and trying to forget the habit. For example, a very common tip for smokers is, keep your hands busy. If you play an instrument, go practice it. If you like to knit, go knit. Go look at some interesting websites for a while. The exact same idea works with DP.
Avatar n tn I came across this post looking for a cure, but it doesn't sound like there is one. Hopefully this suggestion will help others.
Avatar n tn Must be the antibiotic shot weakened the abscess membrane and it drained. I have no idea what I did to have this abscess happen. So, right now I am almost half way through my antibiotics and trying to keep from having a yeast infection. It's still red in my clitoris area and I can't do much except rest and take it easy. I have a doctor's appt. next week but I am just so upset about this. I NEVER want to experience something like this again. I'm afraid it will come back.
Avatar n tn It may not be a cure but it will slow down the re-ocurrance of these lesions. Try drinking green tea 2 times daily for atleast 1 month. Also, get vitamins A,B,C... make sure when you purchase Vitamin A that it is from fish liver oil... and only fish liver oil... Anything else may cause a reaction with the infection. these will detox your system and make your immune system become more efficient. If anything the antibiotics are not reacting anymore cause the virus has learned to cope with them...
Avatar n tn boils are often caused by infected hair folicals. Bacteria from infection form an abscess or pocket of pus. The abscess can become larger than a ping pong ball. Boils occur in areas where there is hair chafting. the face, neck, armpit, breast, groin, and buttocks are common sites.....then it goes on to treatment with cloth. doesn't mention any serious outcomes like surgery.
