Abscess gum side effects

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess gum side effects


Avatar n tn I've had an abscess on my gum area that started in my tooth for about a week. I've been on antibiotics (clindamycin 150 MG) for 5 days with painkillers. I've been swollen the entire time and have knot on my jaw. The dentist wont lance it because it hasn't come to a head yet. So, do I go to urgent care, or wait it out to see if it will ever come to a head? Thanks!
Avatar m tn He's also extremely hungry and thirsty. I've read that all of these are possible phenobarbital side effects. How long do these usually last before the dog gets used to the medication? I'm hoping that these are not signs that something else is wrong, though I am aware of the possibilities.
Avatar n tn These remedies are very basic, beneficial, have no side effects, and do not interfere with the dentists prescriptions. First remedial action is to decide to get the negatives (factory products with sugar) out of your diet and install positives (fresh greens, grains, and animal). It may not be easy and can take time, but it is the only way to escape the dental drill.
Avatar m tn m offering this information to you, on the basis that every single person who has tried it, after my recommendation (this is not online, it is in my own town here) has experienced very positive results. No side-effects, no harm, what-so-ever! If you have any better alternatives that work, naturally you wouldn't be posting here, right? If you have any questions or need details on anything let me know. Cheers!
Avatar f tn Omnicef can be used too if you're concerned about the clindamycin's side effects. Omnicef, like all other antibiotics, can have similar side effects since it kills both good and bad bacteria though.
Avatar n tn Hello, I have a tooth (4th upper to the right) which had long ago been root-canaled. Several years ago I noticed it had an abscess. There was also periodic (about once a month) white pus discharge from the gum above. A dentist did a retreatment of the root canal. The pus stopped, however there was still a swelling and the tooth was still giving me problems after a year passed and the swelling remained.
Avatar n tn I chew between nine and eleven pieces of the 2mg a day. What are the harmful effects of the gum (beside, obvious addiction). And, do you have any suggestions as to how to get off the gum?
Avatar f tn It's strange that I get one now while already on antibiotics) and causing weird side effects. I don't seem to have a fever. I don't know at this point whether I should get immediate medical treatment and go to an ER? Or wait until tomorrow (sunday) and try to find a walk-in clinic/urgent care center that is open? Wait until Monday and talk to my dentist? Wait until Monday and see a clinic doctor? I'm very confused at to who to see about what and when.
Avatar n tn I really don't want to take antibiotics, the side-effects are awful. What happens if I don't have an oral surgeon look at it?
522336 tn?1215884409 I'm thinking I can probably go and see a dentist/oral surgeon and if it IS a cyst they would be able to tell with a much less expensive test. Perhaps split the gum right there in the office with a ton of novacaine, remove the cyst, sew me up, and be done with it. I could also, while there, make arrangements to have that cracked wisdom tooth removed. But this ear, nose and throat guy wants me to spend $1,000 on ONE TEST that won't do a thing for treating whatever it is.
Avatar f tn And by the way so far so good no negative reaction or side effects taking clindamycin at all. I know they say that even if it was to affect you could have in weeks or months after you stop but I feel totally fine, never felt nauseous, no sulfur taste in my mouth and taking probiotics still. Dentist wanted me to stay on clindamycin a week after the first round finished.
1783285 tn?1314778498 I have Pseudomonas in the sinus which was being treated with Cipro, but the side effects were horrendous, ie unable to walk. Several months ago it showed up in my right eye and I had a sinus op and an abscess removed from behind the eye, which was caused by the Pseudomonas. Now it is in my left eye, I am due to have and operation which will go into my upper lip and gum to try and get rid of all that is in there and fat moved from my tummy to fill the hole.
Avatar n tn Not to keep rambling, but just an update. I stopped taking the Amoxil yesterday because I don't like the side effects of lightheadedness. Right now, it doesn't hurt to bite down, but the bone under my gums above the tooth is sore to the touch, and it feels like I have a lot of soft tissue puffiness in my jaw and inside my mouth right now, plus my lymph nodes are still swollen and hurting.
1462810 tn?1327364049 I'm so tired of prescribed meds causing more problems than they cure - one prescription leading to side-effects that lead to another prescription and on and on. Antibiotics are a perfect case in point, they destroy the body's natural good bacteria and yeasts - totally vital to your health and wellbeing, totally.
1462810 tn?1327364049 I'm so tired of prescribed meds causing more problems than they cure - one prescription leading to side-effects that lead to another prescription and on and on. Not only will doctors fail to tell you that their medications are going to destroy your system, if there is a natural way of treating the problem, one that works BETTER than a prescription, they won't tell you.
2030686 tn?1351692148 I have really bad teeth some are so broken that there's less than half a tooth left. Right now I have an abscess and I'm gonna go get some antibiotics, but I'm wondering if I should find a way to get them pulled before tx. If I get them all pulled I have nothing left to eat with so I would have to get something to replace them. I can't afford to do any of this. We have some money saved in case my husband has to take too many days off work for my tx but I really think we're gonna need it.
603946 tn?1333945439 Started with molar pain- tooth # 19- flossed well several days- pain seemed to subside- a bit overweight began phentermine and daily exercises- maybe overdid it- and stretched neck muscle terribly on left side- eye felt like it wanted to close- like a migraine- pressure applied on tension point on muscle and my head pain was relieved while pressure applied. Began Inderal 10 mg... Left ear began to ache. Muscle spasms much worse on left side- molar begins to hurt again.
Avatar n tn I don't have faith in his work now. I'm going to try to heal the abscess and not bite on that side. It was never right from the moment he gave me a shot in the gum for that tooth. He gave me 3 shots to that tooth. What came first the irritation by him? it took weeks for the chin area to heal with a lump on my gums. and the bite was never right. What is next, I'm so depressed!
Avatar f tn they probably r the side effects of ur previous medication..try my solution n ull b better inshaAllah..

Avatar n tn What bothers me the most is when I have to talk or present in class because my anxiety causes me to have embarassing physical symptoms including shaking, blushing, fast hearbeat, and shortness of breath. Would you suggest a beta blocker to control these symptoms and if so what are the side effects of beta blockers? Also, I'm kind of hesitant and scared to talk to someone in person about all this stuff.
Avatar n tn I have stopped taking 40 mg of Prozac cold turkey and I had no side effects, and I have done that several times over the years. When I stopped taking Effexor, the side effects felt terrible. Even tapering it down I still felt the side effects although to a lesser degree.
Avatar f tn gellia,well,my jaw is better and ear! time is a friend! i only have sesitivity and i am a lil scared about my enamel,i bleached my teeth a few years ago and after the cleaning i have had that sensitivity issue!!!!!! how can i or a dentist tell if the enamel is gone? my teeth are a lil transparent on the bottom,i wonder if that is causing all this?
Avatar f tn But here's the thing; I happened to be reading the side effects of amoxicillin and believe it or not, anxiety is one of them! So how do you like that, we already have anxiety over our condition and then the treatment for it can make the anxiety worse! Well, I want to reassure you that eventually my anxiety did pass and I returned to my old, normal self. I am convinced the amox was what pushed me over the edge and will never take it again, but I also think the infection itself contributed to it.
587315 tn?1333556383 When to Take Your Cat to the Vet Cats are notorious in their ability to mask discomfort, pain, and illness. It is best to err on the side of caution - at least call your vet with your cat's symptoms, or better yet, take your cat to the vet as soon as possible. The following are just a few signs that should cause you to seek veterinary attention: Ataxia - unsteady gait or staggering. Possible causes include middle ear infections, neurological disease, or poisoning.
Avatar n tn I find it pretty odd that all of these people are having these same side effects and the only people saying there is no way it can be caused from the Titanium are the doctors on the site. Imagine that....
Avatar n tn I went back to the dermatologist because the lesion below my lip that started on my left side had migrated to the right side and was ulcerated. I was also developing an inflamed,red blistery area on my nose. I stopped using the floucininide gel because it was causing small black pieces of debris to ooze from the affected skin areas on my face. The skin on my nose and chin started to slough expelling small blistery clumps of debris.

660300 tn?1224793961 Needless to say the nerve was stretched so i have numbness in my chin and lip on the left side along with my gum. The weird thing is the left corner of my mouth is not numb. The surgeon stated on time would tell. I was already taking B-12 so was happy to read that it might help. i do have the itching creep crawly, burning sensation. Sometimes when I am somewhere really cold my lip gets eally cold and feels weird. I am glad I found this site becuase it has made me hopeful.
