Abscess gum tissue

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess gum tissue


Avatar f tn I've put it on a white tissue and it doesn't leave any stains or anything on the tissue. Is this my gum? scar tissue? drainage from the abscess? Its hard for me to see the spot, but from what I can see and feel it doesn't seem like I'm missing a chunk of my gums.
Avatar n tn If it can manage to break through the jaw bone and exit out of the gum, then the person can live with an abscess for years because the pus buildup in the jaw will leak out of the "gum boil," thus reducing the buildup of bacteria. 3) Which brings us to this question. If it doesn't escape through the jaw and into the mouth through the gums, it can also spread through the fascial planes of the head. These are spaces where muscles and tissues connect.
Avatar n tn Soft tissue abscess may not be present on x-ray, but can be easily seen clinically. If your doctors can not identify the presence of abscess, it's probably not present. Part of your symptomatology does suggest migraine. Seeing an orofacial pain specialist is advised.
Avatar n tn I Had to have two teeth pullled due to an abscess on my gum. I thought that you could not pull teeth while you had and infection in your mouth. Is this true or not. Also if you have teeth pulled does this clear up the infection. Even though you have to take medication for a week to ten days.
Avatar f tn I had a sinus lift done in November 2008 (9 months ago) to prepare for implants to be placed. Ever since the lift surgery, I have had a swelling on the gum tissue where the surgery took place. The swelling extends about 2-3 inches along the gum and a little on the cheek side. It hurts quite a bit. The pain extends to my eye socket and I have frequent nose bleeding on the opposite side.
Avatar n tn can't fully brush or even open my mouth because that will pull the stitches which could rip the gum tissue. So please, you have a lump? get it looked at and get it fixed. I wouldn't wish this on anyone.
Avatar n tn Another more likely scenario is that the abscess will escape the jaw bone and spread to the soft tissue of the head which is extremely dangerous. It can spread down the neck and cause breathing problems or spread to the spaces near the brain. 2) I'm not familiar with your financials but you may want to contact your local dental society and see if there are any resources available for your situation.
1644117 tn?1300978433 this kitty really needs to see a Vet, it sounds painful. it can be caused from an allergy, an injury or yes abscess. the reddness along the gum line is gingivitis and this needs to be cleared up or can lead to health problems like heart disease and loss of teeth. please get a Vet to look at this.....
Avatar n tn All of us carry a lot of bacteria and germs under our finger nails. Having a nail break and get lodged under your gum tissue may have caused a local area of inflammation. If it's not going away on it's own you will definitely want to have a dentist check the area for you.
Avatar m tn The infection forms at the root, and then eats away at the gum tissue, eventually creating a channel that leads to the gum surface. Once the channel reaches the gum surface, it appears to be a pimple or raised, white growth. Gumboils often (though not always) hurt, and sometimes the tooth feels raised or displaced.
Avatar m tn The white line almost looks like the gum is trying to heal (maybe new gum tissue?) but one spot is particularly sore when I brush and looks like a very small white bump/spot (rather than a line following the gum). Could this be a canker sore from all the pushing and retraction of the gum yesterday? I hope that it isn't an abscess (infection). My gum feels sore but not like it is infected. I have been rinsing with warm salt water and peridex.
Avatar n tn a foul smell usually means bacteria. wshether it is from the gum tissue or the tooth or food caught between the teeth will be determined by the dentist. sometimes, when there is a failure of the cement seal of the crown, bacteria leak in and the odor is quite characteristic. If you do not have a problem with the gum tissue in your mouth or specifically around this tooth, this could be the cause.
Avatar n tn A dental abscess can become very painful due to the pressure within the abscess or when tissues become inflamed. If you have a gum or gingival abscess it can occur due to any infection or trauma to the surface of the gum tissue. You will need adequate coverage of antibiotics along with anti inflammatory medications otherwise the abscess can spread through the facial spaces in head and to wherever there is space to grow. It is better to get it seen at the earliest. I hope it helps.
Avatar n tn I am being advised to have #31 extracted and then replace it with an implant. Unfortunately, I'll need a bone graft and a tissue graft. I can't afford these procedures. What would happen if I delay the extraction? And, If I have the extraction would I be a candidate for a partial? #1 and #32 were extracted when I was in my 20s.
Avatar m tn When tapping my abscessed tooth there was incredible pain but now when i tap this tooth the pain hardly changes. The gum tissue above my abscessed tooth was also very sensitive, dark pink, and began to develop a boil. There is no sign of that this time. Salt water relieved pain completely when i had my abscessed tooth but now salt water has no effect whatsoever. I went to the doctor and he believed it to be sinusitus and prescribed antibiotics and saline nose rinse.
Avatar f tn My dentist said it wasn't bone/tooth it is gum/soft tissue issue. No pain, abscess, swelling or inflammation. He wants me to see a periodontist, I will. But, I was wondering, ahead of appointment ,what other possibilities than a cancerous tumor? The color isn't any different from the rest of my gums. It is smooth. Can it be just excess hard fibrous tissue growth or something less frightening than cancer? Thank you.
Avatar n tn a sinus tact is like a "tunnel" through the bone and through or around the gum tissue from the abcess to the outside (in the mouth somewhere like the palate for upper teeth or the soft tissue vestibule by the roots of the teeth). it's basically a tract through which the abcess can drain. teeth with tracts usually have been abcessed for quite some time.
Avatar n tn There can be a number of things that are going on. The temp maybe irritating the gum tissue or the root canal maybe still a problem. I certainly would not permanently cement any crown before the tooth is asymptomatic.I think Advil would better serve your purposes.
2093279 tn?1379551553 Hello, A dental examination is necessary for accurate diagnosis and management of your condition. Death of pulp tissue can lead to serious tooth infection and abscess. The treatment and outcome of your tooth depends on the type, location and extent of crack. The sooner a broken tooth is re-implanted, the chances of embedding itself back into the gum are enhanced. It is best to make an appointment to see your dentist and follow his advice. I sincerely hope that helps. Best of luck and regards!
Avatar n tn I don't dare to poke the area with anything else other than my tongue, as I know I can do much more harm than good by prodding the tissue too much. So does this sound like a possible infection / gum abscess, or is it part of the normal healing process. And yes, I do know not even the best-trained dentist can give me an answer without looking at it, but I just want a pointer as to whether it's time to make a dental appointment or if wait-and-see might be a better strategy. Thanks in advance!
Avatar f tn This may present as pus draining canal, ludwig’s angina, infection to tissue spaces of mediastinum, septicemia, brain abscess and meningitis. You will need to report to the emergency department immediately and treatment would involve a concerted effort of a dentist, neurologist and an intensivist . Take care.
317787 tn?1473362051 Just wanted to get back to you, I saw the surgeon, he said he thinks it is gum tissue healing after the tooth was cut out. He called it granulation though he said it did look like a fistula (infection) he said give it another week.
Avatar f tn The only thing that I can feel every once in a while is a little pressure around a tooth and the gum looks a little swollen. I think it started after I was eating cornnuts. I bite down and felt a sharp pain like I might have poked the gum with a piace of the cornnut.. Will I make things worse if I wait to go back to him in May for my 6-months check up.
Avatar f tn The infection can spread into the deeper jaw and surrounding tissue or other parts of the body. It is possible that the abscess has not healed completely. A clinical examination by a dentist is very important. Treatment will depend on the clinical findings. I hope it helps. Best wishes and regards!
Avatar f tn for me I did a terrible thing with teeth and led to tooth abscess and gum infection ..it keeps inflammating..I guess that was my daemon ..must have spread to brain via nerve tissue..
Avatar n tn I had an tiny abscess so deep in the root of my tooth (1st molar at the top closest to the front) that after trying to get to it via the normal rout i.e. through the part of the tooth that shows, they had to split my gum and go into it directly through the root and fill it that way after cleaning out the infection. It required four stitches - the split in my gum was around three inches long which I found a little severe for one tooth root.
Avatar f tn My symptoms began about 2 years ago with back to back sinus infections. I consulted an ENT who spent less than 20 minutes w/ me & suggested a CT scan which showed minimal mucus lining in my maxillary sinus cavities. At that time I couldn't be assured it would help & ultimately decided not to go through with the procedure. A month or so later I had severe pain in my left cheek/jaw & then my gum began to swell substantially.
Avatar n tn The vet gave her a dose of strong antibiotics for 1 week to see if it helped as he thought that the abscess caused a pocket of inection, it didn't so we brought her back in to open her cheek and remove any infection. When he opened her cheek, he did not see any infection but thick tissue so he removed it and left an open incision to allow it to drain. 3 days later (today) and the incision closed and her cheek is swollen again with drainage from her gum.
198506 tn?1251160515 it may be a periorinitis which is infammation of the gum tissue round a tooth-- especailly wisdom teeth that cant quite poke there way in to the mouth correctly due to crowding. It could also be a number of other things. You need to see a dentist and have it checked ut. Dentistry is pretty painless these days so try to relax. if you need the wisom teeth removed there are excellent short term general anestheticout there and many oral surgeons who use them.
