Abscess jaw ache

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess jaw ache


Avatar m tn Since you say the pain started in your jaw a couple of months ago and now you feel it in your ear, I'm thinking it could be TMJ - which is a disorder of the jaw joint. It can cause many symptoms, including ear or jaw pain, as well as headaches, etc. Do you ever catch yourself clenching your jaw? Does your jaw crack or catch when you try to open it wide, such as with yawning?
Avatar f tn Back in January of 2012 I was seen by my dentist because of a tooth ache. I was prescribed amoxicillin 500mg every 6 hrs for 10 days. I finished the medication everything was fine until April. Same thing again, Was given the same meds and everything was fine. I was referred to a oral suergon to have the tooth extracted. Made an appointment but cant be seen till 8/8 { EVERYONE IS REFERRED TO THEM}. Now as of 3 days ago the same thing has happened.
Avatar f tn Dentist treated with Cavitron and said tooth would need to be extracted if swelling continued. Four days ago, had tooth 14 prepped for crown. All okay first day, then cheek and jaw started swelling and have not improved. No pain in tooth 14. Made an independent appt with Oral Surgeon but can't get in for three weeks. Any ideas/suggestions? And, why would tooth 14 exacerbate 29? Or, is it a separate problem? Thanks so much for any help/advice!
Avatar n tn I am experiencing throbbing and radiating jaw pain after chewing. The pain is severe and pulsating and lasts for what seems a long period of time. It slowly declines to an ache. It is mainly on my left side, but will radiate to the front as I chew. I did have a crown recently placed on my last bottom left molar (3 weeks ago) that is still sensitive to cold and hot liquids. Could this be an abscess?
Avatar f tn Now iv had my filling I no longer have the toothache but I am suffering from this face ache. It is really sore to touch and when I open my mouth my jaw hurts too. Anyone know what this ...
Avatar n tn I lost a filling about two years ago and just recently it has been starting to ache . This morning i woke up and the left bottom side of my face, where the tooth is, is HUGE. It feels like a hard ball on my jaw below the tooth. What is it? How can it be fixed? When will the swelling go down? Is there something I can do? Thanks ahead of time.
Avatar m tn TMJ disorders — a type of temporomandibular disorder or TMD — can cause pain in your jaw joint and in the muscles that control jaw movement.
Avatar f tn She had a very severe abscess in her jaw (external). When the lump started to appear and cause severe pain in her jaw, the doctors took xrays and said, "Yes, cancer in the left and right mandable... and it looks like the lymph nodes are being affected." Now, the doctors say that cancer is not likely in this area and the infection is severe. They lanced the area, drained and started IV antibiotics. This morning she says that she has a hole in her gum.
Avatar f tn I immediately told my parents and they said I must wait and see what happens , its been three days and four nights since then, my gums are still swollen around that tooth and I noticed my jaw is swollen and feels hard if I touch it and its difficult for me to open my mouth widely..its the bottom right side of my mouth. Even my ear is paining. I have already told my parents three times about it but they say I have to wait.
Avatar f tn I have a rock solid, painless, enlarged lymph node under my jaw to the right. It feels to be around 1-1.5 cm as is hard and feels attached to the cartilage. It is not sore at all. My glands have been coming up and going down randomly. They have actually ballooned up and not 5 minutes later gone back down. I have had no fevers and only night sweats once or twice. My ears are now starting to ache periodically and I am getting pressure headaches. Also my throat is sore and neck is stiff.
Avatar m tn Hi, Over the past few weeks i suffered a great deal of tooth ache,but left it too long due to my fear and bad experiences in the past. I left it to the point where my tooth nerve was dying and was painful to drink hot and cold drinks. My side of face started to get a numb feeling ,then wed 5 days ago i woke up to a swollen and very painful check .I made a appointment and got to see a dentist that day.
Avatar f tn I do feel better overall, I no longer feel as ill as I did before having the 2 teeth pulled, but the painful ache in the jaw joint area really concerns me. And the fevers are really frustrating - they are low grade, never higher than 101 F, but when I get them I feel very weak and very tired, and have to drop whatever I'm doing, lay down, and apply ice packs. Otherwise I start to feel like I'm going to pass out and start to feel frantic with heat.
Avatar n tn So about a month ago i started getting head aches every night which was unusual .. then it felt like i had an ear ache which i had never experienced before... then after that for 2 or 3 days i was in terrible terrible shape the pain was unbearable !!! so im pretty sure i had an Abscess tooth.. i was in soooo much pain after eating for hours at a time and happened a few times a day.. i couldnt take it!! i couldnt sleep and had to keep an ice pack on my head to help numb the pain..
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 Before my retreatment on my root canal my glands swollen, develop an abscess in the pulp, and pain in my mouth. Since the retreatment my left gland under jaw still somewhat swollen, my teeth hurt to hot & cold, ears ache, and back the neck aches...Is it possible before the root canal retreatment the abscess caused the swollen gland and still have an infection? I am not sure if I should go to a doctor or the dentist.
Avatar f tn The following day the pain increases and the swollen spreads gradually through my right cheek and one side of my jaw, I do take pain relief (Tylenol and Advil) the pains will relief me for few hours and begin to ache my agaiin, I have used lots of mouth wash and warm wAter but still remain the same, am in serious pain right now please help me wit what I can buy to use. One more thing I just relocated like one month ago.
15211698 tn?1439163236 This is the approximate date this "episode began." I believed it to be an abscessed cavity in my bottom far right molar. OR my long over due wisdom teeth pushing through. I have been having mild on and off again bouts that I related to mid life teething! I chalked it up to wisdom teeth. This time however it was anything but mild. I begged for any pain killer I could find from friends. I went through a tube of jell and a bottle of liquid tooth numbing agents..
Avatar f tn Hi. I have been having upper mouth pain for about 3 days. There is no abscess or infection of my teeth. I went to the dentist 3 weeks ago and was given a clean bill of health. I went to the dentist today and he said he is not sure what is causing the pain. He took a bunch of x-rays, but could find nothing wrong. He said it's not a cracked tooth, cavities, or an abscess. I have already had all my wisdom teeth pulled. Sometimes the pain is also referred to my lower jaw.
Avatar f tn I assumed I had an abscess but an xray revealed the sinus in my lower jaw was blocked due to infection. It is painful and theres a dull ache all the time.
Avatar f tn I have a 'blister' at the back of my mouth on the gum between the upper and lower jaw (past my teeth). It is painless, has been coming and going for the past few weeks and often pops with a fairly tasteless fluid. IIt is about 1mmx5mm. I also have enlarged glands on that side of my neck which ache (scanned 18 months ago and said to be reactive lymph glands) and suffered sudden hearing loss in that ear in November 2006.
Avatar m tn surprise when he open up the top root the infection stunk up his whole office he cleaned it out and filled it and I have not had any problems for 2 1/2 years. Now I am on vacation am on a immune suppressor and all of sudden I get a massive tooth ache the same bicuspid. Went ER got antibiotics and painkiller. Swelling has now moved further up along jaw line and in to the line of sight. Not home until midnight Monday does anybody have any advice?
Avatar n tn I have constant ache and hypersensitivity to cold in my lower right jaw with attacks of increased pain throughout the day affecting the entire right side of my face with little tenderness in my neck under chin and back of jaw over the muscle. The pain does not last more than two weeks and occurs about every two months. It started as random attacks of sharp pain but on the second occurrence there was a more continued ache and the right side of my lip went numb.
Avatar f tn I am scared to death now.. A couple of weeks ago my ear started to ache once or twice a day. It was a stabbing pain. Then last week the area in front of Both of my ears became sensitive to touch. My boyfriend gave me a Kiss and it hurt! It subsided on the right side but now there is a constant dull ache deep in my left ear which worsen when i move my tongue. It definitely triggers it sometimes swallowing too.
581210 tn?1220838380 However, I still have daily episodes of intense pain that may leave a lingering severe ache before the pain remits. Anti-inflammatories may help, but not always. Tylenol doesn't help. I was referred to an oral surgeon who said it is definitely a nerve issue, and if I wasn't better in a month, we might consider Neurontin. The site of injection is healed, no infection, no abscess. On x-rays, everything looks physically okay.
Avatar n tn Upper left molar #14 was extracted 8 months ago. Prior extraction was experiencing ache on left side of face especially cheek bone & around eye, slightly swollen. Asked for antibotics, he told me what I was experiencing had nothing to do with the tooth & seek medical doctor. Tooth did not come out in one piece. Ten days later went back to dentist as sharp piece of bone sticking out of extraction site. Dentist removed, said it was not uncommon & that everything looked fine.
Avatar m tn i have a blinding headache (sharp 'stabby' feeling) my face is very swollen on one side, and experiencing ear ache as well as really acute pain in the jaw directly above the root canal tooth. (repeated dosing with high level pain killers offering no relief) I know I will not be sleeping at all tonight.. I know I should have gone to the dentist (insert crazy, busy work, wife hit by car this week while walking and sick kids) well before i got to this point..
Avatar m tn Most of the time it is just that, but sometimes it gets more acute and I feel pain constantly - it is still located mainly in the right upper back jaw (sometimes it feels as if it was in the cheek, but I can't find any single painful spot when I touch it - nor is there one on the gums), as if in the teeth, but also below the right nostril. Sometimes also the right tonsil and the lymph nodes on the neck are swollen and painful.
Avatar f tn I also had filling placed in the tooth next to it. Over the next week I developed a tooth ache in the tooth below that one in the lower right jaw. I was due for more work at the dentist anyway so I went back and she replaced a filling on that tooth which had cracked and did another filling next to that one too. I have not been able to eat on that side of mouth since that day.
