Abscess on mouth

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess on mouth


Avatar m tn Now, it's a constant throbbing pain in the lower left side of my mouth. The left side of my neck and face is puffy, and my glands on the same side are swollen and sore. And now, when I close my mouth, my teeth don't fit together. Also, my jaw is so stiff that I can't open my mouth more than about half an inch. I looked on webmd, and the symptoms seemed to be that of a dental abscess. Do you agree? Is there anything I can do besides seeing a dentist?
Avatar m tn I have an abscess on the roof of my mouth from a bad wisdom tooth and been on antibiotics for 3 days now and it's only gotten bigger when will it eventually go down
Avatar m tn I am a little worried because the botched filling (meant to be a crown) has signs on the tooth that this was the cause of the abscess and my cheek is still very large ( a little more embarassing presenting in public than anything) as there is no pain. The cheek has changed shape but is still large and moved down towards my jaw instead of up near my eye. How long does the abscess take to drain? as the dentist was looking for drainage that never came.
1881960 tn?1320703566 My doctor gave me penicillin and something for pain but its day 3 and nothing has changed. I can feel the abscess in my mouth for the first time today. It's not getting smaller, only larger! I am 29 and on coumadin and lovenox so no dentist will see me. I've called dozens of dentists to no avail. I am trying not to become frustrated but each passing day I'm stuck in bed isn't helping. Any suggestions ?
Avatar f tn Remember not to drink alcohol when taking it. As for infection, chopping up some garlic and eating it raw on a salad or on a sandwich would help. Garlic has been in the news lately again as a wonder worker. It acts like a natural antibiotic and quickly goes into the blood stream.

Avatar f tn My two year old cat came home last night and this morning I notice an abscess on the bottom of his mouth.

744115 tn?1232714417 a month and a half ago, i started having pain in my mouth. I tried over the counter drugs like ibuprofin but then the pain got worse. I went to the walk-in clinic and was prescribed the zpak (which was only 6 pills) omeprazole (because aspirins hurt my stomach) and declofenac. I am severely allergic to penecillin. I am unable to get a dental appointment until february 4th and they have me on their emergency list. my meds have run out and the pain is worse.
Avatar n tn I am worried I have a dental infection spreading from neglected dental work, that was complicated by a mis-diagnosis. Sorry for dragging this on, and on. Does a tooth abscess ever not show up on a X-ray? Possibly draining out before X-ray is taken? draining into roof of mouth or sinus?
Avatar f tn I have an abscess; upper right; the tooth broke off only some left close to the gums. My cheek is swollen near right side of nose and mouth and up under my right eye; very bad pain. Dentist put me on penicillin. My question is can they pull the tooth out while I am swollen? and how bad will it feel when they pull it? I have a fear of dentist and I will get it pulled out because I am more worried about the infection spreading to my brain ect..
Avatar n tn I have a liquid filled abscess right between my molars and cheek on the top left side of my mouth. It feels like a water balloon. It stretches over 2 or 3 of my molars. I have absolutely no pain in my teeth at all. But the swelling hurts. I have been taking amoxicillan 500mg 3 times a day for the last 2 days (course lasts for 7 days). The swelling has not gone down at all. I want to know if I could pop the abscess to drain the abscess? If yes how can I do it at home?
Avatar f tn Hi i was wandering if anyone could tell me if an abscess on the groin area was supposed to disapear completely or not, as i had what i would call an abscess on my right hand side of the groin it was only pea shaped, then grew bigger and started pussing.
Avatar n tn I have a severe abscess tooth on the lower left side of my mouth. I have been to the ER and the dentist. I'm on antibiotics (clindamycin) 600mg ibuprofen and hydrocodone for pain. My dentist scheduled me an appointment to have the tooth pulled next Friday but since taking the antibiotics the whole left side of my face is extremely swollen my lips are severely swollen to the point I can't eat can barely drink and can't sleep.
Avatar n tn I have had two crowns from different dentists that have resulted in abscesses - the first of which went into my bone and I had to have surgery. I told both dentists that the crowns did not feel as if they were seated correctly, but of course I was ignored. The dentists have just told me that these things "happen". I don't believe it. It is either incompetence on their part, or there is something wrong with my body.
Avatar n tn The water was cloudy most likely because there is at least one more drainage hole on the inside of your cat's mouth that the stuff has been leaking out of. These kind of abcesses are usually started by a minor, one time injury like a puncture or scratch. Since you are only seeing blood when you clean it, it has already drained. However, these abcesses can reform when the holes close over.
Avatar m tn Feeling very unwell, sometimes unable to get out of bed, pain on left side of face and head. Had x rays, cat scan, MRI, blood work. All normal except for slight thickness on left side. Nobody can find infection, and yet I respond to antibiotics to the point I am able to function, ei. Get out of bed, shower, go for a walk. I am currently taking ibuprophen for pain. Outside of this, I was a very healthy, active person.
Avatar n tn It immediately began swelling so I went to the dentist thurs who couldn't even do a norm xray cause of how bad the swelling is. I can barely open my mouth at all can't eat much of anything....the doc put me on amoxcillin and percecet but they are not doing anything. My swelliing has now moved from just my cheek to the entire right side of my face into my ear and up to my temples & eye...all I waant to do is scream and cry it hurts so bad. Ibprophen and alieve wont touch the swelling.
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 It has been swelling on the buccal side and now has a draining fistula. I am letting it drain and using Glyoxide. There is no pain involved. The last time I had a lower right molar re-root canaled for $1,492,00 (the first on it having been 2 yrs prior) and re-crowned the tooth only lasted 8 months then it was abscessed again which resulted in an extraction. I guess my question is as long as it is draining and I am keeping it clean how dangerous is this to my overall health.
Avatar n tn my dog had a retribulbar abscess drain on 3/19/2012 , he hasnt ate since and i try o give him his pills but it hurts him and spits it out . What should i do ?
Avatar f tn I have been terrified of mouth work since childhood. He told me he would not work on me again unless I took Valium first. He said He needs to cut open the gum and drill into my jaw bone to remove the teeth. I did not go back and that was a year ago. Now the half tooth is abscessed. My face is so swollen its causing pressure in my eye ear and nose. Ive been on cephalexin for a bit more then 24 hrs now but the swelling and pain has not subsided at all. So my question is, when can i expect relief?
Avatar n tn so i was wanting to ask if you could give a brief description on the mechanics of an abscess. specifically, 1)how does the abscess manage to make these holes in the jawbone itself? 2) if a person had lived through an abscess (such as they do in modern times) does the damage to the jaw bone repair itself, or is it a permenent fixture? 3) exactly how were these abscesses fatal? how does it truly manage to kill?
Avatar n tn From the antibiotics? Or the actual abscess.. I read somewhere that it is possible for the abscess to still linger until all the dead cells are removed so the taste/smell can linger. Any ideas? I am not in horrible pain so I don't believe it is a dry socket. I can't really describe the taste other than unpleasent. Also, brownish small globs were coming out of the area the night after my extraction.
Avatar f tn While I was there the dentist pushed on the swollen lump on the left side of my mouth and got it to drain some of the infection out. However, I am still very swollen on the roof of my mouth and it does not seem to be changing. I have been on antiobiotics since 5/14/12. This is very painfully and I am worried since I have had MRSA about 2 yrs ago. Any advise would be greatly appreciated!
