Abscess tooth and heart problems

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess tooth and heart problems


Avatar f tn An abscessed tooth is a painful infection at the root of a tooth or between the gum and a tooth. It's most commonly caused by severe tooth decay. Other causes of tooth abscess are trauma to the tooth, such as when it is broken or chipped, and gingivitis or gum disease. These problems can cause openings in the tooth enamel, which allows bacteria to infect the center of the tooth (called the pulp). The infection may also spread from the root of the tooth to the bones supporting the tooth.
Avatar n tn If there's an abscess, root canal treatment should resolve the problem. If not, a re-treatment of the root canal is possible or an apicoectomy in which they remove the tip of the infected root along with the infection in that area. Referral to a specialist for the procedure may be necessary.
Avatar m tn After an exame, dental x-rays, pulling a tooth, and ect... The total bill was $100.00 and I was expecting $5,000.00. So, ask the dentist how much he will charge for his services.
Avatar m tn That same day, I went to the ER and had it drained and was put on Amoxil. Now, 1 day later, the abscess seems to have grown in size. Should I get it re-drained? Do I need a root canal?
Avatar n tn I still have these symptoms and not knowing what causes them is a horrible feeling. I had a filling in my tooth 1 week before this all started and also got a abscess on this particular tooth last month and wonder if this may have anything to do with the symptoms. I would be very greatful if anybody could help.
Avatar n tn I visited a great dentist and he said that I have two teeth infections/ and abscess. One of the tooth infections was over a tooth that had a root canal ( about 15 yrs ago) So, my dentist recommended extractions on both infected back teeth. He also recommended implants as well. I was ok with this and didnt want to go through the root canal procedure again. Plus, extraction was recommended in my particular case. I just got one tooth extracted today.
Avatar n tn s got a tooth abscess in a healthy tooth and that the tooth should be extracted. He said it is unusual in cats and that they don't know the cause. He also suggested some antibiotics for a few days before the surgery to help with the infection. Just wondering if it is worth trying to save the tooth. Go through the course of antibiotics and see if he gets better. My vet made me feel like I was just being cheap and that conventional wisdom is to just remove the tooth.
Avatar n tn After I visit my dentist, they found out one of my tooth have pocket depth11 in one point of my lower back tooth. They suggest a tooth extraction, and get second oponion. I ate anitbiotic and now my toothache is gone, I started root canal on that tooth, and doctor recommand me to see a gum specialist before they do the root canal. They said I have Periodontal Disease, I am wondering if this tooth can be saved by the gum specialist. Is sugical gum treatment can save my tooth?
1842266 tn?1318860459 Ive had an abscessed tooth and got that extracted. 2 of my teeth are broken to the gum and one is just the shell of the tooth nothing inside and half broken. I dont have swelling or bleeding gums , I dont have pain just broken decaying teeth.
Avatar f tn I have a painful abscess tooth leading to tooth aches! I need to see a dentist but until then what can i do to soothe the pain for now?
Avatar f tn can it be done with out anesthesia, and what are some herbs and natural remedies to clear the infected area after the tooth is romoved?
Avatar f tn I wrote the original post back in 2009 and my root canal (and crown) on my front tooth lasted 8 years and then the problems started! In the last year, the abscess returned so I had another root canal (which failed) and then an apicoectomy last week by a specialist endodontist. But here I am... at 1am, lying awake in awful pain. I'm pleased to report I still have no fillings but I'm coming to the realisation it may be time to say goodbye to this tooth forever...
Avatar n tn I have had the same abscess over my bad tooth and pop it like a pimple 2 or 3 times a day. I went to the dentist 4 yrs ago and i needed a rootcanal back then. The cost is ridiculous. All my dental work was over $5,000. I can imagine how much it is now 4 yrs later. I don't have any medical insurance and can't even get approved for the monthly payment plan.. I have had this for almost a year now.
Avatar f tn and this is exactly how i began i started with cavaties didnt take care of them my teeth started decaying didnt do much either financially it was impossible then i got an abscess tooth and it took about a year to get it pulled and with alot of google (never google) i began this fear like yourself of dying of the infection spreading to my heart and or brain i have had every test done available and im still not convinced i am healthy i have started the process of my teeth getting fixed and im stil
Avatar n tn My guess to your situation would be that a dental infection started in your tooth and has spread from the pulp of the tooth into the jaw bone. From the jaw bone, it has broken through the jaw and is now spreading through the soft tissue (muscles, skin, etc) and spreads out to wherever there is space to grow. The antibiotics should be completely finished. Is your doctor bringing you back for further treatment?
Avatar m tn ive had certain problems with my upper front left tooth, its gray/blue color at the top. the tooth has had many problems for a few years. i chipped it when i was younger and a few years later a pus bubble formed, ive had certain root canals, then when those failed i had a certain procedure where he did some thing at the tip of the root canal to try and save it.
14987752 tn?1437741703 Going back to your dentist to have a post op exam is advised. Your descriptions suggest presence of bacterial resistance to amoxicillin. Switching to other antibiotics may help sooner recovery.
Avatar n tn A pulled tooth can result in numb toes and leg cramps, an overdose of anesthesia can last for two weeks and cause stomach problems, physical imbalance, or more. Root canals and dental infections can affect heart rate. Antibiotics can problem digestion. And pulled teeth are a source of sorrow, they never return. The primary answer (to teach children) is to do everything possible to have good teeth and stay away from dentist offices.
Avatar f tn My first thought when looking at this was that it is perhaps a tooth abscess. Has he had his teeth checked recently? On the other hand, it could also be a cyst. If, when you gently feel it, does it feel attached somehow, or does it lift up with the skin? If it lifts up it sounds very much like a cyst. Does it appear to cause him any discomfort or do you see him shaking his head sometimes? It has a very rounded appearance, and that is quite cyst-like.
Avatar f tn Over a year ago I noticed a lump in my jaw, under where the tooth was. But I never really had a toothache, maybe just a couple times and very short lived, like a couple hours. Is that "normal"? I had the tooth pulled yesterday. The dentist said that now that the tooth is gone, the lump will go away too. It's way too swollen and painful to touch right now, but how long should it take for the lump to go away? I'm also on Penicillin V K, for 8 days now.
Avatar n tn I'v just noticed a big abscess above my tooth, i already know i need root canal treatment for the tooth but my dentist can't take me for another week. Is it safe to wait that long without anti-biotics or treatment?
Avatar n tn 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. (All the time I was suffering from a nasal pain on the right side of the bridge above it and felt that it was somehow connected to the tooth. By the way, some weeks ago I found confirmation to this suspicion when I found that the tooth was indeed linked to the nose in Chinese medicine - click on tooth No.
Avatar f tn I have a abscess that popped I went to re got antibiotics but I feel dizzy nausea and keep burping cold and clammy sweat should I go back to er
Avatar n tn t not have TOUCHED that tooth. The fluids inside of an abscess are highly toxic and potentially deadly. The White that you are seeing is more than likely the the abscess on the surface of the skin. The only thing than you can safely do is take antibiotics until the abscess is gone. It's very important that you take ALL of the antibiotics until the whole bottle is gone. Just because it stops hurting does not mean that the infection is gone.
