Abscess tooth bone

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess tooth bone


Avatar f tn I have never had a tooth abscess until now. I called my dentist and they are trying to help me to keep cost down bc I have no insurance and xmas is right around corner so money is tight. I have a back molar that broke about 3 months ago ive been trying to save up for root canal but now I think I will need it pulled. The tooth stopped hurting and then I got the pus pocket under it that would flare up but then go down.
Avatar f tn Also, not taking care of an abscess tooth and the infection going into your blood stream in severe cases can cause death.
Avatar m tn I have fairly white healthy teeth, but I have an abscess behind my tooth, how can I get rid of it, or sooth the pain.
Avatar f tn After a panoramic radiograph he told me my upper left molar (tooth 15) needed to be removed as it had an abscess forming at the root. He convinced me to have bone grafting done at the same time in the event I wanted to proceed with an implant down the line. This was done on a Friday. By Monday the pain was still so severe I called the office and was told I should give it another day or 2 and if there was no improvement they would see me the next day, which is today.
Avatar m tn not however my upper lip and face has begun to swell up and become quite sensitive to touch. after doing some research online I think that I have abscess in my front tooth, but I'm starting to get worried at the fact that my tooth is no longer in pain. Could that mean my tooth is already dead? Also the swelling is getting a little worse every day, I'm not sure how serious all of this is.
Avatar f tn The only possible reason for this abscess that I can think of is that about a year ago, my front tooth got the corner chipped off. Please respond asap... I am a worrier!! This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/652619'>dental abscess</a>.
Avatar f tn Hi, I have had an abscess tooth since February I think and I went to a root canal specialist last week on Thursday and he told me to take Amoxicillion on Tuesday but to take it sooner if swelling starts. Well I cant get the antibiotic til tomorrow. And I am afraid the infection has spread to my jaw bone or something, it feels like there is pressure on the left side of my face and alittle swollen. Alittle throbbing as well. I am getting surgery done this week on Thursday. What should I do?
Avatar n tn It is possible that your teeth are sound and that you have an abscess originating from the gum/bone attachment rather than the tooth itself. Popping the pimple releases the pus and helps to drain the area and the antibiotics also help to keep the infection in check. I would recommend swishing with a warm salt rinse to help pull fluids from the swelling to help reduce it. The best course of action is to treat the actual infection though and to resolve it.
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 n tn could the wisdom tooth have caused a break in my jaw bone, or eaten away at the jaw bone itself and how much immediate danger could be involved in this condition? i am aware that i need to seek treatment from an oral surgeon, but cannot afford to do so at this time. i am unsure, though, if this is something i need immediate medical attention for, such as that from my local emergency room.
Avatar n tn 1) There are several different types of abscess but the most common is a periapical abscess in which there is a cavity in the tooth that invades the pulp of the tooth. The bacteria then travels down the pulp into the jawbone and begins to destroy the jawbone.
Avatar f tn So is your dentist recommending to extract the tooth and place a bone graft in? I'm not what the success rate of a bone graft is when there's an infection in the socket.
Avatar n tn When you say that the crowns didn't feel as if they were seated correctly do you mean that when you bit down it felt high, or like you were only biting on that tooth? That can definately cause trauma to the tooth. Sometimes just the process of getting a crown prep done is enough to cause a tooth to die. Some people are more prone to this happening, so maybe that's the case with you.
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 m tn Hi, I had crown done following the root canal treatment on 14th tooth 3 years ago due to a regular recurring abscess. After the root canal treatment and crown, i used to get abscess at exactly the same location every now and then but that time with no pain. A month ago the abscess recurred again after a long while, so i went to a dentist (a different this time since i have moved places). He suggested that the previous root canal was not done properly and that the crown had to be removed.
Avatar n tn For an abscess going on 4 yrs, wouldn't associated bone loss perhaps dictate need for extraction? Does root canal or apicoectomy resolve all such abscess cases?
Avatar f tn I have mod-advanced periodontal disease and developed a PA abscess and cyst in 7 months which caused severe pain and swelling that required extraction. How did it come about? Is it from dental decay combined with periodontal disease? It was tooth 26 with over 7 mm gum pocket and 50% mobility.. Just wondering if I could have saved it earlier with maybe a root canal? Hope to hear from some expert.
Avatar f tn By my description she mentioned something about fissure and the implant could cause some small infection that come to the top in the form of a pimple on my gums but could also be an abscess from a near by tooth. She said that it will continue to drain because of the type of infection and the fact that it needs to "get out" someway. As depressing as it seems she did say that the implant may need to come out and we may have to start over.
Avatar m tn It could be an abscess of the tooth. The looseness of it would indicate something's causing some damage to the bone, resulting in less support of the tooth. Seeing a dentist is the best option and best way to prevent getting the tooth pulled.
Avatar n tn If I took my fingernail, I could pull part of my tooth off. I can't see back there to see what is happening and it doesn't hurt. Help!
Avatar f tn i have a really bad tooth infection, how do i know if it is in my blood stream and what are the effects it will have on me?
Avatar n tn I had an abscess, got antibiotics for a few weeks, until the dentist cleaned out the bone four weeks ago. The implant is still there. Here is my question: since I have first developed the abscess I keep sweating at night. I'm waking up basically every night sweating. It's not really bad, I never had to change PJs or sheets, but it's really disturbing. Do you have any idea if this abscess and an infection around the implant could be the cause of this? Have you seen this before?
Avatar m tn My husband gets bad tooth absesesses (excuse spelling) and it went away with some amoxicilin, but now he has a hard as a rock round pouch on his jaw bone and he's in a lot of pain. we dont have medical insurance and live far from the er. Maybe you can help me with what it might be? thanks.
Avatar f tn I had an absessed tooth removed last week and I still have a bit of a lump or swelling in my jaw bone. Is this normal and does it take along time to recover. I am also on antibiotics still.
Avatar n tn 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.. So i went to the dentist and he got the "bad root" out and i got antibiotics i took for a week.. its been about 2 weeks or so now and i feel some what normal..
Avatar f tn I have a bad tooth and I think it is becoming abcessed. I have no dental insurance.
