Common Questions and Answers about Abscess tooth crown

abscess

Avatar n tn 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 Do you think this is a definite sign of a tooth abscess due to the trauma of the crown? When I called about the appointment, they were already talking about the possibility of being referred to an endodontist for a potential root canal. Is this my only option? Can I not just kill off the infection with antibiotics? I broke the bank on the crown (no dental insurance), and I simply cannot afford another expensive procedure.
Avatar f tn I have had my nerve took out of my tooth and my dentist put a crown. Over it and a couple of months later its really sore but i dont know if its sore because i have an abscess or if i need to get my tooth checked out again 1.Te dentist gave me amoxicillin capsules but how long does it take for them to work . 2. The lept part of my upper lip has swollen and my left side ear hurts aswell as the left side of the neck ?
Avatar f tn Most x-rays will not provide excellent clarity of a crowned tooth, thus missing the decay. If you are having pain, the tooth under the crown is inflamed, infected and bacteria are usually the cause. Antibiotics may provide some temporary partial relief but will likely not cure the problem. A root canal is most likely needed, and a dentist can do this, but the best is to see an Endodontics, which is a specialist for doing root canals.
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.
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 m tn My implant was completed 4 months ago with the crown and out of nowhere I got an abscess in the same spot of my gums above the tooth. Much smaller than other time and no pain or swelling. Can you get an infection and not have to have the tooth removed? Does this happen? Thank you.
Avatar f tn Had abscessed tooth on top under gold crown. At the same time bottom gums swelled and I was told that one of my back molars needed extracted. Had 3 teeth pulled. My gums are still swollen on bottom which all doctors say they look pink and healthy. I feel pressure in my jaw. I feel like I'm being strangled in my throat. Now I feel like I'm in a tunnel when I speak. All these symptoms came one after the other and I don't know what to do.
Avatar n tn Doxycyclin may not be the antibiotic of choice if the tooth under the crown has now become infected. It would at least warrant a call. Please don't wait out the two weeks. Infections can become incredibly nasty in a short period of time where a phone call may solve the problem. Please don't put this off. GOOD LUCK.

Avatar n tn it sounds like you need to have the tooth pulled asap. in a perfect world a root canal and crown or an implant would be ideal depending on how badly damaged the tooth is but these procedures can cost around 1500 to 5000 depending on where you live. you need to see a dentist right now to evaluate your situation and go through your options. if you have a local dental school or low income clinic in your area you might want to check them out. good luck!
Avatar n tn He decided on root canal and called the endodontist (appt is for Thursday). The dentist showed me the film and although the tooth root looks okay (no black area of abscess), there is a "white ring shadow" above the tooth root. He said that is indicative of a sinus problem. He asked if I had a cold or sinus infection but I haven't had any cold or nasal drip for years.
Avatar n tn The new dentist said that the cause of the infection was from a a defective crown and bad post. The dentist did not shape the crown correctly. It was too high giving me an incorrect bite. The post (screw) was not lodged deep enough in my jaw therefore leaving a large space for area for bacteria to grow and multiply. As a result I had an abscess in my jaw with severe pain. The bacteria started eating away at my jawbone.
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 m tn I had an LVI princess crown on my tooth behind the extracted tooth which was pulled off during my extraction. Dentist put my crown back on then said due to the abscess the tooth should drain. My question is twofold after 2 weeks i(btw the 'clot' is in place over the hole') should my lips and jaw be swollen and should my LVI crown be missisfitting? LVI uses light to bond crowns - this dentist used a glue to re-bond my crown I am concerned that I may have an infection with the glue they used.
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 and btw make sure to get crown on tooth asap after rct is done..
20847907 tn?1534543344 can tooth abscess cause a lymph node to rise i had it removed and the dentist said that there was an infection inside the tooth under the crown ( he said the tooth was split via xray ) but as he took the tooth out he said it had infection of it and gave me antibiotics
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?
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 n tn I have had a crown on my tooth for about 10yrs which has recently got an abscess. My dentist has put me on antibiotics as expected but has said i need the tooth extracting. He has given me this as the only option with out taking an x-ray. Is there more that can be done to save the tooth/crown? Should i get a second opinion?
Avatar n tn I have an abscess that developed at the root underneath the crown. My options another root canal, pull tooth, c how infection clears depending how severe or a little bit more drilling if tooth is decayed. I hope this puts your thoughts at ease. My apt is today. I'll let know how it turned out.
Avatar m tn Now I have an abscess on my gum and jaw adjacent to that tooth. I have made an appointment to see a specialist but it will take 2 weeks to be seen. Should I try to get an emergency appointment to get some antibiotics going or should I just wait and see if the abscess doesn't get any worse? Also, why did thhis happen when I had a root canal in the first place?
Avatar f tn He said a upper tooth on that side showed infection and it had already had a root canal and crown, so he retreated the tooth. He said the tooth smelled horrible while he was cleaning it out. He wasn't going to put me on antibiotics but I kind of insisted. It has been several weeks and the nodes in my neck are still swollen and now the ones under my jaw are swelling up and I have stiffness at the base of the back of my head and neck..
Avatar f tn Hello, I have an abscess that I have been told was a root canal that needs retreatment (great after spending so much $$ on my crown). The Dr can't get me in for three weeks, so my regular dentist gave me Clindamycin 300MG 3X a day. I have been taking it for four days. Since then my check has gone from no swelling to so swollen I can hardly open my mouth. The pain at the site of the tooth is gone but there is still a lot of pressure above the tooth (#14). What do you think may be going on?
Avatar m tn My guess is that you had an infection inside your tooth and when the bacteria spread into the pulp where the nerve and blood supply are at, it causes pain and as it traveled down into the jawbone, it spread out and created an abscess. Now you took the antibiotics and it helped with the abscess but unfortunately there's no blood flow or very little into the pulp due to the bacteria and so the bacteria still remains.
