Avatar n tn I had my top right 2nd molar abscess wed. 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.

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.
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 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 n tn Since then, this tooth has been hurting me, causing pain to radiate from my tooth to my jaw. It is sensitive - but not overly so - to cold and heat. I went to my dentist and he took an x-ray this week and saw no sign of decay or abscess. What could the problem be?

2093279 tn?1379551553 Death of pulp tissue can lead to serious tooth infection and abscess. The treatment and outcome of your tooth depends on the type, location and extent of crack. The sooner a broken tooth is re-implanted, the chances of embedding itself back into the gum are enhanced. It is best to make an appointment to see your dentist and follow his advice. I sincerely hope that helps. Best of luck and regards!

Avatar f tn Now Day 2 of meds my cheek is swollen. The infection is in #3 tooth upper molar. Btw the tooth is broke.
Avatar f tn I recently lost my health and dental insurance and am currently unemployed with no benefits coming in. Anyhow, my lower left #18 12 yr. molar had been previously root canaled and crowned. 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.
1704045 tn?1307461779 Hello- I have a abscess tooth in my back molar that I will be getting a root canal on but I have to be on antibiotics for a week... My question is does the infection swell up and down while it is being cleared? It is the size of a baseball in my right jawline underneath my chin and it keeps going up and down and the pain is unbearable. Thank you in advance for your response.
317787 tn?1473362051 My jaw is still hurting and I was told it was because they had to cut the gums to get the tooth out. The tooth only came to the gumline, I had lost the crown the day before and the tooth under was very decayed.
Avatar f tn I thought it was a sinus issue. When I woke up Sunday, my neck and under my jaw was swollen and I had severe tooth pain. Went to the ER and was given Clindamycin and Norco. I had #18 molar extracted yesterday. Oral surgeon said it had an abscess. He told me to make sure I complete taking my Clindamycin. I have considerable ear and jaw pain as well as the area of extraction. I'm taking ibuprofen and Norco and continuing antibiotics per instructed.
Avatar m tn I have a dental abscess on upper molar. It has been drained and I am taking antibiotics, but now my lower jaw is starting to hurt. Can this abscess be spreading from upper to lower?
4704700 tn?1358336570 I guess it was recommended to me that the second molar be extracted due to the cyst below it, and due to the fact that the tooth has been through a lot. It's in generally good shape, though -- at least superficially. I have an appointment with my dentist this Friday, so I'll see what he says. Thanks again.
Avatar n tn I had an upper back molar extracted 2 days ago because it had an abscess. It was horribly painful and I made an emergency appointment with a dentist that I didn't entirely trust because I needed some immediate relief. The dentist's office was kind of dirty and a little seedy. The healing process seems to be going fine, however, I'm concerned because the dentist didn't prescribe me with any antibiotics.
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 f tn I purchased the stallion last yr. and was informed he had suffered tooth (molar) abscess/s and as a result had at least one top left molar removed by a veternarian when he was younger. It's been at least 2 yrs. since the extraction. However, the left side bridge of his nose is still swollen or appears to have a rather large bump that I was told was there since the extraction. Sometimes it swells even bigger and other times subsides; but, never goes away.
6780421 tn?1384733927 Hello, Leaving an infected tooth with an abscess untreated can cause lightheadedness. This can occur when the infection spreads into the nerves of the ears which in turn can cause you to become dizzy. Information comes to part of brain from the vestibular system located in the inner ears which help keep the body upright and allow it to move in a coordinated fashion. Vertigo is caused due to dysfunction of the vestibular system. Ear causes are the commonest causes of vertigo.
Avatar n tn I've seen several dentists and they keep telling me that the root canal was performed well but I keep getting an abscess. Yesterday I went to a new dentist to pull out the molar but they did not want to do it. They suggested that I pull out the wisdom tooth which may be causing the pressure, therefore, the infection(since it is pushing all other teeth to the front). Also they did an incision and drained the abscess, they put me on antibiotics, told me to use salt water and pain relievers.
Avatar n tn Hi, I have had a bump on my gum below a previously root canaled tooth for over two months now with no pain. It has drained a couple of times, but not in the last few weeks. In the last few weeks, I had to have my crown recemented because it fell off.
Avatar f tn My tooth (2nd upper molar) cracked over a year a go and i noticed this bump inside the tooth (the inner part of the molar is gone) it's soft and it hasn't really caused any pain. I searched about this and came across dental abscesses, but in the pictures i see, dental abscess grow around the gums where the roots of the tooth are like this http://freedentalcarehelp.com/images/What%20is%20a%20tooth%20abscess.jpg. but mine is inside my molar. i have this huge whole in my molar, and IT'S inside it.
