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.

Avatar f tn i am having a rear upper tooth extracted tomorrow - the pain will be slightly less than I have had over the last two weeks - this has been flaring up and down since February, but the last episode meant that I looked like I had a golf ball tucked in my cheek - my left nostril was numb, my head was too sore to brush my hair or touch, my neck hurt when I moved my head, my ear was crackling - the nhs dentist refused to drain the abscess but gave me antibiotics, these didnt work and I had another cou
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 He then did a percussion test, tapping firmly on all surfaces of the tooth, and I had no pain. So he recommended using Peroxyl to help the gum heal, and just watching to see if the tooth got worse. Well, the gum healed and the foul taste disappeared. No more throbbing. But the sensitivity to hot and cold has steadily worsened. Now hot or cold food or fluids causes a fair amount of discomfort.
Avatar m tn I had a cracked tooth,I waited and put off something being done about it,and it became abscess,a pocket formed underneath it and also my jaw swelled up an I believe became infected, I went to the doctor, they numbed and drained the pocket,and gave me 2 antibiotics and a pain med, I'm no longer in pain (the cracked tooth is a little loose) but its been going on 3 days of antis and no change has occurred, is that normal? should I go back to the doctor?
Avatar f tn I don't have a lot of pain but the swelling is looking bad, the tooth shattered about six months ago and I used salt on it to kill the pain right now I am taking advil alieve and kefltex I slept with a tea bag with garlic and mint oils inside my jaw Im trying everything I can find and I don't know how to get the swelling to go down any advice?
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 I don't no wot causes it but my I'm in pain. I was told to get bicarbonate soda mix into a paste spread it on covering the abscess an it will draw it. did tht it's still thr. so much pain this is my 2nd one I've had since being pregnant but I've had 2 at one time. hurts like he'll get shooting pains threw it too jesus I could scream with it ladies kills too touch it.
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?
Avatar f tn I am a 24 yr old female and recently had a tooth abscess that I took care of with 2 different antibiotics (Clyndmiacin and cephelexin). I went to the ER and got the abscess lanced to relieve some of the pressure. I went to my dentist and received a partial root canal. I am feeling no pain in my mouth and the swelling is all gone. Now I'm not sure if the infection is in my heart.
Avatar m tn 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. I have a dentist appointment but it is still a week away, should I start seeking out a different dentist to get in sooner or just wait patiently? thank you.
Avatar f tn After, you should feel no pain, and the only discomfort you might feel would be from the healing bone where the body is still fighting the infection outside the tooth. If your tooth is mostly intact, there is no reason the dentist would need to remove it. How did you chip your tooth? How much of the tooth was chipped off?
Avatar f tn i too had an abscess,my tooth had to be extracted(it was the tooth that already had root canal treatment,i had cracked it) and was on 3 different antibiotics.it took me just over 2weeks to heal.
Avatar n tn they might get in and find the tooth is in need of pulling in my case I had no pain the tooth at all.
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 f tn I've had a tooth abscess since the beginning of this year sometime. I went to the ER because my jaw had become so swollen that it was completely ridiculous. They gave me penicillin which I took (28 pills, 3 times a day with food). When I finished that bottle I realized that there was still a sort of blister on my gum even though it was much smaller than it used to be.
Avatar m tn Keeping in mind, I have a tooth on the other side that is chipped and filling came out ( no pain or issues) and after cancer treatments that one will be fixed since the chip is above the gumline.
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 I have a tooth abscess on a tooth that is badly chipped/broken and has a major cavity. It's sort of like 1/4 of the tooth is gone and you can feel the gum in that spot. I saw my dentist 4 days ago and was given pencillin, and ibuprofen and vicodin for pain to rid the infection to have it treated. They are closed on weekends, so I haven't tried to call but am not sure if I should seek out some urgent care.
Avatar m tn i live in pain for the past 28 years of my life... Two days ago a tooth that has been cracked for about 6 months developed an abscess.. i got the routine pain along with a bit of swelling, however no bubble in the gum line.. I woke up yesterday with a bit of swelling in the cheek, and put myself on amoxicillin which i have plenty left from previous incidents.. Normally when i have an abscess, i'll switch between amoxicillin and penicillin to keep my body from adapting to either type of med.
Avatar n tn I called endodontis in the morning and he retreated the tooth. I look like a chipmunk now but NO PAIN:). Well my question are: 1.Why it started to hurt now??? Did I do something to agitate it? This abscess was visible on pano that was taken in Febr. 2.Is there any home remedies for swelling? Thank YOU!
Avatar n tn I also rinse with salt water and mouthwash aside from regular brushing. I am very pain tolerant so it's no trouble in do this. I just wanted to make sure I am not causing further problem.
Avatar f tn I have been cleaning it regularly with salt water and the pain is not in tooth, but mostly in the gum/cheek area above the back molar. I went to see the dentist (I am staying in Bahrain to visit my dad who works here, and went to a dentist here). The dentist, in my opinion, wasn't very good, and told me that I needed a root canal (Duh), and to take an anti-inflammatory, (duh again). He said i didn't need antibiotics as the infection wasn't that big and my body would fight it off.
Avatar m tn I had a bad tooth ache and have been told all my life that dentists are far too expensive to go to without insurance to pay for them. The tooth pain got so bad I had no choice. 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 n tn Also, as a note, sometimes these infection of the tooth can result in severe tooth pain or sometimes no pain at all. If the pulp becomes necrotic and the tissue dies, there's no nerve to indicate any pain. Sometimes patients will experience pain if they bite down on the tooth and the periodontium (ligament again) moves, then it'll send feedback of pain. Hope that helps.
