Abscess tooth pain relief

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess tooth pain relief


Avatar n tn I know your post is older so I hope you found relief. This type of dental pain is the worst pain ever my dentist had no concept or caring of my pain level and said he would get me in his office within the next week. Within the next week! After my throat started swelling I was afraid of Sepsis is when I decided to go to ER. I wish the ER doctor would have been more thorough. They look at dental pain as non medical but pain and possible death is very medical and serious.
Avatar f tn Ive been on cephalexin for a bit more then 24 hrs now but the swelling and pain has not subsided at all. So my question is, when can i expect relief??? And is it because of me that my dentist couldn't remove the teeth? He said that he couldn't extract them because I was too nervous and basically he 'couldn't do his job'. ( I shake bad and cry in the dentist chair and I can't help it) Or should I find a new dentist? Id rather not see any dentist... ever.
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 f tn 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 f tn the pain and risk of using again is not worth the small amt of relief the pills may give u for the tooth pain..
Avatar n tn The healing process seems to be going fine, however, I'm concerned because the dentist didn't prescribe me with any antibiotics. I thought this was standard procedure when you get a tooth extracted because of an abscess? I'm concerned that he didn't clean out the wound and the abscessed area well enough and that I don't have any antibiotics to ensure that I don't get an infection. What are the symptoms of an infection from where a tooth was extracted?
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 n tn Antibiotics should help the pain, though, after about 3-4 days from the abscess (if that is what it is) -- or at least I always have felt significant pain relief after taking antibiotics when caused by an abscessed tooth. Good luck in finding a diagnosis.
Avatar n tn TMJ specialists wouldn't see her for 3-4 weeks so we took her to a chiropractor instead for pain relief. It helped a bit. The next few weeks she had difficulty breathing. We took her to the doctor and was prescribed Advair.(she is already using Albuterol for her exercise-induced athsma. A few weeks later she passed out twice. So we brought her in again and the doctor found an abscess in her mouth and the tooth that hurt her in August was a bit grey.
Avatar f tn I had a tooth extracted two weeks ago, following a painful abscess. Antibiotics cleared up the infection but my dentist decided the tooth should be removed. It was a bottom tooth, second from the last one at the back. It has been healing up very well and generally I have no pain. However, I've noticed that when I exercise (I go to Zumba) I sometimes get a throbbing from where the tooth used to be and wondered if this is normal?
Avatar f tn Do you know what I can do to stop the pain? Also should I have a root canal or should I have my tooth extracted? It is very painful and my lip is trembling. I'm pretty sure there is also an abcess below the tooth. The tooth is permanent. It is also loose. I can see that there is black on it. If I put any pressure, it hurts a lot.
Avatar n tn It finally did make itself known and i had to go to an oral surgeon to have it removed. Again, its never been 100% pain free since. Skip back to a month ago. I felt the pressure building, assumed it was sinus. Put out an all assault effort on my sinuses and found some relief off and on. Went on a road trip and slowly it got worse and by the time we hit altitude over 4000 ft it got almost unbearable. It almost felt like labor pains of the face. It would come on sudden, and leave sudden.
Avatar n tn It aches on and off during the day and night (i live on ibuprofen to help dull the pain). The crowned tooth and now even the surrounding teeth are sensitive to hot/cold and bitter/sweet. Teeth around the crown have shifted and are our of alignment. If I rinse with salt water, it hurts. It is soooo sensitive. What could be wrong?
Avatar m tn So Thursday Dec 24 I woke up with a horrible tooth ache and as the day went on it only got worse. When I woke up Friday I was still in pain so i called the dentist and he put me on the antibiotic azithromycin because i cant have amoxocillan because i am allergic to pinacillan. well i started my first dose of it that afternoon and was still having alot of pain abnd by the end of the night my face started to swell.
Avatar f tn After tooth was extracted, the pain is more in waves (constant) but i can bend over and kiss my daugther goodnight now without cringing in pain! So, the extraction did bring some relief, i guess. I thought maybe the infection in the tooth was pushing up causing some irritation to that nerve, but Oral Surgeon doesn't seem to think so. He says that it could be residual pain from the tooth... I am so sick of being told what it "could be"!
Avatar f tn In the meantime gargle with salty water and take pain relief as directed on the packet for your age group. Let me know how you get on. Best of luck.
Avatar n tn for a couple months, and I experienced and on and off low grade fever for many months as well. But then after a few months I had extremely severe pain form between the tooth and my maxillary sinus on that side, and then pain back to my jaw, and below my jaw down my neck with swollen lymph nodes. Plus when I bite down that tooth and only that tooth hurts.
Avatar n tn I have had relief and only have slight pain now. I have made it a point to use my waterpik every night since I started the antibiotics with special attention to this area. My questions are...how long should I continue the antibiotics?, this being my sixth night and still having slight pain....and, once it is cleared up, should I still go in for a deep cleaning or only a cleaning? Seems like the cipro is working well, but is it a good antibiotic for this type of infection?...
Avatar n tn HI, Repeated episodes raise the possibility of chronic infection and possibly a tooth abscess. You should consult a dentist for an evaluation. Antibiotics and anti-inflammatory agents will help tide over the problem. Application of ice packs will also help. It is best to defer tooth extraction till after the delivery of the baby. Hope this helps. The answer is based on information provided. Exact advice is not possible without a proper examination and investigations.
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 m tn May 15 I developed an abscess. They can't get me in to get the 2 teeth pulled until June 25th. The next day, my cheek was the size of a baseball and the meds weren't helping. I went to th ER. Dr numbed it, cut a slit in it, gave me dilaudid &zophran, &sent me home with vicodin. RELIEF! June 3 it was back. I went to the dentist June 5. He couldn't see me. They called in 825mg amoxicillin 2x a day &the weakest dose of vicodin.
Avatar n tn I had an abscessed tooth removed after being on antibiotics for one week, my jaw was a bit swollen before he removed the tooth the swelling had not gone down with the antibiotics. There was an awful smell which he said was the abscess. I am taking amoxcillin at the moment and it now 8 days since the extraction but my jaw is still swollen the same as it was before the extraction, is this normal should the swelling be going down by now, it is not really painful.
Avatar n tn i have a pain on my tooth at the back because it has a hole so i dont know if its the hole thats painful or my tooth,pls help i dnt know what to do and i dnt want it to harm my baby....
Avatar f tn I had an absess on an upper tooth years ago, and this pain is not like that at all. The absess was a deep, terrible, throbbing pain. This almost feel more like a pin stuck into it. If I didn't know better, I would think there was a sliver of bone growing out of my tooth root and digging into my gum. Ambesol gives me some relief, as does pulling my lip away from the gum so that there is nothing touching it.
