Abscess tooth pulled

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess tooth pulled


Avatar f tn I had a tooth pulled out on the 19/05/15, this tooth had a abscess for around 12 - 13 years, other dentists seemed very reluctant to pull the tooth. What I wanted to ask is, how long should it take before the swelling goes down or will it even go down with it being a very old abscess? I was thinking it may just take time because I think it affected the area either side of it as well. The dentist didn't give me any antibiotics but I'm assuming that's because she pulled the tooth out.
Avatar f tn I have an abscess; upper right; the tooth broke off only some left close to the gums. My cheek is swollen near right side of nose and mouth and up under my right eye; very bad pain. Dentist put me on penicillin. My question is can they pull the tooth out while I am swollen? and how bad will it feel when they pull it? I have a fear of dentist and I will get it pulled out because I am more worried about the infection spreading to my brain ect..
Avatar f tn they only thing to get rid of the abscess is to take antibiotics to get rid of the infection and after baby is born they may have to do a root canal or pull tooth all together. mine had to be pulled out. but definitely get it checked out i was told by my dentist that it can get bad enough and get into your blood stream...
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 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. My dentist scheduled me an appointment to have the tooth pulled next Friday but since taking the antibiotics the whole left side of my face is extremely swollen my lips are severely swollen to the point I can't eat can barely drink and can't sleep.
1629677 tn?1299659204 I had a wisdom tooth pulled and the night I had it pulled my cheeck was the size of a tennis ball, I went to the ER 3 days later and they said I had an abscess, im on antibiotics and I want to know if that will take the swelling away and if thats all I have to do or will I have to get it drained?
Avatar m tn I went to the dentist today and they pulled the root they said that it was most likely the cause of the abscess and after an hour and a half in the chair they finally pulled the roots. 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.
Avatar f tn I didn't have a dime to my name when i was 16 and i had my first abscess...i went to a low income facility and showed them i didn't have anything but i needed my tooth gone. They said it would cost me $50 and i sat in front of a gas station and bummed money until i had enough and went back and got it pulled. Also, if it hurts, take an aspirin and break it in pieces...put a small piece in your tooth. It kills the root but at this point, who cares. It will take away A LOT of the pain.

6397765 tn?1380938251 How difficult was the extraction? It may take some time to completely heal but the pulse pain should be getting better at least. I'm assuming once the tooth was removed, the majority of pain/symptoms were gone?
Avatar f tn I lost a filling a few years back. Food woud get caught between the two teeth so I avoided chewing on that side since that's the only time it really hurt. Over a year ago I noticed a lump in my jaw, under where the tooth was. But I never really had a toothache, maybe just a couple times and very short lived, like a couple hours. Is that "normal"? I had the tooth pulled yesterday. The dentist said that now that the tooth is gone, the lump will go away too.
Avatar n tn I was in the EXACT same position yesterday that you were and the dentist pulled my abscessed tooth. The dentist WILL pull the tooth if it is an emergency situation so you dont have to be completely rid of the infection for them to pull it. The reason they dont is because it takes a LOT to get you numbed up on local anesthetic before they do pull it. The most painful part for me was when they numbed me up and drained the abscess.
Avatar n tn i posted before. i had an abscessed tooth and the abscess spread into my cheek. my dentist put me on keflex but after 10 days there was still noticable swelling in my cheek. so now the dentist has put me on a stronger antibiotic. when i woke up this morning i felt a very large "bubble" on my inside cheek.
Avatar m tn The following day I visited a near by dentist who extracted this tooth (swelling was up to my left eye and I was having problems breathing) dentist showed me the scan-nearby teeth were not infected however...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.
Avatar n tn he's saying I need to get this tooth pulled out along with my #13 tooth which was root canaled by the same doc who did the apicoectomy. He's saying both of the root canals were done poorly which resulted infection and can't be saved. Should I see an endondonist and try to save both teeth or just have them extracted...
Avatar f tn I have an abscess tooth and I have a dental pick and I've been trying to keep the infection under control I recently pulled out something orange and stringy this is concerning to me anybody know what it may be
Avatar m tn Am I gonna have to get the tooth pulled out?!!? Or root canal?!!??! or something worse?!??! I'm currently a college student and does not have dental insurance. what do i do? help i'm freaking out.
Avatar n tn No, due to infection that is already going on. Also, novacaine will have no affect on an abcessed tooth, you would have to be put to sleep. Dentist normally won't pull abcessed teeth, instead they put you on antibiotics for 7-10 days and then pull the teeth.
Avatar f tn I have a painful abscess tooth leading to tooth aches! I need to see a dentist but until then what can i do to soothe the pain for now?
Avatar n tn I know, I've had a problem with an abscessed tooth for about 3 months now. Even with antibiotics, if he does not get that tooth pulled, the abscess will come back again. An abscess is an infection in the gums. I would assume that it could possibly develop into all sorts of other problems. Gum disease can affect heart health as well. Please get him to seek help.
4264082 tn?1351907351 Hi there, I can confirm whether his abscess is healing or not only after a complete clinical examination. Since he has already been taking antibiotics he should be recovering. The complications of untreated abscess are cellulitis which can lead to Ludwig's angina. There can also be osteomyelitis of the jaw in severe cases. See a dentist and get your doubts claraified.Do write to me again. Best luck and regards!
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.
