Avatar m tn I have an abscess on the roof of my mouth from a bad wisdom tooth and been on antibiotics for 3 days now and it's only gotten bigger when will it eventually go down
Avatar m tn My wisdom teeth have been coming in for a year now and my wisdom on the bottom left hurts really bad and there is a bump that formed over night on the gums next to my wisdom tooth. What is it?
Avatar n tn Well I had my wisdom tooth pulled on Monday.It had to be the worst experience.After 2 1/2 hrs of grinding,pulling,pushing and cutting,the doctor gave up and had to send me to someone else.My appt was at 9:00 and I left at 12:30.The next dentist couldn't get me in until 3:00.By the time I got to that appt all the numbing shots wore off and they had to numb me all over again.That dentist took another 1 1/2 hours to get it out.
Avatar n tn He said that he's got a tooth abscess in a healthy tooth and that the tooth should be extracted. He said it is unusual in cats and that they don't know the cause. He also suggested some antibiotics for a few days before the surgery to help with the infection. Just wondering if it is worth trying to save the tooth. Go through the course of antibiotics and see if he gets better. My vet made me feel like I was just being cheap and that conventional wisdom is to just remove the tooth.
Avatar n tn Could this be an abscess or root infection? I have a dentist apoointment, but i thought a tooth abscess would cause severe swelling, and there does not seem to be any swelling, just the sore and pain that seems to be in the root of the tooth. Any help would be appreciated.
Avatar f tn My dentist did an oral exam and full set of x-rays along with my jaw x-ray and he said that my upper right wisdom tooth is rotten, (it's black and looks real nasty) and needs to be removed by an oral surgeon. I said no way because it doesn't hurt and I don't even know it's there......do I really need to have it removed? Thanks!

Avatar n tn I have an impacted wisdom tooth. Its been about a week of horrible pain. My neck and face hurt. I think it might be infected. it is after hours to contact a dentist. should i go to ER for help? what will they do?
Avatar n tn Recently I visited my dentist because I was experiencing extreme pain in my mouth. They told me my upper left wisdom tooth was infected and prescribed me a prescription for an antibiotic and ibuprofen to help with the discomfort, as well as referring me to an oral surgeon. I have an appointment in three days with the oral surgeon for an exam (Its been two weeks already) but I have the feeling my tooth is still infected even after taking the antibiotic.

Avatar f tn an oral surgeon, got different opinions, but a common ground answer was that it is probably my wisdom tooth that is causing all this & a less doubt that the molar with the root canal may need to be re-treated again.
Avatar n tn my lymph glands are also touchy on that side only. the wisdom tooth is raised and swollen, but i have no fever, chills, or nausea. could the wisdom tooth have caused a break in my jaw bone, or eaten away at the jaw bone itself and how much immediate danger could be involved in this condition? i am aware that i need to seek treatment from an oral surgeon, but cannot afford to do so at this time.
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 Hi! I'm brand new to this website & forum, but I was researching this issue for a friend of mine just last night. Sounds like you have an abscess forming thus the "white bump". The tooth itself will have to be taken care of eventually but the abscess is an infection that needs to be taken care of NOW. Any dr/er/dds can prescribe you a round of antibiotics, which will help with the pain and inflammation alot.
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 f tn 30weeks prwgnant and my wisdom tooth is playing up. I was suppose to remove it before i got pregnant but i couldnt and the pain went away. All of a sudden noe its back 3 days its still under the gum but can see some tooth.
Avatar n tn But your pain sounds severe and could be dangerous if there is an abscess that spreads from the wisdom tooth area to other places of the head/neck area.
Avatar m tn but agian the pain subsided. Then a few days ago it felt like there was food stuck between my gum and wisdom tooth i felt back there and i could feel like a mushy blister above my wisdom tooth. i looked at it and it was white and raised. i felt around and pressed on it and the best thing i can say it poped and leaked this disgusting blood and clear liquid into my mouth i kept pushing on it until it stopped bleeding.
Avatar f tn My ears nose throat Doctor saw me before I had a tooth abscess and gave me Rx “for any hidden bacteria in mouth” I kept the bottle for a few weeks, but held off on taking it. Then the other night I woke up with part of my gum swollen into a ball on top of my wisdom tooth. Will the Rx the ENT gave me get rid of this infection? It is Amoxicillin and Clavulanate Potassium tablets, USP 875mg/125Mg. 20 tablets take ten days two times a day. What do you think?
Avatar n tn on day 6 of my antibiotics and have 1 day left to go till they are finished but i am still in pain.
Avatar n tn He then decided to take an xray to see what was going on with the tooth and discovered that it was actually a wisdom tooth. He had already worked on my teeth for about 2-2/3 hours and told me to come back in about 2 weeks to give my mouth a rest and he would finish the job. When I came back, he worked on the tooth again and I still experienced pain even after he stuck me everywhere he could with the novocaine. He finished the job with pain.
Avatar f tn I had my lower right wisdom tooth taken out on approximately 2 weeks ago. The flap is healed, the stitches have fallen out or dissolved, and there is no pain in the area. However, my cheek (on my jawline) is still swollen and puffy (not hard, just puffy), as are the gums around the extraction site and the tooth adjacent to the extraction site. When I brush around the wound, the wound itself does not bleed, but the gums beside it do bleed (minimally) and I'm scared.
Avatar f tn Several months ago I noticed my back left wisdom tooth had a needle-like jagged edge. I wasn't sure whether it was still coming in strange (I have another that never fully emerged) or if it was rotting. There is no pain, and no bad taste. I don't have insurance and (unwisely) didn't do anything about it. Yesterday I noticed the tooth seems to have changed in shape by feeling it with my tongue. I'm pretty sure it is decaying, even though there is no pain.
Avatar n tn He mention a air abscess, cracked root, but as swollen as it was, why is it hard to tell what is going on? I'm wondering can there be some sort of opening from that old wisdom tooth extraction site that is causing this and isnt being seen on xrays? I feel like a hypochondriac again. I really expected to see a big ole abscess.. There is nothing wrong with my sinuses. In my life time i've only blown my nose 3 times.
