Abscess tooth with crown

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess tooth with crown

abscess

Avatar n tn Sometimes just the process of getting a crown prep done is enough to cause a tooth to die. Some people are more prone to this happening, so maybe that's the case with you.
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 f tn I believe Crown failures are common after 5 -15 years, simply because bacteria will get inside of the crown and have a field day with your tooth, all the while the bacteria are protected from removal, hidden by the crown. Many Dentists does not communicate this reality when they sell you on getting the crown. An Endodontics can do the root canal without removing the crown, they just drill through the crown, do the root canal and seal entry of the crown. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn I have had my nerve took out of my tooth and my dentist put a crown. Over it and a couple of months later its really sore but i dont know if its sore because i have an abscess or if i need to get my tooth checked out again 1.Te dentist gave me amoxicillin capsules but how long does it take for them to work . 2. The lept part of my upper lip has swollen and my left side ear hurts aswell as the left side of the neck ?
Avatar f tn The only possible reason for this abscess that I can think of is that about a year ago, my front tooth got the corner chipped off. Please respond asap... I am a worrier!! This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/652619'>dental abscess</a>.
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 n tn I am sure he will do everything he can to save the tooth. I am in your situation with broken teeth, infection and pain medicine. Its not fun. I would say from experience until the infection is cleared up some they may not attempt any procedures.... it just depends on how infected the tooth is... good luck! I hope everything goes well for you...

Avatar n tn 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 n tn The new dentist said that the cause of the infection was from a a defective crown and bad post. The dentist did not shape the crown correctly. It was too high giving me an incorrect bite. The post (screw) was not lodged deep enough in my jaw therefore leaving a large space for area for bacteria to grow and multiply. As a result I had an abscess in my jaw with severe pain. The bacteria started eating away at my jawbone.
Avatar m tn 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. My question is twofold after 2 weeks i(btw the 'clot' is in place over the hole') should my lips and jaw be swollen and should my LVI crown be missisfitting? LVI uses light to bond crowns - this dentist used a glue to re-bond my crown I am concerned that I may have an infection with the glue they used.
Avatar f tn After doing more research, I realized the symptoms I'm having are more consistent with a problem with the gums than with the tooth. To test this, I took a q-tip and placed it in ice water and applied it to the bottom side of the tooth and I felt absolutely nothing. What is the remedy for this type of situation other than a root canal. Please help me. I am devastated at this point at the series of events I've experienced in the last six months.
Avatar m tn Hi, I had crown done following the root canal treatment on 14th tooth 3 years ago due to a regular recurring abscess. After the root canal treatment and crown, i used to get abscess at exactly the same location every now and then but that time with no pain. A month ago the abscess recurred again after a long while, so i went to a dentist (a different this time since i have moved places). He suggested that the previous root canal was not done properly and that the crown had to be removed.
Avatar n tn I have an appointment in six days to have the tooth treated, probably with a root canal (though whatever needs to be done at that point, will be done). I've talked to the dentist over the phone, but haven't been seen by a dentist so far. If I can save the cost of a visit, I want to do that---the root canal and crown will be expensive enough. My question is: can I just continue to take the antibiotic, and get the tooth treated in six days?
Avatar n tn I had a bunch a cavities filled, scaling, root planning, preventative root canal (tooth was not abscessed) with crown. I still need 2 crowns upper right, and one crown lower right with a few more cavities filled. My dentist says there is no signs of dental abscess, but I have been having a lot of bad symptoms that seem to be getting worse. I feel really ill all the time. All my teeth hurt, It comes, and goes for what seems like no reason at all. My face feels tight, and puffy sometimes.

Avatar n tn I have an abscess that developed at the root underneath the crown. My options another root canal, pull tooth, c how infection clears depending how severe or a little bit more drilling if tooth is decayed. I hope this puts your thoughts at ease. My apt is today. I'll let know how it turned out.
Avatar m tn Now I have an abscess on my gum and jaw adjacent to that tooth. I have made an appointment to see a specialist but it will take 2 weeks to be seen. Should I try to get an emergency appointment to get some antibiotics going or should I just wait and see if the abscess doesn't get any worse? Also, why did thhis happen when I had a root canal in the first place?
Avatar f tn He said a upper tooth on that side showed infection and it had already had a root canal and crown, so he retreated the tooth. He said the tooth smelled horrible while he was cleaning it out. He wasn't going to put me on antibiotics but I kind of insisted. It has been several weeks and the nodes in my neck are still swollen and now the ones under my jaw are swelling up and I have stiffness at the base of the back of my head and neck..
Avatar f tn Anytime there's problems with opening the mouth is a cause of concern cause it means the muscles may be pinched by the abscess. If you have any problems with breathing or swallowing, I'd strongly recommend going to the ER and switching antibiotics.
Avatar m tn My guess is that you had an infection inside your tooth and when the bacteria spread into the pulp where the nerve and blood supply are at, it causes pain and as it traveled down into the jawbone, it spread out and created an abscess. Now you took the antibiotics and it helped with the abscess but unfortunately there's no blood flow or very little into the pulp due to the bacteria and so the bacteria still remains.
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 m tn She prepped the tooth for the crown and said that due to this problem with the temp filling and the fact that the hole went close to the root cavity I may need RCT. Since I was not in pain and there was nothing evident on the x-ray, she said she would put temp crown on and when perm crown came in she would put it on with temp cement for a few months to see if there was a problem. The temp crown was fine for a few days, except the bite was too high.
Avatar f tn I had my permanent crown yesterday and I can' t chew anything with the crowned tooth. Its really painfull. The more pressure added worsen the pain. What is going on. No swelling on the gums, Mild pain just by touching with my tongue. No sensitivety with hot or cold. It just hurt bad with pressure. Its a weekend and my dentist office is close. I need a little help through the weekend. This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/421770'>Pain after Crown...HELP!
Avatar n tn Horizontal fracture can be detected from x-ray. Initial vertical fracture can not be seen from x-ray. The abscess of tooth #29 may come from fracure, periodontal infectrion, or periapical infection. Cord packing and impression procedure is not likely to cause infection.
Avatar m tn After flossing also woke up with my crown top back left above sensitive at tapping once again. I did some good cleaning of my teeth and switch my mouth with H. peroxide diluted with water. Also had the old Antibiotics that the Dr changed on me still with me and start it to take CEPHALEXIN 500 MG. Next day after taking it, the pain when tapping on my crown went away but then sensitive again in the back area above the gum and near the sinus.
