Abscess wisdom teeth

Common Questions and Answers about Abscess wisdom teeth


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 m tn None of my fiance's wisdom teeth are impacted, but one of them is partially erupted, and he got some food caught between the tooth and gum, which led to an infection. It was minor, according to his dentist (I asked if it could be life threatening and she laughed), and she said there was a very small abscess which went away. He took penicillin and did topical antimicrobial and he says he feels totally fine now. (he never had a fever or swollen lymph nodes- just some swelling at the gum).
198506 tn?1251156915 I have very large teeth, I still have my wisdom teeth. When I went in (about 10 years ago) to have my abscess treated I was told that I needed to have my wisdom teeth pulled since my mouth was overly crowded and if I did not then I would continue to have problems with abscesses and pain. I did not follow through and have been abscess free with only occassional pain from time to time.
Avatar m tn Thanks Doctor Tsang, It has been about 6 months since my last dental checkup. My wisdom teeth have all been removed.
Avatar n tn it is swollen and I can feel the tension when I bite down from my teeth on top. My wisdom tooth is the one in front of the white patch. My wisdom tooth is pulled to the front from my braces after losing a tooth from a previous accident. Thank you for your help. Btw I just went to the dentist for a clean literally two days ago and dentist said my teeth are fine. Swollen gums started today. http://tinypic.
Avatar f tn I am having surgery tomorrow to get them extracted, however I am scared that the wisdom teeth may not be the cause of the daily migraines I have been enduring. Is it possible for wisdom teeth to cause that much pain? Also, is it normal for an oral surgeon to extract a wisdom tooth while infected without antibiotic treatment first? What are the complications and/or possibilities of this?
1842266 tn?1318860459 t work so dentist is also outa da q...I gt a wisdom tooth that broken 2 the gum and other teeth are all broken...my symtoms I gt were fever yesterday pains in temple area dizzyness I also developed a lump in my neck last year after I quit smoking...I'm having my 2 teeth extracted friday the wisdom tooth and 1 molar...oh will the infection go away if all my teeth are extracted?
Avatar m tn Okay, so I found out that it was an early stage abscess. I've had the first stage root canal done. Meaning the dentist just drilled out the pulp and filled it with temp filling. He said my abscess should go away by itself. It's been a week and the abscess has not gone down at all. Should I be worried? I have another appointment in a few days. Just wondering since my dentist doesn't seem to like telling me things. And he doesn't seem to really care for that matter.
Avatar f tn Hello again. It's been 4 days... I'm still having strange headaches, but I am also now having pain on one side where an upper wisdom tooth was extracted and an upper pre-molar. I went in today, but only saw a dental assistant. He flushed them all, and put a clove paste on the 3 wisdom teeth. I still can't eat regular foods, b/c it all gets stuck in my teeth... And I can't see the upper wisdom teeth holes bc they were turned towards my cheek... Ugh...
Avatar n tn Do you still have your wisdom teeth? When mine went as a teenager, that's what happened.
Avatar n tn Sounds like an infection. Would it be wisdom teeth problem ?
Avatar n tn I had my two top wisdom teeth pulled over 12 years ago and I still have a gaping hole where one of teeth used to be, I have been back to the dentist numerous times over the years because I think it gets infected. It starts to hurt really bad, then there is a blister type thing that fills the hole and eventually it goes down, but then my jaw will hurt for a week or so and I won't be able to open my mouth all the way no matter what I do.
Avatar n tn It is in the same general area of the two upper teeth that I need crowned. I have had those teeth X-rayed, and there was no abscess. I had a hole in my heart closed in august 2009 and I take preventative antibiotics for all my dental work because of risk of infection. I have been having these kinds of symptoms since November 2009. 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.
Avatar f tn YES do go to the dentist. i had an abscess with my daughter and it got so bad it was almost unbearable. 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 m tn Probably a viral infection. I recently had a hiv fear although i used protection. My sixth week(actually five weeks, 6 days 12 hours to be precise) elissa fourth gen test came out negative. I'm a little sure that it can't be because of hiv. I have a wisdom tooth on my left side that is causing a tooth to decay. I got dental abscess about a month back. I didn't treat the dental abscess. This sore throat is pretty annoying.
Avatar m tn If you feel them then u need to check ur teeth for abscess formation, periodontal pockets or wisdom tooth infection.
Avatar n tn i have a white bump bymy wisdom teeth and my dentist said i have to get my wisdoms removed..but the other day this bumpcame and its painful to touch and i also woke up and could hardly swallow what is it?
Avatar f tn I have already had all my wisdom teeth pulled. Sometimes the pain is also referred to my lower jaw. I did have a cold and fever a few weeks ago and just finished a course of antibiotics. The pain has gotten worse today and I've gotten a headache and earace because of the pain. Please help.
Avatar n tn 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 f tn I would get fillings, then pulled all 4 my wisdom teeth, because they were the first to start chipping away, and then it went from filling cavities to crowns, then root canals until just last yr having 7 teeth pulled. I've lost a lot of teeth and have spent a lot of money on expensive dentures to fill in what teeth I have lost. Anyways, it all started from the medication I was taking and if I had known that at 24, I would of stopped the medication then.
Avatar f tn Hello. I would like to ask if somebody got a teeth extraction during 2nd trimester of pregnancy and the baby turned out fine? The thought alone of having my decayed wisdom tooth to be extracted on my 2nd trimester frets me. My dentist's original plan was just to put up a temporary filling but when she drilled the tooth she found out that it was worse than expected ( no wonder it hurts really bad even before the procedure)!
Avatar m tn I am a 20 year old female who had her two wisdom teeth on the left side removed approximately a year ago, and ever since then my lymph node has been swollen. For the most part I can ignore the swelling, as it doesn't hurt, but once in a while I will get swallowing pains on my left side and that's when I can really feel my lymph node throb. For a while I had an abscess at the extraction site, but that was drained and no reason was given as to why it was there.
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 are your wisdom teeth coming through,when my were coming through the root of the tooth was growing into my ear drum,giving me intense pain,i had an x ray and then had it removed in hospital
