Healing gum infection naturally

Common Questions and Answers about Healing gum infection naturally


Avatar n tn I had my upper left largest molar (not my wisdom) extracted last week I had felt on going nagging pain and soreness for over a week so visited the dentist today who said it was infected She cleaned the tooth and packed it and has given me antibiotics but i am now paranoid about it not healing. Obviously i will continue to clean my other teeth but is there anything i can do to help keep the infected tooth clean?
Avatar n tn This may sound crazy, but the only time I seem to get a yeast infection is after receiving oral sex. If my boyfriend goes down 3 or 4 nights in a row I start developing one. I was just wondering if anyone else has expierencied this, or knows if there could possibly be something in his mouth causing this. (Obviously I would notice and not let him go there if is something I could see) Any suggestions would be great.
Avatar n tn I had just switched allergy medications, from Nasonex to generic Flonase, right at the time my symptoms returned. Could allergies have led to a sinus infection? Can the sinus infection cause dizziness and fatigue? Due to the holiday weekend I haven't been able to call my doctor, but after 3 prior visits he's never suggested sinuses to be a cause.
Avatar f tn How will I know if my tooth infection spread to my brain or other parts of my body??? Scared... I have a sinus infection and eye infection. Are all of these related??? Saw a dentist and doctor recently. I've had all sorts of symptoms for 2 + months. I'm so scared that I hVe a brain abscess. Please help... Thank you...
Avatar n tn However, because I want to get implants, they are hesitant to perform bone grafts unless the infection is treated and they feel that it can only be successful if all the remaining teeth are extracted. My questions: Are there alternatives in treating infections without removing teeth so bone grafts are successful? Is this the only viable option moving forward to successful implants?
Avatar n tn They called and said I had a VERY bad yeast infection. This time I started feeling similar to the last time. By day 3 I was swollen and red again with mild itching and a white/clear stretchy discharge. I have been with a new partner since Nov. 2005 and these problems have started since then. I seem to be irritated down there almost always after we have sex. Do you think maybe it's his body chemistry that isn't mixing well with my "inside"?

Avatar n tn And no I didn't have any problem healing or with any infection afterwards, but - I went for quite a few visits for the planing and scraping. Actually , it was a huge relief when they finally got all that infection out because it had gone down to the bony structure and so da** painful I really wanted someone to just chop my head off. I had no clue I was that bad off dental-wise, but I was, and when those wbcs went down - whew.

Avatar f tn Clove oil rubbed into the gum where the sore tooth is. Or just a whole clove chew it between the teeth that is sore or next to it. It numbs the pain. I also found swishing warm salty water after eating or drinking lessened the pain a little.
Avatar n tn Did your tooth hurt when you bit down on it after the root canal and before the crown was placed? If so, it might be the infection still healing (although you should not have had the permanent crown placed without this going away first. If not, your crown might be hitting high and needs to be adjusted, As for crown lengthening, its a procedure that was not done a long time ago and older dentists just put crowns in and let things happen.
Avatar m tn ) Anyway, I had no pain or discomfort to begin with, then after a couple of days the site naturally got a bit sore, particularly the gum and skin around the tooth in front and between the gum and my cheek, so sore I could no longer rinse with salt water.
Avatar m tn ITS BECAUSE OF THE VIRUS STUPID!!! i had severe gum and periodontal problems in my short 4 year HCV infection. my gums used to bleed 24/7 just like that. one summer, i touched my newly developing wisdom tooth a couple of times with my finger. guess what? my cheek becamse infected and i took vibramycin, and it FAILED to kill the infection. then i took CEPHLAXIN, which gave me diarrhea and intense jabbing liver area pain. a few months later, my front top gums filled with pus.

Avatar n tn My wife noticed that every time I started chewing gum I would sneeze. She suggested I stop chewing mint gum for a while. I am a different person now. I went back to the allergist and asked to be tested for mint and we got a positive. The doctor’s comment was “first time in five years that I get a positive to mint.” Well, he may not ever found another case of mint allergy because it is not in his “default” test repertoire, and people don’t even suspect it to request it.
Avatar n tn and started chewing gum again... I think its the CHEWING Gum thats doing it. Think about it, chewing gum causes you to swallow excess air which can make you bloated it also causes gastric juice to forrm. I stopped with the gum and am feeling better agian.

Avatar n tn Hi all, quick question... I seem to be having symptoms of herpes and i'm freaking out! I went to the doctor and she asked me about all the symptoms and at the time all I had was vaginal discharge, painful and frequent urination and also these cuts, or what felt like down there. So she checked me out and said it's most likely a yeast infection. So i took the monistat 3 day and nothing totally improved right after that. So I went back to the doctor and told her that I don't think it's gone away..
Avatar m tn It’s a tiny risk, greater if you are older, overweight, obese, or have reduced blood flow in your neck arteries, but it’s a risk you must assume if you want get rid of an otherwise untreatable sinus infection. There is a possibility that the infection could go into your ear, which happened to me once, but I found a way to avoid it. You could also accidentally rub infected snot into your eye and get an eye infection, if you are careless.
4520139 tn?1355852769 It is very painful for the cat to eat with gum infection or any other teeth problem - teeth extract will not bother cat at all. It sound very drastic and on the beginning I can't bear that I have to do it, however, I will help my cat. Cats after extraction have a normal life. My outdoor cat already had most of back teeth removal and it healed in the couple of days.
Avatar f tn If you do, you're only irritating the gum and making them sore, and possibly letting an infection brew. Same with flossing...be gentle. You need to let your gums heal at bit. If you've been using peroxide you've probably got them pretty well irritated. If your dentist wants to wait and see, give your gums and teeth a rest. The more you do to them at this stage the more likely you can make an infection blossom into an abscess by keeping it stirred up.
Avatar f tn i had the start of a root canal and a bad infection .the infection is gone but the numbness isnt i have heard all the horror stories but does anybody have good news like hey i have feeling again!please give me somthing to make me not feel so nervous about this problem.
Avatar n tn The window period is a tricky subject, and when we consider it, we have to take into account the likelihood that any one person may have contracted HIV from the encounter that has them worried. It may help to think about it in terms of odds, C, because the business of calculating the window period is not an exact science. Let's talk about that first and then go back to the odds discussion.
