Common Questions and Answers about How long does it take for a tooth extraction to heal


Avatar f tn I figured that a nerve was bruised but how long does it normally take on average for a nerve to heal? Will this be permanent? Thank you for any feedback or past experiences posted. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/587014'>Bruised nerve due to wisdom tooth extraction</a>.
Avatar m tn Should I be worried ? How will I know if I develop dry socket ? How long does the pain last normally ? It s the worst holidays I ever spent...
Avatar n tn It will probably resolve itself but it make take several months for it to resolve. If its a loose piece of bone, it will be pushed out by the gums. If its a sharp piece of bone sticking out of your jaw, it'll take some time for the body to break it down and smoothen it. If it bothers you, you can have the dentist re-open up the area and smooth down the bone. The surgery is very minor usually. You may want to discuss it with him/her if you feel that it bothers enough to.
Avatar n tn I've just been waiting/hoping to see how #31 developed. In December the surgeon said give it a few months to see how it works out. So he is trying to be conservative in treatment.
611365 tn?1225994623 Really feel bad for you to have to go through such a difficult recovery. It has been a long time but were there more compications later? I hope not. I myself had a number of complications and had 4 wisdoms extracted 4 weeks ago. Some people healed in less than a day and I am still on soft food. I like to hear a good ending so that I can believe that I will too. Thanks.
4520139 tn?1355852769 Was vague about price, but I think it was going to be $50-100 for the extraction of two teeth - said he would give me a minimal charge for the loose tooth which would probably come out easily). Vet was good until it came time for a simple administrative request - letter stating cat is healthy enough to fly in-cabin on upcoming trip.
162948 tn?1205256292 My question is if that is normal once it has been removed and how long does it last. I had it in for over a year but wanted it removed because my husband and I are planning for another baby. So I have one more question, how long could it take to conceive once it is removed? and is it safe to try the first month that it has been removed?
874521 tn?1424120397 As for pain, a local may numb the gumline, but a regional nerve block needs to be done for a tooth extraction and general anesthesia needs to be done to prevent wind up and failure of any other pain control methods as well as to be able to treat any other dental issues that are present. To have just one tooth affected with no other tartar on any other tooth surface is almost impossible. Tartar harbors bateria and that bacteria is really under the gumline.
Avatar n tn He did say a crown will be necessary in the near future but with Easter approaching and I have to fly out to see family so he won't be doing it now. but to make you feel better it will take 3-7 days to heal. I know how it feels!!
Avatar n tn How long does it take for the swelling to heal. I have not applied any ice or heat to the affected area. Also is it safe to brush the area where the tooth was extracted ? He says it is safe but from what I understand I should avoid brushing that area.
Avatar n tn I tried to repost it but the max has been reached for daily postings. How long does a dry socket take to heal? After such relief, it began to hurt again this evening. There is a sharp pain in my ear and that "Dry socket pain" at the site. I went in for the packing on Monday. I called on Tuesday to ask for a dress changing and was told if it didn't hurt, not to worry. The packing would dissolve on it's own. I didn't press it because when I got the packing, it was excruciating.
1197377 tn?1265457850 Please let me know that it will heal or not! what will happen to that missing part of bone? how long does it take to completely cure? and is this event frequent? thank you so much.
784382 tn?1376934640 just the stitches... i was wondering can you tell me how long does dissolving stitches take to dissolve??....
Avatar m tn It can take months for the hole to completely close up and heal. I had my wisdom taken out in December last year and I still get a little food stuck in my sockets from time to time. Its been almost 2 months. You can go back to get it checked out anyways just for your own peace of mind but as long as there's no pain and you can keep the area clean, just let it heal up on its own.
Avatar n tn i had like this for a week and my right side of the jar is still not opening wider does it take more time to heal completly?
Avatar m tn If you are hitting on your temporary crown first before your other teeth, then that could cause your tooth to hurt and feel more bruised. It does take a little while for your tooth to recover from a root canal---depending how bad the infection was, etc. It may just take some time for all to heal.
Avatar f tn I had also brushed really well along teeth and gums first, then chewed the garlic and swished it around the infected tooth area. It burned for a while after I spit it out, then started to feel cool and now I taste the drainage.. which means of course, my infection&#x27;s connected to sinus. But at least it&#x27;s working this time. I hope I can get a dentist soon. Well, hope this helps.
Avatar n tn 3 weeks back I had R/C on Tooth # 3 and was fitted with a same day. This tooth used to have a big metal inlay, started getting excruciating pain, Dr.said abcess, need R/C. Dr.also took mould for Permanent crown and its arrived. After R/C the hot-cold pain sensation and awful pain stopped. But 3 weeks later, I cannot eat on that side. No pain if I just bite together, but with food I get pain. Dentist checked bite, said it was okay.
Avatar m tn Use the h2o pic with warm water and see if you can get some healthy condition prior to going thur with any extractions. YOU WOULD BE shocked how long a wingly tooth can last. Save ALL you can though. Good luck and GOD bless you.(from a patient -not a dentist)p.s apparently a lower denture is the hardest to get used too. The teeth you save will help anchor and stabilize the denture. the dentist can alter the denture to match OR your teeth cosmetically treated to match an overdenture.
Avatar m tn The contrast is quite amazing when open heart surgery is given to patients who have taken their daily dosage of both aspirin/plavix and very often clexane on top. It makes one wonder how they heal.
748543 tn?1463449675 Dentistry has traditionally been a profession guided largely by mechanical concept. It does not have to that way anymore. It is time for the profession to recognize that occlusion and jaw function are governed by physiological processes and diagnose and treat them accordingly.
Avatar n tn Endodontist gave me option of more antibiotics or extraction (I chose antibiotics). What???? No interim step to save this tooth??! This doesnt' seem right. It was explained to me by his assistant that a lesion needs to be present for an apico, which I supposedly don't have; that an apico take 6 mos to 1 yr to develop and that this tooth is not that "severe" yet. Any info on this matter would be appreciated!
Avatar f tn I had to pay $850 for a new crown, but it is a front tooth and I wanted it to look normal. I thought Medicaid paid for dental work if it was a necessity?
Avatar n tn I'm new HERE, but 'been dealing with HCV since 1985. What did Naomi Judd do? I have NO idea, but if she went east, she's probably as healthy as I am now! :) My story: I found out I had it when fatigue began where it wasn't previously, and then tried to donate blood for a drive, and got "the call". I went to a Dr, got a biopsy, found out it had to be in 1985 (I was exposed to it then), and he said there was enough scar tissue present to indicate that.
Avatar m tn After reading around some more, it seems the nylon Nesbit would be a good choice, it basically is what I was talking about above, but I can't find cost information so far, just that it is much cheaper than a three unit bridge. Still trying to see how much a mini dental implant would cost, or if it is even feasible to do. It is supposed to be cheaper & less heal time than the normal dental implants.
Avatar n tn On the 14th day of agony I scheduled an appointment to have the tooth next to it extracted (I knew going in to this that the two teeth had problems- they were reccomending a root canal and a crown on the other one because the tooth was cracked). He did not suggest or reccomend it- nor was he particularly thrilled to do it. The second tooth came out easily (unlike the first one).
Avatar f tn Hello Everyone, I was asked to post my information and video about Convenia here. This drug isn't safe due to how long it stays in the system alone. If your cat or dog has a bad reaction it will be very difficult to counteract that. I hope this will help someone avoid the death or harm of their beloved cat or dog. Please inform yourselves about Convenia if you're not familiar with and request that NO CONVENIA be put in the charts. Lets take this drug off the market for good..
1323357 tn?1274826939 Personally, I found that a good time to take a shower or bath is right before going to bed. It calms you down nicely and makes your body tired and prepared for rest. Take good care of your appearance in general. Look as good as you can every day! Wear clothes that are comfortable and that look well on you, especially you're going out. Eventually this outward confidence will soak into your mind and you will start to feel better too.
Avatar m tn The surgeon that did the bone graft didn't even ask to do a follow up to see if everything is ok. I had to ask how long it would take for the bone graft to heal. He said 2 months and I asked him if he can see me then to follow up and give me the clearance to get my braces put on. It's been almost 2 weeks since the procedure and everything seems to be ok. Just don't have the confidence with the doctor I picked so I'm on here asking for professional opinions.
