Common Questions and Answers about Piece of wisdom tooth left behind


Avatar n tn it could also be an absess, or perhaps a fragment of the wisdom tooth was left behind. have it x-rayed and checked out.
Avatar m tn He put a stitch in it and it was fine until the stitch dissolved and the socket got quite sore and it felt like there was exposed bone across my gum inside the socket. I went back and he said it was not a piece of root left in but bone which surrounds the tooth. I have no teeth left behind this one and he said it was slow to heal and grow across the bone because there was nothing behind it to 'hold it' as it grew.
Avatar f tn On the bottom left of my mouth behind the last tooth the gums hurt really bad, even if I eat just a banana. Could it be my wisdom tooth? How do I tell? Or do I just have to wait it out?
Avatar f tn A few days ago I discovered a long hard bump on the right side of my soft pallet, starting there the upper right wisdom tooth was coming in and ending about 1/4 of an inch from the center of my mouth. Applying pressure doesn't hurt anything aside from pinching the skin against it, but when I laugh too hard or cough, the right side of my sinus and temple light up with pain...Is it possible a fragment of my tooth was left inside??
Avatar f tn 2)- I would be relieved if you can confirm I understood your question. One of my worries was that a piece of root left behind would cause a chronic infection. Please address that concern also? If there is no undue risk of infection, why not leave the leftover piece of root in place?
Avatar n tn ( , i have no dentist either the list to sign up is long and im waiting. how did all of u get rid of this toothaches.
Avatar f tn He did not see anything wrong. But, on physical exam of the wisdom tooth, thought he found crack in tooth, below gumline. He said that's probably why infection keeps coming back, bacteria is constantly getting into gum. So, oral surg Rx'd more Amoxicillin, will Extract in a week. Went fine, with no drugs. He didn't tell me if tooth was in fact cracked, and I did not ask. Check Up- no dry socket, instructed how to rinse area with syringe with Rx rinse.
Avatar n tn i got my wisdom teeth pulled about two months ago but where my lower left one was removed there is a sharp portrution like a piece of tooth was left in the hole and there is some pain to is this something i should be concerned with.
11129330 tn?1430878608 I'm 34 weeks & I just noticed that my wisdom tooth is starting to come out, has anyone else's starting coming out during pregnancy?
Avatar m tn A piece of what I am assuming is a white food is stuck in one of the holes left from my wisdom tooth extraction. The extraction was almost three weeks ago, and the food has been stuck since yesterday afternoon. I have tried using my irrigation syringe but the water pressure doesn't seem to be enough to get the piece of food out. Should I attempt to remove it with tweezers? Could it be some sort of non-food part of the healing process? Thank you!
Avatar m tn he continued with the root canal after he took a break from me and worked on three other patients by that time I was dry mouthed from sitting there with my mouth wide open and sticks coming out of my tooth.......he came back to finish up and I was barely knumb and he said he couldn't administer anymore shots and to hang in there......2 days later I went to the er with facial swelling,and my eye lid almost swolled shut....and again today....with worse tooth pain and headaches......
Avatar n tn Hi, I wonder if anyone can help me I had my Upper left Wisdom Tooth out almost 3 Weeks ago, just by normal extraction & I am still suffering with pain. I get earache in my left ear & pain behind my left eye, and when the pain comes on my teeth feel weird like I need to bite down, it's a bit hard to explain!
Avatar n tn It may be a piece of the tooth that broke off when you had it removed. Regardless, see your dentist for an evaluation.
Avatar m tn Hi there, The hard cellulose fibers of the popcorn kernel don't break down easily and it can remain stuck between the gum and the tooth. The longer a food particle stays trapped between the gum and tooth, the greater the chance the gum will become irritated and infected and can become a serious problem if left untreated. You may try rinsing your mouth with warm saline water. This will help in dislodging the popcorn. If it doesn’t come out see a dentist. Do keep me posted.
Avatar f tn Also on my upper right side the tooth right next to where the wisdom will be, its completely rotting away and pieces of my tooth are falling off it. I think I had that tooth filled in in some places because every time a piece falls off I taste silver. Its not painful yet but I am hoping a dentist will just at least go ahead and pull the rotten tooth out.
Avatar n tn The first time I went to the dentist about my current problem was in June, but the dentist I went to told me that the problem was my wisdom tooth pushing on my other tooth, and prescribed amoxicillin, and ibuprofen 600mg. The unpleasant sensation subsided, and subsequently I had my wisdom tooth removed, and was again prescribed amoxicillin.
Avatar f tn Upper wisdom tooth removal is totally different from that of lower wisdom tooth.Extraction of upper wisdom tooth generally takes no more than 10 miniutes. Post-op pain and complications are generally minimal. Patients generally take one or two doses of OTC pain killer. Antibiotics is rarely needed. Swelling is a rare occurence.Your dentist was absolutely right.
Avatar n tn I also still have my wisdom teeth, and while the top 2 have come in, the left bottom wisdom tooth is severely impacted, and I know it is swelling the gum area around my other back left molar and is often sore, (think its called Pericoronitis). The only area where I usually feel any pain in my mouth is directly under my impacted left bottom wisdom tooth. Sometimes I can feel a bit of pain coming from the tonsil area, but not severe.
Avatar m tn When there is no room, or very little room in the jaw, top or bottom, the wisdom teeth have no room to grow through and can cause a lot of pain and swelling. If you feel this could be a wisdom tooth trying to come through, you will need to see your dentist. The other possibility is swollen glands or a blocked salivary gland which may be a viral or a bacterial infection, and if this is the case you will need to see your doctor. Let me know how you get on.
Avatar f tn Tooth pulled by oral surgeon. Old wisdom tooth should have been removed years ago. All went well, I found a great caring surgeon.
631640 tn?1264419173 I just had surgery yesterday having all 4 of my impacted wisdom teeth removed. 3 were partial bony impacted, and 1 was complete bony impacted. My face was swollen today like normal but tonight, the right side of my face on my lower jaw became WAY more swollen than anywhere else. I'm not sure what would cause the swelling, I only have 2 theories... One is that it would be infected?
Avatar n tn When i had went by him he said i had tmj but all my tmj symtoms are now gone but i get really bad pains in the roof of my mouth.By chance do you think when they were taking out my wisdom teeth they could of left a piece of tooth in my gums and it went up in the roof of my mouth and pinching on a nerve?Or that doesnt make any sense?
