Avatar n tn For over a year I have been experiencing sore and sometimes inflamed and swollen gums. I have seen both my dentist and hygienist and we have been unable to solve the problem or what is causing it. The pain is now there more often than not now, whereas before it was intermittent. I have not managed to pin point what may cause the symptoms.
Avatar f tn Does anybody else have really sore gums? It hurts to even bite down on a sandwich from subway.
Avatar m tn As the gums around the tooth socket continue to shrink/heal I have developed a very sore spot on the lip side of my gums 4mm below the edge of the socket. Upon feeling & looking at it it appears that the top part of the tooth socket cracked and there is now a rough edge along this fracture with a sharp edge below the gums. (This fracture feels like it goes all the way down to the base of the gum area but is more subtle further down). Whenever I smile or move my lips it is sore.
Avatar f tn It started with a broken tooth that got sore, then the gums, then my cheeks and tongue swelled up nd inside of mt lips, I developed a white sore on the end of my tongue and it split open from top to underneath. Really bad headaches nd now my throat is sore and my lungs are tight. I gargle and brush with baking soda and hydrogen peroxide, which keeps it somewhat under control. What do you thinK? O, and I am extremely fatigued. I almost forgot to mention that I have red spots on my palate.
Avatar m tn Its almost like there was a small sensitive bump in my lower gums. It happened to be right under the tooth that was hurting too...

The dentist says it might be cause be irritating during surgery and will recover soon... but its been 2 weeks and the pain didnt go off... is it gum disease or something? i am freaking out...please help!
Avatar f tn Hello I have severe pain under my crown, my gums are swollen around the crown and are also sore, the most extreme pain I've ever had with a tooth. I had some augmentin on hand which I started taking today, can't see dentist until tues. Does anyone know what this is? Please help. Started yesterday, so today is my second day with this pain. Also have slight swelling in my cheek.
Avatar n tn Why is my tongue so sore? I have dry mouth from taking prescriptions and my tongue over a period of time has become very sore and sensitive to salt or pepper or spicy food.
Avatar n tn Yes it still could be. Try cleaning the area out as much as you can with floss, brushing and mouthwash gently. But I would still recommend seeing a dentist in case there's something causing it. I had a patient once who had a spacer stuck under the gums and that cause pain and swelling. I'm pretty sure the mom had a talk with their orthodontist later on.
Avatar n tn I was already given some AMOXICILLIN 500MG to take and started to take imidatly, however it is now tuesday and my face has been swollen and the gums near the tooth is all puffy and sore like i have thousands of mouth ulsers. i am getting worried as it really hurts.

Avatar m tn they are 2 canker sores connected to each other side by side. And also I have one small canker sore right under one of my bottom front tooth. On the hard surface of my gums. What does this mean? I am freaking out. Is it anything I should worry about? Or just canker sores. I have been getting canker sores on and off, but I dont think ever one on my gums. Dont know if this is related but for a few days now I have been waking up with a dry throat and somewhat of a dry mouth..

Avatar n tn A tooth abscess is usually a complication of tooth decay. In a dental abscess, or tooth abscess there is accumulation of pus inside the teeth or gums. The abscess usually originates from a bacterial infection and is mostly caused by a dental infection. The common presenting complaints are severe toothache, breath odour, fever, pain when chewing, sensitivity to hot or cold, swelling of gums, swollen glands etc.
Avatar n tn I had my permanent crown placed 10 days ago. . This was a tooth that had deep decay beneath an old filling. She said it was close to the root, but didn't do a root canal at this time. I went to have the bite adjusted twice since it was too high, and now the bite seems okay... it's slightly painful if I bite down hard though. But for the past few days the inside of my mouth - cheeks, lips, back of throat - have felt puffy and irritated. Certain foods even burn the back of my throat.
Avatar n tn The dentist took an x-ray and said the tooth was abcessed and the tooth needed to be pulled. When she was pulling the tooth, I was in excrutiating pain, and she said there was a pus discharge and my gums were turning black and blue. My questions are: Should I have been given antibiotics first, and then come back in a few days to have the tooth pulled, after the initial infection that I complained about had been given time to clear up?
Avatar n tn Last week, my gums did not bleed even when flossing. Now, my gums are bleeding where the tooth meets the gum under about 4 teeth just by normal brushing. Also, the inside of my lip also is very tender. Initially, I thought it may be just the starting stages of gingivitis or something, but the suddenness as well as the fact that I didn't have bleeding before while flossing make me think it might be something else.
Avatar n tn The one on the upper right has cracked and chipped twice over the past 7 months.The tooth has been digging into my gums and is uncomfortable to open my mouth too wide. Recently I have a frequent headaches and sore throat that also feels tight by the adam's apple. Is it common to have these side effects with chipped teeth?
Avatar m tn m experiencing a burning pain in the upper part of the tooth and gums. The pain will radiate from the tooth to the entire side of my face (right front tooth and right side of my face). I can feel a very sore spot under the upper part of my lip as well as soreness right below my nose if I press on it. The pain is off and on but sleeping has become difficult. I will be seeing a dentist when my insurance kicks in (11/26) but I need to figure something out till then.
Avatar m tn And a few years back I replaced its cap and saw that it is rotten and black in colour but the doctor( dentist ) said it nothing to worry about, also my gums under that tooth is a little blackish in color. Also I have history of sore throat and tonsils. So please if you can help on this.
Avatar n tn It has been 5 days and I notice a hard area on my jaw bone just under where the tooth was removed. My jaw is sore but this area is hard (like bone) and just smaller than a pencil eraser. What do you think this could be? Thanks for your help. I heard crack during extraction but assume it was ligament. It does not hurt when I clamp teeth down but obviously is sore (as would be expected). I have epilepsy and can't drive. My dentist is about 2.5 hours from me and feel ok.
Avatar f tn I have a bump/lump in my gums above the upper teeth, it is a little sore, what can I do
Avatar n tn He tapped the crowned tooth and each tooth on either side of the crowned tooth. No pain for me there. He applied cool air around the area. No discomfort. He applied that cool gel to the crowned tooth and to the teeth in the front and back of the crowned tooth to check the nerves. I felt no pain. Of course the crowned tooth felt no sensation because of the root canal that was done on it. He poked around the ridges and gumline and no breaks or leaks were evident.
