Sore gums under tooth

Common Questions and Answers about Sore gums under tooth


Avatar n tn Might this be causing problems to the gums on the other tooth? I am very sore under the chin right where the sore gum is -- I'm assuming that is where my lymph nodes are, and they are sore because I may have an infection? What do you think? Thanks!
Avatar n tn Greetings, About two weeks ago I woke up randomly with what felt to be sore, inflamed gums near the first molars on each side of my front 4 incisors. I also noticed that the gums beneath them seem to have receded quickly. I also had several ulcers, one on the roof of my mouth, one under my tongue -- both of which feel as though they've healed up. I had a deep cleaning done a week ago -- the Dentist noticed a significant buildup of calculus on the back of my front incisors.
606417 tn?1220302738 For the past 2 days it has become very painful to brush my teeth. When I am done I look at my gums and they are bruised. At first I thought they were bleeding but they are just bruised and really burn. The day before this started happening I noticed swelling under my tongue. I do not have a sore throat, nor am I sick. I just feel like I have swollen "glands" under my tongue. If there even are glands, I assume their are salivary glands there but not sure what I am looking at.
Avatar m tn However, last night when brushing, I spit out blood, and now there are red spots on my gum line under one tooth, and less visible spots under my two front teeth. Gums are a bit sore. I have been brushing and flossing four times a day (after every meal) since the cleaning. I assumed more brushing would prevent gum or plaque issues. Yesterday was the first time I used a baking soda and peroxide toothpaste, and that lead to initial gum soreness.
Avatar n tn He thought that he provblem was the adjacent tooth -- it looked like an old filling had chipped off a bit and that there was a crack in the tooth, and he referred me back to my general dentist. Unfortunately, I am in the process of changing dentists and do not have my new patient appointment until a couple of weeks hence. The tooth is throbbing quite a bit (without any provocation) but is not sensitive to chewing or hot/cold.
Avatar n tn part of the old tooth broke and they had to cut away some of the gums around the tooth and make the crown longer.. ( lower jaw right side just before the molar ) .. since then my front lower teeth .. and what feels like my gums and under my tounge are sore.... its almost a dull pain.. does not respond to 800 mg ibprofen or ora gel at all... ive tapped the teeth with metal objects and no different, no visible damage to them.. ( so not a absess or cavitiy im guessing ) however...
Avatar m tn I went to the dentist today (yay!) and my gums have been sore all day... I looked in the mirror and it looks like I can see the base of two of my teeth through my gums! For a while now I have had one little white spot coming through that I thought was just a cancker-sore or something but now I'm worried it might be the base of my tooth coming through the gum! (it looks like a bubble in the picture(s) - canine on right side of picture .
Avatar n tn 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 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 In the past few days, I'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 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 ) Generally it has been ok but the last few days i have noticed pain which seems to be coming from the sites where i was injected. The under side gum of the tooth area also appears to be 'split' and i think this is also close to where i had an injection (i had 3 in total) and this is very sore. i am paranoid about dry socket after reading so much about it but dont apppear to be getting pain directly from the site of the extraction itself.
1030433 tn?1252288029 I am having all 4 wisdom teeth pulled (2 came in sideways) and 5 molars ( 2 bottom left, 2 bottom right and 1 upper left) my molars (or whats left of them) are cracked down into my gums... Should I expect to have all 9 extractions done in one day? Am I (I hope) looking at general anesthesia? Am I looking at a lot of pain and swelling and bruising? Should I plan to be rather blah all day?
1649664 tn?1301499785 Dental disease doesn't get better and if Smokey has signs of gingivitis, then most likely she needs a good cleaning under the gums and probably some teeth pulled, as well. Did your vet look at Smokey's teeth real good? An xray shouldn't be necessary - it's usually visually obvious what a cats teeth are like.
Avatar n tn Okay this is going to sound like extreme cowardice but please bear with me. Just under four years ago, I discovered that I had a wisdom tooth coming out (lower right side) it hurt a bit and did not emerge completely, unfortunately I was heading to Japan and didn't really have time to get it sorted out back home I thought I could get it done in Japan.
Avatar n tn No it is sun and the pain is only bad if I push directly don on that tooth--HOWEVER---my entire jaw hurts on that side now, I have pressure in my sinus on that side and i think I feel a bit of a lump (which is sensitive to pressure) on the bottom of my jaw directly under that tooth. I will go back in the morning but to get a second opinion will take a few days and a couple hundred mile round trip. Any thoughts? I am tired of the pain and even more tired of the pain medicine.
1399033 tn?1449591379 you def want to get it done asap and you dont want to be nursing a sore tooth and possible healing and a newborn.
Avatar n tn Anyways, I have noticed for a long time now, that the glan in my throat under that back tooth gets swollen sometimes and painfull. I also find from time to time that it seems more difficult for me to swallow, which scares me just from that feeling. 1- Can a tooth thats broken off, and only have roots cause me to feel sometimes like it is much harder to swallow? 2- Just how scarey is it to have roots removed, how bad is it to get that done,and what is the precidure?
Avatar m tn Today I found a relatively bigger spot on the gum under the tooth adjacent to it. I have never had herpes before. Could be the first outbreak ? I do have muscle aches, slight fever (99.5F) and sore throat. Thanks.
Avatar m tn If the tooth is broken too severely or the cavity has spread too deep under the gums, the tooth may not be saved by a cap/crown and will need to be removed. If it isn't that bad, the root canal will need to be done and a cap made asap.
230262 tn?1316649534 I have so much pain every single day particularly with my back and have 2 small children to take care of (one of which is an accident prone little guy who had to have stitches recently, this kid worries me to death and keeps me running non stop!!) ANyhow, I also have a lot of tooth probelms recently which means.......taking even more vics-- the pain wakes me up in the night its so bad, radiating into my ear, jaw, neck and throat even.
Avatar n tn I brush back there twice daily and floss under the sore gum, but it still hurts. My tooth itself doesn't seem to be rotting, just all of a sudden my gum is growing over the top of it. The flesh is really sore and is white some times. It is also very loose (I can pull it the flap away from the tooth). Please see the picture for more details.* I've looked all over the internet, but haven't found anything. I would go to a dentist, but I'm 22, unemployed, with no health insurance.
Avatar f tn I had inflammation, throbbing, pressure, and after a day or so I noticed a white little dot on the gums/cheek area. I applied pressure with a q-tip, a foul tasting pus came out. I have been cleaning it regularly with salt water and the pain is not in tooth, but mostly in the gum/cheek area above the back molar. I went to see the dentist (I am staying in Bahrain to visit my dad who works here, and went to a dentist here).
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 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 f tn The soreness came and went away, but would return when I ate food that was bad for sore throats. The taste bud problem completely went away. My neck was pretty sore around the beginning of the sore throat. Two weeks ago or so ago I started having a cough with white mucous. Two days ago, the very back of my gums (right behind my last molar) (almost my throat) swelled up as well as a the lymph node directly under it on the same side. My throat hurts on that same side too.
Avatar n tn every time i talk for more than a couple of minutes, my gums where the tooth was extracted seem to swell, and my throat begins to hurt,(becomes very sore...). my ear pops, ....all the e.n.t. could tell me was my muscles were very tight, and it could take weeks to go afraid that i have nerve damage. if you find out what happened to you, could you please let me know.....

Avatar n tn The tooth was extremely sensitive to the air blast when the crown was finally put on in late December and I had sensitivity to hot and cold foods right away. Since I had so much work done and my gums were sore, my dentist advised that I wait to see if this is causing the sensitivity. Since then I have both pain and sensitivity and the pain is getting worse. I take aspirin about three times a day and usually the pain starts a few hours after eating and now in the middle of the night.
