Sore jaw near wisdom tooth

Common Questions and Answers about Sore jaw near wisdom tooth


Avatar m tn Hey, about a week my jaw was hurting and I was not able to chew properly on my left side of my mouth. I thought it was my wisdom tooth but like that wisdom tooth had already grown in - I have all four. So the pain continued then stopped, but I noticed about a week ago there was this bump in my mouth near the pain, near the wisdom area - a white hard bump, with no pain. I have soreness around my neck and sometimes in my ear.
Avatar f tn Sometimes ear ringing and I have got little lymphnode on the right side of my neck near jaw maybe 2 centimeters big. May wisdom tooth cause that problems ?

Avatar f tn re sorry you are going through this and do encourage you to be seen by your doctor or at the very least, call and talk to them about it. Is your throat sore as well? Before your wisdom tooth extraction, did you have difficulty swallowing a pill? How long ago was the extraction? The lump appeared after that or was there prior?
Avatar n tn if my x-ray shown that there is a cyst forming near my left upper wisdom tooth, should i have it taken out as soon as possible, or should i wait until the tooth is fully grown? would a wisdom tooth grow back once it's taken out?
Avatar f tn to whom it may concern, I am a 23 year old female with left lower mouth pain where the wisdom tooth should be, i went to an oral surgeon today who said he thinks its tmj but told me that the left lower wisdom tooth is impacted and in the bone near the jaw, im am thinking that it is my wisdom tooth that is causing the problem but he doesnt think so. he thinks its tmj what do any of you think it is.
Avatar f tn I've been on antibiotics 3 X, every time I'm done, infection comes back, even after tooth extraction. Please see details below, I need your opinion. Thank You... Started with Left sore throat, then Gum Pain & hard white painful bump near #17 wisdom tooth. Got severe, hard to swallow, chew, painful. My reg. Dentist Rx'd Amoxicillin - took 6 days to start working. After swelling went down,did x-ray, he could not find any problem -tooth not abcessed.
Avatar f tn hey my daughter is 4 and has a tooth coming (where adults get there wisdom tooth) she also has a swollen gland on this side. I thouth the worse that she had cancer but had her at the ENT and he said he thinks it the tooth.
Avatar n tn I was wondering about my wisdom tooth. I knew it was coming in and then a couple of days ago it started to swell up and really started to hurt and my jaw was sore. So I started some antiobiotics that I had around the house(amoxicilin). Well the swelling went down but my jaw is still sore and I think one of my lymph nodes are swollen. Do you think that I should stay on the antibiotics a little while longer before going into the dentist.
Avatar m tn Hello I'm here because I had a wisdom tooth extraction on all 4 wisdom to which were impacted It's around 3 weeks since my surgery and in having a lot of jaw stiffness it lasts the whole day in wondering if this is because of the surgery and is this normal to happen
Avatar n tn Also, the gum is swollen near my wisdom tooth, which is two teeth behind where the crown was placed. Not red or anything, but puffy & tender.
Avatar n tn Doctors, after endoscopy, said it is gastritis (and no ulcers etc). But strangely my mouth walls became sore and jaw pain. When ever I feel more pain under my chest/heart burn kind of thing i have this mouth walls soreness and severe jaw pain both sides. Omeprozole is not at all working for my GERD. If I take antacid like Gaviscon it works. And i feel better. But after i stop the Gaviscon antacid again it comes back. Even if I jog in the morning my throat pains.
Avatar f tn dont think its an infection because i dont have any other symptoms of a infection but the one is bothering me is my jaw, ever since yesterday, both sides have been feeling sore and kinda tight. it comes and goes and now, only the side by my wisdom tooth hole feels tight. a few days earlier, i've been biting down on my teeth alot, could this be why? but i stopped doing it and the pain is still there.
Avatar f tn I then went to the oral surgeon a week later for a consultation. He said I had bone loss near the wisdom tooth from the infection, which scared me. He told me to wait to take another dose of amoxicillin until the day before the extraction. My jaw is currently hurting right below the lower left wisdom tooth. Does this mean the infection has returned from the first dose of amoxicillin and if so, am I still ok to wait until a week from tomorrow to have the tooth extracted?
Avatar m tn s not unbearable, just noticeable. Occasionally I will get a sharp pain in my jaw around where my wisdom teeth were. I went to the dentist, he felt my neck, took temperature, etc pressed on my gums around the tooth. Nothing, no pain. Looked at my throat and said that it just looked irritated, and that he's seen a lot worse. I know that having a sore throat for this long is not normal, and I'm just a little concerned. Anybody have any ideas ? All help is greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn Given the persistence of my pain, I returned to see a different dentist in the practice who did 2 more detailed xrays and saw a slight infection in wisdom tooth. I had the tooth removed the next day. The pain is still there and my throat is still sore. I questioned whether the white 'spot' in my jaw on the OPG could be a tumor, causing the pain. Because they feel it's condensing osteitis and have seen no change in size, etc. on the OPG, they said "no".
Avatar f tn I have an impacted wisdom tooth on my lower right side of my mouth. I recently have been sick with a sore throat, had a slight gum infection and been told that my tooth is impacted and needs to come out soon. My ear on the right has been closed and hurts sometimes. When I eat my jaw hurts sometimes as well and my right check is slightly swollen. I recently noticed swelling in my sternocleidomastoid muscle and I am not sure if that is linked to my wisdom tooth.
Avatar f tn s called) and when I went back he told me I had a really bad infection under the tooth in front of my bottom right wisdom tooth and it would need root canal treatment as the infection is really close to the jaw bone... I had no pain in that tooth but I thought back to a few months prior when I was having painful aches in my jaw, it felt like I couldn't open my mouth and so it made sense... Ok I said do it... but then he went ahead and removed the wisdom tooth behind the infected tooth...
Avatar n tn I got my wisdom tooth taken out 3 years ago and the dentist said I'm fine and I haven't realized it till now but my jaw is still swollen. It looks completely disfigured from the other side. What could be causing this?
Avatar m tn That area still hasnt healed and gums are beginning to surround my molar (tooth 31)? Also the inner lining of my mouth near my jaw line is a blood red. Is this an infection? Should I seek a dentist out asap?
Avatar f tn Your headache is more than likely due to the extraction of your wisdom teeth. Your jaw was open extra wide, and the muscles leading from there to your head could be spasming or understandably sore.
Avatar f tn Removal of wisdom tooth probably has no effect on tmj symptoms, unless wisdom tooth has occlusal contact with opposing tooth. Limited jaw oping is generally caused by muscle spasm or disc displacement, or both. Seeing a competent tmj specialist is advisd.
Avatar n tn I had my lower left side wisdom tooth removed about a week and five days ago and I am slowly experiencing more and more pain in my upper jaw area. I am having diffculties opening my mouth because of the pain and soreness. What I need to know is this normal to have pain in the jaw area after a wisdom tooth extraction? And if so, how long should I expect to experience this pain?
Avatar f tn Could this sinus infection ive had for about two weeks be affecting my jaw because it is really painful. I know my jaw is slightly unaligned because I need braces and my wisdom tooth out and I get that. Im just wondering why its hurting this bad with this virus I have. I cant chew foods or open my mouth slightly, its not extreme pain but its bareable, I feel it.
Avatar n tn s a carryover from our earlier ancestors and relatives (the great apes), a bony outcropping the purpose of which is to reinforce the jaw and give it greater strength. I have a prominent simian ridge around my lower jaw from wisdom tooth to wisdom tooth, and my niece (the daughter of my non-identical twin sister) mentioned to me the other day that she had one, too. So, I assume genetics plays a part in who does or does not have one.
Avatar n tn I had got my wisdom tooth extracted (right side (top and bottom), on 14th feb 2008. Post the extraction, .. the gums seemed to heal well, .. but I had trouble opening my mouth. For, the first 2 weeks i thought it was something that would go away, but it didn't. So, I went back to my dentist, he prescribed skelliaxin(muscle relaxant) i was have that, .... with no improvement. I went to a TMJ specialist today,.. for a second opnion,..
