Sore jaw tooth

Common Questions and Answers about Sore jaw tooth


Avatar f tn Did the dentist take an xray of the tooth? If the throbbing is coming from the tooth root there may be an abscess forming. As long as the filling is intact and the chip has no fracture where sugary foods and drink can penetrate through it to the inner tooth, there should be no problem. If it is around the outside of your tooth, it that would be a gum problem. Did the dentist say the gum looked healthy or not? Flossing in between the teeth to the gum line will help.
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.
Avatar f tn Common cold, sinusitis, ear infection, sensory nerve compression, peripheral neuropathy as in diabetes, inflamed wisdom tooth, impacted wisdom tooth, dental caries, etc can all cause facial numbness and pain (in and around jaw area). Hemi facial numbness is also seen in Bell’s palsy, trigeminal neuralgia where a spasm may cause numbness, or due to acoustic neuroma which is a benign tumor of the eighth cranial nerve. Please discuss with your doctor. Take care!
Avatar n tn Now I have a canker sore on the left, lower side of my mouth (not on the gum), and I'm experiencing jaw pain in the same area, under my neck. I can feel where the vein is pulsating with my fingers. My teeth don't hurt when I chew on that side, and there's no sensitivity to temperature (obviously the canker sore stings when things get into it). The jaw pain didn't start until after I started using mouthwash in addition to brushing.
Avatar n tn In the last month, I've noticed that on my left side of my upper jaw, where the natural bump in the jaw bone is above the canine tooth, the gum was more bony than on my right side. I today applied pressure on the bony gum to see if was an abscessed tooth, but it's not since the bump did not go down nor was there any pain or fluid.
Avatar f tn If you have had a recent throat infection, it could also be due to lymph node enlargement. It could also be due to local causes like tooth infections, tooth abscess or periodontal disease. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance. In the meantime you can take OTC pain medication Ibuprofen. Ensure to take this medication after food to avoid gastritis. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn A broken jaw from wisdom tooth removal is one of the more rare complications, but its still common enough that we are taught about a fair amount about it in school and how to handle it. Its highly unlikely that anything the oral surgeon did would have caused it (except he took out the tooth), especially 10 days later. The only chance of negligence on his part would be how he handles the situation now. But from what you mentioned, he is doing everything he can.
Avatar n tn I stopped taking the Amoxil yesterday because I don't like the side effects of lightheadedness. Right now, it doesn't hurt to bite down, but the bone under my gums above the tooth is sore to the touch, and it feels like I have a lot of soft tissue puffiness in my jaw and inside my mouth right now, plus my lymph nodes are still swollen and hurting. I've been using mouthwash vigorously since yesterday, I think that's what I did differently last time.
Avatar n tn Sometimes after getting a shot in the area near the tooth, there will be pain for a couple of days after. My gum swelled and was sore for atleast 4 days after my fillings were done. It does go away.
Avatar f tn I believe the dentist, somehow, tapped into the nerves of the last two tooth too because all the three teeth hurt. Now, almost 5 months later, my jaw is getting sore. The 3 teeth are getting sore and sensitive. The pain being compared to a dull cavity pain. I can't open my mouth wide enough to eat. My jaw will get sore and I can't open very wide. I have also noticed the bone on my right lower jaw is slightly bigger than the left jaw. What should I do?
Avatar n tn 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. It's a dull ache that seems to be more in my jaw than tooth, but the sensitivity to hot/cold is definitely in the tooth. My bite seems to be too high and I've been told that this can cause the problem. I went back to my dentist and had an xray and they said it "may need a root canal" but they were not sure.
Avatar f tn Now iv had my filling I no longer have the toothache but I am suffering from this face ache. It is really sore to touch and when I open my mouth my jaw hurts too. Anyone know what this could be? So painful!
Avatar m tn So a month ago I had a tooth pulled #30 and 29 had a filling also had a crown done on #19 I was fine for about a month a little soreness which I just assumed is my tmj I use a otc mouthgaurd for 2-3 years with no problem but now my jaw is still sore and #29 2 days ago was very sensitive to cold and hurt when I chewed on it went in to dentist and they said it was fine no crack nothing and just polished it a little but my jaw is still sore and when I bite down it seems i can feel that tooth.
Avatar f tn He took another xray and said he thinks my body may be rejecting a tooth because it appears that the root of the tooth wasn't as deep. He said this could be my problem. I am still experiencing random jaw pain (even when I am not chewing anything), and still can't chew gum. I am returning to my dentist next week and I'll see what he says and if another xray shows anything. I'm not going to let him pull my tooth without a second opinion.
Avatar f tn 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". Antibiotics are not helping with sore throat. I am scheduled to see my ENT Dr. on Friday. I'm very concerned about the sore throat pain, jaw pain and now weird nerve sensation in my neck and throat area. Any ideas?
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 m tn Thank you for your response I will defiantly try what you told me, I just wanted make sure it was normal , as I'm kinda of a hypochondriac and was scared I may of gotten tmj , I can open my mouth quite wide but it hosts feels a bit stiff and sore in the area were the tooth used to be, hopefully it will go away soon
Avatar m tn Hi, About two years ago I began getting headaches and waking up with sore teeth. My dentist figured I was grinding my teeth and so I was given a night guard. Since then I have been wearing, but I feel like its making the problem worse, even though it does minimize the soreness. Lately, I have been waking up with sore front teeth. I think the night guard is wearing through or something. I have tried sleeping without it. I don't have headaches anymore but my teeth are still sore.
Avatar f tn hi oral and maxillofacail surgeion, i had a plate removal 7 months ago starting getting sharp pains like every 2-3 day or less i'm uesing ibruprofen pain killers but it keeps on coming back only tooth that is sore lower front will that cause the pain? or is the damamage of the nerve?
Avatar m tn I have had a sore throat for almost 14 days now, accompanied by infrequent stabbing pain in my jaw. I know that it's not normal to have a sore throat for this long (it's on my right side, same side as jaw pain) and I'm starting to become concerned. I saw a dentist, thinkin that it was tooth related, but the dentist said he could not attribute it to any tooth problems. He took my temp, felt glands, applied pressure to gums. Nothing, but the pain still persists. What could it be ?
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 m tn You can purchase Bonjela from the pharmacy or from a large supermarket to apply to the ulcer. This will protect it from being aggravated by your teeth. The sore jaw is likely to be from a virus, or wisdom tooth coming through it they haven't done so. Best wishes.
Avatar n tn Have had a sensation of sore tounge, prickly toung particularly at back, sore mouth. Also a sensation that my tounge is too large in my mouth. I now also have a very distinct Tremor in my lower jaw and my mouth seems to be watering a lot. It imptoves slightly if I eat. I was diagnosed earlier in the year with Thyroiditis. Which supposedly got better. I have a serious brain fog and my eyes are very light sensitive. I have struggled with frequent herpes virus out breaks for over 30years.

If it is entirely within the jaw or involves a tooth, then the oral surgeon is the right choice. If not, ENT is where you need to be (and this is a big generalization, there is a lot of overlap there). There are a variety of benign and malignant things to be considered.
Avatar n tn i had a tooth pulled about 2 weeks ago I am still in alot of pain and it feels like a sharp object is sticking out of my gum what could this be
Avatar m tn Also there is a tender lymph node on right neck below the jaw. Lymph nodes went down by 4th week. I'm afraid because I have a broken tooth in mouth that bleeds very slightly when brushed. Moreover, I had a scraped knee with a scab over it however with a little bit of blood oozing out of scab. I freaked out after developing these symptoms. After all other symptoms subsided back pain stayed for few more days. Possible HIV from kissing with cracked tooth, or blood on knee somehow?
