Swollen gums around one tooth

Common Questions and Answers about Swollen gums around one tooth


Avatar f tn Hello, Gum disease is caused by a build-up of plaque on the teeth. Plaque forms when you eat and drink and contains bacteria .Untreated plaque will build up and irritate the gums, leading to redness, swelling and soreness. The type of treatment will depend on the extent of the gum disease. Treatment of periodontal disease can be either non-surgical or surgical therapy. See a dentist and get examined. I sincerely hope it helps. Best wishes and regards!
Avatar f tn Also, the gums around the one tooth with the gap beside it have been swollen and red looking BUT not all the time. Sometimes I forget it's even there. When I brush my teeth sometimes it bleeds around that one tooth. But tonight I was just sitting in bed, and I sort of put my tongue up to the gap between the two teeth and sucked a bit and tasted blood. I don't think I did anything to irritate the area by eating anything hard or anything like that. I'm not really sure what's going on.
Avatar f tn If one never had swollen gums after taking Diltiazem Hydrochloride Extended-release Capsules USP for years and then suddenly has swollen gums (no redness or infection) could the Diltiazem suddenly cause this after getting a "deep cleaning" of the teeth, or 'probing for pocket depths' at a dentist?
Avatar m tn I have a sudden swelling in the gums around my wisdom tooth. This is happening around only one tooth and another sympton is that my throat glands seemed swollen on the same side as i experience sharp pains when ingesting food. Not sure what is the cause of this it started hurting on say like last sat but i could still eat then by monday night it had double the size. i want to know what remedies there is that might counteract the swelling other than prescribe medicine.
Avatar f tn He came in my mouth, not much semen and i spitted out nearly straight away. Thing is afterwards i noticed a red sore around my top tooth and awhile later i noticed the gums in top of my mouth were badly swollen so could have been slightly swollen at the time.
Avatar n tn in a perfect world a root canal and crown or an implant would be ideal depending on how badly damaged the tooth is but these procedures can cost around 1500 to 5000 depending on where you live. you need to see a dentist right now to evaluate your situation and go through your options. if you have a local dental school or low income clinic in your area you might want to check them out. good luck!
Avatar n tn We were taking pano on each other and I noticed that I had a radiolucent area around the apex of tooth #19. This tooth had root canal done 3 years ago and I got a nice crown on it too. I visited my dentist regurlaly. I had no pain or discomfort prior to the pano that we took on Nov 18. Since then, I visited my dentist and he told me it is an abscess. I started the Amoxicillin on monday, I also noticed that I had a throbbing pain since last sunday.Well...
Avatar m tn In the early stages of the decay there were the usualy symptoms, Pus/Swollen Gums/etc. After a while. The symptoms subsided and my gums started to develope a hard lump (no pain). After getting the infected tooth extracted and taking antibiotics. The hard lump decreased drastically (but never completely went away). Now a month after the extraction. One day I was pushing on (whats left of the lump) and playing with it.

Avatar f tn Three of them are perfectly fine but I felt a sharp pain in the 4th one I ignored it. Waking up in the morning I noticed my gums were swollen too only around that one tooth. I immediately told my parents and they said I must wait and see what happens , its been three days and four nights since then, my gums are still swollen around that tooth and I noticed my jaw is swollen and feels hard if I touch it and its difficult for me to open my mouth widely..its the bottom right side of my mouth.
Avatar f tn Hi there, An impacted wisdom tooth can give rise to pain or tenderness of gums, jaw ache, redness and swelling of gums around the tooth, swollen lymph nodes and difficulty opening the mouth. The symptoms you have been having could possibly be due to any bacterial or viral illness.Tonsillitis, flu; otitis media all can give rise to these symptoms. I will advise you to seek the opinion of a doctor and get evaluated. You may need an ENT examination. Do keep me posted. Best wishes and regards!
Avatar n tn I just had my bottom right wisdom tooth taken out on monday and here it is six days later and im having this pain in the gums on the tooth right next to the extraction site. i can chew alright but it is very sensitive around there. i looks a bit swollen too. i dont think it is a dry sockett caus i thinik i wouldnt be able to eat or be in alot of pain, i dont know what it is...
Avatar n tn return to the dentist. you may need a different antibiotic and may need to have the root canal recleaned. the swelling you describe is not normal and no amount of swishing or hanging upside down will help.
Avatar n tn My gums eroded. Exposing the tooth. I now have just one tooth in my mouth. It is starting to decay. Should I have a general cleaning, or have the area next to gumline filled with a dental temporary substance like root canals ? I see cavity around base. Help me to make right decision before going to dentists I can be informed. Would any kind of drilling be hazardous. My surgeon said Bell's palsy imminent if removed.
Avatar n tn He said the crown looked fine but the gums however, were swollen. He put me on a medicated oral rinse and told me to check with him in two weeks. This may seem weird but one thing I had not noticed until I got home today is that the tooth hurts when it is tapped on or near the sides BUT if I place my thumb under the bottom of that tooth to apply pressure and THEN tap, there is NOT ANY pain at all. My question is could it be an ill fitting crown that is the culprit here?
Avatar n tn I had an abscessed tooth removed after being on antibiotics for one week, my jaw was a bit swollen before he removed the tooth the swelling had not gone down with the antibiotics. There was an awful smell which he said was the abscess. I am taking amoxcillin at the moment and it now 8 days since the extraction but my jaw is still swollen the same as it was before the extraction, is this normal should the swelling be going down by now, it is not really painful.
Avatar n tn I used a mirror to see what it looks like and to my suprise it is white istead of red. The swelling is spreading to my gums around my right front tooth. I'm trying not to touch it and irritate it further, but it has gotten so swollen that my bottom teeth hit it when I close my mouth. This has become a common occurance over the years but I don't remember it hurting this badly before. I do grind my teeth at night and occasionally wear a mouth guard when I sleep but haven't worn it for a while.
5598716 tn?1439146795 He told me that I have swollen lymph nodes in my neck and jaw on the right side. It's official now. My pain has worsened. The whole tooth and the gums around it are all irritated and painful now. Constant, horrible, throbbing toothache. I feel like I'm ill too. I'm guessing this tooth is infected and that's what's making me feel so awful. Just picture the flu with a bad toothache. I'm getting ear pain, neck pain and face pain all on the right side where the irritated tooth is.
Avatar f tn i had root canal treatment done on my upper middle large tooth around twenty years ago, from time to time over the years i felt a little lump on my gum, never caused me pain. last sunday i woke up with a severe pain in this tooth, went to dentist on monday, who took an xray and said i had a abscess. he put me antibotics and gave me pain killers also, its now wed and my lips and gums are swollen, the pain has gone down a tiny bit but i still cant sleep with the pain.
Avatar n tn Inside my mouth is another knot (all white) the size of a large pencil eraser and the lower gums are all swollen. Called dentist (he's gone) his partner put me on another anti-biotic Clindamycin 150 mg. My third dose is tonight and so far - no changes at all. I can't eat or sleep as the pain in unreal. Can anyone give me any advice - I fear a long weekend. And thank you!!
Avatar f tn Update, I am still tinkering around with Heme in the 10.5, it rallied for a couple weeks 10.7 then a wopping 11. 15 week PCR is 5000, at 12 weeks I was 19000. Insurance company okayed another 8 months of tx. I see the Dr. on Tuesday we are going to talk about adding a drug to work on the NASH. I am not working now and hope to level off soon. I miss my job.. Spent last week chasing around for an oral surgeon. Started on Amoxioillin, it didn't touch the swelling.
Avatar n tn I was eating strawberries the other day and I believe that a small seed got stuck in my gums behind my right wisdom tooth on the bottom. This has happened before with popcorn, but the offending particles easily came out and the swelling went down. Now, whatever is stuck there is pretty well stuck. My gum is swollen pretty badly and it's starting to get pretty painful.
Avatar n tn My guess is the root canal was not done right or im very senesitive to the crown or that cement they put in there. gums are still soar on one side the crown. Is this nornal for temp crowns?
Avatar n tn My aunt has problems with vertigo although its been a few years, recently she had an infected tooth and her face had swollen up pretty bad. The infection caused an imbalance in her inner ear fluid and caused her to actually pass out while driving her car. Luckily no one was hurt but the ER doctor did say this could aggravate vertigo.
Avatar f tn Since I posted my toot abscess has spread i think- there are little white pimple dots leaking pus now on the other side of my mouth (top gum). Also, my top gums are swollen (feel like a donkey), my lymph nodes are throbbing, my throat is super raw, and I feel an intense pressure in my cheek bones on both sides of my face (almost feels like pusing up to my eyes). I am so scared. I stopped taking the antibiotics and then this happened a day later so I have doubled up the antibiotics.
Avatar m tn A few days ago my gums started hurting around 6 (my teeth are bunched togather) of my lower right teeth starting at the middle front one. At the front one the gum has almost disapeared over a few years for a reason i do not know. And now a few of the gums are pussing. I keep swishing a mix of 3/4 water and 1/4 peroxide around them twise a day but keeps happening. I dont have money for a dentised and my medicaid doesnt cover any withen 50 miles of my home.
Avatar n tn That is actually what I always wanted-- to experience NO Pain anymore. We are also the same that we have swollen gum around the back tooth. I am really suffering now. I wanted to ease the pain but I dont know how. Many people are trying to make me avoid tooth extraction..
Avatar n tn The pain when pressure is applied is reminiscent to shifting tooth pain (from braces) that I experienced years ago. I also have minor tooth pain on all of my upper left teeth. Taking a Motrin relieved the pain last evening, but this morning, the swelling was slightly worse. I've had a cold for a while, accompanied by a cough and sore throat.
Avatar f tn I called her the next morning, came in, and she looked at it, prescribed me an antibiotic and a medical mouth wash. The gum are swollen, but since there is no pain in the tooth, she thinks it's just swollen from the prepping of the teeth (and I guess the antibiotic is a precaution), I had a tooth extracted in that area about 2 1/2 weeks ago, and it had heeled fine. Yesterday, my lymph nod also hurt briefly but that's gone today.Now its a day later and it looks and feels about the same.
Avatar f tn I woke up yesterday, Sunday, with my cheek swollen (sinus area right between my nose and tooth #3's root) as well as throbbing pain from the gums around the temp crown. I am extremely worried and confused as to why I am swollen three days after the retreatment without any initial pain or swelling from the retreatment. I do not understand why the crown caused so much pain when it was replaced as a temporary crown and followed with the throbbing pain in my gums.
