Swollen gums root canal

Common Questions and Answers about Swollen gums root canal


Avatar f tn If a tooth has been infected for a long period of time the bacteria m ay become resistant to treatment. Swelling could be because of faulty method of root canal or re-infection of the treated tooth. For effective treatment of swelling, the real cause must be diagnosed .You will need anti-inflammatory medications and antibiotics. See your dentist and get yourself checked. Do keep me posted. Best luck and regards!

Avatar n tn There's no pain in or around the crown or the swollen gums, little discomfort, just a little swollen area about the size of a small pea, that's covering about half of the tooth with the crown. As far as I know it wasn't brought on by eating hot food. I've tried flossing in case there was food or a popcorn shell or something stuck there, but I can't feel anything, and nothing flossed out. It bleeds a lot when I brush my teeth, but is fine otherwise.
Avatar m tn I realize you can't diagnos me over the Internet, but what would be the likely cause of my symptoms? Infection of the root canal tooth? - root canal tooth hurts when touched or tapped - gums around tooth are inflammed and hurt when touched - left-hand side of face is swollen - no fever (at least not yet) Thank you for helping.
Avatar n tn It felt great after the root canal, but a few weeks later it got sensitive and a little swollen and red on the gums between the teeth. After I got the crown, it did feel like the fracture was better but it didn't solve the problem. I moved to a new city and my new dentist changed the neighboring crown, which also didn't solve the problem.
Avatar f tn I had a root canal on bottom-right back tooth (#30) on Thursday morning. 4 hours after the procedure, all was ok -- a little pain, but I took some vicodin and motrin. In the fifth hour after the procedure, I started swelling. I phoned my endodontist, who called in Penicillin VK 500 mg for me. I am wondering if the fact that I smoked a cigarette had something to do with the infection/swelling?
Avatar n tn I just had a root canal done tuesday by a very experienced dentist. orginally, I thougt the cavity might eb able to be drilled out, then crowned, so we did this first. It started throbbin 2 days later, so I went back and had the root canal done. Last night I woke up in TREMENDOUS pain. I could feel my heartbeat throbbing underneath that tooth. I took some pain killers which kicked in shortly after. I called the dentist this morning and got some antibiotics.
Avatar n tn She finally sent me to an endodontist to have a root canal. The pain continued, the gums started swelling and the burning in the gums persisted,so I went back to endodontist to have x-rays. She didn't see anything wrong and told me give it some more time to heal. My mouth has chronic pain and I'm getting headaches, it feels as though my face is swollen and I'm unable to sleep.
Avatar n tn I had a root canal yesterday around noon. We had to schedule the visit last minute, because I was in so much pain from an abscess. I was prescribed Penicillin VK, and have been taking it, along with Ibuprofen as needed (and it's needed!) to try and manage the pain. The pain is getting hard to manage at times, though. Sometimes it'll come in waves, and it seems to get worse when I lay down.
Avatar m tn shaped roots and it took an extended period of time to complete root canal. Endo said no signs of infection just a lot of inflamation. She did say the roots tried to "heal themselves" and closed up on her while doing the root canal so she had to work a lot longer on my canals. She did used a miscroscope the entire time so I am hoping no missed canals. I had horrific shooting pains after root canal and tooth was very sensitive to hot and very cold.
Avatar f tn although I felt I was pretty good treating root canals, as technology advanced and root canal microscopes entered the field, I began to refer most molar root canals to an endodontist who had one. I simply felt that because they had the technology (which is expensive and requires specific training) they were able to do the procedure better than I could.
Avatar n tn Hello Ive had a root canal treatment on my molar ( after wisdom tooth extraction on an impacted tooth) and it was two weeks today since the final rc treatment. One week ago , I started to experience pain (not severe but enough for me to try to prevent eating on this part of the mouth) on this tooth again. What had gone wrong? I though the nerves are dead and that it wil be ok and y am i experienicng more complications after all the rc treament? I am lost for answers.
Avatar n tn i had my lower right 1 molar and 1 wisdom teeth root canal done two weeks before. also got one molar removed at the same side.. for last three days i feel a severe pain in my wisdom tooth... i couldnt bite or chew ... its a deep sharp pain... also noticed that my gums are swollen and looking black... even the gums of removed tooth is swollen and bleeding... why is this happening.. do i ve to redo the RTC again.. and why the removed teeth gums are also not healed yet..
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.
Avatar n tn Help! I had a root canal a few months ago. Pain improved - but returned a few weeks later. DDS reluctantly re-opened the tooth, removed (gutta percha) filling and found what he thought was more live tissue, which he removed. This time, he left the canals unfilled, but closed tooth with a temp. filling. Pain subsided, but again returned a few weeks later. The endo suspected fracture, although no sign of tissue granulation or other visual indication of fracture.
Avatar n tn the office prescribe cephalexin and said the doc was out of town but would be back Tuesday and i would need a root canal. my thing is that today i woke up with my cheek even worse and i was wondering is there is anything i can do to make the swelling go down.
Avatar n tn he then did 1st stage root canal (thats what the letter says) and told me he removed the nerve, he then put something in which tasted like peppermint and tempory filled it, after the injection wore down i experiance more pain than i did before going. so i went back and they gave me some IBUPROFEN to take.
Avatar n tn About a week ago the whole left side of my face swelled up, so I went to an emergency visit to the endodontist where I got a root canal done. About 2 days after that the bottom part of my jaw, over by my tooth started swelling up and now it is hard and tender to the touch. I went in again, and he put a tube in my gums to help the draining of the infection, but he said he didn't get much drainage when he first attempted. I'm concerned on what it is, seeing as how my dentist is unsure.
Avatar n tn I'm struggling with tooth #19. I do go to the dentist every six months and I've had lots of work done and on top of all of that, I'm a dental coward. Believe me I physically shake when I go in and I can't control it. So of course I get gas and yes I do relax, but it's almost as if I'm under because the gas just completely puts me in another zone. This is kind of the chrono of what has happened: Dec 28 - cleaning & xrays (4 bitewings, first periapical). Talked with dentist about #19.
Avatar m tn It turns out it's the tooth next to the last one I had root canal. So i had three root canals in 1 and a half months. And I still have pain in other teeth. Does anyone out there know if this is normal? to have so many in such a short amount of time? It's been soooo painful. Help!
Avatar m tn But my dentist braced my front four teeth and declared i dont need root canal. This pain started shortly thereafter, but the pain is on the right side of my teeth. Is this serious? Im going to the dentist on monday, Do i need to worry?
Avatar n tn i called the dentist and he said thT it meant i needed root canal and said that fluids that could leak before were clogged now by the crown and they werebacking up creating the swolenness. I went to an endodontist immediately and he said that I had an infection and gave me amoxicilin and ibiuuporfen, etc. The pain is still horrible regardless of analgesics and my face and gum are still totally swollen.
Avatar m tn Two years ago I had a root canal done on an abcessed tooth. Over the past two years it has become sensitive from time to time, mostly when chewing food. A couple days ago, my gums between the tooth with the root canal and another became inflamed, nothing I havent dealt with before. The next mornig, I was awakened by severe pain in the "canaled" tooth. I went to a local dentist, ;he took some x rays, and found nothing unusual.
Avatar n tn Tsang was correct, and my dentist will have to go back into the tooth. During the root canal, on the second canal he was "doing", my dentist said something to the effect that he came to a 'dead end'. I asked in my follow-up appointment, "Did that mean you came to the end of the root and went into the gums?" and he said no, he just couldn't get any further.
Avatar n tn 8 because original root canal wasn't done properly and now needs to be redone. I am taking her to get the root canals finished for both teeth on Wednesday. Could all this have been caused from the beaching? or poorly done root canal?
Avatar m tn The dentist again replaced the filling but stated if after a week he was still experiencing pain he needed to go to an endodontist for a root canal. 5 days ago he went in and had the root canal. Now he is experiencing pain in the jaw and a migraine. All of these procedures have maxed out his dental benefits so we cannot continue this game where he goes in and has an expensive procedure performed for it not to work.
363110 tn?1340924019 Thing is, he didn't do a root canal because he didn't wanna take more xrays. (it's a tiny little machine, with VERY MINIMAL xrays) They put 2 lead aprons over me too, so.. no worries. Fast forward to today, well, my mouth is KILLING me, I'm out of tylenol3, the gum area is swollen, and even tho my gums don't hurt anymore, my tooth and jaw kills when I bite down. OUCH. I cant bite down, I can't chew, nothing. it HURTS...
1176334 tn?1266347704 where they cut open the gums. This dds said that the root canal looks perfect though, he said its just the infection in my bone thats gonna be the kicker! this stupid tooth has caused me trouble for 7 months now...that dds back in my old home town should have done the root canal last june but "NOOO THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH HER FILING"...2 diff dds told me w/o a doubt it needed a root canal after i quit seeing her...
