Teeth extraction jaw

Common Questions and Answers about Teeth extraction jaw


Avatar m tn And now before I came across this I did some research about it and I have found alot of things of people having the same problems with the dislocating jaw. But my absolute main question is this due to the extraction of the wisdom teeth?? Like from opening my mouth a little too wide that they done damage??? As the surgeon said himself my teeth were the most difficult he had encountered removing.
1809287 tn?1316744936 about a week ago i had a tooth extraction done on my very back molar on my lower right side. the extraction went pretty well, although quite uncomfortable. afterwards, i felt somewhat okay, but about two to three days after i started to feel this uncomfortable pain in my lower jaw bone. the pain is felt in my jaw, my throat, my temple, my neck and my ear. i am having constant headaches.
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 n tn It was healing ok but 5 days ago while biting a sandwich my jaw made a loud popping sound and since then i am not able to open my mouth more than an inch. i also have alot of swelling. What coul this be?
481349 tn?1226710487 I recently had a wisdom tooth pulled from my top left side. The area has healed correctly and seemed fine. Now my whole left side of my face is in severe pain. Putting orajel on the teeth on that side doesn't help at all. The pain stops for a half an hour if I place orajel on the jaw joint inside my mouth. The pain is becoming unbearable and interrupting my sleep since I am up every half hour to put on more orajel and taking tylenol.
Avatar m tn I have been suffering with a pain in the left eye cheek and jaw for the last 25 years. I just been for a private consultation and told I have to live with the pain. 10 years ago I was diagnosed with Tempoporamandubluar joint disorder. I would be grateful if anyone has experienced a similar problem and would be grateful for any help from anyone who is experiencing similar problems...
Avatar f tn I have braces on my upper jaw and I just got my lower wisdom tooth extracted, its been 5 days, the swelling did go down but I can notice that my face has changed. Do extraction of wisdom tooth make the face fat ? Thnk you.
Avatar n tn still have severe pain in jaw and ear after surgical extraction of two jaw teeth. had a dry socket 2 weeks ago but still have severe pain and nausea.
Avatar m tn The strange thing is that it has been 4 months since the last extraction and now the teeth next to the extraction sites are hurting just like the previously removed teeth but they too look normal and my gums look healthy. I still feel run down but I can take a simple antibiotic (such as a 5 day Z-Pak) and I feel VERY energetic again but it only lasts for about 2 weeks tops.
Avatar f tn I have 3 teeth in need of extraction and one in need of a root canal. It ***** to have to wait.
Avatar m tn Dear Patient Yes, if you do have TMJ dysfunction extraction of the wisdom teeth could exacerbate the problem. Let the oral surgeon know, sometimes they will use a prop which will allow you to bite on it and at the same time not have you stretch to far open. Secondly the x-ray you had done probably was a Panorex x-ray which I would not consider as a proper x-ray for diagnosing TMJ dysfunction. In order for a proper diagnosis of your TMJ condition I would recommend seeing a TMJ expert.
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 n tn As you may guess, after more than five to seven years of this, my jaw and teeth are really screwed up and there is still pressure in my ears. My jaw joints hurt, i can pop both of them similar to cracking a finger knuckle, and it feels like there is fluid in both sides. In addition to this, my two lower middle front teeth have worn through the enamel and now have a chisel like sharp edge on top. Because the edges are thin, they have chipped and are now serrated like a steak knife.
Avatar m tn I was in pain in my whole jaw, inside my ear, bottom and top teeth were hurting/aching badly. I went to see the dentist and she prescribed low dose antibiotics for 5 days.The surgery did some interim treatment to relieve my pain and drilled the nerve out. Although tender around the area of the 'bad' tooth at the base of the gum the pain did subside. Two days later I had the tooth extracted. As soon as the anaesthetic had worn off I was in incredible pain, no pain killers touched it.
784382 tn?1376931040 It is also possible, that this is the jaw bone, or a piece of the jaw bone which has been hurted during extraction. It really needs to be checked, it is good that you are going to the dentist tomorrow i think. Me i also will, just like my aunt did it. I will go to Hungary to the empireclinic, she - my aunt - was very satsfied with the treatment and especially with the prices and the quality she got there.. I'll see it soon as well, if you want to, just check their site!
Avatar m tn A week has gone by from all four impacted wisdom teeth were surgically removed. My jaw on the right side feels like it is locked. I can only open my jaw 1 inch. When I try to open it farther I get excruciating pain and it won't open. Left side is fine. I was very swollen the first three days after surgery. What should I do?
Avatar n tn The TMJ symptoms could be related to trauma from the surgery and is one of the risks involved with extraction of wisdom teeth. You should have your dentist or the oral surgeon thoroughly examine you jaw joints.
4922507 tn?1361076248 The tooth taken out was a baby tooth - I have congenitally missing 2nd premolars on my lower jaw. The extraction seems to go straightforward although i needed a double dose of local anaesthetic, as the first lot didnt seem to take even after about 20 mins waiting. all was well at first. However since the extraction I am suffering from insomnia and just recently I have felt a pain increase.
Avatar n tn Also, try a bruxism splint as you may be clenching your teeth causing the jaw tightness and sensitive teeth. If they are wisdom teeth, take them out. If not, a second opinion would be good for peace of mind. If the bruxism splint stops the pain by day 5, you need a nightguard or dentist made bruxism splint, and may not need the extraction.
Avatar f tn Hi, Actually, evolution has shortened the lower jaw, thereby making wisdom teeth (or the third molar) obsolete. Many people today are born without them at all. Those of us that have them, if they are crooked or impacted, it's recommended for removal. They can have a direct relationship to the alignment of your other teeth if they have no room to erupt. Not to mention the possibility of jaw bone problems with a tooth trying to erupt directly into it.
Avatar f tn 5 g, bld sugar is normal, no sharp teeth,no teeth extraction on left lower jaw, dental hygiene is good. no addictions or spicey food.
Avatar f tn xrays were taken...I have two abscessed teeth next to each other...one is scheduled for extraction, the second one for root canal...I was prescribed amoxicillin 500mg and Tylenol 3...I tablet ev 6 hours as needed...I came home took my first dose..took a nap and woke up with a swollen lower jaw...right around the area that is giving me problems...pain is getting worse...swelling is about the same...can't sleep...too much pain...I just took the 3rd dose of the pain meds an antibiotics....
784382 tn?1376931040 the healing seems to be fine ,but there is a piece of my jaw that is sticking out, it hurts to touch, and almost seems like its trying to break throuhg my gums, it seems to be a sharp piece....is this normal??.....i keep reading the stories about them leaving a peice of tooth in there....or something..... maybe it need to be shaved down??.... i go back to the dentist tomorrow to get another extraction im going to ask about it then as well....
Avatar f tn I have failing root canals on lower molars on either side of my jaw. The root canaled teeth are now completely reinfected as confirmed by my endodontist. The larger problem is how long I was aware of the reinfection without seeking professional help. It has been at least two years that the root canals have been reinfected. About 6 months ago the glands in my neck swelled directly below the teeth on either side. My face swelled on one side. I still didn't get it taken care of at that point.
Avatar n tn It had a cavity which had broken down to my gumline. The dentist just did a simple extraction, no surgery. The shot of novacane went so deep into my gum that I had soreness for weeks afterwards in my jaw bone. I have had earaches and jaw pain on that same side ever since. Our hospital offered a free oral clinic a couple of weeks ago and I went to have a swollen place under my tongue looked at. A dentist there found a knot on the very back of my jawbone that he said felt abmornal.
