Tooth abscess in kids

Common Questions and Answers about Tooth abscess in kids


Avatar n tn So we brought her in again and the doctor found an abscess in her mouth and the tooth that hurt her in August was a bit grey. We went right to the dentist and he said the nerve was dead, she needed a root canal. Her jaw pain is almost gone but she is still extremely fatigued,and has shortness of breath even when doing stairs. She had bloodwork done and her c-reactive protein is elevated. She had an EKG and it showed left atrium enlarged. We are waiting to get in to see the cardiologist.
Avatar f tn injury or trauma to the face; malnutrition or obesity and even tooth abscess. If cold compress do not work, raise the head of the bed or use extra pillows to reduce facial swelling.Further evaluation should also be done to rule out the differentials mentioned. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn I know at this age there is alot that is going on in our lives. Kids, careers etc and we tend to not focus on ourselves but on everyone else. Scary thought to think I might not be around for my kids and that I actually am doing this to myself. I just wish I could pinpoint the "IT" factor. Thanks to everyone for their posts-least I am not going lala.
2186126 tn?1384961026 She had been struggling with seizures for a year and a half before she suddenly developed a tooth root abscess and was unable to heal from. Sadly, it forced me to put her to sleep w/ in a week. Her teeth didn't seem so bad, though I wanted to have them cleaned last year to be on top of her oral care. However, because of her seizures, my vet didn't want to put her through dental surgery/ anesthesia; this was a mistake. She should have referred me to an animal hospital where they can resuscitate.
Avatar m tn I have had a tooth abscess twice..same problem each time and have only used ibuprofen for pain relief and it works as well as any opiate.Just take prilosec to help the stomach and don't go over 2400mg/24 hrs. I mean to go to the dentist but each time after 3 or 4 days the abscess breaks and everything gets better. I know I have to go sometime.
685173 tn?1340220597 As soon as it was time to roll over and get some sleep, I started to worry about him. I googled this eye problem called carnassial abscess. Its when a root in the dog's upper molar tooth can become infected and it caused swelling underneath the eye. The only way to cure it is to remove the tooth, which can cost anywhere from $100-$600 (as estimated on the net). That would pretty much be most, if not all of what I have left in my bank account.
Avatar m tn About 6 months after it was completed i noticed a little pain that went in a couple of days, this has repeated every few months, I thought at first this was a result of inflaming the area where the work had been done, as i am a habitual tooth grinder in my sleep, rather than it being any kind of infection. (i thought you paid for root canal so you didn't get infected!!) However last time it happened (4 months ago) i noticed a little bit of facial swelling before the pain finally went away.
1742220 tn?1331360327 I was like ok you got me and then I was LOL all over the place she's funny she let a tooth rot in her mouth and now she got abscess can you say Vicodin ... yeah.
198506 tn?1251160515 So, consequently, I am ashamed to say that I have not been to the dentist (except once for an abscess) in over 20 years. I am now 40. I brush maybe 4 times a day, floss 2x/day,and rinse with Listerine 2x/day. I have very large teeth, I still have my wisdom teeth.
579258 tn?1250652943 Many of you are aware I have not been online as much lately and it is due to some escalating personal, financial and health issues. My new motto is .. “Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength.” ~ Anonymous On an annual scale of stress and life events .. mine is off the chart .. however, it would do no good for me or to others to give in and completely fall apart.
293157 tn?1285877039 I didn't want to wait until Monday with this pain. According to the dentist, I had a bad filling, which lead to an abscess tooth. The infection spread to another tooth, and now it's working it's way to another. For some reason I didn't feel it until it was already too late to save the 2 teeth. I'm getting them pulled ASAP because it could lead to bone lose, or other bad issues, and I don't need that right now.
Avatar f tn I didn't even know I had ever had epstein barr to be able to have a flare up however in December I had to take Amoxicillin for what they though was a sinus infection but turned out was an abscess in my tooth. After a week of that dentist switched me to Clindamyacin. I've read that it's known that Amoxicillin can induce a flare up of ebv. Didn't think to test myself for ebv in December. Just though it was the abscess and antibiotics kicking my butt.
Avatar f tn Hi just got back from Neurology and they said he has Aspergers-no great shock as i have done a lot of research and apparently when you reach puberty these things tend to become more noticable, they said it is possibly migraines causing his fuzzy head but he also has a reoccurring tooth abscess and that because he is so sensitive that could be making him feel very unwell, he has a needle phobia so has to go to hospital to have the tooth out oh what fun!
620923 tn?1452919248 But that can be explained du to the fact that I wasn't home in the last 2 weeks. After I left the hospital my mum and DH would not let me alone with the kids. So after driving 7h to get to my mum I stayed with her and the kids for a full week. And after that my DH, kids and I had to drive an other 5h to go see the NS (opposite directions). So we had to stay at my in-laws for 3 days. I never experience a bed as uncomfy as they're guess bed!
Avatar f tn Well you have made me think...he does have a reoccurring tooth abscess we are waiting to have the tooth removed i don`t know if that would cause all the other ailments but i do know no other child with Aspergers seems to be as unwell as mine...
Avatar m tn My neice just came up and said that she would be able to let me keep the pc till about 2oclock tomorrowas she hasnt got her computer class until the afternoon and i only stay 5mins away from her school so im very glad about that, shes my brothers daughter and he is the only one in my family that i get on with and his kids would never call me names, i get on very well with them so thats cheered me up a bit.
Avatar f tn Many adults with headaches started having them as kids -- in fact, 20% of adult headache sufferers say their headaches started before age 10, and 50% report their headaches started before age 20. How Common Are Headaches in Children and Adolescents? Headaches are very common in children and adolescents. In one study, 56% of boys and 74% of girls between the ages of 12 and 17 reported having had a headache within the past month.
Avatar n tn You didn't need to test in the first place. Have you ever seen a lap dancer in her second trimester dance, let alone, let you suck on her nipples?
Avatar m tn Right now the area just above and behind the tooth in question is very painful to the touch, and I have pain spreading. I plan to go to a university emergency clinic as soon as I can. i am very worried that i may have osteomylitis or something bad going on. If I'm not having a fever, just the pain, does this seem likely? Also I was wondering, will the routine x-rays they willl do for me ever miss osteomylitis or something similar?
572651 tn?1531002957 still don't feel like eating. See how pain goes; if abscess doesn't clear up, must get refill of antibiotics in a couple days. Thursday, take Fluffy in to my apartment so my friend can cat-sit. Pick up some prescriptions. Friday, fly to Sacramento, watch WNBA game, Sacramento Monarchs vs. Seattle Storm. Saturday, find something fun to do. Sunday, WNBA, Sacramento Monarchs vs. Detroit Shock. Hope and pray that trigeminal neuralgia doesn't flare up, so I can have a decent week.
228015 tn?1223696978 The nurse said all my symptoms sound exactly thyroid related. ANYWAY....I had to go in for some blood work, and a B-12 shot. I did not see the doc but that doesnt matter I just want to feel better. One thing did bother me and I dont know why I did this but I went to the restroom with my chart so I could look at it, and in BIG letters it said on a page..ANXIETY and wants to be seen but you are BOOKED TO THE MAX....
Avatar f tn I'm finding it hard to keep myself busy. I really picked the wrong week ha! I have an abscess on my tooth. Grim! And serious pms! But I'm doing it. Hope you are all ok!

393685 tn?1425816122 Went in to see my GI doctor after having an abscess in the left buttock (not fun). Doctor: Any other issues going on" Me: Yes, I apparently have an abscess in my left buttock that I am pretty sure I developed in your hospital when you did the colonoscopy. Doctor: No, you can't get it from that procedue.
Avatar n tn As for teeth, my DD cut her first tooth I want to say around 5-6 months. She is now 6 and everyone in her class has lost at least one tooth, many have lost several. I know you shoudln't compare, but she doesn't even have one loose tooth in her head!!! I have mentioned it to her pedi who seems unconcerned. But come on, 6 with no loose teeth? Anyone dealt with this?
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi Friends! Welcome all Tramadol warriors. We're all very glad to see you. Please come in and share.
Avatar f tn Not super great run a marathon - or walk up too many stairs, but I put my kids to bed this morning and worked all day. I have a few t3 in my pocket in case I feel woozy when I go to my work tonight then pick up the kids, but so far, no need. How is it going with you? I do think I turned the corner, it was HELL day 1,2,3 but ok now. hang in there.
Avatar f tn (money often does that) lol Hang in there girl. What ever you do don't cave in on cravings. It would only make you feel worse.
660300 tn?1224793961 Hello everyone. I had a tooth and wisdom tooth removed 4 days ago and my nerve was in the middle of the root of my wisdom tooth. Needless to say the nerve was stretched so i have numbness in my chin and lip on the left side along with my gum. The weird thing is the left corner of my mouth is not numb. The surgeon stated on time would tell. I was already taking B-12 so was happy to read that it might help. i do have the itching creep crawly, burning sensation.
Avatar m tn One of the causes of maxillary sinusitis is a tooth abscess that has leaked the infection into the maxillary sinus. The teeth may be X-rayed to find this. • Ethmoid sinuses. If infection occurs, you may get puffy eyes and pain between them. The sides of your nose may get tender to the touch, your nose may get stuffy, and you won’t be able to smell so well. You may also get a splitting headache, felt most intensely in the forehead. • Sphenoid sinuses.
