Tooth extraction jaw bone

Common Questions and Answers about Tooth extraction jaw bone


Avatar m tn My dentist has called after 4 days for implants I have 3 tooth missing now. Does implant have complication because I hear that some drilling of jaw bone is required for implants. It sounds so frightening. I would appreciate ur opinion.
Avatar f tn what ever happened with your jaw alignment problem?? because 2 months after my bottom wisdom tooth removals my jaw looks very uneven and still i have pain and numbness around the area of the removal. i have yet to get an x ray of my jaw but had x rays of the area where the removal took place. im just confused and dont know what to do.
Avatar n tn My bite was off on tooth 18 which is a tooth with a crown, there was discomfort when I chewed on that site-My dentist confirmed the bite was off, ground it down and then an xray showed an infection in the bone--she suggeted extraction as root canal was not 100% cure-she had a name for the infection but I don't remember the word-so I have been taking atibiotics,as I began to feel a dull throbbing and now the discomfort is gone--should I have it xrayed again before the extraction?
Avatar m tn I had 2 impacted teeth, one was horizontal the other vertical on my lower jaw and the two normal teeth on the top jaw were also removed. Done under general anaesthetic at the same time. Shortly after the op I noticed that behind where i had a vertically aligned impacted tooth (ie lower jawbone) a sharpness forming to my gum and then abotu a week ago it started to protude through.
Avatar m tn One of my lower wisdom teeth left side has a cyst that has destroyed the bone and the tooth is laying horizontal and crushing a nerve with a mm of jaw bone left under it. I have surgery scheduled for next week. the oral surgeon said that I will 100% have nerve damage that will affect the left side of my lip. Is there no hope that the nerve could regenerate itself over time or with my diagnosis is it something that will definitely be numb forever.
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 m tn personally i think my doctor messed up or pulled too much when he took mine out and i have gum, bone, or jaw bone poping out the side of my gum that hurts when its touched sometimes might be the same for you?
Avatar n tn I was forced into it, as the wisdom tooth was impacted, laying sidewise, grafting to the jaw bone that was less on the right than the left, the nerve was wrapped around the roots, and there was a cyst growing over it all, that was getting larger after watching it for 2 years. The surgery was not bad, they did peel my gums away, get the tooth, and reattach my gums. I also had a hole in the back. The os told me that he kept my tooth, as the nerve had worn grooves into the root of the tooth.
Avatar n tn The hole also still seems very deep, as if the bone of the jaw is exposed. I do not want to bother my dentist if it sounds like its healing properly anyway if you could share any information with me that would be great?
Avatar m tn The extraction was a little more complicated because the tooth was fused to the bone; so upon extraction....a larger than normal piece of the bone was removed. It was a moler in the top left (my left). I was given Amoxicillan weeks before the extraction and after. Two weeks later I came back for a checkup and she gave me another Rx for Amoxicillan (as a precaution) and after completing that dose, I was told that the exterior healing looked good but the bone will take months to heal.
Avatar f tn The pain is just a constant throbbing in the extraction site and under my lower jaw bone. I suppose it is a dry socket or an infection, I just don't know what to do about it.
382218 tn?1341185087 When something unexpected happens I would rather be unaware of it until later. Erupted wisdom tooth extraction is a lot easier. Mine were impacted, lying sideways in the gum. I've never regretted the decision to be completely out of it. Then again, the older I get the more I hate the dentist. If I could nap while they do a cleaning, I would - gladly.
230262 tn?1316649534 Im supposed to have the tooth pulled on tuesday and did I mention I always get dry socket with every extraction Ive ever had?? (if you dont know what that is, its a very painful thing where the blood clot doesnt stay in the hole and air hits your nerves and bone causing excrutiating pain). I am going to my regular doctor tomorrow, monday, to beg him for some percocets or something to take for the extraction but i very highly doubt he will oblige.
Avatar f tn I went to the dentist recently and dentist said that I had some decay on my wisdom teeth and that he wanted to pull them to stop infection and spreading he sent me to get an opg xray (I think that's what it's called) and when I went back he told me I had a really bad infection under the tooth in front of my bottom right wisdom tooth and it would need root canal treatment as the infection is really close to the jaw bone...
Avatar n tn 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. He called in an oral surgeon who felt of it and said it was a bony ledge.
Avatar n tn These type of paresthesia can last up to 2 months or longer. 2) Sinus infection 3) infection of the extraction site or bone I would recommend you have a follow up check with your dentist or oral surgeon.
Avatar n tn Upon having a tooth removed the dentist discovered the root had seared to the bone. I went to an oral surgeon who removed the root which left me in excruciating pain for a week. I saw another o/s who advised me an exposed bone had been left which was causing the pain. he romoved the bone and reconstructed the gum around the bone to cover it. it has been a week since this procedure and i am still in pain.
Avatar n tn Information provided is inssuicient to establish a meaningful pain differential diagnosis. However, based on the description, source of pain is not likely from implant. In general, source of pain from implant can be fathfully identified. Seeing an orofacial pain specialist is advised.
Avatar m tn My Mom has been suffering from inner bone exposure, which is taking a long time to heal after she had a critical tooth extraction (at the end of the mouth, near jaw bone joint) 2 months back. During the extraction there was a lot of bleedings and severe pain. She had 2 courses of strong Anitbiotics and lots of pain killer. She does gurgle 4 times a day with warm salt water to wash out any food particle that might remain in the exposed bone portion. She also tried Clove oil.
Avatar n tn after years of complaining about infection in my upper jaw and many tooth extractions later I still have problems. After the last tooth was extracted I became sicker than I felt before. The small pieces of pus that I had occaisionally experienced was now coming almost weekly from the back of my throat. My whole face feels swollen as well as my neck and between my shoulder blades. I have a cough that won't quit . I smell and taste a bad odor almost continually.
Avatar m tn The dental surgeon specializes in wisdom teeth and he told me I will almost definitely have permanent numbness in my jaw and tongue after the surgery since the tooth has been there so long and more than likely has grown in and around the main nerve. He does not want to chance doing the surgery and now has me scared to go to another dental surgeon who may say he is willing to do it. I have been in pain for almost two weeks with it now.
Avatar n tn I was just diagnosed with 4 abcesses and had to have emergency tooth removal of 2 of the 4 teeth. The dentist informed me that the infection had spread into my jaw bone. Should I have it checked further to make sure all infection is gone?
Avatar n tn With your expertise can you tell me by trimming the bone, does that mean trimming the bone that covered the tooth or the jaw bone underneath? My initial guess would be the bone that covers the tooth. But since I can still clearly feel the indentation when I touch my jaw line, I begin to wonder if it’s the jaw bone that she trimmed. Is trimming jaw bone a natural procedure and are there any negative effects like jaw fracture? How would I know if I have jaw facture?
