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 I went for a cleaning appt , when they did x-rays the tooth deteriated in the gumline and bone .An oral surgeon extracted the tooth and did a bone graph due to bone loss. I was never givien antibiotics. After a wk I still had swelling in my face and the site was oozing pus. It was the weekend I had antibiotics of my husbands (enough for 3 days)I was sure this was an infection.I made an appt w/the oral surgeon . My jaw felt dislocated I couldnt chew and could barely open my mouth.
Avatar n tn To make a long story short, I have been to doctors 7 times since tooth extraction for aches face, jaw, neck, ears clogging, upper left arm aching, swollen glands under chin, as well as two chest colds, and also diagnosed with sinusitis. I am now on my 5th round of antibotics in 8 months. And each time I finish I feel good for a week or two and the symptoms return.
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 m tn I have developed what is either a tooth fragment or bone protruding through the inner lower jaw. I have probed it with (of all things) a butter knife and it is very painful when touched. Hard like a bone and white. The pain shoots down into my lower jaw. It is about 4mm long. What could this be?
Avatar f tn He took a couple digital xrays and told me I have an infection in my jaw below #1 molar. The tooth has already had a root canal, many years ago. I've been on monthly Aredia for almost a year (widespread bone mets). My oncologist says extraction is out of the question, so I am being treated with anitbiotics for 8 days to see how it responds. My dentist indicates this is a standard abcess and not ONJ.
Avatar f tn 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... I had no pain in that tooth but I thought back to a few months prior when I was having painful aches in my jaw, it felt like I couldn't open my mouth and so it made sense... Ok I said do it... but then he went ahead and removed the wisdom tooth behind the infected tooth...
Avatar m tn A bony spicule is when after an extraction, the jaw bone is sharp and painful to touch. So when the gums are depressed, the sharp bone may stab the gums. These sharp spots go away by themselves as the bone changes/remodels but you can also perform surgery to remove these bony spicules. As you can see, there are plenty of possibilities but since your dentist said dry socket, I'd go with that explanation.
317787 tn?1473358451 Unfortunately no. A fractured tooth that deep into the bone has to be removed otherwise it'll start to affect your jaw bone and cause more harm. An ideal replacement would be an implant although each situation is different.
Avatar m tn t understand as I was having this pain prior to the extraction, but nobody will answer why I would have the same pain before AND after the extraction. I had to see an emergency dentist at the weekend to have the tooth redressed, she told me in was very inflammed and infected. I saw a dentist 3 days later and she said there is no sign of infection.
784382 tn?1376931040 It may be what we call a bony spicule, which is a small piece of tooth or jaw bone that is left in the socket after the extraction. They can remove it quite quickly and the area will heal up fast.
Avatar f tn I had tooths extraction and bone augmentation on tooth numbers 3,4 and 5 in the upper jaw before 10 days due infection. From the 3D CBCT image before the operation my front tooth number 6, closest to operation point, was completely healthy. I dont feel any pain but I have strange feeling like my tooth number 6 is overactive and can move for a little. I dont want to touch it becouse I am afraid.
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 i under went a tooth extraction 9 days back.the tooth was taken of by driling the bone thats what the doctor said and he put stiches to the gum. for this he gave me brufen 200mg, amoxicilin 500mg and flagyl 400mg, but still im havig sever pain in my lower left jaw where my wisdom tooth was extracted. when i met my doctor to remove the stiches i complained about my situataion, he said its normal as for the bone beeing drilled.
1930934 tn?1323212204 The canines are generally tougher to extra due to the length of the root and the thinness of the bone near it. It may take a few minutes longer to remove the tooth but it probably won't be as "tough" as removing a wisdom tooth going sideways in the jaw.
Avatar n tn If you just remove and not replace the tooth, you will have to deal with the neighboring teeth shifting into this space, the opposing tooth pushing up into this empty space, jaw bone damage and osteoprosis, sinus droppage (if it is an upper tooth in the back) and more complicated situations.
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 f tn I then went to the oral surgeon a week later for a consultation. He said I had bone loss near the wisdom tooth from the infection, which scared me. He told me to wait to take another dose of amoxicillin until the day before the extraction. My jaw is currently hurting right below the lower left wisdom tooth. Does this mean the infection has returned from the first dose of amoxicillin and if so, am I still ok to wait until a week from tomorrow to have the tooth extracted?
Avatar n tn It has been 5 days and I notice a hard area on my jaw bone just under where the tooth was removed. My jaw is sore but this area is hard (like bone) and just smaller than a pencil eraser. What do you think this could be? Thanks for your help. I heard crack during extraction but assume it was ligament. It does not hurt when I clamp teeth down but obviously is sore (as would be expected). I have epilepsy and can't drive. My dentist is about 2.5 hours from me and feel ok.
Avatar f tn The dentist had basically destroyed my jaw and removed 90% of my jaw bone in the area of the extraction. Called the dentist and said this was normal and not to worry about it and to keep my appointment for the bridge a week later. I cancelled and went to another dentist that I trusted.
481349 tn?1226710487 Should I go back to the dentist even though my teeth only seem to hurt in conjunction with the jaw? Or should I see a doctor since the pain is in my ear, jaw, head and a little in my neck? Also, I looked up jaw pain and saw some exercises that can be done to alleviate jaw pain. I did the exercises and the pain in my jaw practically exploded. Also, my jaw feels really fatigued like I have been doing a LOT of chewing when I haven't been really eating any solids because of the pain.
Avatar n tn At the time of extraction, the tooth had pushed the infection down into my jawe bone. The pain has gotten worse eversay sice extraction. I went back to the dentist thinking he could give me a prescription for anitbiotics and he treated it as dry socket. He put some medication down in the hole, which only numbed my mouth and not down into the jaw where it hurts and is swollen. The medication he put in said would only take a few minutes to take effect and after 2 hours it fell out.
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 f tn 8 days ago I had an extraction of tooth 31 done by my general dentist. It was a difficult extraction according to my dentist. She had to cut part of the bone in order to finally remove the molar. She then added a few sutures and I was sent home. I noticed that I could feel a rough patch with my tongue where the bone had been cut on the lingual side of the mandible. Approximately an hour after leaving the office I was changing the gauze for the first time and the suture came out with it.
Avatar f tn In some cases, when you have a very irregular bone next to the extraction site, especially very thin bone, after an extraction, it becomes like an edge of a knife, and will cut through. It happens, and if that is in your case, the dentist or an oral surgeon, needs to round the edge of that bone , it will then heal. It usually appear on extractions of lower wisdom teeth, on the tongue side, the bone there, can be very thin.
603946 tn?1333941839 If the infection spreads rapidly, you can develop an abscess, loss of bone in your jaw as well as pain and swelling. Even if symptoms don't arise gradually, it can spread through the jaw and be symptom free while its destroying your jaw. If there isn't anything wrong with the upper tooth, I would leave it in place I think.
Avatar f tn The dentist told her that almost all of her teeth on her upper jaw will be extracted and every tooth will be bone grafted before they give her dentures. is bone grafting really necessary before dentures or can we get away without it? It will cost us $330.00 per tooth and they need to remove 8 . It's really expensive so is it really necessary or can we do away with it?
