Common Questions and Answers about Tooth extraction of abscessed tooth


317787 tn?1473358451 Needed a root canal due to abscessed tooth, went to endodontist, he did a two part root canal, then said the tooth might need to be pulled. In shock, I went to Dentist who said Endo perforated tooth, in other words cracked it in half. He says tooth must be extracted. Is there something that could fix the crack in the bottom of tooth in between roots?
Avatar n tn I was in the EXACT same position yesterday that you were and the dentist pulled my abscessed tooth. The dentist WILL pull the tooth if it is an emergency situation so you dont have to be completely rid of the infection for them to pull it. The reason they dont is because it takes a LOT to get you numbed up on local anesthetic before they do pull it. The most painful part for me was when they numbed me up and drained the abscess.
Avatar f tn I had an extraction a few years ago while preg. It was painful, but not nearly as painful as the abscessed tooth. And afterwards I was really thankful because the pain from all the excess blood in the gums, etc really made me miserable.
Avatar m tn Yes, its the infection spreading in the cheek area, pinching the muscles and causing a problem with the movement of the jaw. How many day of antibiotics has it been now? One finger is quite narrow. How's the swallowing and breathing?
Avatar m tn Im sure all this discharge (phlegm) that i am constantly having to clear from my throat is coming from the back of my nose (sinus related) which is caused by the abscessed upper molar tooth. All my symptons are on the same side as the abcessed tooth.
Avatar n tn patient with regard to sepsis or even SBE following extraction of an apparently abscessed tooth, or is this normal in these patients? I am uncertain whether to call his dentist or if it should just be allowed to run its course like a cold in a sober, relatively healthy person.
Avatar n tn re specially trained to do root canals and determine the restorability of a tooth. I generally refer my patients to an endodontist to determine the extent of cracks in teeth as they have mircoscopes that can magnify the tooth. If there is significant bone loss in an area where the crack leads, then it can indicate the crack is below the gum line quite deep into the bone. If a crack is deep, the bone around the crack will die and that's probably what hes seeing.
Avatar n tn i posted before. i had an abscessed tooth and the abscess spread into my cheek. my dentist put me on keflex but after 10 days there was still noticable swelling in my cheek. so now the dentist has put me on a stronger antibiotic. when i woke up this morning i felt a very large "bubble" on my inside cheek.
Avatar f tn Extraction of offending tooth ASAP is the best approach to solve your problem.
Avatar f tn I recently went to a dentist who said I had an abscessed tooth under a 3 unit fixed bridge. He wants to pull out the affected tooth. However, I'm concerned that if he does so he might damage the "good" teeth alongside of it that make up abutments. I put the procedure "on hold" because this same dentist tried to remove an abscessed tooth from an upper fixed bridge I had & "destroyed" the tooth next to it because it cracked during the procedure.
Avatar n tn Periodontal disease is common in dogs over the age of 3.....If there is a loose tooth, your dog has some form of disease..... First, you need to schedule a dental cleaning w/extraction if necessary. If there is an infection going on, antibiotics will be used.... After that, you need to brush their teeth if possible. I personally use a product called" Petzlife" gel. I love it! Left untreated, periodontal disease will cause Heart related problems in the future!
Avatar f tn t for the extraction, I would have guessed it was a sinus infection in which movement of the head (or moving around) causes the buildup of fluid in the sinus to cause pain as it moves around. It sounds like the swelling/soreness is from the injection. The fluid from the anesthetic probably stretched the tissue out and combined with the effort to keep open while they're extracting it may be causing that discomfort.
Avatar n tn My simple tooth extraction has turned into a bill of over $1000.00 and 2 1/2 weeks of unnecessary pain,and I am furious. She will be receiving a letter from me this week about all this. :( I believe that I'm on the road to recovery now, but it didn't have to be this way at all. Again, thank your for your concern.
Avatar f tn I know whatever this issue is is not an immune disease because this all occured when my tooth abscessed. Now that the tooth is pulled I have a consistent throbbing pain, the tissue in the socket is yellowish grey, and the pain shoots to my ear which will eventually lead to a very irritating headache. I do not have any cold symptoms. I have noticed that it seems like the socket is taking a VERY long time to heal. It doesn't seem like it's closing at all.
Avatar m tn I have an abscessed tooth and last week I went to the dentist for the first time in years. My face was really REALLY swollen and after a CT scan I was prescribed antibiotics. I took the last one this morning after a 7 day dose and, although minimal, I still have some facial swelling. It is uncomfortable and I can feel it but it does not hurt. The dentist told me today that they are unable to help, I will need oral surgery to take the tooth out under GA.
Avatar n tn Depending on the general health of the dog, a small dog weighing 45 pounds can live 15 years or more! Ask your vet about making payments to have the abscess taken care of. If you are considering putting him down because of an abscessed tooth I can tell you that most vets would sternly recommend against it, and it probably will not cost you a lot more to have the tooth taken care of than it would to have him euthanized. PLEASE consider having the tooth doctored.
Avatar n tn i think i may have an abscessed tooth but im not sure.i had a wisdom tooth come in a week ago and now i have a bump on the gum next to it i was wondering if it could be the tooth causing swollen gum or an abscessed tooth.i have really bad cavietys and have an apointment set for the 15th if it is abscessed will that be soon enough?Can you die from an abscessed tooth?
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 m tn My cheek right above the tooth and next to my nostril has also swelled up. The tooth is perfectly fine, no decay of any kind. The gum above the tooth is also perfectly fine. I had an abscess tooth before (oddly the exact same tooth just on the opposite side) about 2 years ago. The constant pressure feeling is the same but the swelling looks slightly different. When tapping my abscessed tooth there was incredible pain but now when i tap this tooth the pain hardly changes.

Avatar n tn I have an abscessed tooth and its in my gums on bottom, been on antibiotics, painkiller for five days, swollen and big lump on jaw. Dentist wont lance it because it still hasn't come up to a head yet. Should I go to ER, or just give it more time?
Avatar m tn I feel scared after reading that leaving an abscessed tooth untreated for years can cause health issues related to the brain like brain abscesses. I have a tooth that has a very deep cavity and has been abscessed many times and I think the root of the tooth is dead because I don't feel any pain anymore. now, I'm very afraid that I am in danger and I feel like I am going to die please can you give me any advice.
Avatar n tn Hello, Over the past month i have been dealing with pain that moves from the right side of my teeth (top and bottom), to the front of my face, to the side of my head (ear and right above it), then to the back of my head and down my neck at times. I consulted a dentist and he assured me that my teeth looked fine and that i most likely have sensitive teeth. I began to brush with sensodyne and it seemed to help a bit. The pain comes and goes but has been pretty intense recently.
Avatar m tn At the time of extraction, the dentist told me I need have bone graft and it should be done at the time of tooth extractio or at least within two weeks after the extraction. But I did not follow his advice and just simply had the tooth extracted. My question is if I am to have an implant later, can I still have bone graft at that time?
