Common Questions and Answers about Tooth extraction questions


Avatar f tn If its healing nicely as he says, there maybe some other issue with another tooth or the extraction may have been somewhat difficult and it may be injured the tooth next to it, which also will take some time to heal. At one month though, most of the healing should've taken place. Any further plans for treatment besides removing that bad tooth?
Avatar n tn -- does that offer options for sealing a hole in the tooth, and replanting the post properly?? Are there any other questions I should be asking the dentist or options I should be exploring before I agree to extraction and grafting... Any perspectives would be much, much, much appreciated!
Avatar m tn The bump does not hurt to be touched and the tooth below it does not hurt. This position is 5 teeth away from the extraction site on top. I have poked at it and it's not able to be popped, it looks like a tiny bone. Here are my questions: Could the bump be caused by the infection that I already have? If not, what is this thing? Thanks!!!
Avatar m tn It was the right upper wisdom tooth. In the same day after my wisdom tooth extraction, I developed nasal congestion in the right nostril. From that day till now, the nasal congestion has been present everyday and it alternates between nostrils from time to time. I've visited the ENT twice. The first time, the doctor did a nose scope and confirmed that my nose was congested. She then prescribed me Nasonex nasal spray to be used for 6 weeks (2 puffs in each nostril, once a day).

Avatar n tn Is it possible to have a temporary tooth put in immediately, or a few days after extraction? I am meeting my future mother-in-law for the first time and I do not want to be toothless, that is why I wanted to take antibiotics and wait a few weeks. What do you think. I appreciate your advise very much.

Avatar m tn Two weeks ago I had tooth #21 extracted. Several days after the extraction I did develop a partial dry socket that has since felt much better and the open hole is shrinking now. As the gums around the tooth socket continue to shrink/heal I have developed a very sore spot on the lip side of my gums 4mm below the edge of the socket.
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 f tn Hello, if you have an infected wisdom tooth should the dentist prescribe antibiotics before extracting the tooth? Also is an panel X-ray the same as a hand held gun X-ray? How dangerous are they? The dental assistant that I had couldn't get a good picture and did like 6 of them and now I am worried.
Avatar n tn About a year ago, I had an apicoectomy to have the abscess removed (choosing it as an alternative to extraction with the aim of keeping the tooth at whatever cost). The surgeon showed me photos of the abscess and said it was a large one. The tooth was fine for about 6 months as well as the nasal pain. But now there is once again a swelling and the site of the swelling feels uncomfortable. Moreover, I have been feeling easy fatigue and little ability to concentrate or focus effort.
Avatar m tn I booked an appointment to see a dentist and within the first 5 minutes of completing the x-ray she said I need root canal or extraction. Immediately, I went back home and booked to see a different dentist at a different dental clinic. The second dentist took an x-ray and told me to come back a week later. When I returned, she said that it's "a big question mark" and that she can attempt to save it by filling it.
Avatar m tn You may consult with a restorative dentist first.If the tooth is indicated for extraction, you can have immediate implant or delayed implant, depending on the clinician's preference and experience.consultation with an implantologist is advised.
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?
Avatar f tn I have hypercementosis(mis spell) and had an extraction of number 4 tooth 6 weeks ago. I'm experience a lot of pain and the only thing that helps is my finger in place of the missing tooth. I've had two course of antibotics. The area has been checked twice and they thought I might need a root canal in tooth number 5. Specialist checked with no reaction to hot, cold and pressure so she prescribed oral rinse. I looked and the area is white but doctor said that it's healing.
Avatar n tn I intend to extract my molar tooth. I am 63 yrs, Can i take the aspirin and do the tooth extraction or take after the extraction. Your advice will be much appreciated. thank you.
Avatar f tn I have never had such pain before after a tooth extraction. Why are my gum lines feeling sore. It is no where near the tooth extraction?
Avatar f tn why have i been prescribed anti biotics after a bit of dry socket after a tooth extraction even though there is no infection as such.
Avatar n tn if it can be moved, it is most likely a bone spicule or small sliver of tooth that may have chipped off during the extraction. It should be pushed up and out during the healing process. If you think it's intact bone poking through, see the dentist who did the extraction.

Avatar m tn Hi I would like to know the steps of a tooth extraction procedure, what the best dentist company is (ex. Neighbor etc.) and, if a tooth extraction will hurt.
Avatar f tn s my wisdom tooth ,left lower jaw n the tooth is totally decayed n extraction is the only thing to do.Dentist prescribed amoxicillin n paracetamol 650mg for the pain . Said that tooth extraction will be done only after delivery . But I'm in so much pain even after taking medicines. Is there no safe anesthesia that can be used on me during extraction ?
Avatar n tn I am just going through your q&a here. Your questions are quite technical. The bottom line remains - if the tooth can be restored to near 100% with a crown or onlay, it is likely your best choice. In the end you need to be evaluated by a qualified restorative dentist who can fix broken teeth. You mentioned the pulp is exposed previously.
Avatar n tn infected teeth are very difficult to numb. usually a course of antibiotics before the extraction works well. have the tooth checked it might just be a case of needing the root canal redone and an extraction is not necessary.
Avatar f tn m scared of extraction because of what I read in the internet, that there is a possibility of sepsis after a tooth extraction. Please enlighten me!
Avatar m tn what happeneds if i dont get the extraction, im trying antibotics for now! and say i get an extraction what do i do after that? can i get an implant the same day! i want to finish school with a full pair of teeth...
Avatar m tn Unfortunately the sinus infection continued after the extraction and to make matters worse the tooth next to the extracted tooth is now giving me pain. X-rays of this tooth (last tooth before the wisdom) now show possible degradation in one of its roots. My questions are: Should I try another antibiotic to battle the sinusitis (eg Amoxycillin/Clavulanate 875/125mg) ? Could the sinus infection be causing a problem in the root of a perfectly good tooth? Will a CT scan help?
Avatar f tn Is it safe to have a tooth extraction while you are under certain medications? I am currently taking eltoxin 50mcg (levothyroxin sodium) in the morning and depakote 500mg (divalproex sodium) in the evening. I am for schedule to have tooth extraction this weekend.
