Tooth extraction smell

Common Questions and Answers about Tooth extraction smell


Avatar n tn Hi Annie! I too had a bottom left molar extracted about 6 weeks ago. The tooth was originally a root canal gone bad. I started having this awful smell radiating from my mouth & nose about 2 months b4 I had the extraction done (this is what lead me to the defaulted root canal in the 1st place). After having the tooth pulled, the smell & the slight pain I had had went away. Then 3 days later, the smell came right back, as if it had never left.
Avatar n tn As I posted b4, the prob I had with the smell was coming from granulation tissue (scar tissue), that had formed in the open space of my cracked tooth. There is no telling how long I lived with the smell, as I could not smell it, and even after the smell became so prominent, no one would be honest with me about it. The only reason I even found out about the problem, is because I'm smart enough to know when people are "attempting" to talk about me over my head!!!

Avatar n tn My husband has had a severe nose infection(following a tooth extraction) for 3 months. He gets a strong smell that comes through his nose. He has lost his sence of smell and taste. He has been on three different medication with no relief. What can he do next.
Avatar m tn About 2 weeks ago I had an impacted wisdom tooth removed. I still have pain in the area where the tooth was removed. I'm not sure if I have a dry socket or not. I don't smell any bad odor from the area. The tooth next to where the wisdom tooth was has had a root canal, so I don't know if that tooth is the problem. I'm wandering if maybe I might have an infection going on.
Avatar f tn I suffered damage to a tooth which resulted in a breakage which at the time I swallowed. My dentist carried out a massive filling but I then went onto have severe pain and a smell everytime I breathed in through my nose.A new dentist said that the tooth should of been removed and prescribed anti-biotics. The smell still hasnt gone which is worrying, and when I blow my nose some really green phlemn results(which doesnt come up by coughing).
Avatar n tn Last Tuesday i had tooth # 2 removed ( Upper ) and next day i came down with a major Migraine and few days later my body started to hurt and nose got congested , i went to the Dr. who said this was a sinus infection. I searched online and did not find anything suggesting a sinus infection can be caused by a tooth extraction. I read Sinus Infection on Mayo Clinic 's website and it describe more serious immune system problems can cause it , now i am really freaking out.
Avatar n tn Your tooth probably was abcessed, and an abcessed tooth is never pulled until antibiotics have resolved the infection. Also, novacaine does no good with an abcess, if absolutely necessary to extract an abcessed tooth, then you must be put to sleep. So, you are correct, it was all pain you were feeling! Sounds like a lousy dentist you had!!!! Pain and odor is usually associated with infection. I would get another dentists opinion just to be on the safe side.
1492418 tn?1289149263 Later on the way out I learned my insurance is only preventative so whatever I choose is not covered. So a 250 extraction or 2500 root canal. Guess I pick extraction even that is going to be tough to come up with. So now, That is about an hour, I freaked out at the idea of just going in for an xray, how will i get through the extraction????

Avatar n tn For starters there is something wrong with your wisdom tooth because it doesn't take that long for them to come up all the way. Once it breaks through the gums they come up in days like practically over night. The Smell is probably from and infection. Chances are you have an infection in your gums caused by tooth. I suggest that you go to the dentist to check it out and more than likely he/she will also want to extract the tooth.
Avatar n tn I had similar symptoms, except the last set you mentioned. I went to my dentist after tooth extraction didn't help. He sent me to an ENT. CT scan showed severe sinus problem.
Avatar n tn I forgot to mention I'm on penicillin now because the tooth was infected before extraction.
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 n tn An infection from a tooth extraction can go straight into your maxillary sinuses. Go to a doctor and get some antibiotics. If that doesn't work, cursor the blue "friggy" and get the instructions for the Sinus Flush on my journal. It is slightly risky--you have to bend over in the shower--but it will wash all the infected mucus out of your sinuses and restore them to normal function, and your body will get rid of any straggling germs.
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 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 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 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.
