Avatar n tn I work in the dental field and see things like this periodically. If infection is present...ie a gum boil, swelling, fistula tract, ect...then an antibiotic will help. You may also try taking anti-inflammatory pain med..like advil, etc...or have a pain med prescribed. Most importantly please check with a dentist, doctor, etc... b/c you definitely need to address the tooth. Remember you can always get a second opinion on the rct treatment.
Avatar n tn I had my r/upper wisdom tooth removed on 2/16. It was not impacted or below the gums. I to have a hole in the back, half of it is healed the other half is still "open" and red, somewhat sensitive. I keep rinsing it with warm water and salt. I had stiches, but cut them out myself, they were not dissolvable, but they irratated the area so bad and I could not afford to go back to the dentist (i know...thats bad)! However, I think it's healing, just slowly.
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 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 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.
Avatar m tn I went to a dentist to extract my "upper right back" tooth. The extraction was incomplete. The dentist told me that he could not remove as the tip(root) is very close to the jaw. Is it safe to leave it as it is? And how long?
Avatar f tn I went to have a tooth removed last week and after breaking the top of the tooth off he (the dentist) had to dig the rest of the tooth out. Well for starters he had to numb the gums twice and when he went to pull i could feel it so he had to numb it again in another spot. After all the painful injections getting numb so that i could have the tooth pulled, the tooth broke off when he tried to pull it. He dug out most of the root.
Avatar f tn It seems to be affecting the tooth in front of the extraction site as well as the extraction site. I am still getting the tingling in my chin and also have some nausea.

19028025 tn?1473902866 I had a tooth extraction on Monday morning and it was a painless process. It bled for about two hours, then stopped. I assume a clot formed. I have been on a light diet of mashed potatoes, pudding, and apple sauce since. I have not used a straw nor have I spit. I have had some excess saliva, so I have had to swallow often. It does feel a lot like sucking through a straw, I suppose. I do not smoke, etc.
