Tooth extraction under local

Common Questions and Answers about Tooth extraction under local


Avatar n tn Since then my dentist has said that he can remove the adjacent wisdom tooth himself under local (other dentist referred me to hospital). the wisdom tooth itself has "rotted" and all thats left is the root, so he said it will be a tricky and quite long job. I am concerned about this, knowing the bone is still healing and regrowing in the molar extraction socket next to it, and I am very worried about damage to the new bone that is still growing.
Avatar n tn how long should you have pain after tooth extraction on 6 year molar This discussion is related to <a href=''>prolonged pain after tooth extraction</a>.
382218 tn?1341181487 Absolutely under a local if its possible. I had 3 done under a local, and one under sedation, and found the recovery time after a local was .......pretty well no time at all. So aside from the kind of sicko feeling of having someone yanking bits of your mouth around, you feel ok afterwards, just sore for a day or two. Whereas, under the sedation, the pain was infinately worse AND I felt like a spaced out loon for a good 48 hours, AWFUL. I prefer having a clear head while dealing with pain.
Avatar f tn can i have multiple tooth extraction in both side of maxillary arch at the same time.
1354136 tn?1331875317 m just getting a local for them to pull my tooth, should this be okay? pretty nervous about the whole ordeal. tooth has already erupted through the gumline, not looking forward to the dentist but looking for to this pressure being removed from my mouth. just looking for insight. thanks all.
Avatar m tn I had root canal and crown done 2 years ago on that tooth, and it got infected due to tooth breaking under the crown(no idea how) To make long story short, this oral surgeon offered me 2 options. 1. General anesthesia Versed/Propofol 2. Local-Nitrous oxide. I'm really not comfortable with either one. I think it will make me paranoid and I will freak out there. I remember last time I had my tooth extracted, I just got Lidocaine and that was it. What are my other options?
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 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 n tn Should an infected tooth be treated with antibiotic before extraction? Is this a judgement call by the dentist or should caution be used to reduce the risk of a puss pocket forming causing much more damage after extraction is complete? And what does it mean when the local anesthesia still doesn't numb the area after the third dose? Are there reasons that the local anesthesia would not work? Thank you.
Avatar n tn it was extracted 6 months ago, and ever since it the next day afte extraction, i felt discomfert not by the tooth but below next the jaw line under my teeth. It feels hard, I went back to the dentist, and told him about it, and he saw no problem. He would touch the area and a few hour later i would feel discomfort. the area it self dosnt hurt, but its hard, and feels like it gets harder when i smile, and when I eat it hard food. it gets harder.
1661995 tn?1327927741 Has anyone else under gone a tooth extraction during pregnancy and everything has been ok?! Please no scary replies...I dont want to be worrying until i have my 20 week Scan!
Avatar f tn Most doctors will not pull teeth until u are through your first trimester and you will need to be cleared by your obgyn.
4922507 tn?1361076248 The tooth taken out was a baby tooth - I have congenitally missing 2nd premolars on my lower jaw. The extraction seems to go straightforward although i needed a double dose of local anaesthetic, as the first lot didnt seem to take even after about 20 mins waiting. all was well at first. However since the extraction I am suffering from insomnia and just recently I have felt a pain increase.
Avatar n tn Hi there, for 3 weeks I've had a terrible tooth infection. The first few days I fobbed it off as I'm scared of the dentist but started to hurt so bad I couldn't sleep. So, went to dentist and she couldn't see anything wrong, even with the X-ray but put me on amoxicillin and arranged another appointment.
Avatar f tn He has put me to the bottom of the list as he feels my dentist could have removed the tooth under a local. Is it because I have some complicated nerve pathway ? My daughter just went to the same dentist and had a small filling on her upper molar but even after 4 injections he could not numb her lower tooth to file it for filling with sealant.
1354136 tn?1331875317 going in on friday to get an upper wisdom tooth pulled. can't afford the sedation so just opting for a local. never had a tooth pulled before, hopefully i'll be fine? tooth is already out of gumline. any insight would be appreciated, just nervous here. thanks.
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.
Avatar n tn A root canal may be recommended in an attempt to save the tooth. In severe infection extraction may be necessary. Keep me posted with more queries. Best luck and regards!
Avatar f tn can the tooth be saved? or extraction is the only solution?
874521 tn?1424116797 Simply, you get what you pay for. Pulling a tiny tooth is not really that simple. The top three causes of tooth loss in cats is a carie or cavity also known as FORL (Feline Oral Resorptive Lesion). There becomes a PAINFUL (though pets don't show much pain - more as I go along) cavity in the mouth and the gum line gets red and irritated and the gum line gets infected. (More on gum issues and how it affects the rest of the body and why bloodwork is VERY beneficial.
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 The extraction was done under local anesthesia and very quickly. It came out whole and only had one root. The hole was tiny. Also, there was little to no swelling. There was some bleeding through the first day, but it stopped after that night, and was fine for the next four days. I was super diligent about salt rinses, soft foods, not drinking through a straw, and am not a smoker. It seemed to be healing well.
Avatar f tn My dentist prescribed antibiotics for the tooth extraction. I told him I am on interferon and he called my GI and checked with him first. I don't think there should be any issues. Both your dentist and doctor should know all your current medications and any invasive dental procedure you are planning.
Avatar n tn on Saterday i experianced real bad tooth ache in a broken top right tooth, (middle back) the tooth istself was almost broken down to the gum, so i went to a emergancy dentist at the local hospital. he said that it cant be extracted because of a infection, so he will clean it up.
Avatar m tn Three days after the extraction of tooth #3 (the most painful tooth) my 2 years of stomach bloating issues completely went away and I felt slightly better but the tiredness remains. None of the 3 teeth showed any signs of decay or cracks on 3 different types of x-rays (Bite wing, Panoramic or Cone Beam) and also no signs of swelling or bleeding around the gums. Certainly the dentist did not want to remove them but I insisted.
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.
Avatar f tn My cheek was prodded at and held open for an entire hour and a half while the students looked for guidance from the doctor while working on me, till he finally stepped in and removed the tooth. Apart from regular wisdom tooth extraction pain, I am now dealing with extreme pain from the hematoma site and I am very scared as to what the consequences of this might be. Is there any way that this could be dangerous? Will this still heal properly after all of the aggravation to it?
Avatar f tn I have decay under crown and dentist wants to remove tooth but I also have a bridge next to this and the supporting tooth for this has roots going sideways due to an impacted tooth in gum line. This may become unstable after extraction and i end up with a large gap . what is the alternative. I have no pain under crown but gum is soft due to the decay.
