Avatar n tn Upper left molar #14 was extracted 8 months ago. Prior extraction was experiencing ache on left side of face especially cheek bone & around eye, slightly swollen. Asked for antibotics, he told me what I was experiencing had nothing to do with the tooth & seek medical doctor. Tooth did not come out in one piece. Ten days later went back to dentist as sharp piece of bone sticking out of extraction site. Dentist removed, said it was not uncommon & that everything looked fine.
Avatar n tn I had a root canal 8 days ago on tooth #5 and started antibiotics. Day 4, my tooth was extremely sore and I noticed my face was sore and I had a bump that was extremely sensitive far above my tooth by my cheek bone. Day 5, symptoms got worse, more radiating pain. Day 6, back to the dentist, he drilled on my tooth looking for an extra canal or crack. Found nothing and put me on Kelflex antibiotic. Excruciating pain. The lump on my jaw bone has gotten larger, my face is a little swollen.

Avatar f tn My mother has a painful tooth infection; the side of her face is swollen. She doesn't have insurance and currently can't afford medical assistance.

Avatar n tn I noticed my dogs face near her cheek is swollen and her neck on the same side is also swollen, its soft in her neck not hard. It wasnt a gradual growth i just notices it last night. Shes acting completly normal shell let me touch it. She does have bad teeth but my vet has never been able to check her mouth for as long as ive had her. I adopted her and she not very nice with other people (we have to muzzle her and sedate her prior to going to the vet). Any ideas of what could be causing this?
Avatar m tn Cheek is a little swollen along with my gland. However I have been having some numbness/tightness on face on the same side. Is this because of the abcess/infection. My surgeon said yes to the gland area but the numbness doesn't have anything to do with it. Does anyone else have any input that might help me. This is tooth 31. Will this cause numbness/tingling feeling on my right side of my face. Thank you for any input.

Avatar f tn t ease and my face was still very swollen even after taking Clindamycin. I was so sick to my stomach due to the Clindamycin that I called my doctor to ask for something else less upsetting on day four. He prescribed Keflex instead. I've been taking it as prescribed for one whole day but the swelling and excruciating pain in my jaw, neck, temple and cheekbone/sinus continue to come and go every few hours. It is now 3 hours into day five and my face is still swollen and in pain.
Avatar n tn Severe toothache of a lower leftside tooth has been diagnosed as infection by my dentist; this tooth had a long-ago root canal and subsequent crown so he recommended re-evaluation by endodontist. (my dentist first presribed antibiotic (clindamycin) and vicodin for severe pain. Saw the endo yesterday, said to wait for infection to clear; then will re-do the root canal (either by drilling hole etc, plan A, or the apicentry (sp?) procedure.
1169306 tn?1263257447 I looked in the mirror and noticed the left side of my face was swollen and upon a more close examination of the area, I found the area just below the tooth is red and swollen. It also has white spots around the swollen area. I cannot eat nor swallow easily. I can barely talk and when I can, I am hoarse.
Avatar f tn I had a tooth filled 2 weeks ago and a lot of throbbing of my nerver has been going on by that tooth. Going on into the 3rd week, I woke up and noticed my face on the side the tooth was pulled is swollen. What is wrong and how can I resolve this problem?
Avatar n tn I recently had an infection on one of my lower back molars(second from last on bottom side) I had a root canal/crown done several years ago. My dentist sent me to a reputable endodontics. They did a re-treatment on the tooth. My dentist had put on me on pain meds and amoxicillin. two days after the retreatment I was in horrible pain. I went back to the endo to have an I&D done. My face was very swollen for two days.
Avatar n tn Is it typical to automatically get an infection after starting a root canal. Is my swollen face a definite sign of infection, or could it simply be the nature of the procedure? Is it possible that I took Amox for an entire week with no adverse affects, and then suddenly have an allergic reaction the following week from the same medication? Should I take a different medication for infection prior to completing root canal. How long after starting root canal is it safe to wait to finish it?
Avatar f tn You should take your daughter immediately to a dentist or the ER to get the abscess drained and possibly get IV antibiotics to help control the infection. An infection into the neck region is very dangerous and potentially life threatening.
Avatar n tn This past Sunday I was in the car with my family and all of a sudden I had this really sharp horrible pain shoot through the left side of my face. It didn't feel like it was the tooth that had the filling but above it and mroe toward the sinus cavity. The tooth itself is mildy sensitive to pressure, but soothed by chewing or drinking hot or cold. and the swollen cheek and gums are making all the teeth on that side of my my face throb.
Avatar n tn My dog has a soft lump under his jaw and this morning his face was swollen on the same side as the lump. His whole face wasn't swollen, just the jowel on the same side as the lump. I have an appointment to take him to the vet but was wondering if anyone had any ideas of what this might be.
Avatar n tn When I saw the oral surgeon he took a full mouth xray and found the infection in my jaw. I was told by the oral surgeon that the tooth I just had the root canal on should be pulled. I then went back to the dentist and had the tooth pulled and he prepped me for a bridge. I now have a temporary bridge over the extraction. The swelling in my face and neck has gotten worse so I went back to the dentist yesterday and was told it might be the tooth in front of the tooth they just extracted!!!
