Tooth infection pus

Common Questions and Answers about Tooth infection pus


Avatar n tn I had my lower right wisdom tooth extracted 2 weeks ago, and since last night Ive had trouble swollowing and there is pus in the socket. What should I do?
Avatar m tn Yes it swelled up again. But I drained the pus. After draining the Pus. The lump went down again. But like before. Its not completely gone. Its been a week since I drained it. Theres like 5 percent of the lump left. Im still taking antibiotics. The neighboring tooth isnt infected, I dont know why the lump will not go away completely. Could it be a deep deep infection that antiobiotics cant penetrate?
Avatar n tn Hi, Any bacterial infection can lead to collection of pus in the tooth can cause tooth abscess. A tooth infection should be treated appropriately to prevent spread of infection. The usually preferred antibiotics are amoxicillin, clindamycin, penicillins and metrogyl.Azithromycin may raise serum methadone levels and/or increase the effects of methadone. It is advisable to contact a local health care provider. Do write to us again. Best luck and regards!
Avatar n tn It seemed ok but about 2 months ago a small hole appeared on the gum in front of this teeth which sporadically leaks pus and the tooth feels sore now and then (with varying intesity of pain). My dentist has prescribed 2 courses of amoxicillin now but this has not fixed the problem. Any advice on what I should do now? I don't want to have the tooth out as it is a front bottom one.
Avatar n tn I have had an abcess and infection at the tip of a front tooth root for four years. I knew that I had problems and this is what showed up on the x-ray. Two weeks ago I had a root canal treatment on this tooth. It was fine for about 10 days but now feels painful and just the same as it did prior to the treatment. Will it be possible for the dentist to re-do the root canal treatment, and if this does not work are there any other options to try and save the tooth?

Avatar f tn that stems from dental work its so bad but no one thought it was the tooth till i almost swallowed it and the pus and relief that released from me the other dont know what im goingn through...go with your own gut feeling cause im looking for someone to help me!!!!on hear somone will see my story before i joke!!!!
Avatar n tn I'm not sure what this poison is. Sometimes if the tooth is badly infected, there's some pus that may be expelled. If that is the case, antibiotics should be taken and the infection should resolve after the extraction. Swallowing it isn't necessarily dangerous but I wouldn't swallow it if I could help it.
Avatar f tn so if the pus is comming from the face through the tooth..and thats not the cause of my infection all you dentist are confusing face is still numb now...give me something i didnt do yet???and what damages it cause to the body...i tried to take some magnesium sulfate to do a #2 it almost paralized me...and no medication my dr refused a blood test..and they tried to treat the infection but it caused an allergic reaction to my dentist will touch me with this infection..
Avatar n tn Do you have fever, swelling, pain in the area, bad taste, pus, etc? Those are all signs and symptoms of an infection and would need to be evaluated by a dentist for proper treatment.
Avatar f tn yesterday my tooth absessed i started keflex but when i woke up this morning my jaw is the size of a golf ball, i now have a sty and the sore on my arm that WAS almost healed drained infection from it and is now draining puss. i have an appointment to get the tooth pulled on march 7. what is wrong with me!
Avatar n tn Since sometimes the roots of teeth are very close or inside the sinus , periapical infection of the tooth may cause pus formation in the sinus . If the pus doesn’t come out through the tooth canals , it is likely that discharge will be through the nose . Please consult your dentist and ENT surgeon for examination and diagnosis. Hope this helps you . Take care and regards !
Avatar n tn Today I woke up and the tooth is draining pus. Is this normal? I am on a pretty strong antibiotic and am going to have my tooth restored in a couple days. But now I'm concerned about this drainage.
Avatar m tn You will need to find out what is causing the infection (seems like its the root canal) and depending on the extent of infection, you may need to have the root canal redone or perhaps surgery to fix the root tip in the bone. If the damage is too extensive, they may need to extract the tooth. If the problem is caused by the root canal, an endodontist would be the proper referral.
Avatar n tn I went back to the dentist, he said that he must perform a root canal on this infected tooth NOW. When the tooth was drilled, the dentist said that pus came out. He had me squeez my cheek to get more pus out. Afterward, the pain slowly subsided but it has been 2 months now and I still can't touch my face on the right side near my right eye with out a sharp pain occuring in my right cheek, just above the eye tooth.
Avatar f tn Absest tooth i have pus im on ibprophen amoxicillin no insurance no cash and i look some what puffy but no pain help
Avatar m tn Hello, I recommend that you call your doctor's office and ask them if the swelling is normal, because when your upper or lower jaw swells with an abscessed tooth it's indicative of a very serious infection. When you call them you can also ask about the pocket of poison but I am surprised your doctor did not drain it for you to clear out some of the infection.
Avatar m tn Standard treatment of a tooth abscess is to drain pus and then disinfect and fill tooth, or remove tip of root (an apicectomy) if it cannot be disinfected, or take the tooth out. Specific remedies to be taken every hour for up to 10 doses while waiting for dental treatment a.. Copious saliva, spongy gums Mercurius 30c b.. First hint of an abscess, tooth and surrounding gum feel hot, mouth dry Belladonna 30c c..
Avatar n tn You have an infection! Your dentist should never have worked on an infected tooth, as soon as he saw the pus he should have put you on antibiotics. I would definitely kick this guy to the curb and find another. For now call this dentist and tell him what's going on and ask him to prescribe antibiotics or call your doctor...don't let this linger. Take care.
Avatar m tn Hi there, Any infection in the body should be treated. Dental abscesses and pus pockets in the throat warrant evaluation and complete treatment with antibiotics. Persistent sore throat can be due to many causes like glandular fever, tonsillitis, laryngitis and cancer. It is suggested to see an ENT surgeon and get checked. Treatment will depend on the underlying cause. Hope it helps. Best wishes and regards!
Avatar n tn Went to the dentist for pain ect with newly filled tooth. He put a hole in the tooth (number 23) to drain and I go back in 3 weeks for root canal. 1st question is it normal to leave a hole? 2) wont that hole hurt like hell when numbing wears off? 3) shoudnt he have taken an xray since my xrays are 1 year old? And he said nothing came out of the hole so he thinks it was gases or something built up in there......sound right? Sorry with all the ?
Avatar f tn So far, the dentist has been unable to permanently seal the tooth. Each check still shows some pus. He does his thing with the files, and puts in another temporary filling. This has happened 3 times. Meanwhile, the tooth hurts to bite down on, and I can feel my heart beat in it. Its getting more uncomfortable instead of better. I'm due for a 4th check in several weeks. The dentist said that this isn't that unusual. I've never heard of anyone else experiencing this.
Avatar n tn On my left upper side, it was excrutiatingly painful, the gum around the tooth was swelling, there was pus/blood, and excess saliva. Never having experienced this before and not having a family dentist I went to the ER where they said, not a Dentist but a regular MD, the tooth was absessed. I was started on Clindamycin and told to take Advil for the pain. This was Sunday, today is Wednesday and I have been taking the anti-biotics regularly every six hours.
Avatar f tn I've been on Amoxicillin for 5 days for a tooth abscess. I went to the dentist for significant facial swelling, and was diagnosed with the abscess. The swelling has gone down, however I now have a pus pocket on my gum above my molars. It's only painful when I touch it, but I can see the swelling under my cheek when I smile. Since I'm already on Amoxicillin, can I pop the abscess using a sterilized needle? It's Friday night, and the dentist won't be in until Monday...
