Common Questions and Answers about Tooth infection wisdom tooth


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 n tn Well I had my wisdom tooth pulled on Monday.It had to be the worst experience.After 2 1/2 hrs of grinding,pulling,pushing and cutting,the doctor gave up and had to send me to someone else.My appt was at 9:00 and I left at 12:30.The next dentist couldn't get me in until 3:00.By the time I got to that appt all the numbing shots wore off and they had to numb me all over again.That dentist took another 1 1/2 hours to get it out.
Avatar n tn Is it definately an infection? or could it just be irritated because the other wisdom tooth on the opposite side is now trying to make its way through my gum? as for sinus problems, how bad can they be? Your comment was really helpful, thank you.
Avatar f tn Okay so I have a gum infection around my wisdom tooth, pericoronitis. i've been on antibiotics, amoxicillin for 3 days now and not much has changed. my throat is starting to hurt so im scared the infection is spreading. i dont have dental insurance so i dont want to remove the tooth unless its the last resort. I want to get a operculectomy to remove the gums and hopefully it'll solve the infection. if it comes back, then i will really consider getting the tooth out.
Avatar f tn hi all i had a wisdom tooth took out last friday had to go bk to dentist today as i had a rally bad taste coming out of it and they said i had a bit of an infection but the salt water had sorted it so they cleaned all the tooth out and packed it my question is whilst its packed cud i still rinse it out with salt water thank u
Avatar m tn If your wisdom tooth is trying to come in there is infection present, no matter how minimal. The lymph nodes collect the bacteria. They can stay swollen for months even AFTER the infection is gone. If your wisdom tooth becomes impacted the lymph node will stay swollen. Think of them as a cemetery for dead bacteria. It takes a long time for the body to eliminate the dead bacteria they hold. Has he recommended the tooths extraction?
Avatar f tn Impacted lower wisdom tooth is rarely the culprit of temporomandibular disorder. However, removal of impacted wisdom tooth yields long term dental denefits.
Avatar m tn I meant to say she has some gum pain and hasn't seen a dentist in many years.
Avatar n tn I would see a root canal specialist to evaluate the tooth that is bothering you-- which seems NOT to be the tooth that already had a root canal procedure. He can check the wisdom tooth also while you are there.
Avatar n tn If this tooth is a wisdom tooth then I would not consider doing the rct unless it is a critical tooth and has sufficient bone support. If it is not important then I might consider filling it, if that doesn't work then extraction is a very viable option.
11129330 tn?1430878608 I'm 34 weeks & I just noticed that my wisdom tooth is starting to come out, has anyone else's starting coming out during pregnancy?
Avatar m tn Hi, I got a bride fitted on my top left side, it is 4 teeth and fits on the tooth next to the top left wisdom tooth, obviously that tooth was ground and made smaller for the bridge to fit on it, the tooth was absolutely healthy and fine, i have never had any problems with that tooth earlier, the day grinding took place that tooth became sore, very very sensitive and I had to get temp.
Avatar n tn is it okie 2 pull off my wisdom tooth.... n im 18 years old ....
Avatar f tn Why doesn't he just fill the cavity? I never heard of pulling a tooth because of a tiny cavity. My dentist doesn't work like that. I lost one wisdom tooth because I injured it but the other three are fine and dandy and I intend to keep them. I don't understand this pull happy approach.
Avatar m tn Just a few days ago I started to feel very bad due to a wisdom tooth thepast when my wisdom tooth would inflamate it would eventually go down, so I waited 3 days..Aftet the third day feeling horrible I went to the dentist and he gave me amoxiline and antifamatory medicine. The day after I took the wisdom tooth out and now I am recuperating. Question number 2: Will those 3 days when my tooth started to infect could cause any trouble iin my heart?
Avatar f tn I then went to the oral surgeon a week later for a consultation. He said I had bone loss near the wisdom tooth from the infection, which scared me. He told me to wait to take another dose of amoxicillin until the day before the extraction. My jaw is currently hurting right below the lower left wisdom tooth. Does this mean the infection has returned from the first dose of amoxicillin and if so, am I still ok to wait until a week from tomorrow to have the tooth extracted?
Avatar f tn Saw my doctor on Wednesday and he said it sounded like anxiety. Dentist on Thursday, said I had a tooth infection. Freaked out, bc I know that this can spread to your brain. I've had a stye and a sinus infection, so now I'm convinced that it's spreading to my brain. My doctor said it's unlikely, so did the dentist. I'm taking an antibiotic and will be getting the infected tooth out next week. Possibly all 4... It's a top molar that's infected.
Avatar n tn My wisdom tooth is the one in front of the white patch. My wisdom tooth is pulled to the front from my braces after losing a tooth from a previous accident. Thank you for your help. Btw I just went to the dentist for a clean literally two days ago and dentist said my teeth are fine. Swollen gums started today. http://tinypic.
Avatar n tn Had a wisdom tooth removed. Less than a week later, the tooth next to the old wisdom (already worked on twice as the dentist said there was a cavity in it - filling caused pain when chewing so he redid the filling a 2nd time and still a problem) and the crowned molar next to it started throbbing. Feels like it's coming from the area between the crowned molar and the one next to the old wisdom tooth. So, I go back.
