Common Questions and Answers about Tooth infection wisdom tooth


Avatar n tn Not sure what the cause is for you but in the UK we get free dental care whilst pregnant because tooth problems or an infection can cause problems for the baby.TCP and salt water usually ease my wisdom tooth, it will help stop any infection too .
Avatar f tn Having an impacted wisdom tooth can be very painful. what it means is that there is no room for it to grow. To find out if you do have an infection, you need to see your dentist. If there is an infection, he will be able to prescribe an antibiotic for you. And yes, any infections in the mouth and ears could spread to the brain. Book an appointment to see your dentist.
Avatar n tn You need to get the wisdom tooth extratced. Wisdom teeth cause many problems and there is no use for them. The blotches that you have are chances the infection caused it. When you go see the dentist he/ she will want to extract the 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.
1218873 tn?1300094816 Should I be concerned about having a wisdom tooth removed? I have had a bad taste in my mouth, but I was on amitriptyline and put it down to that then when I switched to cymbalta the taste went but 4 weeks later it was back. I started to notice I got a burst of it when cleanibg my teeth, when it happened again I realised it was my one remaining wisdom tooth which seems to be hugh but was not looking to healthy.

11129330 tn?1430882208 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 f tn I think either you had an eye infection that was separate from the teeth issue. So for impacted wisdom teeth they hurt a lot because they go in and out and break through the gums. They will go back down and it won't hurt for a while and then come back up and you will go through this for several years. Mine finally came out and stayed out. So you don't want to go through the pain of them going in and out like this you can have them removed by a oral surgeon.
Avatar f tn 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 n tn At the early stages of the sore throat i had no pain in my wisdom tooth, however on day 2-3 my lower right wisdom tooth became very painful and kind of inflamed. At this time I also had a pain under my jawline ( the side of the painful wisdom tooth only) - is this the lymph node? If the sore throat is down to an infected wisdom tooth - would it be contagious, say if I kissed my girlfriend??? She has no symptoms of a sore throat so i'm guessing no???? Thanks for any replies.
Avatar f tn Having the wisdom teeth removed is a procedure doctors recommend due to the issues your having
Avatar n tn I know that the dentist had a hard time removing my right wisdom tooth. I have had SEVERE swelling in my mouth and pain since the surgery i was prescribed vicodin 5-500 and also motrin 800 milligrams. The first 24 hours i pretty much slept after i took the meds and an ice pack seemed to ease the pain. Well this morning i noticed yellow bruising around my jam bone on the right side and the inside of my mouth near the extraction sight is feeling kind of inflamed and has a wierd taste to it.
Avatar f tn I went to the dentist recently and dentist said that I had some decay on my wisdom teeth and that he wanted to pull them to stop infection and spreading he sent me to get an opg xray (I think that's what it'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...
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 If the pain source is dental infection of identified wisdom tooth, antibiotics and pain killer generally will reduce the pain in 24-48 hours. However, the treatment of choice is extraction of the wisdom tooth , which will yield long term effect.
1085237 tn?1293764246 The doc said to check with the dentist to see if it was wisdom tooth related so went to dentist they weren't sure and referred me to an oral surgeon who could not be sure that it was but went ahead and removed the left impacted wisdom tooth. Now I have an infection the clinic put me on 300 mg of clindamycin 4 times a day, and I am due to see the surgeon again tomorrow but the swelling and hardness in my jaw and neck is still there.
