Tooth infection with no pain

Common Questions and Answers about Tooth infection with no pain


Avatar n tn And within 15 seconds, that pain from the needle was non existent.. The tooth did not hurt at all..Matter of fact, I had no further pain to deal with once my gums got over the minor swelling associated with the shots. Bottom line. If you go to an endodondist, this will be over in 45 minutes, all completed in one appointment, and at least in my case, I did not need any pain medication to deal with the after affects. Once he had completed the root canal, my pain was gone...
Avatar n tn Hi, I need some advise regarding my teeth. I had a root canal done on my tooth 19th maybe about 3 years ago. 2 years ago my gum swelled because of pus & infection therefore the dentist did another root canal to remove the infection. I found out last sep. that there's some infection underneath that same tooth again, but because of some complication with insurance i didn't do anything about it till now. This time there's no swelling or pain or any sort of discomfort.
Avatar f tn I would go back to the dentist- there is a chance you could have a dry socket... If so, the dentist can pack the site with some medicated gauze. If you were given some pain medicine, I would take it- if not I would get some ibuprofen(no Tylenol because that will thin your blood). I've had dry sockets and they hurt.
Avatar m tn caps fitted until my bridge was ready, once the bridge was fitted the sensitivity went off but I still could not chew with it, it always pained, after 4 months I underwent a course of Antibiotics (4 days Amoxycillin - no help) followed by (5 days Cipro 500mg + Metronidazole 500mg) and it seemed i could start biting with it, so obviously there was an infection but I could feel it was not 100%, still it was sensitive, the day i would do a lot of chewing with that tooth it pained later but this wa
Avatar n tn Thanks for the advice. I am still in agony. No blood clot present over tooth. Taken Amoxycillian for 5 days so far 1500mg per day. Painkillers Ibuprofen dont work. coedine takes the edge off it slightly. At least I think I know what the cause is now and I've read up on it, so will ask dentist if he can pack the tooth to give me some relief and cure the problem. Jaw is now yellow with bruising and jaw and ear pain really severe. Worst pain I've been in.
Avatar f tn But I would say as long as there is no continued bleeding, and there is no pulsating pain, you should be fine. The yellowish film may be a scab. If you do feel more pain and sensations of throbbing, then do see the dentist straight away as this could be an infection. Gargle with salty water.
Avatar f tn The first of December I had an upper right molar break off on the back side. I wanted to save the molar because it is one of the only ones I have left for grinding my food. The dentist put some composite in the broken area to see if it would hold because he said the cavity that caused it to break was close to the root canal. The dentist had me wait 2 weeks to see how the tooth would do to rule out root canal.
Avatar m tn While wearing the temporary, I noticed pain, both in the tooth and jaw. Sometimes, the jaw pain was worse than the tooth pain. Three weeks later, I got the permanent put on. While fitting it, my remaining tooth was very sensitive to the many attempts. He said "that's good, it means it's alive". After the permanent was put on, I had bite issues for a week or so, he adjusted, feels better now. I am left with severe pain...most sensitive under my left cheek bone.
Avatar m tn No it can not, saliva renders the virus inactive thus unable to infect.
Avatar f tn What kind of harm can a tooth infection do to an unborn baby? Also I am in SUCH PAIN! ***** getting teeth pulled wgile pregnant- no pain killers for this patient!
Avatar m tn When tapping my abscessed tooth there was incredible pain but now when i tap this tooth the pain hardly changes. The gum tissue above my abscessed tooth was also very sensitive, dark pink, and began to develop a boil. There is no sign of that this time. Salt water relieved pain completely when i had my abscessed tooth but now salt water has no effect whatsoever. I went to the doctor and he believed it to be sinusitus and prescribed antibiotics and saline nose rinse.
Avatar n tn i have a broken tooth with intense pain. i have a swollen face and lip on the left side of my face. i went to the er yesterday morning and they gave me clindamycin hcl 150 mg and ibuprofen 800 mg along with oxycodone apap5-325mg.
Avatar n tn Sounds like you need an antibiotic, and even some vicoden or something. I'm sure being pregnant limits your options for pain control, and maybe even the antibotics. The doctor, or dentist who did the extraction should have given you antibiotics and pain medication if they were needed. I'd call whoever extracted your tooth and find out if pain medication and/or antibiotics are warranted.
Avatar n tn Well it only got worse to the point I could barely function so rang back and got emergency appointment, I had the dreaded injection with local anaesthetic and she began to drill the bad tooth and I nearly screamed with the pain! Even with the anaesthetic, so had to stop and she gave me metronidazole to do me 5 days, the thing is my appointment for either root canal or extraction isn't until Friday and the antibiotics finish today.
Avatar m tn About 3 weeks ago I started having immense pain in my tooth so I scheduled an appointment with a dentist. A few days later I was told I have a necrotic tooth and that I could have a root canal or have it extracted. With no insurance I had to opt to have the tooth extracted. The dentist gave me some antibiotics and scheduled me for the extraction. I had two days left on my mess and I didn't finish them.
Avatar f tn I also want to add that the upper molar had no pain previous to the crown placement, but however the dentist said there was a fracture in the tooth. The tooth DID have a large silver filling in it. The lower was fractured as well, and had slight pain when eating...before crown placement.
Avatar n tn The swelling and infection was one week after the root canal was done. I did have a second visit to the endodontist after I started the antibiotics. The recommendation was to hold off on the crown repair for a week after getting off the antibiotics to determine if the symptoms would return. The maxillary pain has returned affecting my eye w/ headaches. Possible extraction was mentioned.
Avatar f tn I had a cleaning and when they were checking my filling in #3 there was apparently a crack and I received an infection. I was put on Amoxicillin and a root canal was performed on June 23, two days later an incision was made in the gum to clean out some of the infection, the next day a small hole was made in the upper gum to try and drain some of the infection. On July 1st I was sent to an oral surgeon who did a panoramic of my face and there was infection the size of a walnut up into my sinus.
Avatar n tn i had top tooth out and wisdom 6 mths ago, amd still get pain in that area been back and too dentist and they say its anxcity and panic attacks fed up with ,,, had pain this weekend had an infection give me antibiotics for 3 days no pain ,, no feeling faint no headache wired hey ..
Avatar n tn Hello. I had a crown placed on a lower tooth about a month ago. I had no pain for the first couple of weeks. Then I started getting pain in my jaw. The dentist drilled it down and said the bite was off. It was better, but still painful. I went back again and he drilled some more and said the pain was due to bad bite.
Avatar n tn Dealing with an abscessed tooth is ALWAYS worth the wallet hit! Ask yourself if you would be prepared to pay out for treatment if YOU had an abscessed tooth. Abscessed teeth are no fun. It won't go away by itself, and if left untreated could even possibly spread to the bone, or worse. Pulling the tooth is the best plan. But a course of antibiotics could kill the infection. And that won't cost a bomb.
Avatar m tn How long after starting amoxicillin before the pain from a tooth infection goes away? I saw the dentist and started taking amoxicillin about 30 hours ago. I have a root canal scheduled a week from now. But the pain is as intense as it was prior to starting the treatment. I do have type II diabetes treated with diet and pills. I know this can prolong infections. But wow, I sure would like the pain to decrease. I'm taking vicodin and it still hurts! Thanks!
Avatar n tn The pain radiated throughout my upper and lower jaw. Due to the infection I looked like there was an orange stuffed in my cheek. And no OTC pain reliever helped. I couldn't stand it so I went to my dentist for a referral to an oral surgeon -- they couldn't get me in for another month and a half (small town, one oral surgeon). The pain didn't come on slow and steady, it was just there in full force. Get it taken care of now, you'll feel much better!
Avatar f tn And make sure your getting a good amount of calcium. I see plenty of pregnant patients with severe tooth decay and need work that cant be completed due to pregnancy.
