Tooth infection x ray

Common Questions and Answers about Tooth infection x ray


Avatar m tn Some antibiotics have analgesic effect. Therefore, if you feel better after taking antibiotics, it does not mean you have infection responsible for your symptoms. If you do have chronic infection in your mouth, clinical and radiographic exam can confirm. If your extensive dental treatment were rendered for left side facial pain and pain was not relieved, you may have a condition known as atypical odontalgia. Seeing an Orofacial pain specialist is advised.
Avatar n tn Hi there, for 3 weeks I've had a terrible tooth infection. The first few days I fobbed it off as I'm scared of the dentist but started to hurt so bad I couldn't sleep. So, went to dentist and she couldn't see anything wrong, even with the X-ray but put me on amoxicillin and arranged another appointment.
3204403 tn?1346105744 i wasn't giving anything after my tooth was pulled. like i said he didn't even know i was pregnant until everything was over. & when he found out i was pregnant his whole facial reaction changed as if he did something wrong. his assistant wasn't going to give me an X-ray. but when he asked her did she give me an X-ray she answered as if i wasn't supposed to have one. but still gave me an X-ray.
1470662 tn?1287789856 Prior to starting the root canal, the dental assistant took a panel x-ray. The x ray revealed an impacted wisdom tooth near my sinuses. The dentist referred me to an oral surgeon. I have been experiencing bad headaches and muscle/ joint/ body aches. Can an impacted tooth do that? Your feedback is greatly appreciated.
Avatar n tn Dentist took another x-ray. Infection in tooth - tooth is dead and infection may have affected the jawbone. I was put on anti-biotics and saw a specialist for root canal. He said only 30% chance of it working since looks like infection is very aggresive and entered bone. He suggested implant. Will the infection of the bone be cleaned out with an implant? How long do implants last? What are pluses and minuses.
Avatar f tn I've been on antibiotics 3 X, every time I'm done, infection comes back, even after tooth extraction. Please see details below, I need your opinion. Thank You... Started with Left sore throat, then Gum Pain & hard white painful bump near #17 wisdom tooth. Got severe, hard to swallow, chew, painful. My reg. Dentist Rx'd Amoxicillin - took 6 days to start working. After swelling went down,did x-ray, he could not find any problem -tooth not abcessed.
Avatar f tn I went to the dentist and they took a basic tooth X-ray and said the tooth was dead and needed to be pulled to get rid of infection. So I took 15 days worrh if amoxicillin and a further 5 days of kefelex to try and get rid of infection before the extraction. However the solid lump remained place. I had the tooth extracted and they told me that the infection should clear up pretty quickly.
Avatar n tn I had been on penicillin prior to the root canal because of infection. Sunday night I noticed a ***** bump on the gum below the tooth. It broke during the night and now the swelling has gone down but I am still in pain. I went to the Endodontist today, Monday, and he just looked at the tooth and gave me a script for a different antibiotic. Is this normal? I thought maybe he would do an Xray or something. I am concerned that this infection is not gone and will spread.
Avatar f tn My dentist took an x-ray of my mouth and found no sign of a tooth abscess, even though when she drilled the infected tooth (which had a filling), there was a foul smell, indicating an abscessed tooth. There is also a swelling below my left jaw, and it is difficult to swallow and open my mouth. The dentist didn't explain much regarding why the x-Ray didn't reflect the tooth abscess.
Avatar n tn I had that problem a few years back, I begged the dentist to remove an aching tooth but an x-ray revealed a pocket of infection compressing the nerves under the tooth.
Avatar n tn t do that because it is impossible to have that kind of pain after having a root canal done and told me to just come in on friday and would x-ray the tooth. Is it possible to have pain after having a root canal?
Avatar m tn I said yes, from pollen (I think) but also maybe residual issues from having a cold about 3-4 weeks ago. He said the x-ray showed no infection in the tooth and no decay. He prescribed me amoxicillin (500 mg, 3x per day for 6 days, and a refill if necessary. He said if the pain doesn't go away then I might need a root canal or have the tooth pulled anyway.
Avatar n tn It would be best to get a x-ray and get a root canal done on the tooth before the cavity gets larger and it becomes difficult or impossible to restore the tooth.
Avatar f tn Two weeks ago I felt some pulsing feel on my 4 months old root canal tooth. When I press on the gum, it feels tender as well. I informed my ortho (who is also my general dentist who did this root canal) about it, she didn't took any x-ray but told me that it must be too stressed up by elastic. Now, the tooth doesn't hurt anymore nor does the gum. It only hurts after wearing elastic. Therefore, I went to another clinic to took an x-ray to be safe as I'm gonna be out of country soon.
Avatar m tn They are trying to keep tooth in front of my mouth by extracting then removing the root. It got infected,after a precidure. In think an x-ray should tell that Infection is cleared, so not to remove tooth, then they would bond floating tooth tonight teeth.????????

Avatar m tn Sometimes a crack or trauma to the tooth can result in it dying without any trace of a cavity. The infection can spread and cause the bump without it being apparent on the x-ray.
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 n tn Vertical fracture may not be seen on x-ray. However, pain is usually present on biting. Pain upon biting may be caused by occlusion.
Avatar n tn It really hurts if I bite down on it then I feel my pulse in the tooth for 5 minutes. My dentist took an x-ray and reffered me to an endodontist. My regular dentist did not seem convinced either way if it needs re-treatment or not. The other thing is I seem to have a slight "reffered" pain in a lower right tooth (feels a little like something is stuck between the teeth or that the tooth is loose, just a mild ache).
Avatar m tn As you can see on the X-Ray that I joined with this message, my wife is having an extra tooth in his upper gum. She knows about this since at least 3 years. Her dentist saw this today and recommends her to get a surgery as soon as possible, even if she doesn't feel any pain about it. The most worrying is apparently the white spot that you can see over the tooth. It could be some infection that could, in the worst case scenario, turns into a cancer.
Avatar f tn Thanks ArzooNasiry, just as you said, i have just come back from the dentist. They have taken an x-ray, put me on antibiotics to get the infection down, and said to come back as soon as it goes down so they can drain it and do the 1st stage of a root canal. I have another question ... the antibiotics are for 5 days however the earliest booking to see her is 29th June 2014 (just under 4 weeks) i have been put on the standby list in case someone cancels.
Avatar f tn Hi ladies. So i'm 18 weeks today. Lately ive been noticing a lot of pain in my mouth recently & it gets worse everyday. Yes, I know it's common, my doctor already told me but this pregnancy triggered something in my mouth, I can tell something's wrong. I can't eat or drink without crying cause it hurts me. I made an appointment for this Wednesday & he said they will take xrays. Is that safe?
Avatar n tn I had a root canal and crown on #20 in October 2008 without incident. X-Ray showed (prior to) large dark area just under the large filling. Dentist felt the old filling had a hairline fracture, which allowed bacteria to get into the tooth, causing decay. I had no symptoms whatsoever, no sensitivity to heat or cold, nothing But It was obvious from the X-Ray, to me there was a problem with #20 and something had to be done in October 2008.
Avatar m tn More x-rays (thanks to the inventors of digital x-ray technology} showed what appeared to be infection under tooth. My dentist gave me a choice of extraction or root canal/draining of infection with the risk of the latter choice maybe not fixing the problem long term. Since the bite on this tooth from the one above was only partial, I opted for the extraction. My dentist referred me to an oral surgeon I got to see immediately. The surgeon asked if I wanted IV sedation or a local anesthetic.
