Tooth loss pregnancy

Common Questions and Answers about Tooth loss pregnancy


3204403 tn?1346105744 The dr taking an xray can cause issues during pregnancy. Also, were you given any anesthetic when your tooth was pulled? The only thing that's "safe" with dental work and pregnancy is local freezing. Dr's are suppose to ask you about pregnancy before xrays and at 32 weeks, were you not showing?
947190 tn?1286991297 I've been treated twice for chronic Hepatitis C. Since the onset of the first treatment, (February, 2004), I have been losing my teeth. They simply "break" apart and fall out of my mouth. There's no pain involved but, I now have only 1 1/2 teeth remaining in my mouth. None of my "Doctors" offer me any advice, help, direction. What is happening to me?????? (It's not just tooth loss either. Every body system is being affected).
Avatar f tn Does anyone know the percent of bone loss a tooth has to have before it is no longer able to be saved? Thank you.
Avatar f tn I have a dentist appointment tomorrow cause i have a tooth giving me pain if there happen to be an infection what can they give me to get rid of it so i can have it pulled and will it be harmful to the baby im 28 weeks pregnant
Avatar f tn so your infection in your tooth would have nothing to do with that. HOWEVER, the lingering infection in your tooth COULD cause your immune system to become weaker, and therefore making it harder to sustain a pregnancy with even a healthy baby. Again I'm sorry for your loss and I'm sure your doctor can tell you more about this than I can. Hope I helped tho and GL in the future!
Avatar m tn Tooth mobility may be caused by acute periodotal infection. Once the infection subsides, mobility will be reduced.
541456 tn?1394490622 Over twenty years ago a dentist told me I had bone loss on one tooth. Never affected me until three years ago I got a stabbing pain in it and a root canal. It was fine until three months ago. Now if I floss around it too aggressively it can hurt all night long . It also snags the floss. This is something new. Two months ago it became "rough" on the inside and snags floss. There is no bump or absess and it feels fine today.
Avatar n tn Hello, I am in my early twenties and recently had my upper left premolar extracted and replaced with an implant. I know that bone loss can occur when a tooth is extracted, and the implant is supposed to prevent such bone loss from occurring, but will there be any bone loss at all? I am really concerned because I am so young and don't want my facial appearance to change. Thank you so much.
Avatar n tn It is very important to see a dentist during pregnancy, to avoid gum issues, loss of teeth. Oral Heath is important. & also do not take anything unless it is proscribed by a Dr. Most dentist have walk in hours, so feel free to call your local office to ask questions and maybe be seen tomorrow!!
Avatar m tn Once that happens, the tooth is usually not salvageable because it is now very brittle to begin with. A fractured tooth leaves a breeding ground for bacteria and eventual bone loss which can affect the neighboring teeth. If you do need it removed, I highly recommend an implant to replace it. The procedure is no worse than a root canal. It just takes alot longer to get to the finished product because of healing time. My DH has 7 molar implants and loves them.
Avatar f tn Food gets trapped between the gums and teeth causing the gums to pull away from the tooth and it turns to plaque which can only be removed by your dentist. If left untreated it can also lead to tooth loss due to bone loss. I hope this helps and wish you all the best. It's tough when you need dental care and can't afford it. Good luck.
Avatar m tn You need to see a dentist ASAP. Anytime a tooth starts to wiggle it is usually from bone loss or root absorption as turkee23 says. Please get to the dentist. Not to do so is to risk the loss of both of those teeth and it happens quickly.
Avatar n tn it was vertically impacted. The surgeon removed the tooth and told me my nerve under the tooth was in tact, but he felt I would experience temporary loss of sensation resulting from the surgery. I am feeling numbness and discomfort (not pain) in my front lower jaw and my chin and lower lip from midline to my outer right lip area. It just seems strange to me that I'm feeling discomfort in this area more so than the actual area where the impacted tooth was removed... is this normal????
1145691 tn?1291478338 Well day 10 is finally here, I'm really excited to start ttc, especially as this is my last chance to get preggo before my due date would have been for my previous loss. Not to mention I kinda like the thought the baby would end up being a libra like me (or even have the same birthday as me). The problem is I have a tooth with a previous filling from an old dentist, that needed touching up.
Avatar f tn but they won't pull it for the simple fact that I am pregnant
1486020 tn?1354028475 dentist apointsments here are the worst, had expirence with my DH. anyway, its the pregnancy hormone, dont take tylenol or any when you are preg, or ask ur GYN before taking, orajel was on my mind, i heard a home remedy its bite(or put on affectd teeth) a clove, its a herbal spice small dark brownish (mostly u can get from indian/asian stores) hope i spell it rite. it can get relived from toothache.
Avatar m tn also the infection could pass to the bone which can cause serious problems including bone loss that can cause loss of additional teeth.
1216952 tn?1283675247 My orthrodontist is going non-traditional and will be removing only one tooth, the lower tooth #24 as part of my treatment. I was sent for a consultation for the removal of the tooth and an estimate of what is going to be done was sent to my dental benefits insurance company. The estimate noted: Extract Erupt Tooth/Exposed root, Splinting - Extracoronal, Bone Graft and Resorbable Barrier. My insurance company will not pay for the Splinting - Extracoronal, Bone Graft and Resorbable Barrier.
Avatar f tn Thanks girls :) I was thinking it was because of my thyroid problem but it could be also my doctor says my baby is perfectly fine so that was good to hear I am very very young I'm 14 years old my baby boy is due July 31
Avatar n tn ve lost bone structure around that tooth usually due to periodontal disease. The bone loss causes the roots to be exposed. The area where the roots separate is the furcation. A furcation exposed can lead to more serious periodontal problems. The best course of action is diligent home care and keeping your regularly scheduled dental/periodontal appointments.
Avatar m tn I know about subgingival, but tonight I thought to scrap off this white hard surface from my tooth and after 1 minute of doing it, I started gently pushing from the gum the the tooth and comes out these brown-black hard rock like substances from under my gums. Is this normal?
560272 tn?1311350293 Why do I have so much tooth decay and tooth loss, when I know other people that eat/drink worse than I do and none of their teeth are missing? That's why I was thinking vitamin deficiency related. I wish I could see a holistic doctor, but man they are pricey! And now with my teeth issues, I'm scared to eat anything hard or it is even harder to eat healthy! Life can be very unfair.
