Tooth loss symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Tooth loss symptoms


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 n tn I recently tested neg for hiv but have all of the symptoms swollen glands fatigue diarreah night sweats vague and strange dementia like episodes and appetite loss and a skin rash
Avatar m tn Tooth mobility may be caused by acute periodotal infection. Once the infection subsides, mobility will be reduced.
Avatar m tn -Pain at tooth that intensifies with any chewing on either side. Pain then radiates to my neck at the base of my skull with some pain in my temple & neck muscles on the same side. -Complete loss of appetite. Maybe pain related? Thought it was due to antibiotics and pain meds, but have been off of everything for 2 weeks except Tylenol and ibuprofen. (mostly Tylenol) -Slight sinus inflamation & tight breathing.
Avatar m tn okay thanks, I did however find a connection on the web between tooth infections and hair loss. Apparently, the white blood cells being directed north have a tendency to attack hair follicles. I have always been extremely healthy and fortunate enough to rarely get even a mild sniffle so these symptoms have really came as a surprise. Will your urine stink if u have chlamydia or is that is that a tell tale sign of UTI?
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.
1959574 tn?1326305470 You really have to get to a dentist and see about getting that tooth removed. Your symptoms are not going to go away until the offending tooth is removed. The bone starts to dissolve around it and that lets saliva and secretions that cause infection to stay up under the gumline. It won't go away until that tooth is out and the bone will dissolve and cause infection further and further along via the periodontal ligament affecting your other teeth.
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 The back of my two bottom teeth are peeling off at the gum. If I took my fingernail, I could pull part of my tooth off. I can't see back there to see what is happening and it doesn't hurt. Help!
1806721 tn?1554333407 Yesterday, all of a sudden, I came down with flu-like symptoms - fever (101+), shivering chills, severe body aches and headache, loss of appetite. I don't have other cold symptoms like nasal congestion, runny nose, cough, etc. My fever broke earlier today. But I'm still feeling very weak and sweaty with horrible headaches and constant tooth/jaw pain. Is it possible to get a fever/headache from a tooth infection? Or is the fever just an isolated viral infection?
Avatar f tn Its been eight days since I got one wisdom tooth removed under local anesthesia, and I've have no pain so i thought its gonna be smooth sailing from now on. im eating normal food and being extra careful that no food gets in there. but i noticed some weird symptoms, for the past few days I get a bad taste in my mouth that wont go away.
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 f tn Hi, I have hypothyroidism and been strugling with some symptoms that my doctor says shouldn't be the effect of my thyroid problem. So I was wondering if anyone experienced lots of nightmares and really poor quality of sleep, bad teeth and depression? If so do you guys have any good advice for these and for example the brainfog which is tipical for thyro? Thanks in advance.
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????
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.
