Tooth loss timeline

Common Questions and Answers about Tooth loss timeline


Avatar f tn Definitely. This is a great loss for us because I think subconciencely (Sp?) we think mom will always be here. We always want to share so much with them and know that they are a true, if not the only constant in our life. They always support us, and are there for us. I lost my mom when I was 25 and it was so hard to imagine never seeing her again. What helped me was therapy and medication, I think you need to seek help as well.
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 my oldest did not get her first tooth until after she turned 16 months old. but i'm not so sure being over 18 months old and at least one not even cutting through yet would be considered normal. have you spoke w/ her ped about it?
Avatar m tn d like to know what symptoms coincide with syphilis and when as I have enlarged lymph nodes in my groin and my kidneys are a bit sore, also my right upper buttocks is sore (the skin only seemingly, not down deep in the muscle), no fever, rash, sores (except one chanker in my mouth), nausea, vomiting, diareah, hair loss, weight loss, etc...or any of the other "classic" syphilis symptoms, but I've read it can take up to 90 days to become positive on a test...
Avatar f tn 39 yrs old, F. lower left wisdom tooth, mesial impacted, lower right wisdom tooth, horizontal impacted. Upper left wisdom tooth-missing. Presented to my dentist on in Dec 2008 for filling on upper #15 and #12. No pain symptoms, just getting filling due to my dental exam/xray showing the need. At time of fillings, tooth #14 had old deep filling. After filling 15 and 12, extreme pain, heat/cold sensitivity for week. Advil (1000mg) would relieve pain for a couple of hours.
Avatar m tn Today is 5/30 and the numbness has not gone. Area around tooth #28, #27 and # 26 is very numb (lower lip and chin only). Am I going to regain sensation in this area again? Is this going to be permanently numb? I am really worried. Please let me know if I should remove the implant or if it is too late now.
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.
405614 tn?1329144114 Include things such as numbness, weakness or paralysis, impaired vision, loss of balance or coordination, dizziness, seizures, etc. Begin with the first known neurological symptom". If anyone has the time and energy, could you take a look at my Timeline on my MedHelp journal and help me choose which of the events are the ones to put on the paper. The doctor already has a copy of my Timeline (it's been updated since then), but I suppose she wants this form filled out.
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????
Avatar n tn Thank your for your advice. I think I will go ahead with the appointment, as you suggested. I have written down my symptoms from over the past 12 weeks, but I'm just not sure if any of the symptoms I've had in the past correlate or not. I had arm tingling/pain about 6 months ago. It only lasted for 4 weeks or so. I've also had unilateral hearing loss/vestibular loss and vertigo for a few years. Is this what you're talking about in regard to a "timeline"?
Avatar m tn After 3 days I developed a very sore throat ( focus on tonsils with white coating ), 39c fever and malaise, loss of appetite, but no cough or runny nose. The fever lasted for 3 days and the sore throat continued for about 10 days. No rash or noticable swollen lymp glands. Could ARS develop so quickly ( i.e. after 3 days ) ? 2. I am uncircumsised, so does the oft. stated 1/2000 risk still apply. 3.
Avatar m tn Is there averified model of symptoms, timeline and anatomic changes that has been established for ped RSV to pnuemonitis.
505521 tn?1211929241 What is this timeline thing you discuss? Is that like, Hey I had optic neuritis in April of 2000? Don't my records reflect this? Are you telling me to keep my own medical diary and copy it for the appropriate docs?
Avatar n tn I looked and only found the health page about preparing for your doctor visit - it has some very useful tips. I could swear there is a page somewhere about constructing your timeline. Here's my timeline that I took for my first neuro vist, as well as a list of my doctors, dates of health events and tests, and what drugs I am on. Maybe between Rena's and mine you can get inspired to think about what had led up to this point. Good luck.
1142230 tn?1268675666 I'm interested in preparing a timeline. Is there a thread about this somewhere? Thanks for any help!
Avatar n tn I'm trying to get a timeline ready for my new neuro appointment next week. My problem is that I can't remember what happened when from July 2006-early 2008. I had a horrible episode that started July 2006 and was in an out of ERs, dr's offices and on so much medication for so many things that I really can't remember when the episode ended, when the next one started, what symptoms appeared when and when I had what tests. It's all run together.
