Common Questions and Answers about Tooth problems how to help the pain


Avatar m tn i havent been to a dentist in 10 years because i have a blood phobia and i have had many tooth abscesses. this last one is really bothering me. i have to take about 1600 mg of ibuprofen and 1000 mg of tylenol to keep the pain away. i feel like crap,i have flu like symptoms. body aches,chest tightness and fatigue..but i am concerned about my heart health here. i have posted a lot on this forum about my cardiac problems. my electrical system of my heart is really messed up.
5598716 tn?1439143195 The other pain I can tell is separate and is coming from a specific tooth. The pain in the tooth responds to certain stimuli as mentioned above. My appointment with the neurologist is coming up on April 27, 2018. He’s going to see me for these toothache related problems and chronic jaw pain. My dentist referred me for possible Trigeminal Neuraglia. Have you ever heard of Trigeminal Neuraglia causing root canal type symptoms? What advice can you give me regarding this?
2080404 tn?1643113754 Ugh I can't seem to win. My tooth finally healed, gods it was so sore. Now another tooth feels infected. The gum is all inflamed and the tooth is cracked. Hurts like hell but I've been taking OTC pain medicine and keeping an eye on it. No swelling, thankfully. Just pain. Now my other tooth is hurting cuz I had to chew on that side earlier in the day. How am I supposed to eat anything if I have a tooth on either side acting up??
6530778 tn?1456883801 A tooth infection can eventually spread to your brain, but you would have to have a really, really bad toothache for a long, long time before that could possibly happen. You would know for a long time that something was wrong. You would know that you needed to get your tooth fixed, and there would be plenty of time to take care of it before it spread to your brain.
Avatar f tn I had 3 root canals in a tooth a few weeks ago, the tooth did not settle and I continued to have continuous pain, worse after eating or drinking. The pain and sensitivity increased so the tooth was eventually removed. I thought this would be the end of the problems. Things still have not settled and whilst there was some improvement the teeth either side of the extraction are now aching and ache for some time after eating or drinking.
Avatar m tn How could this be infected again? There is no pain in the tooth at all. Am I going to need this tooth pulled? How painful is that? I am so scared!
2333944 tn?1342912367 I have had a dry socket from having a tooth pulled that hurt worse than the tooth did. I do have stitches under the arches, but I guess the arches help keep the pain down. I am not sure how many teeth I had least 15. You're right....there are options besides opiates for many things.
Avatar f tn Hi there I'm 46 year old w/f and nobody can figure out my problem. On my right side under my wisdom tooth in neck fell's like it's so dry and like someone is sucking all the moisture out of that one spot. Back in July I had this wisdom tooth out and I heard something click in my neck told the o. suregon said nothing then he treating me for dry socket but it keep's getting worse every day. It feel's like I just want to put a screw driver in there and pull it out.
Avatar f tn Anybody had a tooth pulled or a root canal while pregnant? I need to go to the dentist, my back molar I believe has a cavity, but between my tooth, its gone past the cavity point cause when I press on my gum it hurts or is tender down to my jaw and the pain radiates to my ear. I really hate the dentist, last time i had 12 cavities drilled was given so much laughing gas I threw up on myself then laughed about it, they gave me atavan to which helped a little with making the experience a foggy one.
Avatar f tn Hi this could absolutely not be due to a crack in the tooth as suggested; a pulsating pain in a tooth could be due to inflammation in the tooth (pulpits) that has progressed to the ligament that holds the tooth. Crack in tooth tend to be painful for a longer period of time and continue to hurt on biting. By suggesting that it doesn’t hurt at the moment whatsoever means that the condition is gone into a chronic phase.
1028657 tn?1252118729 Ok, hun...deep breaths. You might not feel like you have a choice, but you do. You can choose life. Just for today you don't have to continue this horrible self-destructive cycle. I was abusing my pain meds also, first because my pain was awful, but then just not caring how many I took. I also have degenerative disk disease, bulging disc, scoliosis, and a syrinx - all at the same level of the spine. It *****, a lot.
362119 tn?1223137936 I opted to just have the tooth pulled rather than keep trying to fix it. It actually became infected because of food under the gum, which also entered under the crown. I know it sounds bad, but I would seriously consider that... it takes the pain away immediatly. Do you have a knot or any swelling? If so, then you probably have an infection, and you will need to take antibiotics.
Avatar n tn Now I have to decide whether to have the tooth extracted in order to solve the abscess problem once and for all and to remove the MTA. I have some questions. Here are they: 1) If I leave the site of the extraction empty, will I be able to live with it? Will it require a great adjustment or will I get used to it? Might I also face problems with occlusion and TMJ in the long term as one dentist warned me? 2) I have asked and researched about the possibility of implants.
603946 tn?1333941839 Its hard to say how much longer the tooth will last. With a perforation in the root, the rate of infection from that opening will determine how long the tooth will last. If the infection spreads rapidly, you can develop an abscess, loss of bone in your jaw as well as pain and swelling. Even if symptoms don't arise gradually, it can spread through the jaw and be symptom free while its destroying your jaw.
284738 tn?1283106819 oh, hun i know how you feel and i'm so sorry... mouth/tooth pain is the worst pain in the world! i've even had to go to the hospital before to get help b/c it was at nighttime. i've also had to have a tooth pulled in 2 different pregnancies (both closer to the end of the pregnancy) and all they could give me was novacaine (OUCH!).
Avatar n tn He explained that my nerve seems ok, though he thinks if i continue to have pain over the next few weeks when chewing still that I may need to have the crown redone. Since I have a localized pain in part of the tooth only when chewing, he thinks that a portion of the bonding may have failed. AND I MAY NEED TO HAVE THE CROWN TAKEN OFF AND REDONE? Do I trust this guy to do another CEREC Crown?
Avatar f tn What am I to do?? I'm 11 weeks pregnant and my wisdom tooth is kicking my as* it like it realigning my teeth and i can't even go get it pulled out!!! Anybody else went thru this??? I need baby safe pain solutions until after it's safe to get it pulled what can i do to ease the pain???
Avatar n tn Left untreated, periodontal disease will cause Heart related problems in the future! Once, the mouth gets bad enough, the bacteria travels through the bloodstream and wreak havoc on the internal organs.....Trust me, it's not worth the risk!
Avatar n tn You seem to trust your dentist that did your root canal. I felt I was conned by dentist into doing my root canal, cause I had no pain before he poked on my tooth and I felt pain (don't know how he poke, or maybe he was digging into my gum line or something), but he concluded that I needed root canal. Now, I am experiencing blooding at the root canaled tooth.
Avatar n tn I was wondering if the prednisone has any thing to do with it . I brush and floss 3 to 4 times a day. but now I have a lot of pain and am loosing my teeth. can you tell me why?
Avatar n tn Is it possible to have the gap partially filled (ie ask the dentist not to fill it right to the top for fear it might go too far)? How tricky would it be to finish this root canal treatment perfectly? How can I be sure to find a dentist who is capable? I'm from the UK and on vacation in the US. Thanks.
Avatar f tn f have a history of drug abuse? How long has he been doing this with the pills? You have reason to be concerned.Does his dentist know what he's doing? I would think if he's taking that many at once,he's running out before his next script is due.
Avatar f tn t fit, so started wearing a football guard splint temporarily, just to keep the sore tooth covered when I clench at night.My tooth is still very sore in the am. Two weeks after the rc, he retreated the tooth(2nd rc). Said he saw nothing suspicious this time. The second part of that 2nd rc was 11 days ago (again, he said it was clean as a whistle- he is baffled by my pain). I started PT for my TMJ and it has improved alot(but hasn't eliminated my tooth pain).
Avatar n tn You may find that dentists do not spend any time counseling their patients relative to the things that cause tooth and root decay, or how to get free from it. Why should they when they make money from dental disease. Dental decay is the number one disease in the world. The primary cause is diet, and no amount of dental work can stop the decay process.
Avatar f tn t know if the pressure in my upper teeth which I began to feel a few weeks before this was just a coincidence or related to the one bad tooth. First, dentist tried putting crown on tooth and then needed the root canal after pain got worse and then infection was discovered during the root canal. I needed lots of antibiotics afterwards. Seemed this dental work caused the pain in the upper teeth to become even worse and it felt like it was spreading.
Avatar f tn But, the last thing I want to do is to have the root canal re-done, or extract the tooth, because the tooth does not hurt. Has anyone who posted about this problem, ever recovered or know of anyone who recovered over time, without drastic measures?
Avatar m tn Sensitivity to hot or cold, throbbing pain, sensitivity to chewing or biting, etc. Is this the kind of pain you feel? Or more likely has the broke tooth damaged or affected the root? That's another reason they are suggesting you may have to have a root canal in the end. Will they be placing a temporary crown initially? This article gives a nice overview of treating a broken tooth. https://www.webmd.
