Wisdom teeth extraction jaw problems

Common Questions and Answers about Wisdom teeth extraction jaw problems


Avatar m tn And now before I came across this I did some research about it and I have found alot of things of people having the same problems with the dislocating jaw. But my absolute main question is this due to the extraction of the wisdom teeth?? Like from opening my mouth a little too wide that they done damage??? As the surgeon said himself my teeth were the most difficult he had encountered removing.
Avatar m tn I have been suffering with a pain in the left eye cheek and jaw for the last 25 years. I just been for a private consultation and told I have to live with the pain. 10 years ago I was diagnosed with Tempoporamandubluar joint disorder. I would be grateful if anyone has experienced a similar problem and would be grateful for any help from anyone who is experiencing similar problems...
Avatar m tn Dear Patient Yes, if you do have TMJ dysfunction extraction of the wisdom teeth could exacerbate the problem. Let the oral surgeon know, sometimes they will use a prop which will allow you to bite on it and at the same time not have you stretch to far open. Secondly the x-ray you had done probably was a Panorex x-ray which I would not consider as a proper x-ray for diagnosing TMJ dysfunction. In order for a proper diagnosis of your TMJ condition I would recommend seeing a TMJ expert.
Avatar f tn Hi, Actually, evolution has shortened the lower jaw, thereby making wisdom teeth (or the third molar) obsolete. Many people today are born without them at all. Those of us that have them, if they are crooked or impacted, it's recommended for removal. They can have a direct relationship to the alignment of your other teeth if they have no room to erupt. Not to mention the possibility of jaw bone problems with a tooth trying to erupt directly into it.
Avatar n tn one year of painful swollen lump on left side of palate. Came after wisdom toothe extraction. is worse when sinusus get filled. Mouth tastes like blood. Jaw locks with swallow difficulty. Help been everywhere.
Avatar n tn If it's getting worse, I would go back and have them check for a dry socket. Usually the pain from an extraction will get better over time. If it all of a sudden gets worse, we always tell patients they may have a dry socket which is most common when lower wisdom teeth are extracted. It may feel like the upper jaw but this may be referred pain. I would have it checked out because they can pack some medicine in there to help it feel better.
Avatar f tn A mild swelling may occur in many cases. Here I found information on wisdom teeth ( www.webdentist.
481349 tn?1226710487 I recently had a wisdom tooth pulled from my top left side. The area has healed correctly and seemed fine. Now my whole left side of my face is in severe pain. Putting orajel on the teeth on that side doesn't help at all. The pain stops for a half an hour if I place orajel on the jaw joint inside my mouth. The pain is becoming unbearable and interrupting my sleep since I am up every half hour to put on more orajel and taking tylenol.
Avatar n tn But then again, if that wisdom tooth continues to poke through and bash into the problem tooth that in itself could cause problems and at least with extraction the wisdom tooth would have some space - even if it does grow to the side.. Hmm so confused!
Avatar n tn About a month ago i had a wisdom tooth taken out. It was healing ok but 5 days ago while biting a sandwich my jaw made a loud popping sound and since then i am not able to open my mouth more than an inch. i also have alot of swelling. What coul this be?
Avatar f tn Your headache is more than likely due to the extraction of your wisdom teeth. Your jaw was open extra wide, and the muscles leading from there to your head could be spasming or understandably sore.
Avatar n tn The TMJ symptoms could be related to trauma from the surgery and is one of the risks involved with extraction of wisdom teeth. You should have your dentist or the oral surgeon thoroughly examine you jaw joints.
Avatar m tn A week has gone by from all four impacted wisdom teeth were surgically removed. My jaw on the right side feels like it is locked. I can only open my jaw 1 inch. When I try to open it farther I get excruciating pain and it won't open. Left side is fine. I was very swollen the first three days after surgery. What should I do?
Avatar n tn Assuming you are referring to trismus after lower wisdom teeth revoval. Trismus may last 2-3 days after surgical procedure of lower wisdom teeth removal. If appropriate antibiotics is administered, trismus tends to resolve after 3 days.
Avatar f tn Its difficult to walk because there is such a throbbing pain every time I take a step or bend over. It hurts my surrounding teeth when I clench my jaw. Is this normal? Or could this be an infection? I also cant open my jaw very wide without pain.
Avatar n tn I thought at first that the pressure may have been related to my wisdom teeth, so I had them removed last week. Since then, the head pressure has been much worse. It only alleviates to a tolerable level when I lay down. But once I get up again and start moving around, it comes back. I hope that the pressure/headaches are related to my jaw problems. I push on my jaws and massage them with alot of pressure and it seems to help with the head pressure a little bit.
Avatar f tn I have 3 teeth in need of extraction and one in need of a root canal. It ***** to have to wait.
Avatar n tn I'm not sure what my topic is .... I had all 4 of my wisdom teeth pulled a week ago. The dentist who pulled them had me awake with local pain killers. The right two were the hardest to get out and they spent an hour extracting them. I knew when they were doing it that they were pulling fairly hard on my jaw and possibly unhinging it as I go to a chiropractor often to get my jaw aligned.
Avatar f tn You can get nerve pain from teeth extractions. There is another injury board where people post from dental injuries and one of the "common" ones is from wisdom teeth extraction. It appears the longer you wait the higher the risk of nerves being intertwined with the tooth. Did the pain start shortly after the tooth extraction?
Avatar n tn I am assuming that these were wisdom teeth. I am also assuming that x-rays were taken before the teeth were extracted.If this was the case I don't think there is anything to worry about. If not I would consider getting another opinion.
1809287 tn?1316744936 i am due to get my wisdom teeth removed in a short period of time and am considering putting it off until all this pain is gone. ive had a lot of work done on my teeth in the last month, including root canals and even another extraction, all of which went by smoothly and the healing process was quite fast, however, this time around, it is becoming unbarable. i find myself in tears after hours of constant pain. i would love some answers. please help!
