Wisdom teeth extraction jaw problems

Common Questions and Answers about Wisdom teeth extraction jaw problems


Avatar f tn Hi. I can't believe I allowed the dentist to take out my wisdom teeth a week ago, they were all in perfect alignment & functioned like perfectly normal teeth, minus one which had grown in from the side & the other one which was impacted... But I probably only had pain twice whenh they were coming through, then after that I had no pain at all again.
Avatar f tn Plus some bad breath (which troubles me alot). Is this a normal symptom after wisdom tooth extraction? I brush my teeth twice a day, and frequently gargle with salt water and listerine. Hope to get some opinion and suggestions.
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 n tn He explained that because some doctors need to get into a small areas, and of course with all the tools needed for wisdom teeth extraction, that her jaw was like hyperextended to a point, which in turn causes TMJ. She has done everything to feel better. Ice and heat packs, no chewing gum, only eating soft foods. I feel really bad for her. She is miserable and in pain on both sides of her jaw, right in front of the ear. I am going to take her into an ENT. I appreciate everyone's stories.
382218 tn?1341185087 After struggling for some time (local anesthetic) applying all his weight to my jaw, nearly breaking my jaw trying to get one of the wisdom teeth out, my friend's dad came into the room and asked what was wrong. My friend's dad took the pliers (or whatever they were) looked into my mouth, and with a twirl, got my tooth right out without any problem. That day I had all four impacted wisdom teeth removed under just a local anesthetic.
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 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 One more thing to note is that the jaw locking has happened since I was about 15 I'm now 27, now there's a pop (after the Wisdom teeth removal) though. 1. My left side of the jaw is in pain top and bottom without (Vicodin, Motrin, or Tylenol) 2. One of my Old crowns on that same side at the top is in pain everytime I do anything that requires me to lift or bend down where I'm exerting pressure (e.g.
Avatar n tn I always have to pop my jaw before I can open my mouth fully. I had my two bottom wisdom teeth removed almost a week ago. The pain in the tooth area is almost gone, it looks good, the swelling is gone, and the stitches are starting to come out on their own. However, my jaw will not pop and open like it usually does. During the procedure the dentist applied a LOT of pressure to my jaw in both directions (left and right) as well as back/down.
467070 tn?1224628977 he had put an imense amount of pressure on my jaw when he was extracting my tooth, he was hanging on my head to try to get the tooth out, all along the extraction tool slipping of my tooth, and cracking into the other teeth in my mouth...!!!! ATYPICAL FACIAL PAIN is nerve damage right? my jaw /face muscles spasm, and my throat muscles spasm sooo bad it hurts...when i talk, it hurts more.....my teeth throb, and my gums feel like they are on fire!!! this is a nightmare...!!!! DR.
Avatar f tn I had all 4 of my wisdom teeth taken out 3 weeks ago (they hadn't started coming through yet, but apparently on x-ray they were going to cause problems). I was prescribed antiobiotics for a week and I finished the course. However, my teeth next to the socket and the gum around still feel achy and tender. I'm worried - what's wrong? I've been on solid food for ages now, but my teeth/gum/jaw (can't quite pinpoint the pain) still aches every day. Any suggestions? Thanks!
Avatar f tn I will have braces in a few months, but before the dentist said i needed to have 9 teeth removed( 1 baby+4 premolars+4 wisdom). On Tuesday, I went to have my 4 premolars+1 baby tooth pulled. Today is friday and it is still SUPER PAINFUL!!! the pain is NOT located at the extraction sites, it is located on a surrounding tooth. If google(( U.S. Tooth Numbering Chart ("Universal" system) )) is correct, i had tooth 21 removed BUT the pain is located on tooth 22 - which was NOT pulled.
660300 tn?1224793961 Try and stay positive as you could still recover - I read a post from someone on another forum recently that got feeling back after a couple of years. I had two lower wisdom teeth out mid February and was left with a numb toungue, jaw, lip and chin.
Avatar f tn I leave in 2.5 weeks. I have a feeling I'll have to get all my wisdom teeth out, and recovery can take a while. Also, it will be much more financially practical in a month. Is it feasible to wait about a month to see the dentist, or is there a serious risk of complications?
Avatar f tn Potential problems caused by the presence of properly grown-in wisdom teeth include infections caused by food particles easily trapped in the jaw area behind the wisdom teeth where regular brushing and flossing is difficult and ineffective. Such infections may be frequent, and cause considerable pain and medical danger." If you don't feel comfortablt taking antibiotics, don't....
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 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!
481349 tn?1226714087 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. What could cause this type of pain and who do I need to see? Should I go back to the dentist even though my teeth only seem to hurt in conjunction with the jaw?
657020 tn?1238041118 When I was 16, I was supposed to have the teeth next to my wisdom teeth pulled out to make room for my wisdom teeth, but I only had one of them pulled. I do apologize for the lengthy post, but it's hard to ascertain which symptoms are caused by which conditions. Thank you.
230262 tn?1316649534 If you have the root removed your pain will be gone (no root, no nerve). People never need pain meds for root canals. If the extraction is a simple extraction (all teeth are besides wisdom teeth) you will not have much pain either. Typically very few people ever need pain meds. I understand your worried and addicts need more meds than other people.
