Wisdom teeth extraction lymph nodes

Common Questions and Answers about Wisdom teeth extraction lymph nodes


Avatar n tn Hi, I had 3 wisdom teeth removed on 4/1. They were able to remove the teeth intact without cutting my gums or breaking the teeth. I know some swelling is normal, but I'm having slight pain on the glands under my ears. Is this normal? Mainly, the glands feel swollen, but I have no temperature and the clots are still in place. On one side, the clot looks black like it was blood and on the other side, the clot looks greyish. Just want to be sure nothing is wrong and this is normal.
Avatar n tn I thought healing was going smoothly until the week after, my lymph nodes (neck) on the side where my tooth was pulled became extremely swollen. I freaked out because this never happened to me when I had my other wisdom teeth pulled out. Most of the swelling went down in about 4 days. The dentist also prescribed me antibiotics for it, which I finished in a week. However, it has been 3 months now and when I look in the mirror, I can notice that the swelling hasn't completely gone down.
Avatar n tn Hello, Your wisdom teeth seems to grown towards your cheek causing discomfort whenever it touches the cheek. It can lead to potential crowding or malocclusion of the remaining teeth due to inadequate space on the jaw or in the mouth. Get it seen by a dentist. Your dentist may advise to take some analgesic for pain relief. You may need extraction. Do keep us posted. Best of luck and regards!
Avatar n tn I am 29 years old and had both bottom wisdom teeth (I was only born with the 2 bottom.) extracted 4 almost 5 months ago. To make this easier, here is the run down of events. I am in extreme pain and not only are the lumps unsightly it is disconcerting that these do not have a glimmer of receding. - Had teeth removed on Monday, March 3, 2008. - Right side of face blew up on that Thursday after what was seemingly progressive healing.
Avatar m tn the bulge feels hard and painless, and can be mistaken for a muscle but I'm not sure because I don't know what lymph nodes are supposed to feel like. A week ago I went to the dentist and got screened for oral cancer. They took x-rays and the dentist said I was fine. I’m starting to get worried though, as the sore throat is persistent. I’m hoping that it’s due to the infected wisdom tooth (which I plan on getting removed upon clearance of infection).
1809287 tn?1316748536 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!
Avatar f tn The ache may be from food being stuck in there and rotting away resulting in a bad taste. I just got my own wisdom teeth out about a week ago too and had that happen to me as well. Maintain your hygiene and it may resolve on its own. If not, probably dry socket and a visit to the dentist may help with that.
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.
Avatar m tn Impacted wisdom tooth might be serious at any stage, so you may consider about removal of wisdom teeth. Wisdom tooth can cause some risky dental issues such as pericoronitis, tooth decay, gum disease, periapical infection, etc. Also it can damage the structure of the jawbone. So, don’t delay and contact dentist as soon as possible. Treatment: • Extraction of wisdom tooth. • Radiotherapy. • Reconstruction surgery for impacted jawbone.
Avatar f tn It was the same lump, but much larger, that was the reason I had to have the wisdom tooth taken out. How do you know that's lymph nodes and not some kinda of cyst? Just curious because I can't get any answers and am thinking that maybe that lump is causing the problem I'm having..Hope you find some answers. Good luck, I'll be watching you posts.
Avatar f tn I took antibiotics 4 times the 2 of them was for other reasons. So now im thinking either for tb or lymphoma but as you mentioned after 2 wisdom teeth extraction and only 3 days antibiotics and no ibbuporfen (idiot dentist) and then a 10 day full course that made the first lymph bode shrink to 1.5 cm-2cm without re-expansion i might order new blood tests adding the tb ones.
Avatar f tn I'm 24, and I had my wisdom teeth taken out about three years ago, and everything has been free of complications, until possibly now. It started as a sore throat, swollen lymph nodes ect; and infection, and I noticed I had a small sore were my wisdom tooth used to be. Over three days the infection has gotten much worse. It's a constant ache in my jaw, and is very painful to open my mouth or chew. the area is hot, very swollen, and tastes kinda like blood.
Avatar m tn If your wisdom tooth is trying to come in there is infection present, no matter how minimal. The lymph nodes collect the bacteria. They can stay swollen for months even AFTER the infection is gone. If your wisdom tooth becomes impacted the lymph node will stay swollen. Think of them as a cemetery for dead bacteria. It takes a long time for the body to eliminate the dead bacteria they hold. Has he recommended the tooths extraction?
Avatar n tn It has been 7 days, I have been putting heat pack like my doctor told me to but it's not going away or not getting smaller, not getting bigger. The problem is that I had right lower side wisdom teeth extraction about a moth ago from very inexperienced dentist. I developed Dry socket and I have been taking medication such as PCN for 7 days, Amoxicillin for 10 days and Mortrin 600mg TID for a month, and I developed skin rash.
Avatar n tn I haven't been to the dentist in years, but the last time I went I was told I needed my wisdom teeth out. I didn't even consider it because I heard it costs thousands and I had/have no insurance. Since then I have had 2 chipped teeth (1 bicuspid, 1 1st molar) that seem to be a result of crowding due to 3rd molar eruptions. I have taken pain killers almost daily for weeks and I know that is unhealthy so I'm starting to get concerned.
Avatar f tn Have you noticed a foul odor or taste emanating from the tooth socket? The lymph nodes in the your jaw or neck should also be enlarged if you are experiencing a dry socket. It seems to me that it is such an easy diagnosis they could not miss it. I suggest that you consult with an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. They are dental specialists who have not only completed 4 years of dental school, but have also completed at least four years of a surgical hospital residency.
Avatar f tn Just a follow up i went to an great endocrinologist who also performs general medicine and he told almost instantly not to worry cause its from my 2 wisdom teeth extraction (upper and down) from the right side. Whats your opinion can an extraction cause a lymph like this and how long will it stay in this condition.
572651 tn?1333939396 I was hospitalized for wisdom teeth extraction at the age of 18. A nurse let me know there was a patient there with the same name scheduled for a hysterectomy the same day. (This was long before HIPAA privacy regulations!) I went into the OR repeating, "It's my teeth. It's my teeth." I was so relieved to wake up and see teeth in the specimen cup on my bedside table. (Another practice you won't see today. All pieces and parts go to the lab these days.
Avatar m tn I went to UAB dental school and they pulled it out for me (quite an ordeal...it seemed much worse than my wisdom teeth 10 years ago). I was given a LOT of lidocane and then some other kind of injection as well, since I will still feeling pain. Anyway , the student dentist told me there was an infection, but not quite an abscess. At this point , there is massive swelling in my gum and my lymph nodes under my jaw are swollen are sore.
Avatar n tn I hope your Dentist has given you some antibotics if you've had any scaling done or other procedure (tooth extraction, root canal etc.), swollen lymph nodes under your arm pits usually a sign of tooth releated irritation. Wisdom teeth can also cause inner ear problems. Chiropractor: I would be extremely careful having any neck related manipulation. Some studies have shown that this can increase your risk of stroke by 20%.
Avatar f tn I should mention at this time I was experiencing lots of pain with the eruption of my wisdom teeth. My teeth are already very overcrowded so there was no room at all for my wisdoms to come through in the first place but they pushed through anyway and pushed my teeth closer together. It got to the point where the amount of pressure in my head became extreme. My vision was blurry, I was super sensitive to light and I felt pressure in my sinus and ears. I also had pain in my left arm.
Avatar n tn One of the major main side-effects of Pericoronitis is digusting breath, a rotting/pus'y discharge around your wisdom tooth as well as swolen lymph nodes and a constant choking on phlegm.
Avatar n tn It could be a hidden jaw infection that might not show up in a MRI I had two MRI of my head and high resolution scan of my sinus and panoramic of my teeth and mouth super high tech equipment my dentist was showing off and telling me it was the very best this and that all of these test found NOTHING finally Many doctor just told me it was chronic fatigue or fibromyalgia see I do not believe these are real illness they are caused from something I was lucky we had read about dental cavitatio
Avatar f tn , flu like feeling, blurred vision, fatigue, wheezing, nausea, pressure on my head, major brain fog, dry heaves, swollen lymph nodes weight loss, tremors and just felt so out of it, like a zombie I had million test all negative. . My ND told me he has seen people come in wheel chairs to his office because of dental infections., many root canal related infections.
Avatar n tn It's strange but usually I do heal real quickly when it comes to work on my teeth. Like you I had my four wisdom teeth out (all of which were impacted) and I was back to work after a few days. I've had other root canals done on different teeth and a crown and fillings before and never had anything like this happen. The weird thing is that my regular dentist had already completed all stages of treatment but just hadn't had time to put on a permanent filling at the final stage.
Avatar m tn Well at first I believed it to be a lymph node and before that I never even bothered to check out my nodes. I showed this to the doctor and he checked it out and thought the glands were "slightly" swollen. A month later I had an ultrasound on the area and the report came back stating that nothing was abnormal about the Submandibular gland this was in march of this year.

Avatar n tn i have had all the same problems that everyone here has discussed, i have had every test you can think of, ct's mri, xray, tmj, scans of lymph nodes, light down my throat, all came back negative, i have had a constant fullness of the ears, dull to severe pain under my left side of my jaw, feels like a neck tie tied way to tight around my throat, last winter i had about a 3 month spell of dizziness/vertigo, and the thought of food gagged me, i lived on antivert and phenegren, that went away when
Avatar n tn She has had it for about two weeks now and is very concerned. She had her lower wisdom teeth taken out two months ago and the extraction sites have healed normally. The only medication that she has been on for seven months duration is Minocycline for acne. Her diet has not changed dramatically since the onset of the orange discoloration on the tongue.
