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 Okay, here's my story. 6 days ago I had my two bottom wisdom teeth out, which both were severely impacted and infected. I was put on antibiotics for 24 hours before my surgery. On day 5, I had to get my stitches removed. A huge liver clot emerged from my left socket that night, I was not doing anything it just came out. So I chewed on a tea bag for an hour to form another one. I have the grosest taste/smell in my mouth. Now, here is my question.
Avatar n tn every time i talk for more than a couple of minutes, my gums where the tooth was extracted seem to swell, and my throat begins to hurt,(becomes very sore...). my ear pops, ....all the e.n.t. could tell me was my muscles were very tight, and it could take weeks to go away.......im afraid that i have nerve damage. if you find out what happened to you, could you please let me know.....
Avatar m tn Ever since my wisdom tooth got infected two weeks ago I have had a sore throat that has not gone away. I also have what appears to be a very slight bulge (swollen lymph node?) on my neck on the same side as my wisdom tooth infection...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.
660300 tn?1224793961 I had two of my wisdom teeth removed three days ago. First day I couldn't feel the right side of my face (even my ear was numb) but it got better. Now I can't feel my teeth on the right side, can't feel the right half of my bottom lip and my chin. I am getting panic attacks just by thinking that it will not get better. Now and then I feel a little itch on my chin but when I want to scratch it, I don't feel anything. I am so scared!
Avatar n tn I had my wisdom teeth extracted. (#'s 17 and 32). I got dry socket, then got a sore throat and enlarged lymph node on right side of throat, and one on right side inner thigh. What could this suggest? Do I have an infection?
Avatar f tn I've been on antibiotics 3 X, every time I'm done, infection comes back, even after tooth extraction. Please see details below, I need your opinion. Thank You... Started with Left sore throat, then Gum Pain & hard white painful bump near #17 wisdom tooth. Got severe, hard to swallow, chew, painful. My reg. Dentist Rx'd Amoxicillin - took 6 days to start working. After swelling went down,did x-ray, he could not find any problem -tooth not abcessed.
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 n tn I strongly suggest that you see an oral surgeon asap and let the doctor take out the wisdom or wisdom teeth.The wisdom teeth can do damage to the bone and the adjacent teeth without the patient being aware of anything.
Avatar f tn The pain began about 4 weeks ago, wherein I had a brief respite of pain for about a week, then the pain returned and worse than before. I developed a sore throat and right enlarged tonsil. The throat remains sore. I went to my dentist and after a panoramic xray, she saw nothing wrong. Given the persistence of my pain, I returned to see a different dentist in the practice who did 2 more detailed xrays and saw a slight infection in wisdom tooth. I had the tooth removed the next day.
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.
Avatar f tn I am scheduled to get my wisdom teeth out this coming Friday. I took antibiotics two weeks ago due to the flue and my doctor prescribed me antibiotics for after the surgery. I am scared to take two antibiotics in one month. I heard that is not good for you. Also, I am not sure if I currently have an infection now. I went to the dentist last week and he didn't say I need antibiotics before but I'm slightly swollen on my cheek but no pain.
Avatar n tn I also have 2 impacted wisdom teeth that need to be removed once my wife's health insurance goes through. Recently i've had a sore throat I just can't get rid of. I've tried allergy medications but it won't stop. There is a lot of post nasle drip. Where I work there is a lot of mold, so that might be the reason. With the sore throat I've noticed a couple of weird spots on my tongue, and the back of my throat. You can see the images of the tongue here: http://www.getupandgonews.
2183382 tn?1337831541 Where my molar (next to my wisdom tooth) was is very sore. When I rinse my mouth I can feel it in my nose and the back of my throat. Anyway I'm kind of worried about having a dry socket or something...
Avatar m tn extraction of wisdom teeth is advised.
Avatar n tn - that was a week ago. - however, now I am experiencing the same pain behind my wisdom tooth. The gum is sore in a small region behind the tooth. I have pressure in my right ear and it's sometimes hard to swallow. DOES THIS RING A BELL WITH ANYBODY? I do clench my teeth, but I don't think this is TMJ. I'm not a doctor, but I am wondering if my wisdom tooth is creating infection problems for me.
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 n tn im in pain 24/7, i have a dry spot in my throat, and i wake up w/ my throat sore and dry,i wake up in the middle of the night having to hydrate my throat also.... and did i forget to mention i went to my primary doc., where they did blood test, and everything came up normal...so.....what the heck is going on with me? i have lost weight, as i am in constant pain, and can only eat soft foods...and i've become extremelly depressed.......
748543 tn?1463449675 Dental Occlusion must be synchronized with healthy Mandibular Function as it relates to a healthy head position and by extension a healthy posture. So why are teeth/occlusion so important for posture? In simple terms incorrect posture is due to a twisted spine, which barring accidents or skeletal abnormalities- like a short leg, is due to an incorrect position of the skull.
230262 tn?1316649534 He kept telling me it wouldn't hurt and I didn't believe him, particularly after a terrible experience with my wisdom teeth. The sad thing is that I have all this great two-thousand-dollar hardware in my mouth and no money for the crown! The severe weather you've had in your area has been on national and local news down here in Houston. The front just went through a few hours ago, but we didn't get a drop of rain. It's so dry now we have red-flag warnings with the screaming wind.
Avatar m tn   When the pressure caused by the mucus is there (or the food) it makes it so I feel like I can't even swallow saliva and my throat always feels sore.  It happens almost daily (where food goes into my nose).  I have GERD too but that doesn't seem to be the issue here, it happens on swallowing and not that the food comes back up.  The other symptom that happened after the salsa incident was that I lost my sense of smell (about 6 months or so after that).......
558301 tn?1215734456 Few days ago I went to the dentist concerned that my swollen lymph node, sore throat, aching jaw/sinuses, sensitive teeth & irritated mouth might be due to damaged/infected teeth/gums. Dentist reported no infection in teeth or gums though my panoramic x-ray showed two 'unusual' lesions in my jaw-bone behind my last molar -larger one close to last molar but not permeating the membrane & a smaller one further back.
Avatar m tn I am currently travelling in South Africa. I had my wisdom teeth removed only two and a half weeks ago and ended up kissing a girl who had molar taken out the day before we kissed. I would normally not consider kissing to contain any significant risk but it seems that it is possible both of us had open wounds in our mouths. There didn't appear to be any blood from either of us and both though my teeth are still a little sore from the operation. I do not know her status though I am negative.
Avatar n tn I believe root canals may work in some instances, but not in mine, that tooth should have been extracted years ago, I only want to save it for fear of not having a molar, since I only have 2 big molars on each side of my bottom and top (reason when I was a teenager the dentist at the time said I have too many teeth for the size of my mouth and that when my wisdom teeth were to come in I would probably suffer from severe headaches and needed to remove 4 healthy molar/bicuspid molar teeth, so le
Avatar m tn I am a healthy male in my late twenties. I had wisdom teeth extraction surgery 4 weeks ago. The doctor said nothing about a complication after the surgery, but I realized quickly that I have a hole at the location of my upper left wisdom tooth extraction site to my sinus. I am truly having a miserable time since then. I had a mild nose bleed the day after the surgery from both sides.
