Common Questions and Answers about Wisdom teeth infection years later


Avatar n tn I had my two top wisdom teeth pulled over 12 years ago and I still have a gaping hole where one of teeth used to be, I have been back to the dentist numerous times over the years because I think it gets infected. It starts to hurt really bad, then there is a blister type thing that fills the hole and eventually it goes down, but then my jaw will hurt for a week or so and I won't be able to open my mouth all the way no matter what I do.
Avatar n tn Went to a new dentist, who seemed shocked that I had three wisdom teeth still in my mouth. Said I should get these out to avoid future problems. Is it necessary to take these out NOW? They are not causing any discomfort.

Avatar f tn My husband is 21 and the dentist says he needs his wisdom teeth taken out. They are not impacted but they are growing in crooked and will not grow out all the way and are causing a bacteria build up. If we wait until they all pierce through the skin can he simply get them pulled and not have oral surgery.
Avatar m tn Call it an erupting wisdom tooth from the back edge of the gums inline with the teeth. First dentist said that they'd need to do surgery including cutting to fix it urgent which a number of online people make similar statements. The second dentist, a New Jersey Unversity and Dental School graduate, didn't even mention surgery although she needs to take better care of her teeth and take a special rinse.

Avatar n tn I was 17 (19 years ago) when I had maxillofacial surgery to correct an open bite issue. My wisdom teeth were extracted at the same time and my jaws wired shut for 6 weeks until everything healed. I have been very happy with the results but in the last 4 years I have had 4 root canals in the upper front incisors and canines. Is there any documented correlation between upper jaw surgery and the rate of incidence of root canals in the affected jaw?
Avatar n tn I have had a small hard lump behind my right ear for about 2 years now, it doesnt hurt or itch, Iv'e noticed it since my wisdom teeth started growing out 2 years ago. It never really bother me, and some times it just goes away for a few days and then comes back.
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 Im 7mo and all 4 of my wisdom teeth are coming in. i was planning on getting them removed. there is a lot of discomfort of them pushing my teeth together but i don't know if i should do it know i know im pregnant.
Avatar n tn Other than the gum problems, I have no pain or problems with the wisdom teeth. I broke one wisdom tooth several years ago and had it pulled. Of the 3 remaining teeth two have fillings, one of which is failing and needs replacing. Does it make sense to have them removed now, when I'm not having a problem with the teeth themselves?
Avatar m tn I am 34 and have a ton of crowding in my bottom teeth. I was unable to have my lower wisdom teeth removed 5 years ago because of the risk of oral nerve damage. I was told that I had a 99% chance of having permanent nerve damage so they would only remove the uppers which I had done.
Avatar n tn finally my dentist found that I have impacted wisdom teeth on all four sides. The 4 wisdom and 4 molars are all inside horizontally going head-to-head. Also in my lower jaw my dentist said that I have periodontal pockets (15mm deep), which are slightly white on the top. I am scheduled to extract them very soon. My question is whether it is known for such a condition to cause general illness, mild tiredness, stomach issues (such as diarrhea > week) etc?
Avatar n tn It was one of my lower wisdom teeth that was removed and now my front 4, bottom teeth hurt terribly. Could this be caused by shifting? I'm really confused and tired of being in pain. Any suggestions?
Avatar f tn What do do? All my wisdom teeth are growing in at the same time and I have a horrible headache. I knkw I can't get them removed anytime soon becauae of being pregnant. Is there any thing I can do to help ease the pain?
Avatar m tn Though my wisdom teeth have started growing, they have not yet grown past the gum (I am 20 years old). My right side is fine. Is this a result of my wisdom teeth growing even further? Or is it an infection? I cannot close my mouth without biting into it and I think the blood may have come from me biting down in my sleep. I can't even eat without tearing up. The adjacent molar also aches, and I am scared that if it was an infection that it may be spreading. Any insight would be appreciated!
