Avatar m tn Once the wisdom teeth are removed, ares there jaw issues later in your senior years? Thus, does the jaw begin to break down or is not as strong.
Avatar f tn I had 3 wisdom teeth and 2 molers taken out a week ago. I am having a problem with the socket on the bottem right. My jaw on that part is still very swolen and tender. I was wondering if there is a salivery gland in that area that could have been damaged. This is because the socket is very swollen and if i run my toung up my gum on the out side liquid comes out and its very nasty. I have irigated it and it still does this. What can be causing this.
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.
4518471 tn?1355802457 So I had my wisdom teeth just over a week and I am still in pain not as much when I first got them taken out and this pass friday I called the nurse and she said to stop taking the strong pain killers "hydro" and have been really like feeling sick but did not have a cold or anything just felt bad.
Avatar f tn And I have shooting pain sometimes in my jaw bone. I've grinded and clinched my teeth for a while now, but have never had any of these issues before my surgery. Could this be TMJ? And when will the holes in my mouth heal/cover over? Any advice would be great, Thank you!
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 I had my top & bottom wisdom teeth out on the left side 6 weeks ago. They took them out because the left side of my face was swollen. It is still swolln now around the cheekbone & jaw bone, not sure what to do. If i run my fingers along the inside of my mouth between my gum and cheek i can feel a ridge, don't know if thats the cause.

Avatar m tn hi. i had my wisdom teeth removed 5 days ago. it was on the right side top and bottom, and both wounds have dissovable stitches. i am still finding it very painful and taking painkillers every 3-4 hours. how long will the pain last?
Avatar f tn I just had my third surgery today to remove the bone fragments behind the top of my cheek bone and filled the lower jaw bone to smooth out those pieces of bone. Now the whole right side of my face from my lower eye kid to my chin is super numb. Right down the middle! Even my tongue is frozen completely down the right side... I hope it will regain feeling and the pain everyday will go away. I am in Ontario Canada.
Avatar f tn Hello- 4 wisdom teeth extracted on May 8-age 34. Background info: Very anemic (Note: I let my medical doctor know I wanted to have wisdom teeth removed and she said it was ok. I also let the oral surgeon know I was very anemic.) Lower wisdom teeth: one partial boney and other completely boney.
Avatar f tn Hi everyone, I have planned a wisdom teeth removal this week on friday, all four wisdom teeth have to be removed adventually but they remove two at the same time and then another month two again. The problem is that I have wisdom teeth in my low jaw that had come trough but not completely. the surgeon said they have to be cut out and also that he has to remove some jaw bone around the teeth cause thet teeth can come out then.
Avatar m tn I want to know why is it necessary to remove wisdom teeth? What are positives except that removing wisdom teeth will not affect other teeth lining and may prevent chances of infection around wisdom teeth? What are negative sides? I am tired of this procedure or that procedure and going to here and there, and now this. I don’t want to complain but I am already struggling with poor general health, stress, anxiety and insomnia and my GP is no help.
Avatar f tn A little over a week ago I had all 4 of my wisdom teeth and cysts removed. On day 4 I had terrible pain and went back to the oral surgeon he said it was infected and had dry socket, he packed them two different times. Which helped for a while but since yesterday I have a horrible migraine around and behind my right eye and temples, and pain up and down my jaw bone top and bottom where they were removed. Do I still have dry socket or something else?
Avatar m tn My dentist advised this as he said I have the periodontal disease gene and that the wisdom teeth were causing bone loss. I have never had a known issue with these teeth. They had grown in completely years ago. I agreed to the procedure and now am regretting it. They had to be broken apart to get them out. Now I have pain from where - I am guessing - the jaw bone is sharp and is irratating the healing gum tissue.
Avatar n tn Hello, I've had 3 of my wisdom teeth removed about 9 weeks ago. The two left teeth where still covered in bone and it was a very painful recovery. Half the root of my lower left wisdom tooth is still in the bone and the left side of my lower lip and chin still haven't regained all sensation (not very nice feeling although you get used to it). Ever since the pain started to wear off (about 6 weeks ago) I've frequently woken up with a dislocated jaw.
Avatar n tn My wife is having pain in her jaw 3 weeks after having both of her lower wisdom teeth removed. She says that there is a knot in her jaw when she massages it and the knot kind of moves. Is this normal? If not, what could this be or what could it indicate? This is the right side and she had very little swelling after surgery and it felt better much quicker than the left side. Please let us know what we can do to help her get through this. Thank you.
Avatar n tn I am a 23 year old male who had his wisdom teeth removed about2 1/2 weeks ago. Just recently I was able to open my mouth completely since the surgery and noticed that in the hole where my lower right wisdom tooth was removed there is bone exposed. Also when I drink certain things, whether they be hot, cold or sweet, that I experience a sharp pain in my jaw when it comes in contact with that area. I was told that after my surgery that I might feel some discomfort for a while afterwards.
Avatar n tn I just had all 4 of my wisdom teeth out a week ago and im experiencing a few problems which i dont know if they are normal or not. First, I have a painful, hard lump on my jaw. Second, i have an opening in my gums in one area where my tooth was removed and it opens like a deep cut. Third, my teeth don't sit like they used to which is really uncomfortable and one tooth hurts when i eat because it feels like it doesnt fit properly with the tooth above it.
868998 tn?1239598812 I am a healthy 35 yr old female. I had all 4 wisdom teeth removed in Feb 16 2009. I complained for two weeks before the Oral Surgeon had me come in and do an xray that is when he agreed that things were not healing normally. He scheduled the second oral surgery a couple days later for March 23rd to remove bone fragments that he thought were interfering with the healing process.
Avatar n tn I have a hard knot/lump on my lower right jaw bone behind my wisdom tooth which is still there. I noticed it yesterday and it makes it hard to close my mouth or eat on that side and it's painful. I just wanted to know if anyone might know what it could be. I have jaw pain from time to time which makes my wisdom tooth ache because I have TMJ, so my doctor told me last year. If anyone has any ideas let me know.
Avatar f tn I got all 4 wisdom teeth extracted on March 30th, my one week follow up was just on Tuesday, where I got my stitches removed and showed how to keep my bottom holes cleaned. She asked how I felt, and at this point I hadn't done much chewing or jaw opening because I was eating soft foods until the stitches came out, so I said I felt great. My top stitches still have not dissolved yet and they're a little sore at the spot where the stitches are, I try not to mess with them.
Avatar n tn I have had TMJ problems for years since my wisdom teeth were removed at 18, which has worsened as a result of severe jaw clenching which I swear I would stop if it wasn't completely unconscious.. Before I started wearing my daytime NTI and a nighttime NTI when I sleep, I split 6 of my teeth requiring root canals/crowns on my lower first/second molars on both sides, and my first molar and second bicuspid on the left side.
Avatar m tn Hi Doctor, I was wondering if impacted wisdom teeth can cause mechanical bone pressure on the frontal bones of the skull as they grow in. I know the jaw is connected by a "hinge" but can impacted wisdom tooth growth cause substantial pressure on the bones above them to, if possible, break already fragile bone? Or is it impossible due to the jaw bone being "indirectly connected" to the skull? I'm not looking for a diagnosis, just theory.
