Wisdom teeth jaw hurts

Common Questions and Answers about Wisdom teeth jaw hurts


Avatar n tn The pain has slowly been lessening, to the point where its a stiffness in my jaw and only hurts if i tighten my jaw muscles. THe problem is that my mouth seems to be making a lot of saliva..more than normal. It is only comming from one side of my mouth (the side the hurts more than the other) and it and it sorta seems that it has a funny taste to it..maybe pus comming from the extraction site?? can anyone help me to tell me what this is?
1868815 tn?1412545357 HI, The wisdom teeth are situated deep in the jaw and hence their removal can lead to a lot of inflammation and indurations. It can cause pain and swelling, and associated headache and jaw pain. Locked jaw occurs because of involvement of the TMJ joint in the jaw. This however corrects spontaneously and forceful opening of the mouth should be avoided. Consult your Doctor. The answer is based on information provided. Exact advice is not possible without a proper examination and investigations.
Avatar n tn ( the symptons i have been having is headaches, pain down the back of my head/ neck, neck stiffness, throat hurts around adams apples area which makes it had to swallow, legs and arms both aches, heart palphartations, jaw and teeth ache. Can this really all be from my wisdom teeth?
Avatar f tn As for the teeth moving, it probably isn't due to the wisdom teeth as people without wisdom teeth have their teeth move as well.
Avatar n tn I had my bottom wisdom teeth remove 4 days ago and my top teeth hurts do you think I have nerve damage in my upper teeth
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 m tn on the lower left side of my mouth behind my second molar the gum is swollen and sore. the pain goes from the swollen gum through my jaw and into my ear. it hurts to swallow and yawn. it also hurts to open my mouth or close it all the way.is my wisdom tooth coming in? i also use dip tobacco.could that have anything to do with it?
Avatar n tn Okay, So I have been having this tension and pain in my jaw where my wisdom teeth are comming in. You can't see them at all, but the pain gets worse at night. I went to the dentist to get an x ray and it showed that they were coming in on a diagonal and pushing against the roots of the teeth next to them. The Dentist told me that wisdom teeth don't cause pain and so he checked me and told me that there was nothing that should be causing me pain.
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 n tn Now recently, mt lower right wisdom tooth is doing the same thing. My jaw has been feeling a little stiff and hurts when I open wide. Now, my mom is supposed to be scheduling an appointment for me to get my wisdom teeth pulled after finals, which is in like 20 days. I am starting to fear I have waited too long. Im an anxious kid and always have been, and I get nervous about things like this. I'm afraid I am waiting too long and it's getting me nervous. How long is tooooo long?
Avatar f tn My jaw cracks more then usual when chewing but I think its the weather changing not due to being pregnant.
Avatar f tn My wisdom tooth is growing on the right bottom of my mouth and it HURTS. My dad's going to take me to the dentist one of these days though to help about it. I've been taking ibuprofen these past 2 days *advil* to just ease the pain, but the swelling really hurts and got my node lymph glands next to my jaw a little swollen because of the wisdom tooth. Any way to help the pain or make the swelling go down? And how long will this last until my gum is normal again.
Avatar n tn The second time was 10 years later and she screwed up 3 inlays which are now cracked and offset. Now the 3 remaining wisdom teeth have huge holes/crack and are basically rotting away. I've been trying my best to keep them clean, using temporary filling to keep the holes sealed... but one has reached the root i suspect because when i packed it with temp filling last night it was on the floor in pain. I am terrified of going to the dentist, i'm also terrified of being put out.
1679695 tn?1304719741 Now i'm not sure what it is, but my jaw hurts pretty bad. It's only on one side and it's where the bottom jaw and upper jaw connect on my right side. I think it might be the fact that I only chew on that side? Or it might have something to do with the weather? It started this year about a month or two ago. So any suggestions on what it is?
Avatar n tn I had my wisdom teeth out a week ago and I still can't open my jaw more than a finger and a half. It doesn't hurt to chew, but there's an uncomfortable sensation in upper jaw/left ear, like there's pressure when I chew. Is this normal after having wisdom teeth removed? Will it go away? How long? What can I do to help? I'm going for my post-op checkup tomorrow but I'm pretty worried. Thanks.
Avatar n tn 6 weeks ago i had 4 wisdom teeth pulled since then i have had jaw pain, about 2 weeks ago i woke up and the hole side of my face was swollen and wouldnt go down, i went to the oral surgeon and he said it was food particles. i am having trouble opening my mouth and wen i move it side to side it clicks.
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.
Avatar n tn Okay i had my wisdom teeth out on monday . One tooth was part way threw the gums the top and bottom on the right side were no where near the surface and top left well there wasnt one. Anyways left side is fine feels fine. Right side of my mouth hurts like crazy. They gave me vicodin for the pain but i too that 2 hours ago and there is no change. They gave me antibiotics that i take as directed but now i have pain in my ear down threw my jaw to my chin on the one side.
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 f tn I had all four (three impacted) wisdom teeth removed thirteen days ago. My doctor did not prescribe any antibiotics which I thought was a touch odd since several of my friends have gotten theirs removed over the years and all had been prescribed preventatives.... in any case everything seemed to go normal, I followed all directions and as the days went by I seemed to get better in all ways but one...
Avatar n tn I was wondering if this could be a side effect of an opening in my sinus cavity after the extraction of my upper wisdom teeth. I'm also fairly concerned about the pain in my lower jaw as it makes it difficult to chew on anything harder than soft sliced bread. I'm wondering if the dizziness could be related to the surgery and if it will subside on its own?
Avatar n tn i got my wisdom teeth pulled 3 days ago,all 4 of them,on the third day my face is so swolen that it hurts to move talk,or swallow.it dont seem like its going down any,is this normal,and how do you know if you have dry socket.im taking penesillian 500 mg and perkacote.please help sorry about the spelling errors.
Avatar m tn They sure are coming in. The pain you are experiencing is nothing. Wait until they start cutting through the gums. I had all my wisdom teeth removed when they started coming in. My dentist said I did a smart thing for the reasons chances are I will have problems with them and they do not serve of no purpose. She also said some peope think you need them to chew but it is not true because we can't chew back that far and if we try we will choke. The molars are used for chewing.
Avatar n tn the bottom wisdom teeth were already out but leaning twards my other teeth causing them to be slightly impacted I suppose but I didnt need an oral surgeon apparently the dentist did the extraction. it took about an hour to do the one that was causing the pain and about 30 min to do the other one. The dentist was wonderful considering my lack of oral care thusfar, I skipped work for a day and went back today, when I got home I was throbbing and It hasnt stopped.
Avatar n tn They said it could be allergies but my jaw hurts right where my wisdom teeth are my glands in my throat stay swelled up and I have had more ear infections than I have ever had in my life. Sometimes but not always when i open my mouth it sounds like bones crunching and it will hurt then it goes away. The dentist told me that wisdom teeth doesn't cause that but he also said he didn't think I needed them cut out but I went to another dentist later on and he said I should have them cut out.
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.
