Wisdom tooth drainage

Common Questions and Answers about Wisdom tooth drainage


Avatar f tn Two weeks ago I had a severe toothache went to dentist and put on an antibiotic one week later wisdom tooth extracted pain still persists, drainage, foul taste and smell, upset stomach, pain in jaw and ear and sore throat. Spoke to the dentist and was instructed to continue antibiotic and salt water rinses. I finished the antibiotic and all symptoms still present is this normal and should I be doing something else. I am nervous that I should be taking more antibiotics or doing something else.
Avatar n tn Maybe I have the tooth # wrong. I still have my wisdom teeh and I had 4 teeth pulled before braces. I think it is a 2nd molar.. upper jaw left side. Does that make a difference in your recommendation?
Avatar n tn s got a tooth abscess in a healthy tooth and that the tooth should be extracted. He said it is unusual in cats and that they don't know the cause. He also suggested some antibiotics for a few days before the surgery to help with the infection. Just wondering if it is worth trying to save the tooth. Go through the course of antibiotics and see if he gets better. My vet made me feel like I was just being cheap and that conventional wisdom is to just remove the tooth.
Avatar n tn I am the reason it ruptured because I was pressing down on it and I worry that I may have pushed some of the infection to the brain. I know I swallowed some of the drainage. I have tried to explain this to a doctor here but I can't seem to get him to understand my concerns.
Avatar f tn The dentist misdiagnosed my problem, thinking it was an impacted wisdom tooth. Two days later my face was disfigured and I was in the ER getting antibiotic iv's and morphinr for pain. Since then, the tooth was extracted. However, no drainage was preformed. Leaving the grapefruit on my face. Now, I'm sick as a dog in all the infection. How can I get through this quicker and safely? In gargaling slightly with warm salt water. Rinse and spit frequently. And on antibiotics.
Avatar n tn I have a bum on my gum on the left side of my face behind the last tooth. Some people are saying it might be a caker sore or an abscess. The bump became bigger and I noticed a white substance inside of the bump. It grew bigger than with the help of hot water and salt it began to drain. First question what is this on my gum? How long does it take to heal? and Should I go to the dentist after it fully heals?

Avatar f tn Its safe to get wisdom tooth out when pregnant im ONly 6 week and My tooth is coming out so its very painful is ir safe to take out
Avatar n tn d from the wisdom tooth? i went to the clinic a few months ago for the tooth And the Doctor said. she required a dentist for the tooth problem. she looked inn my ear and said everything looks normal. i have had swollen glands in the past. and i had her look at thoes also. she replied they Look normal!! iam fairly scard about this situation and dont know what to do?
Avatar n tn I had a root canal on an abscessed tooth Monday. Today I woke up and the tooth is draining pus. Is this normal? I am on a pretty strong antibiotic and am going to have my tooth restored in a couple days. But now I'm concerned about this drainage.
Avatar n tn The doctors say that I have a swollen tonsil which could be caused by my right wisdom tooth which is incredibly slow at coming out. However my dentists say that the wisdom tooth is fine and minor infection is normal. I have always slept on my stomach and I have always slept quite soon after eating. 6 months ago I read that those are the worst possible things to do so now I always enure that I sleep 3 hours after eating and that I sleep on my back only. However I am still getting the problem.
Avatar n tn if my x-ray shown i have a cyst forming near my upper left wisdom tooth, should i have it taken out as soon as possible or should i wait until it is fully grown?
Avatar f tn s called) and when I went back he told me I had a really bad infection under the tooth in front of my bottom right wisdom tooth and it would need root canal treatment as the infection is really close to the jaw bone... I had no pain in that tooth but I thought back to a few months prior when I was having painful aches in my jaw, it felt like I couldn't open my mouth and so it made sense... Ok I said do it... but then he went ahead and removed the wisdom tooth behind the infected tooth...
Avatar f tn I am 62 years old, and have been healthy. Last April I had an infected wisdom tooth removed. Weeks before and after I had terrible sinus issues (NEVER had a sinus infection before) Dentist discovered a tiny fistula, a hole to my sinus. Told me not to blow my nose for 3 weeks. When I went back, he said it was closed (and in fact, foul tasting drainage had stopped) but x ray showed my sinus was still infected, my sinus was still clogged. I was on assorted antibiotics for 6 months.
Avatar m tn Thanks doctor. i am 26 now, my wisdom tooth teethes almost completely. is it safe to remove it. i am scared of jaw fracture :-). beside this wisdom tooth, there are 2 other ones but they are ok, not hurts me at all.
Avatar f tn Why doesn't he just fill the cavity? I never heard of pulling a tooth because of a tiny cavity. My dentist doesn't work like that. I lost one wisdom tooth because I injured it but the other three are fine and dandy and I intend to keep them. I don't understand this pull happy approach.
Avatar n tn if my x-ray shown that there is a cyst forming near my left upper wisdom tooth, should i have it taken out as soon as possible, or should i wait until the tooth is fully grown? would a wisdom tooth grow back once it's taken out?
5739386 tn?1378836460 I'm having a real bad tooth ache and it my top and bottom wisdom tooth in the back. Ik it's ok to get it pulled while you pregnant. Just need an ok by my doc. But the thing about it is being awake while it happens..... Have anyone had it done before?
Avatar f tn Trust me i know i need serious work done too i got one more wisdom tooth to go then i have to get 2 crowns done and a tooth pulled all after the baby is here which will be soon
Avatar f tn On the bottom left of my mouth behind the last tooth the gums hurt really bad, even if I eat just a banana. Could it be my wisdom tooth? How do I tell? Or do I just have to wait it out?
Avatar m tn A dentist told me to extract my 6th tooth and he can push the 7th tooth into the place of 6th tooth for later wisdom tooth (I did not mention the wisdom-8th tooth with him). Then, in such case, I thought may be the wisdom tooth can have a place to grow up. I'm wondering if the act of "pushing" the 7th tooth to replace the 6th tooth is possible? How long would it usually takes? (Few months or a year?
Avatar f tn Yes. I just had my wisdom tooth and an infected tooth removed. They didnt put me to sleep but they did numb my mouth while awake.
Avatar f tn Impacted lower wisdom tooth is rarely the culprit of temporomandibular disorder. However, removal of impacted wisdom tooth yields long term dental denefits.
Avatar f tn if the problem is a wisdom tooth pull it. if you are using wisdom teeth as an example of never having a tooth pulled and another tooth is the problem get the root canal. root canals sound scary but they cause minimal pain and its better for the overall health of your mouth to keep teeth if possible. good luck!
Avatar f tn can i get my wisdom tooth pulled im only 17 and my wisdom tooth started growing out of nowere literally
11129330 tn?1430878608 I'm 34 weeks & I just noticed that my wisdom tooth is starting to come out, has anyone else's starting coming out during pregnancy?
Avatar f tn I had my wisdom tooth pulled out at about 18 weeks with no problems. In fact I didn't bleed (didn't even need gauze in the chair) or need any pain killers whatsoever & ate lunch about an hour after. I'm not kidding myself, I know I got lucky as I've heard some nasty stories and your experience may not be anything like mine. You have to weigh it up, if it's causing you pain or is infected/impacted then it's worth doing!
