Wisdom tooth extraction jaw bone

Common Questions and Answers about Wisdom tooth extraction jaw bone


Avatar f tn I then went to the oral surgeon a week later for a consultation. He said I had bone loss near the wisdom tooth from the infection, which scared me. He told me to wait to take another dose of amoxicillin until the day before the extraction. My jaw is currently hurting right below the lower left wisdom tooth. Does this mean the infection has returned from the first dose of amoxicillin and if so, am I still ok to wait until a week from tomorrow to have the tooth extracted?
Avatar m tn I have developed what is either a tooth fragment or bone protruding through the inner lower jaw. I have probed it with (of all things) a butter knife and it is very painful when touched. Hard like a bone and white. The pain shoots down into my lower jaw. It is about 4mm long. What could this be?
Avatar n tn i under went a tooth extraction 9 days back.the tooth was taken of by driling the bone thats what the doctor said and he put stiches to the gum. for this he gave me brufen 200mg, amoxicilin 500mg and flagyl 400mg, but still im havig sever pain in my lower left jaw where my wisdom tooth was extracted. when i met my doctor to remove the stiches i complained about my situataion, he said its normal as for the bone beeing drilled.
Avatar f tn what ever happened with your jaw alignment problem?? because 2 months after my bottom wisdom tooth removals my jaw looks very uneven and still i have pain and numbness around the area of the removal. i have yet to get an x ray of my jaw but had x rays of the area where the removal took place. im just confused and dont know what to do.
Avatar n tn If it's getting worse, I would go back and have them check for a dry socket. Usually the pain from an extraction will get better over time. If it all of a sudden gets worse, we always tell patients they may have a dry socket which is most common when lower wisdom teeth are extracted. It may feel like the upper jaw but this may be referred pain. I would have it checked out because they can pack some medicine in there to help it feel better.
784382 tn?1376931040 It may be what we call a bony spicule, which is a small piece of tooth or jaw bone that is left in the socket after the extraction. They can remove it quite quickly and the area will heal up fast.
Avatar f tn I have braces on my upper jaw and I just got my lower wisdom tooth extracted, its been 5 days, the swelling did go down but I can notice that my face has changed. Do extraction of wisdom tooth make the face fat ? Thnk you.
Avatar f tn They can have a direct relationship to the alignment of your other teeth if they have no room to erupt. Not to mention the possibility of jaw bone problems with a tooth trying to erupt directly into it. If there isn't sufficient room they will impact and eventually push your other teeth aside or push into the jaw bone itself. Some have erupted out the side of the gum. All have had to have removal. Opposing molars are generally removed at the same time to prevent supraeruption.
1809287 tn?1316744936 about a week ago i had a tooth extraction done on my very back molar on my lower right side. the extraction went pretty well, although quite uncomfortable. afterwards, i felt somewhat okay, but about two to three days after i started to feel this uncomfortable pain in my lower jaw bone. the pain is felt in my jaw, my throat, my temple, my neck and my ear. i am having constant headaches.
Avatar f tn No it doesn't. When I had a wisdom tooth in the bone removed I swelled up after so bad I looked like I had the mumps lol. Day 3 to day 6 about. Ask your dentist, but don't get freaked out, it is probably normal.
481349 tn?1226710487 I recently had a wisdom tooth pulled from my top left side. The area has healed correctly and seemed fine. Now my whole left side of my face is in severe pain. Putting orajel on the teeth on that side doesn't help at all. The pain stops for a half an hour if I place orajel on the jaw joint inside my mouth. The pain is becoming unbearable and interrupting my sleep since I am up every half hour to put on more orajel and taking tylenol.
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 f tn Trismus is a common complication of lower wisdom tooth or molar extraction. If appropriate antibiotics is administered, it tends to resolove within 72 hours.
Avatar m tn Hi, I got a tooth extraction two to four years ago, the tooth was a molar right before the wisdom tooth on my lower right side.
Avatar n tn I had a wisdom tooth extracted over a year and a half ago. It had a cavity which had broken down to my gumline. The dentist just did a simple extraction, no surgery. The shot of novacane went so deep into my gum that I had soreness for weeks afterwards in my jaw bone. I have had earaches and jaw pain on that same side ever since. Our hospital offered a free oral clinic a couple of weeks ago and I went to have a swollen place under my tongue looked at.
Avatar m tn Hello I'm here because I had a wisdom tooth extraction on all 4 wisdom to which were impacted It's around 3 weeks since my surgery and in having a lot of jaw stiffness it lasts the whole day in wondering if this is because of the surgery and is this normal to happen
Avatar m tn the bone surrounding the wisdom tooth was fractured and it was the cause of the abscess. She even asked me if I got punched there (no). Dentist said she usually takes around 3 minutes to get that tooth out and for me it took nearly 15 minutes. She then said the infection was starting to spread to my ear and other parts of the head, and that's why I felt these headaches, and that with the tooth out I should see some relief.
Avatar m tn 5 yrs ago i had dental pain in my lower jaw,and dental surgeon diagnosed as wisdom tooth.doctor advised me for tooth extraction but i didn,t follow his advice.all these yrs i didn,t feel any complication.since one yr i can,t my mouth properly,sometimes i have severe pain.i cant take any food.for your sugesstion.
Avatar f tn The pain last for seconds only, I looked in the mirror to see any damage in my wisdom tooth, suddenly the tooth cracked. I ignore it, because the pain subsided, no swollen jaw and face no tooth ache at all. But after two days I started to feel sick, severe dizziness as if something is eating my energy inside my body, i feel pressure at the back of my head. Extreme fatigue, muscle ache and weakness, GERD, spaced out, balance problem.
Avatar f tn In some cases, when you have a very irregular bone next to the extraction site, especially very thin bone, after an extraction, it becomes like an edge of a knife, and will cut through. It happens, and if that is in your case, the dentist or an oral surgeon, needs to round the edge of that bone , it will then heal. It usually appear on extractions of lower wisdom teeth, on the tongue side, the bone there, can be very thin.
Avatar m tn Could it possibly be a jaw bone fracture related to the wisdom tooth extraction? If so, what should I expect from a pain standpoint? How long is the healing process? Etc... Any advice and/or insight is greatly appreciated. Havn't eaten much in 3 weeks, lost over 25 pounds the hard way! Thanks for your help!
Avatar n tn About a month ago i had a wisdom tooth taken out. It was healing ok but 5 days ago while biting a sandwich my jaw made a loud popping sound and since then i am not able to open my mouth more than an inch. i also have alot of swelling. What coul this be?
Avatar n tn My top left wisdom tooth is probably 3/4 of a centimetre down and fortunately it does not seem impede on the last molar. It does however face an odd direction which makes it hard to clean. It therefore is developing a cavity which is quite sizeable but not giving me any pain or discomfort - at this stage anyway. My theory was I would rather it rot out of my mouth before I would have to go to the dentist to have it extracted. I am 37 years of age and have a terrible fear of the dentist.
Avatar f tn s my wisdom tooth ,left lower jaw n the tooth is totally decayed n extraction is the only thing to do.Dentist prescribed amoxicillin n paracetamol 650mg for the pain . Said that tooth extraction will be done only after delivery . But I'm in so much pain even after taking medicines. Is there no safe anesthesia that can be used on me during extraction ?
