Wisdom tooth extraction question

Common Questions and Answers about Wisdom tooth extraction question


Avatar f tn Wisdom tooth extraction is generally not associated with tooth shift.
Avatar n tn About 6 months ago I was told I would need a root canal because I have a lot of decay in one tooth. The tooth in question is the last tooth on the upper left hand side, number 16? It has recently started to really hurt and I will be going to a dentist soon. My question is since it's way in the back can I just have it extracted to avoid the cost, pain and future complications associated with a root canal? In general, I brush at least twice a day and floss everyday. Thank you.
Avatar f tn Following extraction of an upper molar and wisdom tooth, I have suffered from miserable coated tongue, a sensation of dryness, and loss some of sensation in my upper lip. Could this be the result of any nerve damage from the extractions?
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.

If you have any decayed tooth, this may have caused green mucus to form in the wisdom tooth socket.

Avatar n tn Kirsch On Nov 27 I e-mailed a question concerning a wisdom tooth extraction that has left numbness( now 8 days past surgery date) in my lower lip, teeth, and chin on the left side. I neglected to mention that my age is 60 yrs. 11 mos. How much difference should this make in the extraction decision considering also that there was no problem with the tooth at the time. Thank you.
Avatar f tn My cheek was prodded at and held open for an entire hour and a half while the students looked for guidance from the doctor while working on me, till he finally stepped in and removed the tooth. Apart from regular wisdom tooth extraction pain, I am now dealing with extreme pain from the hematoma site and I am very scared as to what the consequences of this might be. Is there any way that this could be dangerous? Will this still heal properly after all of the aggravation to it?
Avatar n tn I just had a wisdom tooth (on the bottom) extracted on Monday. I followed all of the dentists' instructions post-surgery, but I somehow still lost my blood clot today while I was at work. I had cottage cheese for lunch, as my dentist said that was safe, and when I checked the extraction site in the mirror afterwards I noticed that not only did it appear that the clot was gone, but there were some cottage cheese pieces sitting on the extraction site.
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 n tn I had a wisdom tooth removed Monday..the doctor gave me no meds for pain. it is now Friday and my ears are blocked,my mouth hurts,and I have a slight fever..is this normal?

Avatar f tn After scaring me half to death, of course I said no to the crown for now. My question here is can a dentist remove an impacted wisdom tooth after the back molar has had a crown? I feel as if this temp filling is not going to hold up for 6 to 8 weeks.
Avatar f tn Only in extreme cases will a dentist recommended a tooth extraction. The tooth is completely removed if the cavity is very bad and the tooth can't be saved. Root Canal When the tooth is severely damaged by the cavity, a root canal removes the pulp and nerve and seals the tooth. This completely prevents any further decay.
Avatar f tn To remove the wisdom tooth, your dentist will open up the gum tissue over the tooth and take out any bone that is covering the tooth. He will separate the tissue connecting the tooth to the bone and then remove the tooth. Sometimes the dentist will cut the tooth into smaller pieces to make it easier to remove.
Avatar f tn If my wisdom are actually the cause, can I expect the sensitivity to go away after the extraction? How long after? Thank you for any help!
Avatar m tn My dentist said one of my back tooth was a bit weak and that they will need to check it up every 6 months. Well it hurts every once in awhile, but I can't have it checked because I have camp. The inner tooth hurts. I did have my wisdom teeth taken out about 2 and a half weeks ago, could that be the problem? I don't remember MAYBE my tooth hurt even before the wisdom teeth extraction.
Avatar m tn It was the right upper wisdom tooth. In the same day after my wisdom tooth extraction, I developed nasal congestion in the right nostril. From that day till now, the nasal congestion has been present everyday and it alternates between nostrils from time to time. I've visited the ENT twice. The first time, the doctor did a nose scope and confirmed that my nose was congested. She then prescribed me Nasonex nasal spray to be used for 6 weeks (2 puffs in each nostril, once a day).
Avatar f tn Hi I'm 8+4 today. I'm having severe toothache from day b4 yesterday . It'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 ?
Avatar m tn I will write a somewhat longer reply than you received from Teak but the essential content of the reply will carry the same message that you have already received from Teak- extraction of a wisdom tooth carries no risk for HIV acquisition, either from use of uncleansed instruments or other modes of contamination. Dentists and their assistants are trained to routinely avoid cross contamination of patients with blood or other secretions.
Avatar m tn I had my wisdom tooth(2) removed 6 days ago. my lower left lip and a few teeth are still feeling numb currently. is this numbness going to be temporary or permanent?
