Avatar f tn Hello, It's been 8 days since I had wisdom teeth surgery to remove two of my right wisdom teeth. Yesterday, I had the stitches removed and the doctor said that everything looked great. While checking my teeth, I noticed a small hole in the lower part where my wisdom tooth was. I'm not sure if the same goes for the upper part as it's hard to see. Is this normal or should I go get it stitched? How long until my gums go back to normal?
Avatar f tn On my lower left jaw I see a hole in my gum where my wisdom tooth should be. It looks like there is black liquid in the hole. I'm extremely tired all the time. My left eye wants to stay shut. I'm having trouble walking. I can't lay on my back without having breathing problems. I'm having a high heart beat. And I'm just starting to droll a little bit. I can't eat solid food without nausea and throwing up. I have a mental fog. My eyesight in my left eye is getting worse.
Avatar m tn I have a wisdom tooth that is completely under the gum. It feels like it has either broken or maybe turned sideways. It has been bleeding a tiny bit but not a lot, can this lead to an infection......serious illness?
Avatar n tn Just under four years ago, I discovered that I had a wisdom tooth coming out (lower right side) it hurt a bit and did not emerge completely, unfortunately I was heading to Japan and didn't really have time to get it sorted out back home I thought I could get it done in Japan.
Avatar m tn I just had my back tooth removed (not my wisdom tooth) and the night after I stupidly ate popcorn not thinkin also..
Avatar f tn A recent dental checkup revealed a hole in my upper left wisdom tooth. I am waiting for extraction. I am having lots of symptoms which my GP diagnosed as TMJ but which are probably down to this tooth. I have now developed a very sensitive scalp (on both sides of my head) and wondered if the tooth could be causing that too?
Avatar n tn I had one lower Wisdom Tooth removed over a week ago. Just wanted to know when the pain will stop, as I am on continual pain killers ever since and experiencing sharp pain. Thanks, This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/295821'>Pain after wisdom teeth extraction</a>.
Avatar n tn I had my lower left side wisdom tooth removed about a week and five days ago and I am slowly experiencing more and more pain in my upper jaw area. I am having diffculties opening my mouth because of the pain and soreness. What I need to know is this normal to have pain in the jaw area after a wisdom tooth extraction? And if so, how long should I expect to experience this pain?
Avatar f tn okay my wisdom tooth is killing me it has a hole in it and very painful will they pull it...it feel like its on a nerve....
9671341 tn?1443128711 This infection may not have necessarily arisen as a result of the teeth extraction process. If you have any decayed tooth, this may have caused green mucus to form in the wisdom tooth socket.

Avatar f tn I've got a cavity on my wisdom tooth, and I'm starting to feel sensitivity and even slight pain on it. at the moment ive got no health insurance, but will soon, and will also be getting all my wisdom teeth removed when i get insurance. whats strange is that i woke up this morning and felt slight pain in both of my jaws, near the back. one side i can clearly see a cavity, the other side i cant find one for the life of me (using mirrors/flashlights).
Avatar f tn I am going to have a wisdom tooth extraction tomorrow. I am already 13 weeks pregnant, but I am still afraid , I would like to know if anybody else had this procedure before? The pain is horrible, so I have to take it out .
Avatar m tn I meant to say she has some gum pain and hasn't seen a dentist in many years.
Avatar f tn Idk if it has anything to do with it but really hard to swallow any pill. Went to get wisdom tooth pulled the other day but oral surgeon either didnt see or notice it either nor did he acknowledge whiteiss ulsor looking lump on inside of bottom jaw.
Avatar n tn I extracted my wisdom tooth nearly 8 weeks ago. I was bearing with the healing process and was taking all the precautions I was told by the Dentist. But now for the past 1 week I am getting severe pain which travels to my ear. My cavity has healed. Visited my dentist and the xray shows a big whole. According to my dentist it is a dry socket. Is it possible to have dry socket even if the wound has healed. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/421645'>Dry socket....
4518471 tn?1355798857 Hi there, It is normal to experience some pain after wisdom tooth removal. The pain usually lessens with time. Persistent pain could be due to several other reasons like dry socket, non healing wound. Dry socket is alveolar osteitis when the blood clot at the site of the tooth extraction has been dislodged or has dissolved before the wound has healed. There is severe pain since the underlying bone and nerves are exposed. It is best to contact your dentist and get a dental check up done.
Avatar f tn I had a lower wisdom tooth extracted on 4/16/08. I developed Dry Socket even though I followed all the surgeons instructions. I went back in a week later and he packed the hole. I was told this would elevate some of the pain. It only made it worse. About a week later two large pieces of bone started to erupt around my gums close to the jaw. I went back in to have it looked at again. He had his assistant pack the hole again and sent me on my way.
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 m tn I had a coronectomy on my bottom left wisdom tooth 9 days ago. Surgeon said it was far too risky to remove the entire tooth. I'm 37 and the risk outweighed the benefits. He put me on Penicillin, and I've taken all of it as prescribed. However, I still am having pain and throbbing in the gum where the small hole is.
Avatar n tn After a wisdom tooth extraction, what should you do if you've accidentally gotten a bit of food stuck in the hole? I've attempted to rinse with warm salt water, but it doesn't seem to help. If it's any help to know, I believe it's a bit of banana muffin. I'm five days out from the surgery, too. Also, is there any real danger in catching food other there? Will it cause dry socket or an infection? Thanks so much. I really appreciate it.
Avatar n tn 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. My questions are: 1. Is it normal for the bone to be exposed after the surgery? 2.
Avatar n tn i got my wisdom teeth pulled about two months ago but where my lower left one was removed there is a sharp portrution like a piece of tooth was left in the hole and there is some pain to is this something i should be concerned with.
Avatar f tn The reason for the antibiotics is because your dentist wants to pull the tooth! Wisdom teeth are HUGE and leave a big hole behind...(Mine even needed stitches..) An open hole in your gum is a direct path to your blood stream, and can even invite an infection into your heart...wisdom teeth normally get removed when they are threatening to become "impacted"...If your tooth isn't causing any problems, you may consider just getting the cavity filled... Are you currently on treatment?
Avatar f tn I have extracted my bottom wisdom tooth (the last one) 12 days ago, and now, i could clearly see a dark hole on the site (after the stitches were removed). It's slightly painful. Is this normal? When will it recover? I also find difficulties in opening my jaw to the maximum. Plus some bad breath (which troubles me alot). Is this a normal symptom after wisdom tooth extraction? I brush my teeth twice a day, and frequently gargle with salt water and listerine.
Avatar n tn I got my wisdom teeth pulled out a week ago the upper part are fine and my lower right tooth site is healing fine. but my lower left has been pretty weird. the hole is quite big and when i open my mouth i could see white in the back when light is shined on it. i've tried to irrigate it using the syringe but it will not come out. slightly hurts but it just doesn't feel right.
