Wisdom tooth jaw ache

Common Questions and Answers about Wisdom tooth jaw ache


Avatar n tn Could this pain be because of left wisdom tooth? or is it from the trauma my jaw received during the extraction? Should I go back to the dentist for it? As I said the right side where the extraction took place is fine, no issues. But the left is terrible. Any suggestions?
Avatar f tn Hi there, An impacted wisdom tooth can give rise to pain or tenderness of gums, jaw ache, redness and swelling of gums around the tooth, swollen lymph nodes and difficulty opening the mouth. The symptoms you have been having could possibly be due to any bacterial or viral illness.Tonsillitis, flu; otitis media all can give rise to these symptoms. I will advise you to seek the opinion of a doctor and get evaluated. You may need an ENT examination. Do keep me posted. Best wishes and regards!
Avatar n tn About two weeks ago, my neck and jaw began to ache so I went to an oral surgeon where I was told i had developed perocoronitis by my wisdom tooth. The doctor put me on antibiotics and took my top two teeth out the very next morning. I had only a local and did not need stitches.He told me I would be feeling much better by the next day. He did not prescribe me any painkillers, but told me to take ibuprofen.
Avatar n tn I have a hard knot/lump on my lower right jaw bone behind my wisdom tooth which is still there. I noticed it yesterday and it makes it hard to close my mouth or eat on that side and it's painful. I just wanted to know if anyone might know what it could be. I have jaw pain from time to time which makes my wisdom tooth ache because I have TMJ, so my doctor told me last year. If anyone has any ideas let me know.
Avatar f tn I went to the dentist recently and dentist said that I had some decay on my wisdom teeth and that he wanted to pull them to stop infection and spreading he sent me to get an opg xray (I think that's what it'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...
Avatar n tn went back to dentist and had a significant amount of food particles removed from the bottom hole where my tooth was. pain along my jaw subsided, so now i'm eating yogurt, pudding, liquified foods to prevent pain from returning. but now i have an intense ear ache and i don't know if thats normal. help!
Avatar m tn ) the dentist has examined my jaw many a time with xrays to boot, still cant find anything wrong with it except perhaps an imapcted wisdom tooth. The trouble with pain is, people dont understand what you're going through and generally think that you're over reacting. But when they see a 19 year old male who was once a fit healthy person crying because of a 'headache', they just think i'm crazy and depressed. What a spiral.
Avatar n tn Hello...I am a 33 yr. old healthy female. On Tuesday, I had my upper left wisdom tooth removed due to a cavity/decay. This morning, I woke up around 6 a.m. with mild ear pain. As the day progessed, the ear pain became a little worse. I called my dentist and he had me come in to see if I had the beginning of a "dry socket." The dentist said that he could see the blod clot in the socket, but it was not formed as well as it probably should be formed.
Avatar f tn Surgeon is also making me a grinding thing to wear at night in case its that and not the wisdom tooth, I know they taking all precautions but I feel they don't know what it is. Its like guessing games really. The pain comes from the wisdom area, either sharp going to ear or dull ache. My tooth is in upright position slight bent towards back, the top part but not a lot. Its right next to my molar with a very slight gap between. My wish would be just to get the thing out and done with.
Avatar f tn need to go back to the dentist ... he will be able to make sure all the tooth is out... and that your not having some kind of TMJ problem... or make sure that there is no infection.... there is alot of antibiotics that can be taken with birthcontrol and have no effect on the birth control....
Avatar m tn How long will u have pain aftger a wisdom tooth extraction? Will it be in ur wbhole jaw? I had one removed lower left 6 days ago an still have a lot of pain. No swelling in my jaw or pain elsewhere. Just my jaw where tooth was at. Not stiff. So i doubt infection possible. Jsut wondering how long to expect pain...
Avatar n tn For a couple of months now, I have been experiencing pain/pressure on the right side of my face-sinus, ear, and back of my jaw-that would come and go. I also had a wisdom tooth that had recently cut through on that side so I figured that was the cause. I went to a dentist to see if she thought anything was wrong with my wisdom tooth, but she said that it was pericoronitis causing my pain. She gave me a referral to an oral surgeon anyways since it was so far back that it was difficult to clean.
Avatar f tn right at the back on my lower left jaw i have a white spot i have been told its not cancer its scar tissue from wisdom tooth removal- however this was there before i had the tooth removed - my glands under my jaw in my neck are swollen & sore thy have been like this for the past year & half!
Avatar n tn The pain starts off as a dull ache in my bottom jar (where the tooth was extracted) and it gradually builds up so its near constant, but its so difficult to describe, but it does feel similar to the pain I experienced before the extraction. How can you have tooth ache when theres no tooth there? I am beginning to think the problem is more sinister and first thought.
Avatar f tn I had returned to the dentist 5 times to be repacked and then was told that I could get the Red Cross Tooth Ache Kit and pack it myself. The Clove Oil burned my mouth so badly that I stopped using it due to the blisters it was causing around my mouth. My lower jaw is hurting VERY BADLY on both sides as well. Is this normal? I feel like my dentist is blowing me off.
Avatar n tn It sounds like a typical pericorinitis which is an infection of that flap of tissue covering the wisdom tooth. The tooth needs to be extracted.You can rinse with very warm salt water, get an antibiotic but these are just bandaids and you will eventually have to get the extraction or extractions.
1169120 tn?1263251040 im 19 years old. One of my wisdom teeth have already come in. My wisdom tooth on my left bottom side is starting to come out and im having pains on that side (left/bottom side), i;ve been using oral gel and taking advil for the pain. it also hurts at times when i swallow.
Avatar n tn He put me on beta blockers first and I had pretty dreadful side-effects so I went off them and have been on neomercazole for about 3 weeks now (he told me the highest dose of 20mg daily. The last 5 days I've developed jaw pain and what I thought was tooth ache. Initially my teeth became really sensitive to hot and cold and I hadnt done anything different... Thought I damaged a tooth so went to my dentist as I thought my wisdom teeth were also maybe the cause of the pain.
Avatar f tn I had my two bottom wisdom teeth removed by general surgery 4 days ago. They were coming in sideways and impacted. The crown of both teeth were under the tooth in front. Before removal I had many small infections on both sides over a few months. There wasn't a lot of bleeding after the surgery and I seemed to recover pretty fast at first.  I have felt sick in my stomach almost constantly since returning home from the hospital and I have a fever (unsure of temperature) and chills.
Avatar n tn It sounds to me like an absessed wisdom tooth. You don't want to leave that untreated as wisdom teeth are connected to your jaw bone and the infection can be extremely life threatning without treatment. Believe me, I'm there now. If all else fails, go to the ER and get put on antibiotics. The very least you can do is take care of the infection. Also, Ibuprofen/Advil is the best for toothaches.
Avatar n tn Im also having a similar episode. I have a wisdom tooth coming in on the left side of my mouth on my lower jaw.
Avatar f tn Hiya I had a wisdom tooth pulled under general anaesthetic (not asleep but I was super numb and didn't feel a thing) when I was 18 weeks with my first child. She is now 4yo.
Avatar f tn A few days after my surgery, my lower left jaw started to ache. Both the wisdom tooth and last molar had been removed years prior. The pain felt centered in my gums in the first and second molar although they were not swollen or red. The pain continued to increase as each day went by. I finally saw both my OS and regular dentist. Neither seem too concerned. An xray showed no problems with those teeth. By now the pain was all over the left side of my lower jaw and into my ear.
Avatar n tn Syetemic administration of antibiotics is helpful for managing post-op infection of wisdom tooth removal. Seeing your dentist is advised.
Avatar n tn I've had this pain now for 16 years. I originally thought it was a tooth ache at the back of my lower tooth (wisdom). I've gone to serveral doctors but no one can really tell me what I have. I take Aleve and this helps take the pain away, but it comes right back. I basically have the pain everyday. The only time I can remember not have any pain whatsoever was when I was pregnant both times. So my pain starts in my inner ear and goes down to my jaw.
Avatar f tn It is ear full, itch, ache mostly directly in front and at the angle of the jaw. I have ache or throb or burning in my upper molar area and also my lower molar area and the area where my wisdom teeth used to be. Then, the most concerning to me is the left sided tongue tingle/burn, occasionally itch sensation. They have me on neurontin (gabapentin) but if it helps, it's not enough. I take 200 mg 3x a day, and they say I can increase...
Avatar n tn At 43 years old had the pleasure of having impacted wisdom tooth extracted 6 days ago. No problem or pain the first few days. Began experiencing a "jaw bone" ache on day three that has caused many sleepless nights and extra days/hours off work. I took prescribed pain pills, and tylenol to relieve pain to no avail. Thought it was just me being wimpy.
660300 tn?1224793961 Hello everyone. I had a tooth and wisdom tooth removed 4 days ago and my nerve was in the middle of the root of my wisdom tooth. Needless to say the nerve was stretched so i have numbness in my chin and lip on the left side along with my gum. The weird thing is the left corner of my mouth is not numb. The surgeon stated on time would tell. I was already taking B-12 so was happy to read that it might help. i do have the itching creep crawly, burning sensation.
