Wisdom tooth lump

Common Questions and Answers about Wisdom tooth lump


Avatar n tn At the early stages of the sore throat i had no pain in my wisdom tooth, however on day 2-3 my lower right wisdom tooth became very painful and kind of inflamed. At this time I also had a pain under my jawline ( the side of the painful wisdom tooth only) - is this the lymph node? If the sore throat is down to an infected wisdom tooth - would it be contagious, say if I kissed my girlfriend??? She has no symptoms of a sore throat so i'm guessing no???? Thanks for any replies.
Avatar n tn Recently I visited my dentist because I was experiencing extreme pain in my mouth. They told me my upper left wisdom tooth was infected and prescribed me a prescription for an antibiotic and ibuprofen to help with the discomfort, as well as referring me to an oral surgeon. I have an appointment in three days with the oral surgeon for an exam (Its been two weeks already) but I have the feeling my tooth is still infected even after taking the antibiotic.
Avatar n tn I took the inflammation medicine and the antibiotic and the pain is increasing and the lump is getting bigger. I must mention also that the site where the wisdom tooth was located doesn't hurt hardly at all. I am a smoker of 9yrs. and I don't know if that has anything to do with all of this. I didn't smoke for 48 hours after extraction though. Any suggestions or advice would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance.
Avatar n tn After looking at the area in a mirror I noticed that there was swelling of the inside of the cheek along the tooth line and a white fleshy lump hanging off the back of the jaw over the lower wisdom tooth. Every time I chew I have to be careful in order to prevent biting down on the skin. It is not very large and it is painful.
Avatar f tn I have got a lump on my left wisdom tooth , I am 20 years old and still have my wisdom teeth. I can feel that they are starting to come out but my left one has a solid lump/bump on it that I am not sure what it is .Is this something serious or pericoronitis? Im generally stressed about my health and was wondering if this should be something to worry about. Any advice would be appreciated! It looks like a piece of gum and is the same colour that my gums are.
Avatar f tn This past month I have had this swollen lump on my lower right gums where my wisdom tooth should be. (The tooth hasn't broken through) The swelling has gotten to the point to where it is causing me to not be able to put my teeth together without putting pressure on the swollen gums and causes pain. Is there something wrong? Or is this normal for wisdom teeth trying to come in?
Avatar m tn Hi I went to see a dentist because I found a tiny lump on jaw line which can sorta move and be painful if I press it,he said because I have a wisdom tooth coming its a lymph node.its not growin and its been about 4 months but I'm starting to be be abit sceptical of his diagnosis any advise?
Avatar m tn Is it possible that you have an infection starting in a tooth on that side? Possibly a wisdom tooth? Or, an ear or sinus infection? If it's a tooth, you need to see your dentist. If not, you should probably get to see you PCP. A lymph node should not be swollen. Hope this helps.
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 Hi, I am 29 years old and 72 hours ago had my lower right wisdom tooth removed. I went in because I was in a lot of pain and I could have sworn I had already had all wisdom teeth removed in 2004. The dentist took an Xray and immediately removed the tooth. He said my root was abnormally long and the roots were fused together. I started my antibiotics (he said I didn't yet have an infection) and Vicodin immediately.
Avatar n tn Most people get them taken out as soon as they start coming in. I had mine taken out as they were coming in. Chances are that lump is from the wisdom tooth and if not treated can cause alot of problems and wisdom oh yeah they will cause serious sinus probelms.
Avatar f tn Hi, I had my right wisdom tooth fallen gradually due to decay some 10 years back. Ever since there was this gap left and it didn't give me any difficulty. Now two month back I noticed a lump inside the socket. I consulted the dentist and she said it was infection and put me on antibiotics. But there was no improvement and unfortunately I couldn't follow up also. One week ago I consulted her again and she said there are fragments of tooth left and they need to be removed.
Avatar f tn I started having trouble with my wisdom tooth 4 years before. I had a small lump then and the doctor prescribed antibiotics. The pain vanished but I think the problem is still there. I recently could feel the sharp edge of my upper wisdom tooth on my fingers, when I tried to touch the tooth through the side of my mouth. I can't see it myself. I have a slight pain when I touch the tooth. I think Iam having an infection. I have two small babies. I am breastfeeding my 6-month-old.
Avatar m tn im 16 years of age and i have a wisdom tooth on my right side of my mouth, i have a lump in my throat which is a swollen lymph gland and its on the same side as my wisdom tooth, i also keep getting jaw ache and its causing me to have a really sore throat bad enough that i cant be bothered eating because it hurts so much, what should i do?
1418572 tn?1285961261 I have an impacted wisdom tooth. The tooth does not hurt at all. It use to but the pain all of a sudden just stopped about a year ago. Also the tooth is rotting away. It is not swollen and I am not in pain. I have been feel sick and have a lymph in my neck and one deep in the collar that I THINK is swollen. Also my tonsils are red. (both of them.) I am not throwing up or anything I just feel very bad. Every time i eat the tooth will get food stuck inside.
Avatar n tn I just had all 4 of my wisdom teeth out a week ago and im experiencing a few problems which i dont know if they are normal or not. First, I have a painful, hard lump on my jaw. Second, i have an opening in my gums in one area where my tooth was removed and it opens like a deep cut. Third, my teeth don't sit like they used to which is really uncomfortable and one tooth hurts when i eat because it feels like it doesnt fit properly with the tooth above it.
Avatar m tn Hi im 17 and to start of im a hypochondriac big time so this just may be me xD So all my wisdom teeth have pretty much come in fine the dentist has never told me they were coming in wrong...But as of Saturday a well lump or bump in my gum near my wisdom tooth and second molar has came up!
Avatar m tn i still have 2 upper wisdom teeth that hasnt been removed, however, behind my right upper wisdom tooth there seems to be a bony long lump within my gums, it seems to attached to my skull, and i dont have any idea what it was, my other side does not have the same knot/lump
Avatar m tn I am 20 yrs old.. I can feel a small lump below my left jaw close to my neck [since the last 3/4 months]. It is not painfull and I think it is immovable.. I can feel a smaller one in right to.. but it is too smaller when compared to the left one.. I used to have frequent head aches on my left side.. Now I have a slight pain all over the left side of my head.. and can feel a slight swelling.. Few months ago i had a pain on the lower right abdomen. Even now i can feel the pain when i sneeze.
Avatar n tn Your description appears to be related to infection. Seeing an oral surgeon to investigate the source of infection is advised.
1082629 tn?1256235686 In May/June of this past year, I developed a lump on my jaw bone. Thinking that it was a problem with a tooth (maybe an impacted wisdom tooth?) I went to the dentist. At this point the lump was maybe not quite the size of a pea. I went to the dentist and they had no same-day appointments, and that if I was worried about the lump that I should go to the ER.
Avatar n tn I seem to have a sort of lump growing behinde my left wisdom tooth, At first it didnt hurt but was just a bit annoying, but now (a day and a half later) its made my jaw stiff and moving my tougne is kinda difficult. My mother thinks its just a blister but im not too sure.
1834264 tn?1318188292 I made an emergency appt at a local dentist and it was about 2-3 weeks ago that they removed my upper (impacted) wisdom tooth along with the tooth in front because it had pushed so hard that it fractured the tooth and caused decay. I know--ick. The procedure would have been done much sooner had someone been willing to work with me monetary wise. Anyhow, the extraction took about 10 mins tops. I was given 4 shots of novocaine and then sutured afterward.
Avatar m tn I have a little lump on my upper left gum behind my molar but further back than I imagine my wisdom tooth would be. It is painless and I am unable to move it with my tongue but if if push it with my finger it moves slightly with a little click. I have made an appointment to see the dentist but was worried so thought I'd ask your advise. You can not see the lump just feel it.
