Wisdom tooth nerve pain

Common Questions and Answers about Wisdom tooth nerve pain


Avatar n tn I have been experiencing minor pain on my left bottom wisdom tooth. Previously my dentinst performed a root canal on this tooth to save it. I only have this tooth and a crowned molar on this side. I went to the dentist for my 6 month cleaning and expressed my concern. He X-rayed this side and said there wasn't anything visable or no infection(7/5). While cleaning my teeth that wisdom tooth was experiencing pain that brought tears to my eyes. The dentist prescribed Tylenol 3.

Avatar f tn Went to wisdom tooth dentist, he said I should not remove tooth b/c the nerve is too close and I could do damage. Of course if I'm in pain, then they will remove it. The restorative dentist then went ahead with the crown prep, but warned me several times that they wouldn't be able to take out the wisdom tooth. They did take a panoramic xray and I did see the nerve, extremely close to the wisdom tooth. It also appeared to be pushing the molar.
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?
Avatar m tn Crowding and impacted wisdom tooth are not generally the culprit of pain, unless infection is involved.
Avatar m tn i have recently had a wisdom tooth extraction and i am experiencing numbness in the right half of my bottom lip and chin as well pain in my teeth on that side. the oral surgeon wants me to wait a month to monitor the progress. the wisdom tooth was impacted and i have recently found out that increases the chances of numbness. needless to say i am worried about the situation especially knowing that it could possibly permanent. Is surgery to repair the nerve an option? what should i do?
Avatar n tn Outpt surgery under general anesthesia. The wisdom tooth was horizontal next to a cyst---the crown of the wisdom tooth was pushing against the tooth next to it. Not in to much pain, I'm taking clindamycin & oxycodone. Since the extraction, I have only taken 4 pain pills. Of course my face is still swollen, which is to be expected, but my tongue on the left side is still numb. My tongue still feels like is did the day of surgery. Which is scary--how long should I expect this?
Avatar f tn 39 yrs old, F. lower left wisdom tooth, mesial impacted, lower right wisdom tooth, horizontal impacted. Upper left wisdom tooth-missing. Presented to my dentist on in Dec 2008 for filling on upper #15 and #12. No pain symptoms, just getting filling due to my dental exam/xray showing the need. At time of fillings, tooth #14 had old deep filling. After filling 15 and 12, extreme pain, heat/cold sensitivity for week. Advil (1000mg) would relieve pain for a couple of hours.
Avatar m tn he suggest if i extract the tooth beside the wisdom tooth (which is like only half expose from the gum), that might give the wisdom tooth space to grow, thus relieving the pain...so i did... After a week or so, the wound is ok and the gum starts to grow back... just when it seems like everything is going fine....i felt pain again... the pain was not from the wound area..it seems to come from the 2-3 teeths beside the extracted tooth... the pain was like inside the gum...
Avatar m tn Aspirin or alka seltzer is really good for tooth pain, and you can hold the liquid seltzer on the side of your mouth where it hurts for a few seconds before swallowing. And thru this whole thing, drink extra water, water helps break up and drain any infection in the body.
Avatar n tn You know I may also be TMJ, that's what I have,the worst case. I get pain in my jaw, headaches, sometimes throat pain, and ear pain, and back pain, you'll know if you have it by pressure on your side jaw(both sides) Just my oppinion.
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....
Avatar f tn I don't know if this will help you, but I've had somewhat similar problems: Since March 2010 I have been having the trigeminal pain, which varied from tingles, sharp sudden pain, burning sensations along the trigeminal nerve in the cheek, temple, and around the right side of my mouth. These sensations lasted only a few seconds, occurring only on the right side.
Avatar m tn I just got home and uploaded the xray.In this Xray of my mouth you can see the mass I am talking about in the upper right hand corner right next to the wisdom tooth. It's not even causing me pain, should I still have it done? So scared lol. The doctor told me it's a fifth wisdom tooth. http://i.imgur.com/ChrJJBK.
Avatar f tn Many years ago I had a root canal on this tooth. Presently there is a large cavity in this tooth, however no pain but food gets trapped it often. If it is removed , is it necessary to replace it? What are my options?
Avatar n tn I had a root canal done on my wisdom tooth on my lower left jaw. That wisdom tooth was growing towards the tooth next to it and couldn't surface, so I had to have some dentist or surgeon try to pull it up before i could get braces. They were able to pull it up, but i guess it was too much trauma and caused some nerve damage. So i ended up having to get a root canal on it.
Avatar f tn Tooth sensitivity usually occurs when the softer part of your tooth called 'dentine' is exposed due to the erosion of the enamel. I'm sure your dentist must've looked into that part but to be on the safer side, try using a toothpaste that fights tooth sensitivity and lets hope the issue is resolved without extraction.
Avatar f tn Common cold, sinusitis, ear infection, sensory nerve compression, peripheral neuropathy as in diabetes, inflamed wisdom tooth, impacted wisdom tooth etc can all cause facial numbness and pain. Hemi-facial numbness is also seen in Bell’s palsy, trigeminal neuralgia where a spasm may cause numbness, or due to acoustic neuroma which is a benign tumor of the eighth cranial nerve. I think you should discuss these possibilities with your doctor.
Avatar n tn it was vertically impacted. The surgeon removed the tooth and told me my nerve under the tooth was in tact, but he felt I would experience temporary loss of sensation resulting from the surgery. I am feeling numbness and discomfort (not pain) in my front lower jaw and my chin and lower lip from midline to my outer right lip area. It just seems strange to me that I'm feeling discomfort in this area more so than the actual area where the impacted tooth was removed... is this normal????
Avatar f tn I had three wisdom teeth removed a couple weeks later. The wisdom tooth that was causing pain and had been stirred up then developed a dry socket. The dry socket lasted around 5 weeks, the whole time was incredibly painful. I didn't realise it had healed because I was still in very bad pain, so went back to a dentist.
