Wisdom tooth swelling

Common Questions and Answers about Wisdom tooth swelling


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.
Avatar f tn On the bottom left of my mouth behind the last tooth the gums hurt really bad, even if I eat just a banana. Could it be my wisdom tooth? How do I tell? Or do I just have to wait it out?
Avatar f tn removed again 6 months ago. At the time the dentist thought the tooth beside where the wisdom tooth was extracted was the problem until I made him xray the wisdom tooth area because I could feel the chip next to the other tooth & the gum kept swelling up. That same area he cut open to remove the tooth chip healed nicely until it swelled up again 2 months ago to form a very tiny insignificant abscess on the gum which I popped & thought nothing more of until now.
Avatar f tn My wisdom tooth is coming in and my gum around it is swollen and it hurts.. Anything I can do to bring the swelling down and take the pain away?
6323602 tn?1380323698 Broke a wisdom tooth 6 months ago and now I am having problems with my jaw, face, sinuses, and throat swelling, hard time swallowing, without any pain whatsoever and no abssess, know for fact went to ENT plus dentist and had xrays done. I have severe periodontal disease on top of the broken tooth, no pains at all, just a lot of face and throat swelling. Can this still be causing all the swelling even without abbssess and pains?
Avatar f tn i have a wisdom tooth breaking through but have just a swollen gland on the opposite side of my mouth. Could the wisdom tooth still be causing the swelling if the side the tooth is in is nit affected?
Avatar f tn Upper wisdom tooth removal is totally different from that of lower wisdom tooth.Extraction of upper wisdom tooth generally takes no more than 10 miniutes. Post-op pain and complications are generally minimal. Patients generally take one or two doses of OTC pain killer. Antibiotics is rarely needed. Swelling is a rare occurence.Your dentist was absolutely right.
Avatar m tn Thanks doctor. i am 26 now, my wisdom tooth teethes almost completely. is it safe to remove it. i am scared of jaw fracture :-). beside this wisdom tooth, there are 2 other ones but they are ok, not hurts me at all.
Avatar m tn When there is no room, or very little room in the jaw, top or bottom, the wisdom teeth have no room to grow through and can cause a lot of pain and swelling. If you feel this could be a wisdom tooth trying to come through, you will need to see your dentist. The other possibility is swollen glands or a blocked salivary gland which may be a viral or a bacterial infection, and if this is the case you will need to see your doctor. Let me know how you get on.
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 n tn I have an impacted wisdom tooth. Its been about a week of horrible pain. My neck and face hurt. I think it might be infected. it is after hours to contact a dentist. should i go to ER for help? what will they do?
Avatar f tn hope you can help... 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 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 But after extraction of right bottom wisdom and tooth in front of it. The usual swelling of right cheek, moved to under my chin to back of jaw. It is giving me almost more pain than if teeth were still there...
Avatar f tn Then once you get a cavity in one wisdom if you have to pull one you have to pull the top and bottom. My wisdom tooth roots were rapped all over the place and it was hard to get it out. The other side was easy. So, It is up to you to do it now or later.
Avatar f tn I had a wisdom tooth grow in completely in one quadrant on my mouth. I had had a tooth out on that side and the wisdom tooth filled in the space. It's possible that your tooth may grow in, but in some cases they are impacted and have to be taken out by an oral surgeon. You really need to get to a dentist or oral surgeon ASAP.

Avatar n tn Well I had my wisdom tooth pulled on Monday.It had to be the worst experience.After 2 1/2 hrs of grinding,pulling,pushing and cutting,the doctor gave up and had to send me to someone else.My appt was at 9:00 and I left at 12:30.The next dentist couldn't get me in until 3:00.By the time I got to that appt all the numbing shots wore off and they had to numb me all over again.That dentist took another 1 1/2 hours to get it out.
Avatar n tn I had my lower wisdom tooth pulled out about 3 months ago. I thought healing was going smoothly until the week after, my lymph nodes (neck) on the side where my tooth was pulled became extremely swollen. I freaked out because this never happened to me when I had my other wisdom teeth pulled out. Most of the swelling went down in about 4 days. The dentist also prescribed me antibiotics for it, which I finished in a week.
Avatar f tn I have an impacted wisdom tooth on my lower right side of my mouth. I recently have been sick with a sore throat, had a slight gum infection and been told that my tooth is impacted and needs to come out soon. My ear on the right has been closed and hurts sometimes. When I eat my jaw hurts sometimes as well and my right check is slightly swollen. I recently noticed swelling in my sternocleidomastoid muscle and I am not sure if that is linked to my wisdom tooth.
Avatar n tn I had 2 wisdom teeth extracted on nov 20th. Number 1 was taken to save the tooth next to it(recommended by my dentist-asap) The other one was recommended by the oral surgeon (to whom I was referred) Although there was no immediate problem, the doctor thought one might happen later - sometime.
Avatar n tn On my left upper side, it was excrutiatingly painful, the gum around the tooth was swelling, there was pus/blood, and excess saliva. Never having experienced this before and not having a family dentist I went to the ER where they said, not a Dentist but a regular MD, the tooth was absessed. I was started on Clindamycin and told to take Advil for the pain. This was Sunday, today is Wednesday and I have been taking the anti-biotics regularly every six hours.
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 f tn My lower left wisdom tooth is infected. I am scheduled to get it extracted in a week from tomorrow. I first went to the dentist three weeks ago and he prescribed me amoxicillin, which I took and the pain and swelling went away. I then went to the oral surgeon a week later for a consultation. He said I had bone loss near the wisdom tooth from the infection, which scared me. He told me to wait to take another dose of amoxicillin until the day before the extraction.
Avatar f tn so i got my wisdom tooth out 5 days ago. i still have a fever, the pain hurts like crazy. i have this bad odor in my mouth and it stinks. is there something wrong?
