Wisdom tooth under gum

Common Questions and Answers about Wisdom tooth under gum


Avatar n tn One of the crowns has been placed on the wisdom teeth, that has been inclined. Even before I had the bridge done,the gum around the tooth has been inflammed. Ever since the crown came in, the inflammation has become stronger. Actually, the gum never fit well with the crown. Two days ago, I woke up with the pain and the tooth is sensitive to touch. Before the crown, I had x-rays done and the roots have been perfectly healthy. The gum is bleeding and an unpleasant odour is spreading.
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 Hi shar03! I am in no way a "certified" dental expert, however, when someone (myself included) spends countless hours on the internet trying to find the source of a "smell problem", you tend to learn a thing or two..... Anyway, it sounds to me that you MAY have what's called "impacted wisdom teeth." It's where your wisdom tooth/teeth are stuck between open and close in your gum.
Avatar n tn My top right side at the back of my teeth is what seems to be bleeding, and giving out pus. There is no pain. A little uncomfortable feeling under my right jaw line. I have 24 teeth total. There is no wisdom tooth showing or appearing to be coming in. I am almost 22 years old. I have never had a wisdom tooth come in. I'm worried what it may be because i don't see a tooth, i'm thinking the worst that there's a rotten tooth inside my gum. Please someone help.
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 f tn I've been on antibiotics 3 X, every time I'm done, infection comes back, even after tooth extraction. Please see details below, I need your opinion. Thank You... Started with Left sore throat, then Gum Pain & hard white painful bump near #17 wisdom tooth. Got severe, hard to swallow, chew, painful. My reg. Dentist Rx'd Amoxicillin - took 6 days to start working. After swelling went down,did x-ray, he could not find any problem -tooth not abcessed.
Avatar n tn To start off: I DO NOT HAVE ANY WISDOM TEETH. I had them removed when I was 17. I had oral surgery where they cut the wisdom teeth out before they ever broke the surface. So, please don't tell me this is my wisdom teeth coming in because it is not. That being said, I need help. My gum on the back left side of my mouth is growing over my tooth, and it hurts a lot. I brush back there twice daily and floss under the sore gum, but it still hurts.
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 n tn i went to the dentist today and he cut it open and drained it. it was an absess that is way under the gum. thanks for the advice!
Avatar m tn I felt okay after some time but when my wisdom tooth started growing, the gum was dark red(the gum above the wisdom tooth) and i noticed somekind of boil in the place of extraction,extra bump(swollen lymph) in between my right cheek and jaw, almost where the tooth was extracted and then i noticed other two growing under my chin(one sub-mandibular and the other one, on the upper right side of my throat). I went to many dentists and they said there must have been a tooth broken in the gum.
Avatar n tn I have a place on my gums, above my back most molar, in front of my wisdom tooh. I apparently had my wisdom teeth out almost 10 years ago and now it feels like i have one growing back. And where the place on my gums is, a hard piece, i assume a tooth, is erupting through. Is this possible? what is it?
Avatar n tn It resides inside and on the side of the gum and protrudes some so it is detectable with the tongue. The tooth, below which the lump is, has a silver filling but has been slowly falling apart, although there is still enough left to securely hold the filling in place. The lump is in the lower third to middle portion of the lower gum, and the mouth floor is not much lower.
Avatar f tn Hi there I'm 46 year old w/f and nobody can figure out my problem. On my right side under my wisdom tooth in neck fell's like it's so dry and like someone is sucking all the moisture out of that one spot. Back in July I had this wisdom tooth out and I heard something click in my neck told the o. suregon said nothing then he treating me for dry socket but it keep's getting worse every day. It feel's like I just want to put a screw driver in there and pull it out.
Avatar f tn I am 43, have impacted wisdom at bottom left, been warned about the numbness thing between lip and law already by oral surgeon. Tooth caught between nerve etc under gum. Its causing pain, but the hospital want me to try other options first in case its not the tooth he said, he told me to return to dentist in case its a leaky filling that could be causing the pain. Then to get it re filled first. I had Xray taken of wisdom, but its 8wk for the 3D Xray, I am in UK on nhs side.

Avatar f tn The molar that touches my wisdom tooth has its gum section on the front of the tooth detatched. It doesnt look like its receeding and it doesnt have any odd discoloration, just looks normal but detatched. My sister says that she had something like her gums detatching just to make room for adjustments on the new tooth. Is my gum just detatched to help me make my wisdom teeth to move better? Is it going to reattach later on?
Avatar m tn Thank Your for your input. I don't know where to begin. You say you had pain in your mouth prior to the surgery and worst after surgery, right? Well, I am not having any pain in my jaw, gum or wisdom tooth right now. It's too bad you are having too much pain and taking painkillers and antibiotics for it. When I open my jaw wide I hear little bone noises from my jaw.
Avatar n tn My wisdom tooth has been coming out and recently the gum started to swell up and now it's over the only piece that had come out. It's a bump and has red dots. It started 3 days ago. and now my head hurts and my ear that is on the same side of my swollen gum hurts as well. is this normal for wisdom teeth? if not what could it be?
Avatar f tn I did call my dentist however his currently not in til next week, he told me to use mouth wash and take antibiotics which thankful i am already on as i have a vaginal infection. The gum is fully covering the back wisdom tooth its been like this for years neevr have gaven me this much trouble.
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 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?
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 it was growing on the outer edge on my gum close to my cheek and over lapping my very back tooth. I have had periods where the gum around the tooth swells and i get a lot of pain, the day i went for the extraction it was getting ready to swell again.
Avatar m tn This would lead to infection because part of my lower wisdom teeth is covered by gum and/or has pockets behind them. I wanted the teeth removed because I didn't want them to move my teeth anymore. But I was quoted over a grand to remove all 4 teeth. Needless to say at this point in time I can't afford it. At the same time the teeth don't bother me (yet) and the damage is pretty much done in terms of movement/crowding.
Avatar m tn All seem to be reluctant to take out wisdom tooth. The tooth rests just over the back tooth and has chipped off the enamel of that tooth. My front teeth are beginning to buckle and am sure that it needs taking out. Please advise treatments for these problems and I can arrange to get it translated into Chinese.
