Wisdom tooth wrapped around nerve

Common Questions and Answers about Wisdom tooth wrapped around nerve


Avatar n tn If nerves are close to or wrapped around the tooth, you could end up with permanent nerve damage if not properly removed. Personally, I wouldn't risk letting a General Dentist do it.
Avatar n tn My fiancee had oral surgery to remove a wisdom tooth which had its root wrapped around a nerve. Well it's been 5 days since his surgery and he can't open his mouth up to even eat, and not to mention his face is swollen bad. He woke up in the middle of the procedure, so they had to continue without giving him anything for the pain. We were wondering if it is normal for someone not to be able to open up there mouth after this procedure.
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 Crowding and impacted wisdom tooth are not generally the culprit of pain, unless infection is involved.
Avatar n tn Three years ago,i had a wisdom tooth extraction amd i have a numb on my lower lip and cheek.It is not getting better so i am afraid that this will be permanent.My dentist (one of the best Greek doctors,well-known in dental-society,who teaches at the university) always says to me that i shall recover but i am tired waiting.Is there something to do?Yesterday i start taking B12 vitamin and doing massage in the area (i have read somewhere that maybe helps).
Avatar m tn It depends on the situation and how close that tooth is to the nerve. Sometimes on a panoramic x-ray, the tooth will appear to be close to the nerve. Since the panoramic x-ray is two dimensions, it doesn't provide as much information as a CT scan which can be view in 3D on a computer screen. That would help the doctor determine where the tooth is more precisely.
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 n tn It sounds to me like the nerve in the tooth with the crown is non- vital, which means the nerve is dead and that the tooth needs root canal therapy. I would get to see him asap.
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 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 f tn When I first tried to get my wisdom pulled the dental surgeon realized that my wisdom tooth was in my nerve and that i would suffer damage if pulled. I was told to prolong it as much as I could however, I get horrible migraines (I've suffered from migraines since 13) and I need my tooth taken out. My question is will it be to dangerous to get my wisdom tooth pulled being that I have neutropenia?
Avatar f tn Common cold, sinusitis, ear infection, sensory nerve compression, peripheral neuropathy as in diabetes, inflamed wisdom tooth, impacted wisdom tooth, dental caries, 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. Maybe the accidental injury aggravated any of the above reasons.
Avatar m tn If it does start causing problems, it could damage the roots of the teeth in front of them, resulting in damage and possible removal of both the wisdom tooth and the tooth in front of it. It just depends on how the infection occurs and where it spreads. Bone shards can hurt but can also be easily fixed by removing them. They also can fall out on their own if you're patient enough.
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 f tn Sounds like a plan. Be sure you keep an eye on it and if it progressively gets work, your hunch of needing a root canal may be right if the nerve wasn't damaged by the wisdom tooth but rather that the nerve inside the tooth is irritated by the filling.
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.
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 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 Wisdom teeth are so far in the back of the mouth that they are difficult to brush, floss and do dental work on. Doesn't mean it's impossible, just more difficult. Generally we don't need these teeth and they just cause problems, which is why our modern society believes in extracting them. Sometimes, I've heard, if you lose another molar, the wisdom tooth can migrate into it's spot and take its place.
Avatar n tn My daughter has 4 impacted wisdom tooth. The lower one are impacted to the point that the oral surg said there could be some nerve damage done when the teeth are extracted. what kind of problems orther than numbness would there be.
Avatar n tn I'm 10 weeks and 6 days pregnant and I've been having problems with my wisdom tooth. I've been in pain for almost a week and I really want it removed. Is it safe to get it removed right now or would I have to wait?
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.
