the headache and toothache is on the right side could there be something wrong plz help
I had a silver filling, and a bit of enamel chipped directly over it, exposing some of the silver parts (so silver not exposed in two areas), and this morning all of the sudden it started to be very sensitive to liquids. Does this mean I need a root canal?
could it be just a galvanic effect from the two exposed areas of the same filling?
I think I have an abscess tooth.
The pain started on the 22nd
At first I thought a wisdom tooth was pushing its way through because the gum behind my last molar on the left was sore. Then it became slightly inflamed both my parents said don’t worry let it do its thing.
Now its the 27th and my gum is so swollen I can’t close my teeth together so I can’t eat. Also if i press down on it, in between the tooth and the gum with a q-tip some pus comes out.
My dentist is closed till Jan. 2 I have called all surrounding dentist and none take my insurance. I am going to my doctor tomorrow to see if i can get any atibiotics. If not I will go to the hospital.
Does that sound abscess and what can i do to relieve this pain and swelling???
and sore gums around that tooth?
I had a root canal done 6 weeks ago. The tooth still seems to be sensitive. I can chew on it and drink things without any pain but if I rub my tounge across it I feel a weird sensitive feeling.. Kinda like if I was biting down on foil. Its like an electricity feeling going through it. Does this sound normal or should it be checked out?
So i think i have an abscessed tooth and i want to pull it out. It isnt a permenant tooth so it is fine. How do i numb it? (it is kinda wiggly) I want it to be painless. What is a home remedy. I dont want to buy those pain creams or anything.
due to problems with my insurance i have had this abscess tooth for like 3 months. i know it is abscess because i went to the dentist soon after the little bump on my gum showed up so he prescribed me antibiotics and told me to reschedual an appointment but that never happened because of the insurance..anyway the tooth does not hurt at all in fact i have layed ice cubes on it and nothing i wondered if the nerve could be dead in it. theres no cavity in it but it has been over filled with fillings but i do know its dangerous to my health but my question is can it wait until after the holidays? i really dont want to be in pain for christmas! thanks
I’ve tried cloves, garggling salt water and paracetimals but looking for other ideas?
will it look thinner or translucent? i don’t need a crown because it’s my front tooth that needs a root canal, and my dentist said all i would need after the treatment is a filling. should i avoid certain foods after getting it done?
so I have had an abscessed tooth for a while now. Long story short it was really hard to finally get the answer that it needed to be pulled….they tried a root canal first. The surgeon was very booked so I made the appointment last month for this next week. For the last three weeks I have had a fever (99.8-101 range) constantly….I was told when I asked that it was because of the infection. They have put me on 3 rounds of antibiotics with no sauces. This last weekend my neck and throat started to hurt…not mussel pain…just hurt. I called the dentist today and he said that it sounds like it might be Meningitis. He said we should pull it tomorrow. I googled that though and it sounds serious. If it is that than will it just go away after the tooth get’s pulled. Right now my fever is 101 and I can barely move my neck…I am worried.
