How serious is an abscessed tooth that affects the sinuses causing your face along the side of your nose to swell?
How SERIOUS is it? Come on, now. If someone tells you here that its not serious, what will that do for you? You have an absessed tooth. And it sounds like the infection is spreading to your sinuses. Don't screw around with this. Make a dental appointment. Or if money is an issue, contact a dental school to see if you can get low-cost or no-cost treatment. ~ T

It is possible. It does depend on the location of the absess. Fluid building up can pinch or compress nerves. The watery eye can be caused by a pinched nerve as well. See a …dentist or doctor as soon as possible. you can normally know when you have an abscess because of the unbearable pain
Can an abscess in the roof of your mouth due to a toothache cause more serious problems from the pus spreading into your sinuses?
This is nothing to fool around with. This infection could actually spread through to your blood stream, and then you will be in worse trouble. Call your Doctor and get this tr…eated.
Answer . \nAbscesses of the teeth occur because the tooth has become non vital, ie it has died from either a traumatic accident or decay or a leaky filling with decay under…neath. This causes dead material in the tooth to leak out throught the apical foramen (the point of the tooth that sits in the bone and is where the blood vessels and nerves of the pulp enter and leave the tooth). This causes inflammation within the boney socket that holds the tooth and leads to a collection of pus. This pus collects in the socket and causes formation of an abscess. \n. \nIf the infected material is not removed, it has to spread somewhere so it moves along the easiest path it can find. In some cases it moves along the tissue layers of the face amd into the space below the chin and jaw. This is known as cellulitis. When the infection spreads into the floor of the mouth compromising the airway and this can lead to trouble breathing and is a serious life threatening risk. As for back pain I dont know but you need to get this checked out ASAP.
Answer . Some of the possibilities are: sinus infection, blood poisioning, low grade fever, general aches and pains, gum destruction resulting in loss of the tooth and dim…inished bone around the infected tooth, non-specific complaints (meaning that it can be just about anything) and if it isn't dealt with properly, as an extreme outcome it can result in death.
Yes it can, the infection in the mouth from an abscess can cause vomiting, nausea, sweats, lightheadedness and diarrhea. It is important to seek the help of a Dr if you are ha…ving any of these symptoms and also consult with your dentist.
Can an abscessed tooth cause your chin and the whole side of your face to ache more than the tooth itself?
Yes! Go to a doctor!
\nGenerally, you are talking about inflammation. This can be caused by an external injurious force (e.g. getting hit in the face), by an infection, or an allergic reaction. Mo…re likely than not, if you are unaware of anything happening to your face and it spontaneously starts to swell, chances are your body has come in contact with something you are allergic to (either by touch, inhalation, or ingestion). Simply try to figure out what substance is causing the irritation. If this is the case, you may try taking diphenhydramine (Benadryl) or using topical hydrocortisone cream, as these are both antihistimines, or can try placing a cold cloth over the area for about 15min. The cold will help relieve the inflammation, while the medicine(s) will help stop future histamine reactions. This is not normally an emergency unless you experience moderate/severe difficulty in breathing. Consult your doctor, if curious beyond that.
You actually have to go see a doctor for that and they will remove it for you. Depending how big it is and where it is located you might need a specialist.
YES! It happened to me. You have to see a dentist because the only way to cure an abscess is for it to drain.
It could be an injury, an insect bite or some sort of dental infection. Regardless, a trip to the vet is in order.
Get the tooth fixed and the swelling will settle by itself.
one can take cefixime and metronidazole
You can take Nurofen to help reduce the swelling from a toothabscess. You will also need to get an antibiotic from your dentistwhich will not only help bring the swelling down… but will alsoclear up the infection.
It can. It can also cause acne and skin problems.
