Answer . \nAn abcess is a serious dental problem, that needs to be professionaly treated, right away. If it is NOT treated, you may develop a serious blood stream infection, that may lead to permanent dmage to your heart, your brain and your eyes. A systemic blood infection may even lead to death…, if un-treated.\n. \nTreatment will include a 7 to 14 day course of multi spectrum anti biotics, to kill the infection and reduce the swelling at the site of the infection, followed by x-rays of the site, to establish the extent of the involvement, in other words, what teeth are affected by this disease.\n. \nFinally, oral surgery will be done to remove the affected tooth, or teeth, and possibly some jaw bone that had become infected as well. Replacement tooth or teeth will be in order, a few weeks after the surgery swelling goes down. A further course of anti- biotics, after the surgery will also be ordered.\n. \nDo not delay treatment of this serious condition.\n. \nJim Bunting. Toronto. (MORE)

Answer Your dentist should get a complete health history on you, take your blood pressure & plus, and record all medications you are currently on (if any) including any herbs or vitamins (can affect clotting) An X-ray will be taken of the tooth to be extracted. Basically a topical anesthetic (gel)… is applied to pre-numb the area that will be injected, then the local anesthetic (ususally lidocaine + epinephrine) is injected, and the dentist will test the gum around the tooth to see if everything is numb. When you are completely numb, the dentist will use a periosteal elevator to loosen the gum and ligament around the tooth. When the tooth appears to be 'wiggling' he will use the appropriate forceps to grab the tooth firmly and rock it back and forth. When the tooth comes out, he will place folded up gauze on top of the socket, and instruct you to bite down firmly and just sit quietly for about fifteen minutes. The assistant will check the clotting and change the gauze before giving you your post op-instructions and pain management medication prescription to go home with. If you are healthy a single extraction should not be bad at all. If you are health and young the extraction & healing post-op will go even easier. If the tooth has an abcess, the dentist will put you on a series of antibiotics before and/or after the extraction. If there is a big swelling, a little incision & drainage may be done to let the pus drain out. Hope this helps. This is going to STINK!!!!!!! For all of you out there you are not alone if you have a Baby Tooth extracted because I am having mine out by tommrrow and BOY AM I SCARED!!!!!!!!! (MORE)
What an odd question? Just about anyone can afford an expensive car if they (a) are willing to save up for it, and (b) are willing to sacrifice life's other experiences/objects!
Answer . NO, you need to know your options...could you have received a root canal to save the tooth...did he give you the option of an Implant?
If the wisdom tooth is really bad and the dentists recommending extracting it do you have to go along with this?
Answer . No you don't but you will want to. Some individuals do not have to have theirs removed but most do as they become impacted, decayed etc. If he is recommending it be done and you don't do it it can cause more than just a sore mouth problems for you - a bad tooth that disperses toxins or p…oisons such as they are get into your system and can make you very ill in other ways. It would be in your best interest to have it done - feel lucky I personally had all four removed at once and they had to remove bone to get them out as they were not nearly even ready to come in but causing me problems - now older I am so glad I had them done then. Good Luck - its not that bad. (MORE)
An abscess is a type of infection, which is filled with pus andinflamed. Another term for an abscess is a boil.
An abscessed tooth can affect many other parts of the body,especially the ear, nose and throat areas. Since the inner ear isdirectly related to balance, a severely infected tooth could causedizziness.
Abscessed teeth cannot heal on their own. It means that the tooth is dying. The root has to be removed or it could end up infecting your other teeth. Normally, a root canal would be done in this case as opposed to pulling it. If the tooth is in really bad shape, the tooth may have to be pulled.
You should check out this website, It is not insurance but a medical/dental discount plan. It allows you to get discounts for dental, vision, chiropractic, prescription and physician visits. The plans start at $14.95/month for individuals or $19.95/month for an entire household up to 20 people relat…ed or not. The dental discounts are up to 80% depending on your treatment and you get the vision, chiropractic AND pharmacy discount plans with the dental for the same monthly price. If you have any other questions about the plan you can email me. If you would like me to, I could check the participating dentists in that area, but I would need a zip code or address. They also have medical plans for as little as 29.95 /month. Let me know! Good Luck... The website is: www.DeliveringOnThePromise.com/nicolec. my email: Dental_talk@scentfuldesigns.com (MORE)
Not in your gum, in the side of your mouth close to your gum. Not in your gum, in the side of your mouth close to your gum
yes you do and be very catious , because the blistering will eventually cause a infection, which will eventually cause a swollen cheek !
Hell yeah! I am super deppresed right now. I had my wisdom tooth pulled after my dentist suggested i should, i didnt feel any pain but i went with it. I had 3 teeth extracted in one sitting and the pain was excruciating.. My mom still has hers and she was really upset that i did that.. I feel like… a part of me is missing and although the pain is getting better, i am still deppresed and wondering if i did a huge mistake.. Plus i had to stay home which means no mula, and its december.. I surrely didnt think it thrue, to avoid all that make sure you know what your getting yourself into. Do your reasearch, check your doctor and be true to yourself so you dont feel like your being forced into it. If you can only handle one, only do one. (MORE)
When you get a chipped tooth the Dentist will gentley file it smooth again. So theres really nothing to worry about
a dentist will num you up with a needle and put glue on the tooth and cover it with a wire that they use to heal it in place (you have to wear it for about a month) after that you may or may not need a root canal
pudding or soup... when its bigger enough if your in awful pain and don't want to go to the doctor you could pop it with a toothpick OS something sharp. soft stuff, the softer the better :)
Yes! You must go to the dentist. Only a dentist can give you the proper treatment.
If you are losing your baby teeth the dentist might just tell you to keep wiggling the loose tooth for it to come out completely. Your gum is sore because it is the only thing holding that tooth in. If it is a permanent tooth that is loose, it may need to be extracted or gum disease. In that case, y…es a needle may be given. (MORE)
lolz no. Yes a blood cloth can break off and cause a stroke or heart attack. http://www.atlantadentist.com/Dental_Abscess.html
I recommend going to see a doctor. If the pain was coming directly from the tooth, then I would recommend the dentist.
The best thing to do is go to the dentist. Scince your tooth already hurts, I'm guessing it's already gotten pretty bad. If you go to the doctor soon enough, they'll give you a numbing shot and then drill the cavity decay from the tooth, clean the tooth and then fill in the cavity. The procedure doe…sn't hurt at all after the numbing shot, before the numbing shot they will give you a swab with solution on it that helps numb you gum so it won't hurt so much when they inject. Annd if you're worried about spending money to get the cavity fixed at the dentist, I say it's better to get it fixed than your tooth hurting. It's only going to hurt more and more. get your tooth fixed and take good care of your teeth so you won't get another cavity. (MORE)
The best antibiotic for an abscessed tooth can depend on how badthe infection is and which the dentist prefers. Sometimespenicillin is best if the infection is bad. Amoxicillin is part ofthe penicillin family and is associated with the treatment ofabscessed teeth.
no,i had a tooth out when i was 11 and it does not hurt at all apart from when it is out.it hurts for a few seconds and feels weird. only when your tooth is out.
Treating the pain is only dealing with the symptoms rather than the root (no pun intended) of the problem. Oil of cloves and I found sniffing burning cardboard helped alleviate the pain a bit. But you need to get rig of the abscess using antibiotics or having the tooth out. (Robert Burns called too…thache ' the hell of all diseases...') (MORE)
Knocked-Out Tooth A knocked-out tooth is an emergency that requires immediate medical attention. If these emergency tips are followed right after a tooth has been knocked out, there is a good chance that the tooth can be saved. . The tooth should be picked up by the top of the tooth (crown). …The root of the tooth should not be touched. . Gently rinse the tooth off with plain water to clean it. Make sure you cover the drain so the tooth doesn't accidentally go down the drain. . The tooth should not be scrubbed or any attached tissue should not be removed. . Gently place the tooth back into the socket in the correct position, if possible. Gently try to bite down on gauze to hold it in position. . If it is not possible to put the tooth back into its socket, place the tooth into a container with milk, warm salt water or your own saliva. Get to a dentist immediately, preferable within one hour. . Call your dentist immediately. The longer you wait for implantation, the less likely you will be able to save the tooth.

let's see, you go and get a piece of long string and tie it to your tooth and tie is to the door and then slam the door. it is a little painful though but if the tooth is ready to come out, you won't feel a thing or here is a less painful way this requires no pain at all.When i was smaller i made up… my own steps to take out my canine tooth here are the steps i took and the tooth fell out in 1 DAY 1.first brush your teeth brush the tooth that is falling out a little hard 2.take some mouthwash and swish it around really hard for 30 minutes 3.wiggle the tooth i wiggled it for the rest of the day but if you don't wanna do that then wiggle the tooth like this. 1 hour wiggle the tooth for 15 minutes the next hour wiggle it for 15 minutes and keep doing that until the day is over. 4.go to sleep and take a long nap 5.in the morning the tooth should be really wiggly twist and bend the tooth for no pain on this try doing this every 12 minutes then the tooth should be out in 1 hour for the tooth to be really wiggly wake up at 7:00 or 8:00 and the tooth is out with no pain you might think you were holding a little white pebble and didn't even notice it (MORE)
Abscessed tooth only happens for three reasons; when teeth are damaged such as an untreated cavity, a person brushed their teeth properly, and lastly the gum diseases. Those are the three causes to an abscessed tooth.
There are times you have to eat medicine as pregnant and if you have a infection in your body that is not good for any of you. Talk to your dentist and doctor about it.
You can't black spots may be decay, this need to be removed with anesthetic, and a filling placed. Or it can be deep staining, which no amount of brushing will remove, you will need to see a hygienist, either way you need to visit the dentist don't worry we are a lot nicer than you think
a dentist doesnt pull a permanent teeth out, only baby teeth. if you have a wobbly permanent teeth then they'll sort of make it go firm again.
They do it via a surgical operation. They will cut some of the gum and pull the tooth down. After the operation, they will attach a chain to the tooth and a brace. I'm having this operation in a few months.
You could become septic, the infection could spread to your brain. You are also at VERY high risk for cardiovascular disease and damage if it isn't dealt with in a timely manner.
When your tooth breaks is there a chance that the dentist has to go into your gum to get the tooth out?
I recently had a trip to dentist for tooth extraction, and the oral surgeon accidentally broke the crown of my tooth while trying to pull it. Not only did the surgeon have to go into the gum, but he also had to dig around my jaw bone with a scraper and a drill for what seemed like the better part of… an hour to get the remaining fragments of the roots out. It was highly uncomfortable, but tolerable. So to answer your question, yes. There is a chance the dentist might have to go into the gum, and possibly even the bone, to get a tooth out. Go to the dentist soon anyway. Dentist may be able to save the tooth with a cap. (MORE)
Good chance of it, contact a medical professional or dentist is you are having this sort of problem
Can I have my tooth extracted if I have an absess below tooth. One dentist says ok another says the infection would have to clear first or could be dangerous to remove. Any advice please?
I had a friend with a similar problem and his dentist told him he had to wait until the infection was gone because it is very dangerous to operate on an absess tooth. It may be painful now but eventually it will be over and if you risk it and do the operation too soon it could result in worse pa…in than before. My friends dentist told him removing an absess tooth can actually kill you from infection and whatever else. (MORE)
Yes After you buy all the books and your scholarship it is very expensive . But in the long run, if you become a dentist you could earn a very good living.
yes it will reduce swelling and feel good but you're going to need a root canal
Yes, Inside a tooth (where the bacteria are breeding and causing the abscess), the environment is aerobic (there is not a good supply of oxygen), so the bacteria are aerobic bacteria (a variety that does not need oxygen). Thus when treating an abscess, one needs to choose an antibiotic that is e…ffective against aerobic bacteria. Antibiotics with good anaerobic coverage include metronidazole, clindamycin and any BL/BLI (amoxicillin/clavulanate ; ampicillin/sulbactam and piperacillin/tazobactam). (MORE)
A good idea is to take one of those round metal tooth picks (as seen at the dentist) smother it in toothpaste and apply it to the chipped area. after take a mouth wash (for ex. listerine) and put a few drops on the toothpaste you put on a second ago. wait about a minute, then swish some water around… your mouth and spit it out, scrub of the extra toothpaste with your tooth brush and swish some watter or mouth wash in your mouth for final cleaning. if when you chew with this tooth and it hurts go to the dentist as soon as you can to see if you can get it fixed or removed. hope this helped!

the dentist removes the decayed portion of the tooth using a high-speed drill or an air abrasion system, shapes the cavity walls, and replaces the tooth structure with a filling of silver amalgam, composite resin, or gold.
Leave it be for a couple a days or less, and wiggle it a bit from time to time. It should loosen alot and then you should be able to just slightly yank it out.
dental caries.. at least that's what MDs would call it. There may be more variation in degree of decay that DMDs would refer to.
It is possible to obtain a tooth implant by qualified dentist. There are also alternative replacements of various materials that can be chosen to replace a tooth.
Some dentists like to approach it with a regiment of antibiotics, while others prefer to cut open the abscess and allow it to drain. It will depend on your current dentist's preferences and practices.
Honestly the dentist told me I should take it for at least a week it depends on the infection and if it doesn't get better within the first four days go to the doctor because they may have to give you a stronger antibiotic. They put me on cyclimycin. Best of luck!
No, not at all! It will feel weird for a bit since you were so used to that tooth there.
Very likely, inside the tooth there was decay. This needs to be completely and thoroughly removed and cleaned out; -- and then filled in. Often you are given a temporary crown for a week or two, until your officially prepared crown comes back. .
Know that the tooth is coming out for a good reason and that leaving it in will cause worse problems for you.
Yes, a tooth abscess is a bacterial infection. You have many species of bacteria in your mouth and this is the cause of one of those abscess.
Well in my country the dentist will get some cotton bands and thenput some anesthesia then she will put it in your gums after thatshe will give you a shot in your gums about two times then she willjust try too pull it out...but in U.S i think she will just giveyou a shot i dont really know because i… havent been in the dentisthere but i might go to the dentist here in U.S because my mom mightsend me because im going to show her my teeth one of my tooth hurtsso yeah...hope this helps (MORE)
