How do you bring down swelling after you get a tooth pulled?
Take something like Motrin or even Pamprin. You want something
that is anti-inflamatory. If it has been over 24 hours, very gently
swish with warm salt water also about 2-3 times a day. When I got
my wisdom teeth pulled, he gave me a medicine for the swelling. I
don't know if your dentist would do that for one regular tooth, but
you could always ask him or her.
Swelling occurs after a tough wisdom tooth extraction, especially if it was located in the lower jaw. The swelling reaches its maximum around the fourth day after the surgery and then slowly goes down for about a week. After Surgery you should initially apply ice, then after 24 hours apply moist heat. This will help in reducing the swelling. Swelling usually appears the next day after surgery and is a natural process of healing. For…
When a tooth is pulled it's gone. When you have a root canal the root of the tooth has become infected, the dentist uses a conventional cavity drill to get down to the nerves then uses a very small, flexible drill-like wire to drill down through the nerve of the tooth. Actually, the dentist goes down through each of the nerves since there are usually a couple nerves in a tooth. After the nerves are…
Can a severe swelling reaction to a first bee sting mean the child is allergic benadryl did not bring the swelling down at all?
How long does it take for facial swelling to go down after being put on antibiotics for a tooth infection?
I've had tooth infections that cause my cheeks to swell like a chipmunk. If you get the right antibiotic it can be as little as 2 doses - 24 hours for the swelling to go down. Sometimes it can take 3 or 4 doses to go down - about 48 hours. If you have been on an antibiotic for 3 days and there is no change in the swelling, you should call your doctor. You…
Due to local anesthetic, it can be difficult to smile, talk, or even open and close one's mouth following wisdom tooth extraction. This usually resolves itself as soon as the anesthetic wears off and the swelling goes down. This can take up to a week or more, depending on how difficult the extractions were.
Do not remove it when it is swollen. You can cause tiny tears in your skin, which can increase swelling even further, and cause infection. To relieve the swelling, take an Ibuprofen, and put a warm compress over the piercing. These two combined should bring down the swelling enough to where you can take the jewelry out. Good luck!
How long does it take for swelling in your cheecks to go down after getting your wisdom teeth removed?
I had my Wisdom teeth pulled when I was 15, I'm 27 now. Most of the numbness went away after the swelling went down, though I still have a dime sized area on my jaw line that never regained sensation. I have spoken with my dentist about it a few time, most recently was earlier this year, and he said while my case is rare, it can happen.
How do you know you need to have a tooth pulled and replaced with a bridge if it causes you no pain?
If I were you, I'd get a second opinion just to be sure. That is a lot of money. But if you had a root canal, it won't cause you pain until it's very infected down into the bone. On average it should cost you about 100 dollars to have the tooth pulled and about 1500 for the bridge. Most likely if you were told by one it needs to come out, it does, but…
First, the tooth should be COMPLETLY numb so that the patient does not feel any pain. Once that is accomplished, then the Dentist will use an instrument called an elevator to push the gums gently away from the tooth. When most of the gums at the top are pulled back the dentist will use another instrument that pushes the gums aways as you he goes lower down the roots of the tooth. When all sides…
It works to help with an infection in your teeth or gums. I was having really bad tooth pain last week, went to the Dentist & he prescribed Amoxicillin to take away the infection in my gum behind my tooth which has really helped tremendously. No more pain & swelling has gone down in the past few days- Thank Goodness!
