Wisdom tooth extraction requires an oral surgeon when the wisdom tooth is compacted, or when the area around the tooth is infected.
You need to treat the infected tooth with a dose of antibiotics first then you can remove it!!!
Get it pulled out.
An infected wisdom tooth can definitely become dangerous to your health. Any infection could potentially be life threatening if not taken care of.
get it out
Sounds like you might have a small piece of food get into the socket, and now the socket has become infected. You need to get back to your dentist, have him clean it out and get on some antibiotics. You don't want the infection to spread. Remember your face is pretty close to your brain!
An infected socket has a potential of bone loss, if the infection persists for too long. Presence of socket means that a tooth has been extracted out recently. Normally this socket should be filled with regrowth of bone with passage of time, but if it gets infected, there is no bone deposition until infection resides. And if infection persists, the acidic medium caused by pus starts dissolving the surrounding bone tissues as well. Result will be... an adjoining tooth becomes loose!!!!
The white, hard substance in the socket after a wisdom tooth extraction is part of the healing process. As the gum heals, a white film will cover the hole.
After tooth extraction (wisdom teeth removed)
Sometimes bacteria gets in the socket or there is a small piece of extracted tooth left in the socket. It is important to be treated with an anti biotic to heal your infection.
yes, because bacteria can get down into the impacted tooth and cause it to become infected. I would suggest going to the dentist to get it checked out.
Contact your dentist at once. They will recommend a course of treatment that may include anti-biotic. Do this NOW. That can be a serious infection.
Ear aches are one of the symptoms of dry socket. Get that checked out asap!
About two weeks.
No if you do you will get dry socket and that is the most painful experience I ever had. Getting the wisdom teeth out was nothing compared to the dry socket. I fell down in the shower with pain and I had to go to the doctor everyday to get novacaine packed in my tooth it was so painful please dont smoke or drink through a straw after surgery.
it is probably infected
Dry socket typically manifests itself within the first 3-5 days after tooth extraction. No smoking/sucking/spitting and restful activities will dramatically reduce the chances of developing pain.
Not for about 4 days until a blot clot forms in the socket. If it gets dislodged when working out you can get dry socket and it is not good...be careful.
While it is technically possible to kiss someone with an infected tooth, it is highly discouraged. The bacteria in that person's mouth could cause serious problems in people with compromised immune systems, or people who are already sick.
Yes, Because I personally would not want a infected tooth in my mouth. I would like to get that tooth out because I would not want to have to deal with that breath taking pain.
Definitely - specifically and upper wisdom tooth. Often the roots of wisdom teeth run into the sinus cavity and even some of the upper molars. If the tooth is abscessed and infected, it can cause serious problems. Infections in the mouth runs two ways, to the heart or to the brain. Always, get an abscessed tooth treated immediately.
No, drinking alcohol before the mouth is healed can lead to a dry socket. It usually takes 3-4 days for a mouth to heal after wisdom tooth extraction.
I just my last 2 for an infected tooth socket, (dry socket) I have now had 16oomg...will write back tomorrow if alive...OF COURSE its ok!!!
