What should you do about a cracked wisdom tooth and a swollen gum?
See a Dentist or Oral Surgeon as soon as possible and expect work to be done on your teeth.
Yes. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause swollen lymph nodes in your head. It is most likely caused from infection. You should go see a dentist, oral surgeon, and/or doctor. The nodes could be swollen for another reason, so if getting them removed doesn't help the swollen lymph nodes you need to see a doctor to find out what is causing the problem.
It's normal for there to be difficulty swallowing after a wisdom tooth extraction because the tissues surrounding the area are swollen. Give it a couple days and after the swelling has subsided it should be easier and less painful for you to swallow. This is just temporary along with mouth, jaw, and tongue numbness.
I haven't yet had my wisdom tooth out, but I have had alot of pain with it. For the past few months a lymph node in my neck has been swollen. Both the dentist and the doctor has assured me that it is because of and infection in my wisdom tooth. maybe you have just got an infection from getting the tooth removed.
What would cause a new tooth to break out of your gums if you have had your wisdom teeth taken out already and are 26?
if you have another tooth pushing it out , and it the tooth is comming from a different spot. It might be a surnumerary tooth - an extra wisdom tooth. But this should have been seen on a panoramic x-ray if it was taken in your late teens. It also might be a peace of root that was left out from the extraction of the wisdom tooth that was there.
What should you do if you have a cracked wisdom with the outer side gone and recently has been giving you a great amount of pain?
No, that can't really happen. Teeth can get cracked my a number of different things. No It is very unlikely that front teeth get cracked due to pressure caussed by wisdom teeth. Usually it takes a trauma to crack a tooth. NO although they cannot crack your teeth, they WILL cause pressure and cause your other teeth pain and make them crooked
Should you be concerned if it feels like there is a small tooth fragment remaining after wisdom tooth extraction?
Get an X RAY done after the wisdom tooth removal if you want to clear your apprehensions. However a small tooth fragment remaining is not generally problematic. BUT in most cases your feeling of tooth fragment is likely to be that of a bony spicule . not tooth. If that is the case it can be smoothened easily by your dentist.
Yes, they can be and should be removed. The only reason it's suggested to get them out when you are younger is because you are more likely to recover faster and there is less chance of caries. If you have cavity on a tooth, it should be treated, either by repairing the tooth, or in cases of semi-impacted wisdom teeth, the tooth should be extracted.
How long does only one impacted and bony Wisdom Tooth surgery Take Has anyone ever had this surgery before anybody with any experiences?
Hello, I am a 24 year old student from California. I recently went through oral surgery to remove a wisdom tooth. Turns out that my wisdom tooth was impacted meaning that it was covered by my gums. The Oral Surgeon had a very difficult time extracting the bone. Anyways, my mouth was numb and swollen right after the surgery. They prescribed me medication to relieve the pain and some antibiotics. The swollen went away after…
It is not impossible if the tooth has erupted into the mouth, but it is important to determine if filling a wisdom tooth is the best course of action. Often, removing a wisdom tooth is preferable to filling because the tooth may not be in a functional relationship (ie., it does not bite against another tooth). Also, wisdom teeth are often very difficult to keep clean, and the likelihood of decay re-occurring is quite high…
Is it possible for an upper wisdom tooth that is coming in to prevent full range of motion in your jaw?
If the Dentist says the tooth cracked because of grinding and not because of the filling he put in 2 weeks ago is this correct?
After you have wisdom teeth pulled is it normal for your eye to be bruised and your cheek to be swollen?
Yes, bruising and swelling are very common complications of wisdom tooth extraction. The swelling will be at its worst 48-36 hours after the extraction before it begins to die off. Apply an ice pack to the swollen area. I hope I have been of some assistance. Dr Nicholas Manning BDS Glasg MFDS (RCSEng)
Since the wisdom tooth grows at the very back, the most common symptomatic pain is tenderness at the very back. If you can't chew properly or you can't close your mouth properly, it can be a sign of wisdom tooth pain. However, the best way to know if you are growing wisdom tooth is by checking with your dentist. Your teeth pain can be caused by a lot of things like tooth decay or cavity.
Your molar tooth has an abscess and it should be extracted because on that side your wisdom tooth is pushing beside the abscessed tooth Is an implant or bridge better?
You can only put a bridge on if there is a tooth on each side to support it. Therefore, a bridge cannot replace a wisdom tooth, because it's the last one on the dental arch. If you keep your wisdom tooth and you need to extract the molar right before, then you can replace that molar with a bridge. In any other case, an implant would be a better treatment.
