I Would Like To Know How Soon I Should Get A Referral For A Dental Implant After Having A Tooth Extracted?

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I have just had my lower 6 removed today with a great deal of drilling and discomfort and it’s still bleeding 6 hours later. This is following several failed attempts at a root canal to make ready for a crown. That treatment started in May 2013! Once again I had toothache last week and again over the weekend so asked them for an extraction today. I heal very quickly, my dentist was surprised how fast I healed when my wisdom teeth were extracted. I’d like to know how soon I should get a referral for an implant? My dentist said to wait 4 months before doing anything but I wondered if sooner would be beneficial?

Many thanks.

I Am Scared Of The Dentist And I Don’t Want People Judging Me. Is It Possible To Get Knocked Out Throughout The Treatment?

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew. I have really bad toothache, but I am scared of dentist from when I was little through a bad experience. I have been to ashamed to go as I have several chipped teeth and now they look really bad. I don’t want people judging me. I have left it them to go rotten but I must have some of the the roots left in my gums. I am very wary of a male dentist going near me as well, I just want nice teeth. If I could be knocked out and wake up with nice teeth that would be my ideal dream. Is this possible? Any advice would help me greatly. Thank you.

My Jaw Clicks Which Affects How I Chew And Speak. Is This A Sign Of TMJ Disorder?

Friday, May 23rd, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark, I wonder if you could help me out. I have been receiving pain in my jaw and the left side of my head, and this is affecting how I chew my food and speak. It clicks sometimes when I open and close my jaw which is quite annoying and it is quite painful. I don’t have any other symptoms besides these. I do get toothache sometimes but on the other side of my jaw. This usually occurs on my left side which affects how I chew on that side. Is this a sign that I could have TMJ Temporomandibular joint dysfunction? Thank you.

My Wisdom Tooth Hurts Really Bad But I’m Not Sure I Should Take A Painkiller As It May Cause Addiction. What Should I Do?

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr. Mark,

I am having some problems with my lower right wisdom tooth. It hurts really bad, but I also don’t want it to be extracted as I am working at the moment and I cannot take some days off – I am sure I will have to stay at home at least one week after the operation – so I bought a pain killer: Ibuprofen and Codeine (200mg / 12.8 mg tablets). In the description it says that I cannot take it more than 3 days (2 at a time and three times a day) as it might cause addiction. Should I still use it? I would appreciate your help. Regards.

I Have Swelling Under My Jawbone And Some Toothache When I Lie Down, What Could This Be?

Monday, September 30th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr Marcus, I have a toothache on my right side coming from one of the lower back teeth (I’m sorry, I don’t know the proper name) and there is a little swelling underneath my jaw bone on the same side. I believe I had the same problem a few months ago but without the swelling, and the pain went away by itself. It feels like the pain tends to get more intense when I’m lying down or when I stand up from lying down, I was really hoping you could help me try and diagnose this problem?

I Had A Bad Experience With A Dentist And Have A Very Painful Tooth. Will The Dentist Make The Pain Worse Poking Around At It?

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013
Q.

Hello Dr,
I am 6 1/2 months pregnant and my upper back tooth is quite sore. in fact i am in intense pain everynight. Before pregnancy this tooth has a hole in it and a few years ago it gave me problems. However, I have maintained it myself as I had a horrid experience with a dentist when I was 19. I am 28 years old now. Can you advise me on what i should do. I am currently taking amoxcillin 250mg three times a day prescribed by my GP. Any advice and possible dental treatment that I could get when pregnant would be most appreciated. My concern is that after a trip to the dentist and poking at this tooth, i will be left is worst pain than i am in now.
Many thanks,

I’ve been on penicillin and the pain is gone but the tooth is still sore, is this normal?

Tuesday, September 6th, 2011
Q.

Hi, I have had terrible tooth ace on my front tooth for some time and I can feel a pulsing sensation on the nerve behind the tooth. so I went to the dentist and they adviced me to have root canal treatment on the tooth feeling this would sort the problem out. At the same time I also had an infection, so when they gave me the anaesthetic the tooth did not go numb, so I was then told they would have to control the infection before
treatment was carried out. they put me on penicillin which ive been on for for 3 days now and the pain is gone but the tooth is still a little sore, is this normal?
