I had a swollen lump drained and now it is back and bigger, is it an abscess?

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011
Q.

I have had a lump just under my nose but in the gum line since june 2010. My dentist thought it was an abscess when she exrayed it nd gave me antibiotics and drilled a whole through my crown so the absess could drain. It did g down but never went completely. Now it is back and even bigger. I am worried it might not be a absess. Should she now not refer me to hospital. ?

Do I have any option but tooth extraction?

Thursday, March 31st, 2011
Q.

lower molar gets root canal 2 years ago. x-ray at time shows suspicious small shaded area beneath the root that may be infection. so no crown is put on in case the infection develops and removal is req’d. Now, infection starts to erupt from gum surrounding the tooth. Dentist suspects fractured tooth has been cause but not seen on xray. new xray now suggests infection spreading in bone. Is there really any option but removal?

Can you explain the flashes of pain I am getting in my tooth?

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011
Q.

Can mild tooth clenching cause gum swelling?
I’m 50, have a lot of fillings, and suddenly started having flashes of pain in a lower back tooth (6th from the front) with heat esp but also cold and sugar. It’s had fillings before. It got bad but the day before I saw a dentist it gradually went away. The dentist X-rayed it and found nothing wrong at all. Then it started up again. The pain seemed to echo in the top tooth and along my lower jaw. The next dentist likewise found nothing wrong on an X-ray, and no extra pain when he pressed the gum next to the root, but found a small piece of apple skin and removed it and told me to drip an antibacterial mouth wash into the gum/tooth lining with my tooth brush. The flashing pain cleared up but the tooth remained sensitive. Now there is swelling of the gum below the tooth low down at the jaw line and a little more pain than usual. I noticed when I relax to sleep I snug my lower jaw into my upper jaw firmly, and that the first point of contact is on that tooth. I think this was since some dental work done a year ago. Could this be the cause of the pain? Thank you for your time.

I’m not sure whether to opt for a root canal or tooth extraction, what do you think?

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011
Q.

hello
I have been visiting a dentist for months who said i had sensitive teeth, and was told to use toothpaste, however the pain became so bad that i had to call the emergency services.

I went back to the practice and was seen by another dentist (private)who said the tooth had to be pull due to having an abcess. I became tearful because they seem to just want to pull your teeth.
The dentist relieved the pain after approx 1 hour by opening the abcess and dressing the tooth.
He then said an RCT((UL6) was required at £550 and the earliest this could be done was march. Since then the same tooth broke to the gum line, it was refilled and now I am in pain again.
I have also discussed having implants to replace the missing teeth but will now than likely be looking else where for this

Should i continue with the rct of just have the tooth extracted?
I look forward to your reply

thank you
