Re: Shadow on x-ray but no pain?

I'm an RN and not a radiologist, but it seems to me you have an area of greater density, which causes a darker area ("shadow") on an X-Ray. An area of less calcium would probably appear lighter on an X-Ray. Pure speculation, it could just be some sort of calcification (area of extra calcium, which ...

Shadow on x-ray but no pain?

Hi, I went for a regular check-up and took a full x-ray. Dentist say everything seems good. Gum is healthy too. However, he say he could see some shadow on my left lower first molar (the one that I doodle on). He did a cold test and tapping test on it. All was fine. I could feel the coldness but it ...

Brown spot on tooth. Cavity?

Hi guys, I just had my lower right first molar extracted two weeks ago. It was a failed root canal tooth. After extraction, I noticed that there's a brown spot on my last molar. It was not on the chewing surface, it was like in between the first and second molar. But now that the first molar is gone...

Re: Root canal tooth infected??

I'm not a dentist so please take what I say with a pinch of salt. The link to your pre-root canal xray is not working, but in your current xray pic, there is infection at one of the roots where there is a darker area at your jaw bone. Without the pre-root canal pic, can't tell if it's smaller and c...

Root canal tooth infected??

Hi, Two weeks ago I felt some pulsing feel on my 4 months old root canal tooth. When I press on the gum, it feels tender as well. I informed my ortho (who is also my general dentist who did this root canal) about it, she didn't took any x-ray but told me that it must be too stressed up by elastic. N...

Re: Can a root canal tooth still feel sore from braces adjustment?

I just got back from my braces adjustment, mentioned about this root canal tooth aching to my dentist and she say that it might be a pressure from movement as I'm closing a large extraction gap. Now the pulsing feeling is back after adjustment. She asked me if it is aching or pain. I told her is not...

Re: Can a root canal tooth still feel sore from braces adjustment?

Throbbing and pressure is not normal. You should check in with your dentist. If it was re-infected, you can get it re-treated, don't extract it. Was your initial root canal done by a general dentist or an endodontist? I would suggest getting an endodontist to do the retreatment if your first root c...

Re: Can a root canal tooth still feel sore from braces adjustment?

I don't believe it's the teeth that hurt when you get braces, but the tissues around them. When you get a root canal you don't feel pain "from within" but you still feel the pain from around the tooth, and that's what hurts with braces. I agree with this -- the teeth have ligaments that stretch and...

Re: Can a root canal tooth still feel sore from braces adjustment?

Yes, let’s do keep each other updated! Your description of the sensitivity is pretty accurate; it’s some sort of a hollow ache/ pain. And mine only feels that way when pressure is applied perpendicular to the tooth from the outside, i.e when brushing, and not from any other angles. I just had my ad...

Re: Gum pulling away from second lower molar with pus

I just went to another dentiat at our health-care center. I mentioned it to her is it possible that it could be another wisdom tooth coming out and she said is those kind of cases are rare. She measured my gum pocket and she said it is not deep and she don't see any pus too. She told me that this ki...

Re: Gum pulling away from second lower molar with pus

[quote=kplatt2010 post_id=504354 time=1535887464 user_id=32146] Hey There- sounds like you may have some serious periodontal disease going on with receding gums as a symptom. Sometimes the causal factor is because of too vigorous brushing and / or a combo effect of a bacterial infection that is resu...

Re: Gum pulling away from second lower molar with pus

[quote=djspeece post_id=504297 time=1535630030 user_id=20342] I can tell you that pus is not normal regardless and usually indicates an infection, and I would be concerned that you are developing an abscess. I'm not sure of the connection with a wisdom tooth, as if it is normal to have pus with a wi...

Re: Gum pulling away from second lower molar with pus

[quote=kplatt2010 post_id=504310 time=1535668878 user_id=32146] I'm wondering why dentist did not take an x-ray?? You should follow-up with someone else; perhaps the oral surgeon who took out the wisdom tooth? It sounds like it's been a while but that's not normal. If you start developing a fever an...

Gum pulling away from second lower molar with pus

My gum at the back of my mouth, second lower molar, have feeling weird lately. Sometimes when I push against the back gum, there will be pus coming out. I did consult my dentist 2 days ago, she told me there is indeed little pus coming out from the gum line and she thought it was due to wisdom tooth...
