What arch

Head-face
the answer is yes sometimes that happens especially if the tooth is near a foramina, opening in the bone where the nerve comes out. There are other reasons for hypothesia, diminshed sensations, and parathesia, loss of sensation,.More likely in lower arch.

When can an abscessed tooth be removed? I have been taking 250 mligrams of penicillin 4 times a day since 2pm 4/9/12.I will take the last pill at 2 am4/16/12. The abscess has not come to a head.My gum is still swollen and my cheek and under my chin. Tha

Depends

Penicillin is common to short circuit the abscess progression and to allow time to figure out what is possible and desirable to to do next. If the tooth is restorable, then treat the source of infection, a root canal would be appropriate and save the tooth. If it is un-restorable, then removal is indicated. Both procedures remove the source of infection rather than treat abscess. Let dentist Rx.

I have a really bad abscessed tooth (Can the infection spread to my bone and my face?

Yes

Head-teeth
This needs to be seen by a dentist ASAP. Not only can it spread to bone and soft tissues adjacent to the involved teeth, but it can also spread to the brain and potentially into the blood stream and create heart valve infection. Get this taken care of, and wish you well.

I have an abscessed tooth and my face is swollen. Will applying warm or cold compress to it help?

Not really

Get to your detist and get the problem resolved properly. Infection probably is already into your blood stream which although highly unlikely but can kill you. Dont risk it get to your dentist.

Can a tooth infection cause numbness on the head?

ANY

Dds-md
onset of numbness, especially on the head, and especially of unknown etiology (cause) warrants immediate investigation. If you suspect an infected tooth as the cause see your dentist IMMEDIATELY. If you are just guessing and have no real reason to make the association, see your primary care physician IMMEDIATELY. Could be simple answer or serious, find out which one.

Dr. Louis Gallia answered:

Can an partially impacted wisdom tooth cause face numbness?

Not usually

Facial_numbness
I have seen infected wisdom teeth rarely cause numbless, mostly of the lower lip. This is rare however. See your doc or an oral surgeon to assess facial numbness.
