Tooth abscess and gum abscess? Could one have caused the other?

Why does a tooth abscess not spread and cause an infection of the other teeth?

Why does a  tooth abscess not  spread and cause an infection of the other teeth?

You're right...: Most tooth abscesses rarely affect adjacent teeth. This is a remarkable sign of a healthy immune system that can hold the infection 'at bay.' the infection tends affect the supporting bone and not destroy blood supply or nerves. If the cause of the infection is removed (extraction or root canal) our bodies can heal the affected bone while the blood/nerves still survive. Amazing isn't it? ...Read more

I have been on antibiotics for wisdom teeth surgery removal. I have a mild case of oral thrush and I am going to start swab treatments today. In a week, would it be okay for me to kiss my boyfriend? Would he be at risk of getting oral thrush from me?

I have been on antibiotics for wisdom teeth surgery removal. I have a mild case of oral thrush and I am going to start swab treatments today. In a week, would it be okay for me to kiss my boyfriend? Would he be at risk of getting oral thrush from me?

It is ok in a week: Thrush generally occurs when the normal bacterial flora in your mouth is changed due to taking antibiotics or when your immune system isn't working correctly. If your boyfriend has a normal immune system and you use the swabs for a week, he should be fine. Also, it is probably not a good idea to french kiss if your surgery is recent. ...Read more

Will swishing around oral thrush nystatin on my tongue kill the bacteria on my teeth enamel as well?bacteria is erode my silver fillings make sick

Misinformation: The internet is full of misinformation about silver fillings. If they wear away they do NOT cause bodily harm. Bacteria will not erode fillings. Mouthwash will not erode fillings. Thrush is caused by the Candida fungus (yeast), not by bacteria. Nystatin will not clean your teeth or remove the bacteria that causes tooth decay or gum disease. Please see your Dentist for evaluation. ...Read more
