Is it safe to get a dental extraction while currently recovering from a sinus infection? (on day 3/5 of z-pack.)
Is it possible for the dental surgeon putting medicated gauze pack in wisdom teeth site to prevent a blood clot from forming?
Doubtful: There would be no reason for an oral surgeon to place a dressing in your extraction site to promote more bleeding. If you have a problem following an extraction, call the office that extracted the tooth for further assistance. ...Read more
12 days after dental implant and bone graft and my gums are white and slimy? Is this normal? Swelling has decreased and on z-pack.
Please tell me if I should use hot or cold packs to reduce swelling after my wisdom teeth removal?
Wisdom teeth post op: Initially ice packs. Two bags filled with ice, or ice packs should be applied to the sides of the face. The ice packs should be left on continuously while you are awake. After 24 hours, ice will not help. You may have pain and swelling for a few days. This is a normal reaction to surgery. After 36 hours only moist heat (warm washcloth) is recommended. ...Read more
Hello. I have a lump that's been in my mouth under my teeth in the soft gum part. Some days its inflated, other days, its "deflated" with a rough patch there. I'm a smoker and I smoke on average one pack per day but I've only been smoking for three years.
See Oral Surgeon: Best to get this checked out. Typically we do not see oral cancer with areas that inflate and deflate. Might be a salivary duct blockage or a chronic abscess. Might also be two things simultaneously. As a smoker you are at a much increased risk for oral cancer. Stay smart and get the apt with the Oral Surgeon. Good Luck. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

Hello, I had wisdom teeth extraction under anasthetic today. I'm wondering how many days I have to wait before engaging in any sexual activity. I feel physically okay and I have ice packs on my face. Im wondering if the anasthetic wont result in any
3 to 4 days. : You should wait for several days for healing purposes. The first two days should be moderate activities. Doing too much like exercise or excursions, may result in increased bleeding or potential of a dry socket. I would suggest no oral sex performed for at least a week. Injury possible. ...Read more
Within weeks the periodontist will remove all teeth on UL behind my intact canine. A hole will show when smiling. Will pack bone graft.Cosmetic cover?
Same as before..: You've asked this question earlier regarding a flipper... it is not a terrific idea to have a partial denture pressing down on a bone graft that is trying to heal. It is possible to make a cosmetic flipper that is hollow in that area, is not in occlusion, and has teeth purely for cosmetic purposes. Your restorative dentist and their lab need to design it properly to avoid trauma to the graft. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Took a 5-day z-pack post wisdom teeth extraction & and recently finished it. I now have a face rash w/ little red bumps. Why/how can I get rid of it?
Switched COCs, now on mid 3rd pack. Normal to still be spotting til now (starts midcycle usually)? Pills always on time, taking no other medication.
Breakthrough bleed: Breakthrough bleeding (bleeding at the wrong time) is very normal on birth control. It happens in about 1/3 of users. Its no big deal and usually self corrects over time. If you are not satisfied or it continues to happen then consider using a different birth control method. It is a common side effect and does not mean something is wrong or that the pill is not working. ...Read more

Is there any other way to get rid of blue balls without ejaculating? Would any medication work? Could i just put ice packs?
Vascular congestion: Most frequently relieved by ejaculation. Ice pack plus lying on your side with hips slightly flexed is worth trying. 600 mg (3 x 200 mg tabs) Ibuprofen worth trying if pain persists. Problem will clear up as you get older &/or have regular sex. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Having lightheartedness and feel surroundings are moving.Did not take any new medication escept for dental work (nerve removal with additional medicin?
Probably, but why?: I think you mean miconazole 3 combo pack. (If you use a dictation speech recognition system, like Siri, you need to read what comes out!) It probably wouldn't hurt to use along with gonorrhea treatment, but it might not be wise. What you think are yeast symptoms might be from the gonorrhea and you may not need the miconazole. Check with the doctor or clinic treating you for gonorrhea. ...Read more
What is an example of a different dental bacterial medication more powerful than amoxicillin 500 mg 3 x's a day for 7 days? Amoxi. Mg. Be raised?
Antibiotics: No the dosage level is good. Could do 4 times daily. Augmentim another penc is good but harsh on tummy. Keflex family 500mg qid is strong. Clindamycin 300mg is very strong 3 times daily. These are some alternatives. All good. Sometimes the germs can become a little resistant or a change will trigger a turnaround. Talk to your dentist or md. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
