Sore right side of my tongue. Pain is excruciating. Dental work done recently. What does this mean? Help!

More info please !: How recent was your treatment completed? Today? A week ago? Were you given injections to numb the area? Did you have any teeth extracted? Answers to these questions would help narrow down the possible causes. If the pain is excruciating, take otc pain meds and call your dentist as an emergency. ...Read more

Today I had dental work done and the gums near my tooth r sore and irritated. I feel pain radiating in teeth on that side. Can that also be from gums?

Today I had dental work done and the gums near my tooth r sore and irritated. I feel pain radiating in teeth on that side. Can that also be from gums?

Yes: It's not uncommon to have some soreness after dental treatment. Obviously it depends upon what the actual treatment was. It should get better within a couple of days. It is always best to speak to the dentist who actually performed the treatment concerning what to expect and for how long afterwards. ...Read more

Can be neuralgia,,,: What you're describing might be a form of neuralgia where a nerve supplying muscles, etc. On your face or head or jaws gets stimulated and causes abnormal neural sensations such as pain and numbness. This may be a one time thing or it can go on throughout a person's life. It would be wise to see your doctor for an exam, especially if it happens again or you're worried. ...Read more

I just had dental work, woke up with the gums on that side swollen. After eating, it hurts to swallow. What is it?

Prob due to the work: Dental work causes trauma to the area....But just to be sure call your dentist's "after hours" number and talk to them..They will know exactly what was done and be able to guide you...Unlikely but could be an infection....Don't be hesitant to call eventhough it is sunday. ...Read more

I have inflammation at my c5-C6 with a herniated disc on the left which is the side the Mri noted this lymph node. I had a dental work up today all normal. I am going to see the ENT next week.   I have a normal CBC?

Depends: As a Dentist who does perform phlebotomy in my practice, we usually do not do CBC type blood work, unless there is something specific we are looking for based on the patient's health, and if we are doing that blood work, we will send it out to be done. If your PC did the blood work, they usually send that out, same as I would, but more often as that is part of regular exams in many cases. ...Read more

Can there be anything that can be done about unecessary dental work?

Can there be anything that can be done about unecessary dental work?

"Unnecessary" work?: Ethics, a concern in every industry from car repair to medicine. However, as a patient you are free to get a second or third opinion before undertaking any dental treatment. The possibility of 2 or 3 appropriate treatment options for a certain situation is very high, it does not mean 1 is more, or less necessary than the other one. Be informed, the choice is yours! not the dentist's. ...Read more
