Symptoms Of Gum Infection After Tooth Extraction
Roots been left in after tooth extraction. Can this lead to infection, I have a red line goin across my gum and painful sornes on side of palate?
It is possible: It is possible to get an infection however if the root tips are too close to a nerve or the sinus it is sometimes better to leave them in rather than to risk some possible permanent nerve damage or a sinus perforation. I would return to the dentist that did the extraction and have the area rechecked.See 1 more doctor answer

White spot on gum after tooth extraction. Extraction three days ago. Doesn't hurt. Looks a little like an ulcer. Is it an infection?
Probably not: After an extraction, especially this early into initial healing, the socket may have many different appearances. The tissue may appear white & sometimes food debris in the socket may also give this appearance. Unfortunately though we can't diagnose or tell you for sure whether or not you have an infection or other issue. Please see your dentist for follow up evaluation-part of Dr. ResponsibilitySee 5 more doctor answers

Post op pain: It could be a dry socket or you may just be dealing with some aggressive post operative pain associated with the difficult extraction. Difficult teeth tend to require the removal of bone and require more healing time than erupted teeth. If its been over a week and there's still pain or more pain, contact your dental surgeon.
Could my inhalers cause infection after tooth extraction? In terrible pain. Looks infected. Not a dry socket.
Keeping area clean: On the day of extraction apply ice pack on the side from outside. After 24 hours start rinsing with warm salt water.

The rinsing should be done at least 5-6 times daily especially after any food intake.See 1 more doctor answer
I had a tooth extraction. Had an abcess and afraid infection got into blood will the extraction take care of infection. If its in the blood.?
Immune system: If you are not immune-compromised, the infection-fighting components of your immune system in the blood stream will usually be quite protective. Dental abscesses have no blood supply so fairly high levels of systemic antibiotics are necessary to be effective. Once your full immune system comes into play via the blood stream the infection will usually resolve more rapidly.See 1 more doctor answer
See your dentist: Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure and is not completely risk-free. Pain, swelling and infection following surgery is usually at its worst 24 – 48 hours after surgery. After that it should subside more and more every day and after 7 days stop. Your symptoms could be a serous problem. See your dentist or an oral surgeon for post-op appointment and treatment.See 1 more doctor answer

I am still having extreme pain 3 weeks after tooth extraction with no dry socket and the socket is not closing. I don't have an infection either.
I had a tooth extraction 3 months ago, from a cracked abcessed tooth I'm still getting pains occasionaly, could this mean the infection is still there?
Possibly: If you are still having issues after 3 months you certainly need to see the dentist that removed the tooth. It could be secondary infection, it could be a small portion of the root was left in place (there are reasons we sometimes must do that) or it could be slight nerve damage. Without seeing a current x-ray, which should be included as part of standard follow up at this point, it is hard to say.See 2 more doctor answers
Swelling and pain: Increasing rather than decreasing post op discomfort coupled with swelling and tenderness in your lymph nodes are all indicative of possible infection. Often, antibiotics are given post-op to prevent this. A bad taste or odor may also be signs of possible infection. Return to the surgeon for evaluation if you have any of these symptoms.See 2 more doctor answers
See your dentist: You should return the dentist who performed your surgery for evaluation and determination of the cause of the recurring infection. X-rays or additional studies may be performed and depending on the findings, a minor surgical procedure may also be required to resolve the problem.See 2 more doctor answers
I can't seem to find the answer anywhere. What does a healthy wisdom tooth extraction site look like after 4 days of healing? How does infection look?
Extraction: If you don't have any swelling or fever then you probably don't have an infection. Typical extraction sites get food in them and look infected and nasty. Just leave the ext site alone. If you don't have swelling, pain, or fever you are probably fine. Post operative infections following surgery are very rare. Follow up with your doctor if you are concerned.
