Hard lumps: It is really hard to tell where your infection may be coming from, but among the list of possibilities is that your body rejected the bone graft, there may be another tooth along your bottom jaw infected, your gums may be infected, you may have an infection elsewhere in your head, or the lumps are not infection.

If your tooth abscess is near the gum, your dentist will also check out your gum condition in addition to your tooth because it can be cracked tooth and/or gum disease. ...Read more

Black tooth under temp crown, is it tooth decay?

Black tooth under temp crown, is it tooth decay?

It All Depends: All other answers are valid.

It's a result of not having a good seal with the temp crown and usually not a cavity. You commonly see this if the temp crown has been in place for some time where the seal is bad. ...Read more

Instead a blood clot forms in the area where the tooth was and over time tissue fills in from underneath to heal the extraction site. If you have sutures put in to close up the extraction site, you may never even see this blood clot at all. ...Read more
