what does it mean when your face is swollen and your teeth hurt ?

Could be sinus

Dental
Could be acute sinusitis. However the cause depends on the rest of the history and exam. For ex: if one had a recent trauma, those symptoms could be due to a facial injury. Best to see your doc for evaluation.

what does it mean when your left side of your face is swollen?

Many things

Head-face
Without more information it's hard to know exactly what it means. The side of the face could mean a dental infection, an infection of the saliva gland, a skin infection, a benign growth as well as many other possibilities. If you are concerned about it then I would recommend seeing your primary care doctor or an ENT doctor for a complete evaluation.

Go to dentist

Head-teeth
A simple visit to the dentist could answer your question very quickly, we can visually and radiographically if necessary detect if this is a dental issue....my guess would be probably not but go get it looked at!!

Dr. Michio Abe answered:

What could it be/mean if my right side of my face & left hand are swollen when I wake up? I'M also in pain and stiff every morning. But not my face.

Rheumatoid arthritis

Extremity-upper-hand
Sounds very much like rheumatoid arthritis. But you may have other autoimmune or systemic diseases (lupus or psoriasis) or infectious diseases (parvovirus B19, hepatitis C, Lyme, etc). So you definitely need to see a doctor for evaluation and treatment.

Face half swollen 3 year old?

Angioneurotic Edema?

Head-face
I assume that there is no trauma or injury? Is he having any trouble breathing. I rec you get to an ER as soon as possible. He may develop breathing problems from obstruction due to swelling.

Dr. Jan Lei Iwata answered:

Right side face and lip swollen?

Call your doctor

Head-face
Best to call your doctor, so you can be evaluated to see what is causing the swelling on your right side of your face and your lips. It's not normal to have swelling on one side, as there may be m dental implications as well. So this has to be investigated further by your doctor. Depending on your medical, family, trauma, social, sexual histories, s/he will be able to put it altogether for you to determine the diagnosis, and treatment plan.
