What is it when my tooth hurts bad when I drink anything or breathe ?

Cavity?: There are many reasons for your tooth ache. Hot and cold sensitivity in your teeth , when you drink hot or cold liquids or breathe in cold air, can be caused by a cavity, root exposure sensitivity, a nerve in your tooth dying, or just a temporary hypersensitvity. If it is consistent or has lasted over a week, call your dentist. They will be able to find the source and correct it. ...Read more

Call your surgeon : If you think that you are having the symptoms of an allergic reaction such as hives, itching or difficulty breathing, you should call your surgeon immediately. Pain in itself is not a symptom of an allergic reaction. ...Read more

I had a root canal last summer. Now that tooth is causing pain. It hurts to breathe air in through my mouth, eat from that side, or drink. I thought since the roots were gone, it could not hurt. What could be wrong?

You : You need to return to your dentist and have and x-ray and and examination performed on the tooth. The roots of your teeth are still there - during the root canal - the dentist cleaned the soft tissue out of the roots of the teeth with slender files and sterilized the roots with medications. During this follow up examination - the dentist will check to make sure that the tooth has been properly restored, that re-infection has not occurred, and that there are no hairline fractures on the tooth, and that your bite is correct. After gathering and assessing all of this information - the dentist should be able to develop a plan that will get you out of pain. ...Read more

Bad breath: A foul odor coming from the mouth is usually bacterial. Very often from bacteria housed in tartar (calculus). Getting your teeth cleaned by a hygienist regularly is very important. Another area can be the back of the tongue. Be sure to brush your tongue or use a tongue scraper. ...Read more

This last week, everything I drink tastes like mold. My breath is horrible and I have a moldy taste in my mouth. I take excellent care of my teeth.

Get to dentist: Hard to say without your history and exam, but appears to be a gingivitis or periodontitis issue (need to have the teeth and gums thoroughly checked and cleaned.) Could be other problems brought on by meds, supplements, home care, etc. Get evaluated and also brush your tongue ...Read more

Took 1/2 a vicodin for bad tooth pain, feeling anxious about it. Taking it with antibiotic, but afraid of narcotics. Anything to worry about?

No Contraindications: Those 2 medications are not known to be contraindicated with each others use; however, i agree with the other doctor above that this behavior may not be good, unless you have already seen a dentist and were prescribed these medications for an imminent procedure that will fix your obvious tooth problem. Make sure you are taking care of yourself, get your tooth fixed asap-you don't want to lose it. ...Read more

See your dentist: You may have root sensitivity from brushing too hard with a hard toothbrush. If so, brushing gently with sensodyne toothpaste may help. Best to see a dentist for a proper diagnosis. ...Read more
