Dental abscess: Teeth that have a small pimple have been infected for a relatively long time. After the tooth nerve dies, the bacteria persists and advances to out of the tooth and into the supporting jaw bone. Over time it spreads and the pimple forms as a vent for pressure relief. It is very common for this eventual pain to radiate to other teeth, but the source is usually just one tooth. See an endodontist. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

I have pericoronitis in a infected wisdom tooth in the lower left side. I have a swollen lymph node on the right side though is that possible?
See dentist: See your dentist immediately. Wisdom teeth come in between 18-20 years on the average. Have the dentist take a panorex or individual x-rays of the four wisdom teeth.

If the wisdom teeth are deemed impacted and need to be removed, I suggest having all four removed on one visit, ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

It would be wise to call your dentist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

There are occasions when changing the antibiotic to something else would help. Most emergency rooms are equipped to do any definitive dental treatment. You should contact your dentist as soon as possible. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
